Former Huffington Post contributor David Seaman has been making the rounds lately after revealing that his article relating to Hillary Clinton and her health has been pulled from the Huffington Post and that his writer access has been revoked.
On August 28th, 2016 Seaman did a short five minute video letting his audience know that he had his access to Huffington Post revoked and that two of his articles have been removed. The video can be viewed below from David’s YouTube channel.
Seaman writes in the description…
“. Posting an update tonight, Sunday, August 28, 2016 at 11:13pm local time as there are legal implications here. Simply linking to a video that questions Hillary Clinton’s health should not get one’s contributorship AND articles deleted without notice! That’s censorship- which is a profoundly un-American behavior, in my view.”
Seaman finds himself being red-pilled at the reality of how censorship-heavy today’s mainstream media has become. This has been especially worrying with the rise of what some people label as the Regressive Left, or more colloquially known as Social Justice Warriors.
The article in question was entitled “Hillary Clinton’s Health Is Superb (Aside From Seizures, Lesions, Adrenaline Pens)”. It was originally published on August 28th, 2016 earlier in the day before Seaman was removed from the Huffington Post and the post itself deleted.
If you attempt to access the page now, it turns up empty with a editor’s note about the page not existing. There’s an archive of the vacant lot where the article used to be parked. Seaman believes that the reason the article may have been pulled was due to linking to a video on YouTube with several million views questioning the possible declining health of Democratic POTUS hopeful, Hillary Clinton. The video was originally posted several weeks ago by YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson.
The news about a journalist being fired – one with a pedigree that extends to CNN, political talk shows, radio shows and a freelance contributor to various media outlets – quickly spread through some political sectors, as well as free speech forum Kotaku In Action, which regularly monitors corruption and unethical behavior from media and journalists alike.
David Seaman decided not to sit still while the Huffington Post attempted to cover up the scrubbing of his articles and contributions, opting to head to the internet media machine to spread the word. Rebel Media’s Lauren Southern interviewed Seaman who explained what happened in detail while postulating over Huffington Post’s reasoning for the censorship.
For those who don’t want to watch the near 20 minute video, the summation of the events are succinctly outlined by Seaman, where he states…
“No one at Huffington Post has explained this censorship to me, why I’m not allowed to discuss Hillary Clinton’s health, why I’m not allowed to link out to a video that discusses Hillary Clinton’s health – that certainly was not in the agreement I signed with them.”
According to the former contributor for the Huffington Post, he attempted to reach out to Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief at the Huffington Post, but he states that he has received no response. I also recently reached out to the Huffington Post regarding the matter, and if they decide to respond I’ll update the article.
This follows closely on the heels of another journalist who was fired by NewsMaxTV. A certain Dennis Michael Lynch was fired live and on-air after going off-script and pointing out that the typically Conservative-leaning news organization wanted him to run pre-packaged hit-pieces on Fox News. After outing the organization’s intentions, they had the plug pulled live on his show and terminated him from his contract the next day.
While mainstream media continues to make #GamerGate the whipping boy of all things evil in society, the core message of the consumer revolt about media being corrupt is ringing truer by the day.
