The Prom Queen's assistants also blog

I don't care what side of the aisle you're on - maintain some Integritility, act like you have a fucking scrap of humanity in you and stop fucking about with the facts! This is just fucking pathetic... (from dKos)


Ethical Blogging At HuffPo ?
I blogged a few weeks ago about the situation in which an invited blogger, Dr. Peter Rost was fired from Huffington Post after he revealed a troll that showed up on almost all of his posts was in fact an employee of Huffington Post. As a result of Dr. Rosts research and subsequent blog outing of this person, he was fired.

It gets even better - go read...

Look, I don't care how liberal, conservative or wicked kewl you think you are - you have an obligation, as a blogger or blog-manager, to keep things Real. If you run a multi-author site, either vet your contributors or let them know that you have a certain 'theme' you're aiming for. And don't send your boot-lickers to refute them while you stay safe in your 'it's not My peanut butter on your chocolate!' tower.

I'll guarantee you, if I posted something that wasn't accurate or Integritastic, Thers or one of the others would call me on it, ask me to correct it and/or they'd delete the post. Same goes with comments: if we disagree with a commentor, we disagree - but we won't fake comments to make someone look bad. We don't fuck around here, kids. And by the by, see any ads on this site? This is homegrown Integrilasticity - we don't answer to anyone but you and our souls.

I don't know - maybe it's just me... I like to think that the internets give us a voice, even if no one's listening to us, but aren't we all just a little beyond the Jr. High games by now?

You'd think....

Comments:
I confess I'm really in the online blog thing for the BITCHIN' VIDEOS!!!!!
 
I sent you an mp3... ??

Also, internal polling shows that we're the #1 website I'm commenting on, right now... MOE +/- 100%
 
Riplay,

So, eef I have thees right,
HuffPo should have acted more integritudinally toward Dr. Rost, who should no have outed la trollita, si?

Those cabrones are just lucky that we are here to keep them on the straight and narrrow.

so.
 
I actually spoke to the lovely and talented Arianna at a little summer soiree at Kevin Drum's place last Sunday, and she claimed that Rost had been asked politely to focus, concentrate, no, get his shit together before he was dumped.

The weird thing about the commentor was that he was a HuffPo employee, the IT guy. I know several of the folks who work there, and I'm pretty sure none of them would ever comment on a post, as this would be just too kinky. His defense was that he did use his admittedly unique last name as his nom de bloggue, but as he was a pretty deeply behind the scenes guy, no one knew who the hell he was.

So I dunno. I've been privileged to post at HuffPo for some time now, and while I write mainly about politics, I work in the music biz and have fairly often posted stuff about music, musicians, and the biz with nary a complaint. Arianna's words were "As long as it's interesting..."

In fact, in the spirit of shameless blogwhoring, here's a post I did about the music biz at my place.

And here's one that appeared at both places re: the Beatles contribution to the recording business, at HuffPo.

Let me also state that I am, as always, chock full o'bloggy integritude, and I swear every word is true. I think.
 
if I posted something that wasn't accurate or Integritastic,

Unpossible.

Thanks! I will reciprocate. I write about music too.
