Andrew Breitbart and Huffington Post

Allowing Andrew Breitbart to blog at Huffington Post made a lot of Huffington Post readers upset, with Breitbart ultimately being removed from the front page. As Breitbart specializes in smears based upon falsifying information, his material certainly isn’t worth posting, even if kept off the front page. However,  once he was placed there, I question the wisdom of removing him without better cause. This just gives him more ammunition to whine about liberal bias (not that this is a surprise at Huffington Post).

I hardly think all the efforts to have Breitbart removed were worth the effort. Personally, if I were to engage in a campaign to alter what is posted at Huffington Post I’d be more concerned about the junk science which often appears there. I figure that is more likely to do harm, considering that few Huffington Post readers are going to take anything Andrew Breitbart says very seriously.

    If HuffPo can walk and chew gum at the same time, maybe it can both expunge Breitbart, AND improve the scientific credibility of its coverage as well.
