Wanna see some shady journalism?...

Huffington Post Writer Stabs Ex-Lover 220 Times, Commits Suicide

Boynton, Beach, FL:

Quote:
A woman who lived with her ex-partner on the city's south side stabbed her former lover more than 200 times with a Phillips-head screwdriver and then tried to conceal the killing, police said.

After committing the crime, Carol Anne Burger, 57, a writer who friends described as engaged and eager to move on with life, reported her old flame missing and then, a day later, shot herself to death in her backyard, police said.

[snip]

Burger, upset at the disintegration of her relationship and disgusted with the U.S. during the past several years, sometimes talked of moving to Panama or Mexico to start again.

That she had recently lost her job didn't help the bouts of depression she sometimes experienced, said her close friend and confidante, Helen Gale.

But when the Web site The Huffington Post tapped Burger to cover the election from Florida this month, the job seemed to give her renewed focus. Burger burned to write a story for the site's front page and poured herself into the work, Gale said.
Obviously, a horrible and sad situation...

But many can see, right here in this article, that her political beliefs were part of the reason for her increased depression and ultimate lashing out...(Bush Derangement Syndrome)...

So what did the Palm Beach Post do?...

That's right...They REMOVED the part about her being "disgusted with the US"...Can't have anyone knowing she's unhinged based on politics, can we?...

Here's the google search I did with that phrase (and the word "palm") and sure enough, the second link is the story in question...



But if you go directly to the link itself (as shown - Police: Ex-lover stabbed Boynton Beach executive 200 times with screwdriver), you'll find that line doesn't exist in the story anymore...

Even in tragedy, the media whitewashes to make sure the moonbats don't look like moonbats...No mention of a "correction" or statement saying "this article has been changed" either (shhhh!)...
