According to Editor & Publisher, the Tribune Media Services Huffington Post Great Syndication Experiment was to begin last week, with at least ten newspapers being offered free content from the site for a month in return for feedback. So, have any newspapers run anything yet? Not that I can tell. Please report any sightings of the elusive, perhaps mythical Huffington Post Print Edition here. Extra points if you provide grainy photographic evidence like those Loch Ness Monster shots.
Meanwhile, back at the Post, Arianna chimes in, in re: Jacko, to decry the media’s obsession with frivolity and celebrity culture, suggesting that we all “turn our backs” on such matters. Pretty high falutin’ talk from someone who promoted her blog by yapping about Warren and Gwynneth. Note that in the same post in which she complains that nobody talks about serious news, Huffington also reports that she enjoyed the movie ‘Bewitched’ and attended the premiere party.
