Dana Loesch Responds to Ex-HuffPost Blogger’s Sex Wish

There’s no love lost between the left and right online. Things are tense on a good day and then they’re just bloody at any given turn. Such was the state of affairs this week as ex-HuffPost blogger and lawyer Pascal Robert told outspoken conservative radio host Dana Loesch that he’d like to see her blanked up the blank.

What won’t surprise you: the conservative online community collectively flipped out, claiming Robert was calling for Loesch to be raped. What might: Until this morning, HuffPost had nothing to say. When we requested comment, HuffPost Spokeswoman Jessica Hanks told FishbowlDC: “Pascal Robert has contributed blogs to The Huffington Post. He has never been on staff and is not a paid contributor. We stopped publishing his posts in July after inappropriate comments surfaced.” Still, his Twitter bio says he’s a HuffPost Contributor, something they conceivably cannot control.

D.C. Journos Win Awards for Alleged Sexism

Not all awards are meant for resumés.

Some Washington journalists are among those getting recognized for being sexist in their political coverage. Name It. Change It., a non-partisan project of She Should RunWomen’s Media Center, and Political Parity that aims to combat what they call “widespread” sexism in the media, began publicly informing winners this morning on Twitter.

Among the award winners: HuffPost Social Media Editor Ethan Klapper for an allegedly sexist slideshow; HuffPost Style fashion writers Lauren Rothman and Christina Wilkie for what the organization deems as sexist fashion reporting; and FNC “The Five’s” Greg Gutfeld and Kimberly Guilfoyle for referring to Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “frizzilla.” Guilfoyle remarked, “I gave up perms a long time ago.”

We reached out to HuffPost for reaction. Klapper had no comment and referred me to HuffPost Publicist Rhoades Alderson. The others did not immediately respond to our request. UPDATE: See a comment from Alderson after the jump…
