Comments on: Arianna’s new empire http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/02/07/ariannas-new-empire/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: GregHao http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/02/07/ariannas-new-empire/comment-page-1/#comment-23844 Tue, 08 Feb 2011 20:44:25 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=7212#comment-23844 Just to add to some of the thoughts here, Felix, can you provide us with some evidence for this quote: “Arianna’s a den mother when it comes to her own employees: she won’t stand for any harm befalling them.” If you mean all the big name people she’s hired, then you may very well be right but what about the hundreds or thousands of bloggers whose content’s not being paid for by HuffPo? Seems like the den mother’s never really cared two wits about them anyway.

It brings to mind this, from the Devil’s Dictionary. Maybe “Politics” could be replaced with “Blogging.”

“Politics: n. A strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”

I wouldn’t mind if it disappeared, Arianna et al.
