Arianna Huffington interview

There is an interesting interview with Arianna Huffington on The Guardian website about the $315 deal with AOL. She talks about the anger of bloggers who want to get paid for their contributions in light of this deal, but she has refused to do so.

This quote stood out for me from the interview where Tim Rutten from  the LA Times called  the Huffington Post’s business model to “a galley rowed by slaves and commanded by pirates” and said that the AOL deal “will push more journalists more deeply into the tragically expanding low-wage sector of our increasingly brutal economy.”

Ouch!
