The Huffington Post’s own Executive Editor Liz Heron, a self described Brooklynite Mom, tweeted a photo of an Editors Meeting at the Huffington Post main headquarters.

Huffington Post has time and time again come out against Bernie Sanders over a lot of things, and is backing Hillary Clinton for her sudden promotion of equality and affirmative action. But maybe the Huffington Post needs to check it’s own privilege, and it’s own affirmative action hiring practices. The board most certainly does not represent the diversity of NYC where it meets.
