Amidst Complaints HuffPost Supports Sanity Rally

The Wrap‘s Josh Dickey and Sharon Waxman have the alleged lowdown on the reaction inside HuffPost – which they say isn’t favorable.

He told FishbowlDC through a spokesperson: “Arianna decided the rally was a worthy cause, and an exciting one the company would gladly stand behind, and she was right. HuffPost, along with the thousands who have signed up for the bus ride to DC, look forward to October 30th. And we see it as a good sponsorship opportunity.”
