Why the cry for a Huffington Post strike now?

Dan Abrams is puzzled. “Did Huffington Post suddenly change its model as a result of its sale to Aol?” he asks. “Are they now refusing to pay bloggers and editors they had been paying for years? Has the merger led them to change the pay scale for their writers?” || Earlier: Huffington Post responds to Newspaper Guild’s call for a boycott.

    Excellent! Like a whorehouse (or, euphemistically, an “escort service”) madam, Arianna Huffington pimped the likes of the willing Cherie Turner and others of the “write for free” movement to the tune of $315 million. Arianna is living the American dream.

    Disrespectful and unfair to whom?

    Well, duh. The writers and bloggers made it the go-to news organization it became — and only Arianna benefits financially? That’s disrespectful and unfair.

    Wha? “Don’t hate the player, hate the game”? So don’t hate the bankers, hate the banking system. Yeah, the system made them screw us.
