HuffPo "Revoked Publishing Access" Of Journalist After 'Hillary Health' Story: "It's Orwellian...I'm Scared"

Tyler Durden's picture

Over the weekend we posted about how the media's coverage of Trump and Clinton's health had become "outright bizarre" (see "American Electorate Loses As Partisan Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Turns Outright Bizarre").  We also asked whether Google had taken measures to censor searches related to Hillary's health condition (see "Is Google Censoring Search Results To Protect Hillary?").   Turns out that the Huffington Post may have just joined in on the bizarre behavior by censoring a journalist with the audacity to question Hillary's health.

On Sunday night, an obviously shaken Huffington Post contributor, David Seaman, posted a video to YouTube after the HuffPo had taken measures to revoke his publishing access and delete two articles he had previously published on Hillary's health...a move that left him "a little scared" and "spooked out".

According to Seaman, he has a long standing relationship with the Huffington Post which has included "100's of successful articles" that have been published under the banner. 

Seaman reported the move by Huffington Post by live streaming a video of his reactions on YouTube (full video below). 

"Huffington Post, where I was a contributor, they have revoked my publishing access and they've deleted both of my articles that were published earlier over the weekend.  Both of my articles have been pulled without notice of any kind.  Just completely deleted from the internet.  And both of those articles mention Hillary's health which is both a hashtag on Twitter and I linked to a video that a YouTuber, Paul Joseph Watson, had uploaded back on August 4th showing signs that Hillary Clinton's health is quite poor."

 

"Whenever a video concerning a presidential candidate's health is viewed more that 3.5 million times somebody who is under contract to the Huffington Post and AOL should be able to link out to that."

Seaman goes on to point out that completely removing a published article from the internet is unprecedented and leaves him "a little scared" of being the next person to be "vanished" for criticizing the Clinton campaign. 

"I've honestly never seen anything like this.  This is happening in the United States in 2016.  It's frankly chilling.  I'm a little scared.  I'm doing this video also to say, I'm not suicidal right now; I am not a particularly clumsy person; I don't own a car at the moment.  So if I'm to slip in the shower over the next couple of days or something silly like that you have to really employ probability and statistics here because I'm not a clumsy person, right, and I'm also not a depressed person right now.  I'm a person who is spooked out though."

 

"For Huffington Post to delete those posts without any notice, that is Orwellian.  That is something I've read about happening in mainland China."

 

Fortunately, we've discovered a cached version of one of the articles published by Seaman (which can be read here).  In it, Seaman questions whether his readers truly believe Hillary to be healthy noting that he can't express an opinion because he "needs to keep [his] job and platform."  Seaman goes on to point out that "we all know what happens when you speak a little too much truth about the Establishment-beloved Clintons."   

 

I realize some readers might be wondering after watching Paul Watson’s video... how is she strong, or healthy, after seeing all that?

 

Look guys, I need to keep my job and platform. A lot of people read the Huffington Post and AOL properties. We all know what happens when you speak a little too much truth about the Establishment-beloved Clintons.

 

Just ask longtime broadcaster Dr. Drew Pinsky.CNN has canceled Drew Pinsky’s HLN show, Dr. Drew On Call, just eight days after Pinsky made comments on a radio show questioning the health of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Pinsky’s show, which is six years old, will air for the last time Sept. 22,” The Daily Beast reported.

Unfortunately for Seaman, it turns out that even posing a question about Hillary's health is a little too much for the Huffington Post.

And, just for good measure, here is Paul Watson's original video posted on August 4, 2016.  Sure enough, the video is up to 3.6mm views and counting. 

 

 

Just to confirm his story, we took the opportunity to check out Seaman's "long-standing relationship" with the Huffington Post.  Certainly a quick search reveals that Seaman is a frequent contributor to the website on a variety of topics.   

David Seaman

 

And sure enough, two of his posts, "Donald Trump Challenges Hillary Clinton To Health Records Duel" and "Hillary Clinton's Health Is Superb (Aside From Seizures, Lesions, Adrenaline Pens)" seem to have been deleted from the website.  Clicking on those two posts redirects readers to the following "Editor's Note" indicating that "This post is no longer available on the Huffington Post."

