Will they start sending me CDs with poorly sourced news and unsubstantiated medical claims?

If they don't continue printing whatever crackpot bullshiitake Deepak Chopra comes up with, MUMBLES OUT.

Yeah, I think I'll be OK with someone else owning Ariana Huffenpuff XXV's community newsletter.

I'm super surprised AOL still has enough cash on hand to do this.

The AOL CEO seems really out of touch. He was using the same kind of language I did when I went on job interviews in 2002.

Could be interesting, she is going to be in charge of the news content, hopefully it means less right wing garbage like most corporate media. I will give it a chance.

I don't know how I feel about this. In all honesty, I don't understand what the fizzle Huffington post is other than they post a lot of (interesting, but very opinionated) stories you don't see in mainstream media. Like the article about Susan G. Komen suing other charities. I think that is really important and needs to get out there. But it's not.

And it's really strange that they have merged with Huff Po seeing as Huff Po still aren't making any money as it is.
Guess they will ramp up the banner ads.
