(Newser) – Two weeks ago, the Huffington Post announced it would append an editor's note to the end of its stories about Donald Trump that defines him as "a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully," among other things. With Trump's Tuesday night win in New Hampshire, it turned the end note into a blazing red homepage headline: "NH Goes Racist Sexist Xenophobic."

The story page elaborates: "A Racist, Sexist Demagogue Just Won The New Hampshire Primary" reads its headline. The lengthy article recounts the events of the evening, framing them as a "stunning turn of events for a party that vowed just four years ago to be more inclusive to minorities after failing to unseat President Barack Obama in the bitter 2012 election. What the GOP got instead is a xenophobic demagogue who's insulted pretty much everyone and even earned the endorsement of white supremacists." What Arianna Huffington had to say, via Twitter: "Our @ huffingtonpost splash says it all # NewHampshirePrimary."
