The Free Agent List: 2011′s 50 Media Power Bachelors
A literature-hungry tech nerd, that rare breed: not an easy find, no less the ones also fluent in Portuguese (Scheinkman is Brazilian and French). A Brown grad based in Carroll Gardens, Mr. Scheinkman left The New York Times' interactive news desk earlier this year to lead the development of interactive features at HuffPo. His sweethearts can expect lovely digital Valentines, as shiny and technologically impressive as they are poetic.

False comparisons between New York Times and Huffington Post obscure true difference | Poynter.
Even if the two sites adopt some of one another’s strengths – and even if The Huffington Post does at some point employ as many journalists and surpass the Times in page views – I don’t expect to see either discard the values that have garnered their audiences.

AOL’s Brewing Conflict: Brand Versus Journalism | BNET
his illuminates the ongoing conflict between business-as-journalism and journalism-as-business. If Armstrong can’t find a way to embrace and accommodate both views in an organic and natural way, he will fail in what he wants to accomplish.

Robert's Reader | Uncategorized | In Which I Take Issue With Felix Salmon
So I’d argue that, not only is the NYT page better-looking and easier to read, it also shows a respect for the reader which seems to be rooted in the hope of a long-term relationship. The HuffPo design, like the HuffPo, is all bait and switch.

Huffington Post: A journalistic race to the bottom - latimes.com
The fact is that AOL and the Huffington Post simply recapitulate in the new media many of the worst abuses of the old economy's industrial capitalism — the sweatshop, the speedup and piecework; huge profits for the owners; desperation, drudgery and exploitation for the workers. No child labor, yet, but if there were more page views in it…

Why the NYT will lose to HuffPo | Analysis & Opinion |
the difference between the two pages is much starker than it needs to be: the NYT page is like walking into a library, while the HuffPo page is like walking through Times Square

PolitiFact | Does PolitiFact seek 'the comfort of the middle ground'?
Half Trues are often unsatisfying, the PolitiFact equivalent of a tie game.

But it’s silly to suggest we were seeking a safe “middle ground.”

Ryan Catbird's Tumblr (That’s one page of the Huffington Post. What’s...)
hat’s one page of the Huffington Post. What’s the takeaway here? That the way to “win” isn’t about thoughtfully designed, clear, simple, intuitive interfaces and experiences. It’s about throwing every single piece of crap you can find onto the screen all at once and then crosslinking the hell out of it until your servers bleed.

Five Years Later, The Huffington Post (And Online Media) Are Coming Of Age
Henry Blodget says the Huffington Post could also be within spitting distance of the NYT in terms of online revenue by 2012. "And a few years after that? It seems reasonable to think that Huffington Post could eventually just be bigger than the New York Times, online and offline."

Arianna Huffington's Journalism Charity Helps Nobody but Herself - Arianna Huffington - Gawker
The fund's application for tax-exempt status is still pending at the IRS, and one tax expert we spoke to said it might run into trouble if it can't prove that it offers a benefit to anyone aside from the commercial operation with which it shares a name.

Stop Picking on Pinch - The Daily Beast
"Last March, I published a lengthy piece in the New Yorker about the death of the newspaper in which I reported that among its 1,300 or so newsroom employees, the Times then employed 11 individuals merely to moderate its message boards. That was, and still is, I believe, more than the number of reporters employed by The Huffington Post, which attracts its millions of monthly readers by cannibalizing the reporting of the Times, and others, and leaving its commenters to attack one another unmoderated (save for libel, deliberate falsehood, etc.)."

Larry David: Waiting for Nov. 4th
Call me crazy, but I'd rather live in a democratic racist country than a non-democratic non-racist one. (It's not exactly a Hobson's choice, but it's close, and I think Hobson would compliment me on how close I've actually come to giving him no choice. He'd love that!)

Huffington Post spreads itself thin - Los Angeles Times
Just don't expect any time soon to find America's No. 1 blog digging deep for the toughest stories. No, it's still newspapers and a few other outlets that are providing the heavy excavation and producing reports about, for example, secret terrorist prisons operated by the U.S. government, warrantless wiretapping of American citizens and the substandard care of troops in one of our most prestigious military hospitals.
