HuffPo not news

November 22, 2008

As if there was any doubt!  The Times Newspapers Ltd. reported today that “She is a close friend of Barack Obama”  She even jokes that  “I only text three people – my two teenage children and Barack Obama.”

That explains a lot.  During the bulk of the election – and especially in the final couple of months – it seemed that every other “news” article on the social media sites were from Huffington Post or Daily Kos, or one citing the other.

The Times article says HuffPo just finishing getting $15M to expand into local “news” and “investigative journalism.”

Given the extreme liberal slant of the site so far, it’s unlikely the expanded site will do any real journalism.  Just more in-your-face propoganda in a daily blog disguised as news.
