HUMAN EVENTS Top 15 Articles of 2011

The No. 1 article on in 2011 was “David Axelrod’s Pattern of Sexual Misbehavior” by HE Columnist Ann Coulter, who made a connection in her Nov. 9 column between some of former Presidential candidate Herman Cain’s female accusers and Democratic political consultant David Axelrod. Coulter wrote: “The reason all this is relevant is that both Axelrod and [former Chicago mayor Richard M.] Daley have a history of smearing political opponents by digging up claims of sexual misconduct against them.”

The next-biggest Human Events story for the year came from Jason Mattera, Human Events’ Editor-at-Large. Mattera button-holed Vice President Joe Biden to ask him about the vice president’s warning that crime, including rapes, would rise if President Obama’s Jobs Act was not passed. The story and video were published Oct. 19, 2011, entitled, “All Huffy, Joe Biden Stands By Rape Reference to GOP.”
