Jonathan Tasini: ‘People Fear Being Blacklisted’

Today paidContent published a long interview with blogger Jonathan Tasini about the class action lawsuit he filed against The Huffington Post on behalf of unpaid bloggers.

Here’s an excerpt: “I think there’s a lot of support out there. I keep getting emails from a whole variety of writers who want to join on as plaintiffs, who are giving us all sorts of inside information. There still is a lot of fear out there. Some of the people expressing opposition to what we’re doing are just bootlickers. I think people fear being blacklisted.”

At the same time, Gawker investigated the author in a long post entitled “Guy Suing HuffPo for Not Paying Bloggers Doesn’t Pay Bloggers.” Yesterday Arianna Huffington criticized the suit and Tasini’s “pile of bile.”
