Well why not? She clearly needs strike breakers
.Arianna Huffington scoffed at a group of unpaid Huffington Post contributors that announced on Wednesday they would stop contributing content to the site, weeks after its $315 million sale to AOL was announced.
Huffington, speaking alongside AOL chief Tim Armstrong at PaidContent’s 2011 Conference in New York on Thursday, dismissed the notion that all bloggers should be paid, given the wide platform HuffPo gives them.
She argued that blogging on the Huffington Post is equivalent to going on Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart or the “Today” show to promote their ideas.
And, she said, there are plenty of people willing to take their place if they do.
“The idea of going on strike when no one really notices,” Huffington said. “Go ahead, go on strike.”
The controversy arose after writers for the websites ArtScene and Visual Art Source , which had been contributing content to the Huffington Post for free since 2010, refuse to contribute additional material to the site unless they got paid. They are asking for a pay schedule and requesting that promotional material no longer be published alongside editorial content.
"I am also calling upon all others now contributing free content, particularly original content to the Huffington Post to also join us in this strike," ArtScene and Visual Art Source publisher Bill Lasarow said in a statement
Arianna Huffington: 'Go Ahead, Go On Strike -- No One Will Notice' | The Wrap Media
So go ahead... be a scab, cross the picket line and read what's there. More money for the corporate fat cat... errrr... Arianna
At least she's not pushing for laws that make it illegal for bloggers to go on strike or to collectively bargain.
She's saying: Go ahead and strike and collectively bargain, and the answer is: no.
Liberals fail to recognize that modern conservatives are direct evidence of the failure of the public education system.
As Arianna said they are free to strike as much as they want, she's just not going to pay them as money in her bank account is so much more meaningful to her.
Huffpost slants in favor of what makes sense for most people in the country and the world. Huffpost will criticize anyone on the left or the right if they do stupid things. They have criticized President Obama on many occasions.link Populism, is a political philosophy that compares "the people" against "the elite", and urges social and political system changes.
If it happens that they criticize the right more than the left then it would appear that the right have done more to work against the best interests of the people. For example Huffpost cannot control that most Republicans and Conservatives fought against implementation of a much needed healthcare reform for partisan reasons. I say political because..lol.. it was the same friggen plan put fourth by the Republican nominee for President in 2008.
By such reasoning FOX the cable news outlet with the best ratings is always correct in their "Fair and balanced" coverage and it only seems they are slanted against liberals and leftists because liberals and leftists have done so much agaisnt the character of the nation in a harmful fashion.Huffpost slants in favor of what makes sense for most people in the country and the world. ....If it happens that they criticize the right more than the left then it would appear that the right have done more to work against the best interests of the people.
A is A
If populism is liberal and I guess that validates liberalism. That would make corporatism equal to conservatism and facism.
“Well, congratulations, President Barack Obama, Conspiracy theorists who generally can survive in anaerobic environments have just had an algae bloom dropped on their fucking heads, thus removing the last arrow in your pro-governance quiver: skepticism about your opponents.” - Jon Stewart
Not sure what you mean by validate though. Are you trying to say that might makes right? Or maybe the majority is always right? How does that apply to the last election then? Heck, I dont even agree that liberalism is populist in America. Im was just accepting your premise for the debate. Most research seems to indicate that most of the country is conservative in ideology.
