You have to tip your hat at the gob-smacking nerve of uber millionaire Arianna Huffington expecting the great unwashed public to crowdfund a “Citizen Journalist,” to the tune of $40,000 in order for HuffPo to cover the situation in Ferguson. This from a company that’s part of AOL with a market cap of 3 fucking billion dollars!!! These are the fuckers that I did a few pieces for in the past, and then when I asked what they were paying, they told me… “Well, being published on Huffington Post is a privilege many writers aspire to, we don’t need to pay.” To which I replied, “Then I don’t need to write. So fuck off!” For some reason, they never asked me again!
And I’ll bet she has titanium knickers!