David Seaman

 

"Surprisingly", however, the Huffington Post isn't quite as concerned about censoring Seaman's views on Canada legalizing medical marijuana...that post can still be enjoyed in its entirety.

And the "outright bizarre" behavior continues...

I mean in the beginning all of the labels Hillary was getting was quite comical. My favorite of course is "Hitlary". But...it's not funny anymore because instead of it being a joke we really are resembling the ol' "Fatherland" at breakneck speed.

I'd like to know how this guy has voted in the past 3 election cycles.  Probably voted for democrats all the way down the line.  You vote for Big Government, this is what you fucking get, MORON!!

Yes she has medical devices under this coat.

Nobody would buy a coat like that.

Nobody would wear that in summer.

The fabric is stiff lined with a facing, so that it does not cling to the device and reveal it's presence.

I used to work retail and we were told professional shoplifters make dresses or coats like this with bags to stuff items in.

I just saw someone I haven't seen in a few years he said he was in downtown SF  and her entourage showed up in front of hotel, he was very close and it was Hillary. He looked at her and even though she had lots of makeup on he thought she does not look well at all. They are keeping her alive for this, who knows with what regimen.

Ahh, that's nothing. There was so much opposition to Lincoln's War of Northern Aggression in the North, that's north of the Mason Dixon Line, that Lincoln shut down newspapers that oppossed his war and even deported "outspoken Democratic Party critic in Congress, Clement L. Vallandigham of Dayton, Ohio."

So you see folks, nothing new under the sun. Political murders go back to the time of the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians.

I suppose yoy could say the Civil War was really the Republicans against the Democrats...

still is.

Pure Evil's picture

The civil war was about the Imperium against State's Rights. Guess which side lost.

In fact a few Northern states were fed up with Washington D.C., the centralization of power by the other side, before the Civil War and had often talked about succession.

Amazing to me how the young “journalists” are so traumatized when the criminal elite, whose existence and methods they had denied so vigorously, come for them. They are the personification of useful idiots... but nothing new. I suppose we should be happy a few of them are being awakened.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I actually saw (or rather, DIDN'T see) that disappeared article.  I was surfing one of my regular sites this morning like I do early every morning.  It was one of those sites that posts up a lot of junk from all over other internet sites- might have been the Yahoo homepage.  Can't remember.

Anywho, I saw the title, the picture and the fact it came from HuffPo.  I thought "HuffPo posting an article questioning Hillary's health??  That's gotta be a mistake.  Or clickbait.  Whatever, I'm game."  Clicked through to get to HuffPo and got "this article does not exist".  Weird.  Tried again, same thing.  Tried to search for it on HuffPo directly and came up empty.

I thought sarcastically "I bet they disappeared this article on purpose."  Little did I know at the time THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID.  This kind of shit IS fucking scary.  Still, I know this dude is voting for Hillary in November anyway so like the lady said "What difference does it make at this point?"

Another piece-of-shit "journalist" suddenly discovers "unprecedented" behavior when it happens to him.

I have been censored by HuffPost, Netflix, TEDx, and other progressive outlets for years. The mainstream media have censored for decades at least.

When you start getting censored by ZH, then you'll know that you've REALLY hit paydirt!

 

I mean, think about that for a moment... If you speak falsely or stupidly here, you get called out in 2 seconds flat (by way of downvotes)... So, why would there ever be a need for censorship?

Yesterday Trump called on Hillary to release her medicals and he would release his.

Today Huma/Weiner

Mika Brzezinski daughter of the Lizard today said Trump is mentally ill and it "is time to bring in mental health professionals"

They are desperate, when all else fails they call you crazy.

The lead-in to my just-posted share of this article onto Facebook:

If you want a totalitarian dictatorship, vote for Crazy Hillary.

Crazy Hillary's supporters say they fear Trump will become Hitler - read this article and see for yourself that Crazy Hillary's crowd already IS Hitler.

ZeroHedge calls the increasing clamp down on anything said or written that's negative about Crazy Hillary "bizarre."

No, it's hard-core authoritarian Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Red Chinese, Franco, Castro, Haiti, North Korea, Turkey, and every other murderous dictatorship that has ever existed.

