In May 2005, political pundit Ariana Huffington started the Huffington Post, a website presenting the day’s important political news articles collected from various newspapers and media sources, accented with some original liberal and progressive editorials. For a time it was a good place for an overview of the truly important news.
But a few months ago, a good number of the HuffingtonPost.com headlines started to be about Paris Hilton and other drek. Regular visitors of the Huffington Post asked again and again what was the relevance of such non-news, and Ariana never noticed. Today’s headline was “All Three Hanson Brothers Now Married…”, and with that, I’m never visiting the site again.
