One Response to “AOL agrees to buy Huffington Post”
The main thing that I want to know is, when they say that Arianna will become the editor of AOL media, meaning that she will retain editorial control of HP, is that a lifelong appointmen
t; will she get to choose her successor? As long as she remains in control of the Post, to me it retains its integrity. If the AOL honchos ever take control of the content on HP, then it will just be another part of the MSM.
As far as the “red tide,” I don’t necessarily see it as a bad thing to bring together people of widely differing opinions on one site. The problems could come if there are discussions that are specifically relevant to one group of people, and trolls start coming in and disrupting it. I hope that there will be (or already is) some method of preventing that, so that, basically, if people in the same general camp are attempting to debate the subtleties of an issue, they won’t be interrupted by people trashing their entire political philosophy.