It is now at the point where these arrogant elitists - Right Wing or Left Wing - are so terrified that Trump and his supporters are going to throw them out of control that they are taking steps in broad daylight that we've previously seen only in one-party totalitarian states.

These are not just psychos, they are absolutely dangerous people who will stop at nothing - and yes, that includes murdering people with (most likely FBI) assassins who get in the way or cause trouble.

This election is no longer about candidate personalities.

This election is about turning America into a full-blown Left Wing totalitarian dictatorship.

My deepest regret this instant is that so many "respectable" Americans are so completely clueless about what is happening right in front of their face. They can't grasp it because they are as ignorant as a sack of rocks about the history and steps totalitarians take to take-over the country.

Never forget that millions loved Hitler, Stalin, and the rest of the list above. Given the idiocy of humans to Buy the Lie, it's no surprise millions of Useful Idiots love Crazy Hillary.

I never really bought that Obama would seize absolute power through Executive Order if Crazy Hillary loses - until this very second.

I now realize without reservation that there is a "vast conspiracy" across America, but it is not the Right Wing that conspires and executes its plan for complete control.

It is the Radical Left Wing Fringe, Hollywood, the MSM, academia, ungodly churches, schuls, and mosques, oligarchs, banksters, the military-industrial complex . . .summarized as the .1%, the Davos crowd, the Bilderberg Crowd, Skull and Bones, and all the other networks that run the show, and are turning us into malinformed, very dumbed down, submissives without the intellect to understand the sub-human futures these people bring closer to fruition every day.

This is the crystalizing moment when only the complete idiots can still support Crazy Hillary. They are brain-dead Denialists unworthy of taking seriously any more than you would take seriously any inmate in the mental ward.

There is no longer any choice but to meet them wherever they stand; protesting at Crazy Hillary's cult gatherings, refusing to give-in to their rantings, and if they become violent . . . then the truth is that counter-violence is the only option.

There was no way to win the American Revolution without bloodshed. You can't repel a totalitarian with anything less than overwhelming strength.

It is the tragic reality that there are moments in life when it requires the death of the totalitarian individual to preserve the freedom of the nation.

When you know someone will kill you, you have no choice but to kill that person first. It's your life, or your death. One of you will walk away alive, the other will rot where you once stood - there is no third outcome.

Either we submit to the Hell on Earth where the uncompromising totalitarians will place us, or we place the uncompromising totalitarians in Hell beneath the Earth.

You have to be crazy to vote for Crazy Hillary.

Left wing used to mean promoting policies that helped regular citizens by what they believed was equitable sharing of wealth.  I've seen very little of this behavior from neocon Democrats, who pander to the military/intelligence/banking/drug/oligarchs.  To long-time liberals these current democrats seem further to the right than the republicans of 20 years ago.  

Archibald Buttle's picture

totally agree about today's democraps. i bet a bunch of conservatives feel the current republicants are more liberal than democrats of the past, too. time for a beer.

Victor von Doom's picture

Left wing always means theft and extortion by the State on behalf of the fringe/criminal elements of society.

Never support them - the ideal is a lie.

i doubt that post was visible to others for long. and stay away from nailguns and the other usual suspects btw. you basically posted what nowadays i would not at all be surprised would be considered a death threat to a presidential candidate. and on facebook of all places! can't say you don't have balls ;-)

photonsoflight's picture

I would tend to agree with you, but what about the plans in place for just such an incident? There are (devices) in place since the cold war they would most certainly use against us. It would be hard to have a revolution while these devices are in place. Dead men don't rebel after all and "if they can't have it nobody will" mentality they have will absolutely make them use these devices. The president is a figure head and tptb are determined to keep it that way. I'm voting trump for no other reason than to give them the finger, I don't know if he will be able to really do anything. Seems to me the tptb want to run down this country in order to create a global form of federal government on all nations. Then the us federal government would be like one of the states doing what its told to do or being punished accordingly. As much as I would like them to receive their own medicine, I would not like third world , un-american tyrants ruling over myself or my people. For the time being voting Trump might be the last peaceful means of rebelling against a rising tyranny.

She will choose the time and the moderators, she owns the media.

She will be seated in a special chair so she doesn't look so small and frail next to him.

I hear she is only 5 ft tall or less.
