Our callout for Citizen Journalism on Tumblr is now on every story on HuffPost. Just tag your reporting “OfftheBus” and we’ll consider it for inclusion on OfftheBus New Hampshire or our national OTB liveblog.

Great idea on the part of HuffPo/Patch.

If you aren’t following HuffNos, you should. They do a solid job of finding the Huffington Post’s low points. This is particularly low.

Daily Swipe: The Huffington Post Shows Support for Terrorists 

dailyswipe:

In a recent newsletter called HuffPost Hill, The Huffington Post attacked U.S. government officials for their killing of radical Islamic terrorists Anwar al-Awlaki and Samir Khan, despite the fact that these to so-called Americans have tried and in some cases succeeded in killing countless… [more]

We’ve covered this story before and have made clear that there’s a balance here. But the problem that we see here is one of due process. HuffPo’s report is slanted in a way that sharply pins the story on an angle that frustrates many among the left. But it’s another thing entirely to paint HuffPo as anti-American because they disagree with something the U.S. government did. Here’s the issue, as many on the left see it: There’s this thing called due process for U.S. citizens, and they feel that Obama basically ignored it in hopes of stopping someone who was seen as greatly influential in al-Qaeda, a man who despite that had American parents who didn’t want the U.S. government to simply drop a bunch of bombs on him. "The question then is, why The Huffington Post is so eager to support a terrorist and murderer?" That’s just as slanted as HuffPo’s take. They’re not “eager to support a terrorist and murderer,” but they think that due process has a place in the war on terror, even for perceived enemies of the state. And they’re not alone. Glenn Greenwald’s been heavily against this, too.

To non-residents of the DC area: The closure of the South entrance of the Dupont Circle station will be a major pain. Just … unbelievable. Also, welcome to DC, HuffPo.

musingsbymattheous-deactivated2 says: Why are you using The Huffington Post as a source? They're known to make up 'facts' just to get fodder for their so called 'news site'...I'd rather get my new from a piece of used toilet tissue in a Taco Bell bathroom than read this garbage.

» SFB says: We have our disagreements with HuffPo from time to time (we think they over-aggregate a lot of their content at times, and we side with the writers in the case of them not getting paid), but we think you’re giving them short shrift. They do have some pretty great journalists there, such as Craig Kanalley. If you notice, we also run Fox News content as well, if it’s relevant and newsworthy. We try to base what we post on the content itself, not simply the source. So to put it simply, we’re going to keep using them if the content they have is worthwhile. — Ernie @ SFB

When a company like Huffington Post or GAP employs crowdsourcing to get proprietary design work done for free, the result is almost always negative. To many designers, it’s the same as asking a plumber to do some work on the pipes and in lieu of a paycheck, they’ll just put up a sign in the bathroom acknowledging all of the plumber’s hard work. But as with any fight (or tango), it takes two. Huffington Post shouldn’t have asked for free work, and up-in-arms designers should understand that their own willingness to accept work on spec is what keeps this practice around.
Good Magazine senior editorial designer Dylan C. Lathrop • Taking both designers and The Huffington Post to task after HuffPo held a contest to have people redesign its logo for its politics section. Now, HuffPo isn’t the only publication to ever do this — but the problem is, they’re a very successful company that can afford to pay a designer to do this, and let’s face it — the pig needs a top-down coat of paint. The Gap tried something similar when people decided that they hated their logo redesign, and they felt the pain too. Fact of matter: If you’re a company that makes millions of dollars a year and has an audience larger than a couple of people, you can afford to pay your writers pay someone to design your logos. source (viafollow)
