    Huffington Post is unfair to its workers. I call on all those who support the right of a person to make a living wage to boycott HuffPo until they start paying their reporters.

    For the rest of you, I am sure you fully support me in boycotting HuffPo simply because they are less acquainted with the truth than TruthMatters.

    To make it even more interesting, at least one group of writers is tired of being used to line the pockets of corporate greed with their free labors.

    If seems, however, that Huffington Post, that bastion of freedom and Democracy, does not support the right of its non employees to strike. They took down the notice of the strike that they posted.

    Of the irony.

    Ariana started HuffPo with 1 million dollars and sold it for 13 million. Now that's what you call a real tricky bitch.

    If they get any money for writing their blogs and articles, it belongs to us.
