The Great Huffington Post Wimp-Out

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on March 25, 2011

Whether or not Andrew Breitbart is one’s cup of tea, Dave Weigel is right; booting Breitbart from the front page of the Huffington Post for writings Breitbart has posted elsewhere is entirely lame. I can understand refusing front page status to complete extremists, but Breitbart doesn’t even come close to qualifying for that kind of zero tolerance policy. The Huffington Post deserves every bit of opprobrium for this exercise in epistemic closure, and I for one hope that they get it.
