A story published on the Huffington Post Wednesday evening regarding Trump’s interview on Fox News' "The O’Reilly Factor" contained the following editor’s note:
Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S."
A spokesperson for the Huffington Post told Politico that the editor’s note would be added reports about Trump.
“Yes, we're planning to add this note to all future stories about Trump," a Huffington Post spokesperson told Politico. "No other candidate has called for banning 1.6 billion people from the country! If any other candidate makes such a proposal, we'll append a note under pieces about them.”
