Fuck the Huffington Post
Their entire front page has nearly ZERO on Occupy ANYTHING. 3/4 the way down there's a bit on "Art at OWS". Fer Christ's sake, even the Salon.com site has a separate heading for OWS.

1. HuffPo is nothing more than a tabloid site.

7. HuffPo has been really bad lately.
They just repost articles, sometimes with bogus comments. It's worse than it was pre-AOL.

10. I stopped visiting when they sold out to AOL...
I haven't been back since. It's just a stupid sell-out tabloid. Give it up.

11. Their really good writers were never adequately compensated.
And then Huffington got bought out by AOL, who paid millions, and yet Arianna still refuses to pay her writers decently.

If Arianna cannot get her own agreements with her employees to be fair, how can we expect her "take" on reality to be fair?

13. I hate the site too
They refresh the page constantly and what your reading will move or disappear completely.
That really pisses me off and they do it just so their web hits falsely increase.
