The Huffington Post will no longer add an editor’s note to articles about Donald Trump that accurately described him as racist and a liar.
According to a memo obtained by Politico, HuffPost Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim said the removal could be temporary.
“The thinking is that (assuming he wins) that he’s now president and we’re going to start with a clean slate,” wrote Grim. “If he governs in a racist, misogynistic way, we reserve the right to add it back on.”
Here’s the HuffPost note, which was previously attached to all articles about Trump:
Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
