Anything of any worth is ignored or censored
Feb 7, 2011
AOL, a dying offloaded subsidiary of Time Warner, a company that still relies on dial up internet for a vast portion of its revenue, has decided that the only way it can stay relevant is to buy an “alternative” media outlet, namely the Huffington Post.
However, the Huffington Post is not an alternative media outlet, it was bank rolled by George Soros, a multi multi multi billionaire.
The majority of the material on the Huffington Post is made up of celebrity trash and mind numbing lifestyle articles.
Occasionally someone writes something of substance for the Huffington Post, take Jesse Ventura’s article on 9/11 last year, for example. The piece quickly slipped off the front page–and then completely disappeared.
“I can’t believe the Huffington Post today will practice censorship,” Ventura said in astonishment at the time. “I’ve got news for them. … I won’t ever write for ‘em again.”
In a subsequent interview with Politico, Arianna Huffington admitted:
“There are certain obvious things we have, certain specific things,” says Huffington. “Conspiracy theories — we don’t allow conspiracy theories. If you thought Sept. 11 was caused by the Bush administration, your comment is not going to appear unless it is a mistake.”
The Huffington Post only covers material that falls into line with it’s own business model – it has never been a real alternative media website and it never will be.
It is now firmly embedded within the White House press corps, and is the darling of the Obama Administration, which has artificially boosted Huffington as a way of appearing to snub the establishment media.
Therefore what AOL has really acquired is a gatekeeping blog composed of government approved political opinion and churned out prole feed that any free minded individual recognizes and rejects with impunity.
Which should fit in just fine with AOL’s current output.
