Amidst Complaints HuffPost Supports Sanity Rally

HuffPost doesn’t pay many of its bloggers, but come the end of October, Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington will foot the bill for thousands of New Yorkers to board shuttle buses to attend Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart‘s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington. The Wrap‘s Josh Dickey and Sharon Waxman have the alleged lowdown on the reaction inside HuffPost – which they say isn’t favorable.

But HuffPost CEO Eric Hippeau offers another perspective. 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.”
