Huffington Post Offered Defense of Liz Warren’s Gender Pay Gap

The Huffington Post, a liberal media outlet, took issue with the Washington Free Beacon’s report [1] that liberal U.S. Senator Elizabeth “Liz” Warren paid her female staffers less than male staffers. Why? The Free Beacon is accused of allegedly using incomplete data.

The thing is, the Free Beacon was transparent on which data they were using and explained why the top female earners were excluded. Specifically, the Free Beacon said that they excluded staffers who did not work a full fiscal year, some of whom were the highest-paid male or female employees.

Sorry, Huffington Post, but the Free Beacon still has a point on female staff pay in Warren’s office.
