The Huffington Post’s manifest destiny over the Internet continued today. Arianna Huffington‘s site just launched a new “Health” section called, shockingly, “HuffPost Health.”
“I’m delighted that our health coverage is getting its own section,” Huffington said in a press release. “Our approach to matters of sickness and health has changed radically over the past few decades. We no longer approach our health as a passive experience, one where we sit back, allow ourselves to be poked, prodded, examined, receive the verdict, and compliantly go along with whatever the High Priests of Medicine say.”
Despite her anti-establishment rhetoric, Huffington selected a clinical professor of medicine to run the section, HuffPo Medical Editor Dr. Dean Ornish.
