"In defense of Arianna Huffington. Not that the lady needs one, having been a leader in undermining the right-wing dominance of Internet reporting. Defenders of a free press should be thrilled that it is Huffington who is now merging with AOL rather than Matt Drudge, the unrivaled leader of Internet news, whom I first met at Arianna’s home when she was cozier with the right. But a defense is salutary now because too many progressives, including Chris Hedges on Truthdig, which I edit, have made Huffington a symbol of the crisis in American journalism." (02/23/11)
