Because AOL is Relevant

7 Feb

AOL has agreed to acquire The Huffington Post and make Arianna Huffington the editor-in-chief over all content.

Cue wingnut tantrum-throwing and complaints about media bias in 5…4…3…fuck! I guess evil never sleeps.

AOL is going to lose all of 7 customers over this.

Update:  Moar! Moar!

    I think they think we are dancing in the streets. I peeked at the link, and in Fox Nation’s sidebar is a photo of President Obama in a suit jacket and shirt with the top button undone, and it’s captioned “No tie?” Damn. It must suck to be them. It’s like they have this huge burr under their saddle, and will fight to the death to keep it there.

    Hi, T&U! Nice place.

    Hi! Thank you.

    Like we give a damn about some mediocre left-centrist blog joining up with a basically defunct media company.

    AOL unfortumately still has tons of customers. (I still have e-mail there because I’m too goddam lazy to change after all those years.) HOWEVER, you must NEVER, EVER, EVER read comments there. The place is populated with the vilest of wingnut spawn (they all seem to be about 13). This will be the stake in the heart of HuffPoo.

    Oh — Congrats on your bloggy thingy!

    A media analyst on Radio NZ reckons that Huffington will increase the number of ads and then, in 2 years, say “For $20 a month you can lose the ads”.
    Inevitable hand of the market and all

    AOL is proof that birds used to be dinosaurs.

    If birds evolved then HOW COME THERE ARE no, wait.

    If there are no dinosaurs, then who is the Flintstones’ pet? Answer me that, smart guy.
