During the Q&A portion of the “Media: Where Do We Go From Here?” a question was directed at Arianna Huffington. A man from the audience asked,”Isn’t Huffington Post guilty of sensationalizing stuff in headlines to get people to click through?”

Arianna answered,”I would love to have an example of that, because we are very careful.”

When the questioner admitted he didn’t have a specific headline. Arianna asked him to email her if he ever saw that again.

“I will,” he said. “It will be from Todd.”

Heh. We have a specific example. Good for you, Todd – way to be a Huffpo touted watchdog!
