HuffPost Reacts to Politico Cartoon

After Politico‘s cartoon shot against HuffPost@AOL this morning, Senior V.P. of Public Relations Mario Ruiz responds to FishbowlDC about HuffPost not paying its bloggers.

“The notion that a few people at The Huffington Post “cashed in” on the backs of overworked, underpaid workers is simply not true.  Indeed, everyone at the Huffington Post is benefiting financially from the deal – some through the vesting of options, and others through a special bonus pool that Arianna and the board decided to create to reward employees without options. To be clear, that applies to over 200 people.”

As for bloggerrs being unpaid, HuffPost blogger and PR maven Hilary Rosen weighs in here.

HuffPost@AOL has no plans for official retaliation against Politico for the cartoon at this time.
