The Huffington Post

The Huffington Post has removed Josh Trevino’s articles after he admitted in an official US filing that he received RM1.2mil for writing articles and leading a campaign against Anwar Ibrahim. The Huffington Post was one of many mainstream US publications that carried articles by Trevino and other conservative writers whom he paid tens of thousands of dollars for articles.

A link to a Trevino article now leads to an Editor’s Note:

    First the Guardian drops him and now the Huntington Post what a looser. It was reported that a number of people writing for a whole host of websites across the political spectrum were doing so on behalf of the Malaysian government. And for their work they were paid handsomely. In other words, they were secretly pawning off talking points from the Malaysian government as their own in exchange for money. In 2011, then-Politico political reporter Ben Smith accused conservative writer Josh Trevino of working on behalf of special interest groups in Malaysia. Trevino fired back, “I was never on any ‘Malaysian entity’s payroll,’ and I resent your assumption that I was.” Now the truth is in the open thatv indeed he was paid by the malaysian government. Josh Trevino was the speech writer for president Bush and probably that is why the former president used to fumble when giving a speech.
