Donald Trump's views pose a "tremendous danger" to America while the presidential candidate has been given a "free ride" by the media, The Huffington Post's co-founder and president told CNBC.
Speaking from the Digital-Life-Design conference in Munich on Tuesday, Arianna Huffington explained why her news organization singled out Trump's Republican presidential campaign, first by only ranking news about the candidate beside articles on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.
"We have decided we won't report on Trump's campaign as part of The Huffington Post's political coverage," the Huffington Post's editorial director and Washington bureau chief wrote in July. "Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow. We won't take the bait," the statement read.
