19. Yes his mouth is open, but ..it is a picture of him explaining..not a negative pic.

Look at the angle of that picture of Jeb Bush... It is facing up, clearly facing up. As if he is to be looked up to..That one is still a positive picture of who they want to be president

Now why discuss the Huff Post?

1. Because hundreds of thousands go there.
2. It professes to be somewhat progressive, and really is owned by Right Wing jerks
3. Many people really do not know some ways that looking at a picture, can sway opinions
4. The picture of Bernie that was up there was quite negative and somewhat ugly. Open mouth like he was going off on something.(by the way, that photo is gone..not on front page.
5. I believe that tens of thousands go there for many reasons and know very little about who these people are in reality
6. Newcomers to politics will indeed be conned, I feel it is ok to expose this, at least here
7. While the Huff Post has many good writers who discuss some progressive ideas, it is my belief that tens of thousands go there for

a quick review of the news, and get the impression that the Huff Post wants to give. I recall many years ago, Playboy magazine had some great articles which very few people read. Now many really did read some article and those were very good..But that is not the reason why people bought Playboy magazine...

8...While it is still the Huffington Post, and A. Huffington may have been progressive, she sold out to a right wing company ( AOL
The Huffington Post, Parent organization
)for three hundred million and some do not know that because she still has a strong presence there.
