HuffPo's New Travel Section Another Spot for Liberal Agenda

What sets The Huffington Post's new travel section apart from the rest? That in addition to travel tips and destination profiles, readers also get a health dose of the sites liberal agenda.

With President Obama coming under fire from Republicans for taking yet another family vacation – this time to Maine – HuffPo jumped to his defense by highlighting a comparison between Obama and his predecessor Bush – in the travel section.

 “The Obamas just returned to Washington from their weekend long excursion to Maine,” Kate Auletta wrote. “While the President was given grief about a) taking a vacation and b) taking a vacation that wasn't to the Gulf, Obama's vacation days have really been, in comparison to his predecessors, few and far between. CBS took a look back at the history of presidential vacations.”

The post also contained a clip of a CBS news video justifying Obama's frequent vacations by comparing him to Bush, who was widely criticized by the media for trip to his Texas ranch.

When CNN mentioned the first family's vacation, it was under their political ticker blog, not in the travel section.

“It will be a one-stop shop, bringing you up-to-the-minute travel news, travel tips and advice, the hottest deals, reviews of hotels, cruises, spas, and airlines, compelling photographs, blog posts about travel, and more, ” HuffPo founder Arianna Huffington said in the launch announcement.

It is evident that the “more” Huffington was referencing was political bias.
