Today’s Suckfest: Arianna Huffington and Lateness
I don’t know what slow boat I was on; what drugs I may have been snuck, or what rock I was napping under….but when the hell did Arianna Huffington sell the Huffington Post to AOL. AOL? As in AOL Time Warner? As in the world’s leading media conglomerate and information redactor that she has been railing against for like 8 years. Did she spend some time in a pod? What other reason can there be? Oh, 315 Million reasons it seems. 315 Million Dollars should make her feel more secure than her piddly 35 Million in the Bank.
Update: Will just came home and informed me that everyone already knows this (and that I knew too) CONSPIRACY of LIES! Regardless is all raises the question….why is no one filled with the Rages?
Arianna is a Pimp. She’s out on the street cashing in by selling something that doesn’t even BELONG to her. The HuffPost’s best asset (besides its now tainted name) is its content–and the content is provided for free by Bloggers. Bloggers who donate their time and energy because they want to create a space where you can hear news of interest to progressives/lefties/anarchists/and yes hippies. And now they’re working for free for AOL Timewarner? PIMP!
So, Arianna Huffington will become the first so-called Lefty to be placed on the Die In Fire list. And to all of you who didn’t call, text, post, tweet, share, email, or yell this travesty to me…You may be next.
