Hey, for those who are interested the Huffington Post went live today. It might be worth checking out.

I don't trust Ariana Huffington's opinion. I've watched her switch positions just one too many times over the years. I've come to the conclusion that her primary motivation is to be in the spotlight and that she will say just about anything to that end. That is my personal opinion, YMMV.

You should read the LA Weekly column on the Huffington Post.

Deadline Hollywood: Celebs to the Slaughter - Why Arianna’s Blog Blows

It's a hoot.

Is it OK for me to have absolutely no idea who Arianna Huffington is?

I stumbled across the blog last week, took a look around, and decided it wasn't worth my time.

Interesting LA Weekly article, though. I guess this is an LA thing, huh?

It's a Hollyweird / Political Fapping thing.

It just might be fun watching her implode, so you're not missing much by not knowing who she is.

I disagree, I think its a pretty good source of news and the blogging is interesting. I think the journalists predicting her demise are the same people who are losing out to bloggers daily.

I dunno, I read it for the first week, and it was too much tongue wagging, they said, bad this, evil that, conspiracy over in that corner, gossipy ick. Lotta words, but light on calories.
That said, I do think much of "main-stream" media is gonna start really feeling a nudge in the lower backside due to blogging, and other "new-media" forms.
I just don't think Arianna's gonna be the thorn she was hoping for. I tend to think of her as a new version of "The Weekly World News".

Like the Drudge Report, a significant portion of her site is just links from established news sources with the ability to comment on them. Its the other half thats the blog and regardless your opinions on Arianna Huffington, she quite a few people in the know that I wouldn't mind hearing from.

That a blog gets any media attention at all destroys the very meaning of the grassroots blog. I've always been of the belief that blogs are meant for people to write about whatever the hell they want, tossing out aspersions wherever he/she wants for whatever whims occur at the moment.





Let's not knock M. Huffington for having opinions. Let's mock those who critique her tom-bloggery. For they, truly, don't get it.

I just found Huffington's Toast blog. And after a very quick perusal, I just gotta say, I'm gonna keep my eye on this one. Mainly because of titles like: Condi, the Jello Shot Temptress.

Sue me, I just like to giggle lots.
