Scandal of the Century: Huffington Post proves that Gretchen Carlson is...uhhh...something

Scandal of the Century: Huffington Post proves that Gretchen Carlson is...uhhh...something

Well, it looks like the Huffington Post caught Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson in a blatant violation of journalistic ethics.

How dare Carlson interview New York Yankee Derek Jeter without revealing that her husband is the ballplayer’s agent? The fact that she did not mention this totally invalidates Jeter’s views on Iran’s nuclear weapons, North Korea’s aggressive posturing and Climategate.

Well, actually, she didn’t ask him any of those questions. Unlike some liberal networks who seem to believe that Danny Bonaduce’s thoughts on global warming or Ted Danson’s opinions on healthcare are somehow more valid than the average American’s, Carlson asked Jeter about baseball.

The interview did get somewhat controversial when she asked Jeter the burning question that everyone was hoping she would ask. “Do you make your bed in the morning?”

This was far too much for the Huffington Post who lambasted Carlson’s lack of journalistic integrity.

Is it just us, or is this softball interview with Jeter tougher than the one Harry Smith conducted with Barrack Obama. Shouldn’t Smith have mentioned his massive man-crush on The Greatest President In History?

wow, from the comments:

“you ever heard of full interest disclosure?”

really? so a talk/opinion/news morning show has to abide by the journalistic rule that requires you to admit any conflicts of interest or disclose any prior meetings or interviews?

you know, because apparently jeter has no free will, is not already famous, or is too stupid to realize that he is apparently getting gipped in this interview

plus, gretchen ALWAYS does the interviews, and it seems pretty stupid to say that she cant do the interview because her husband works for the guy.

It’s not as if she interviewed Al “the planet has a fever” Gore and failed to ask him about Climategate. No journalist would do that.

Ahh yes the Huffington Post. Arianna Huffington is a douchebag-so it is no wonder that they have to attack the “right” in this way-because they are under such immense scrutiny at all times for their brown ring around their noses!
I love it-you guys made me smile for the first time today-gracias(brushing up on my Spanish since barry is going to let them all stay and get free health care).
