Arianna Huffington – Capitalist Communist?

This is a great story of how the Huffington Post’s business model is essentially get people to give you content, pay them nothing and make money for yourself, all the while railing against how big business is screwing over the little guy. 

There is also a brilliant analogy of how what Huffington does parallels what the Writers Guild of America is striking against.   It also points out that many WGA members post for Huffington railing against what Huffington does without a sense of irony at all.

All in all, it’s a important look at how the Left-wing blogosphere functions and they hypocrisy of those who rail against a system they exploit to make themselves rich. 

Did you really think Kos was eating PB&J every night and cutting his diarists checks?

And, just for the hell of it, here’ s our ode to Duckie himself when he won Douchebag of the Week.

    AOL’s acquisition of the Huffington Post (for $315 million) was a great move. Prior to this acquisition one could only receive the wisdom of Marx, Ingles and Trotsky; now with the advent of Arianna Huffington’s progressive guide one can also be given the vast knowledge of Mao, Pol Pot, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro and that great bulwark of progressive freedom Stalin. An added benefit is that Arianna being born in Greece has no constraints in eliminating that nasty little impediment to achieving the socialist utopia, the First Amendment. Arianna however does not limit herself only to leftist agitation. Indeed her credentials as a serious activist were nurtured when she was a former disciple of Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (the Rajneesh cult spread potentially lethal Salmonella bacteria in a small Oregon town. Rajneesh cult members did this as a way of infecting and incapacitating town residents on Election Day so that cult voters could win control of the local government). Additionally Arianna is an ordained minister of the John-Roger cult, the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness and her mother Elli was active in the Communist-led Greek resistance. Arianna a comrade in arms with the common man manages her numerous progressive activities from the confines of her small and ill equipped $7-million house.
