Journalist Banned From Huffington Post for Questioning Hillary's Health

In a highly unusual action against a well-known writer at Huffington Post, independent journalist David Seaman was summarily banned from ever posting at the website today and his article questioning Hillary Clinton's health deleted.

Seaman also writes for the Business Insider.

Seaman said in a video addressed to his readers:

“Both of my articles have been pulled without notice of any kind, just completely deleted from the Internet, and both of those articles mentioned Hillary’s health,”

The main article in question, "Hillary Clinton’s Health Is Superb (Aside From Seizures, Lesions, Adrenaline Pens,)" features a viral video on Youtube in which Clinton engages in a sudden head-bobbing motion with her eyes closed after a crush of reporters unloose a barrage of questions. Some observers say the camera may have caught a mild seizure.

The censored article can be read in full HERE.

The scene is widely posted across the Internet, at sources completely independent of the one used by Seaman in his article. Although the mainstream press is quick to dismiss such speculation as "conspiracy theory," it is on-record that Clinton had a concussion described as "serious" in an ABC News report. The report also confirmed that Clinton had a blot clot in her head, and must take blood thinners for the rest of her life.

The online medical reference MSKT.org says of people who have had traumatic brain injury, such as a serious concussion:

"Seizures happen in 1 of every 10 people who have a TBI that required hospitalization. The seizure usually happens where there is a scar in the brain as a consequence of the injury."

The reference goes on to say that:

During a seizure there is a sudden abnormal electrical disturbance in the brain that results in one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Strange movement of your head, body, arms, legs, or eyes, such as stiffening or shaking.
  • Unresponsiveness and staring.
  • Chewing, lip smacking, or fumbling movements.

The dangers from concussions rise with age.

The squashing of Seaman's article, and his tenure at Huffington Post, follows the sudden cancellation of the popular program Dr. Drew, after the 58-year-old internist speculated negatively on Clinton's health, saying in a radio interview that he was “gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.”

Dr. Drew Pinsky's show was cancelled eight days after he made the remarks:

David Seaman says in his video:

"I’ve filed hundreds of stories over the years as a journalist and I’ve never had anything like this happen….I’ve never experienced this...This is spooky, to me this is extremely spooky – I don’t like it...they’re deleting and censoring commentary on her health – why is that? Do they not want more people to watch that video on YouTube, is that what’s going on here?”

Seaman is now seeking legal counsel.
