Huffpo Claims Its Bloggers Aren’t Writers. Is That True? - Jeff Bercovici - Mixed Media - Forbes
If your definition of “professional writer” is someone who earns enough money from writing to live on, then it’s probably true that most Huffpo bloggers aren’t professional writers. But it’s clear that many of of them who don’t meet that definition wish they did, just as a lot of writers these days wish it were easier to earn a buck. For Huffpo to point to their failure to make a living  as proof that it’s not taking advantage of them while contributing to the difficulty of making that living…well, I’d call that a tad disingenuous.
