Mediaite: “Betsy Morgan, The Huffington Post’s former CEO, is heading to The Blaze, Fox News’ resident Star Wars aficionado Glenn Beck’s four-month-old website……it’s heartening news for Beck and for the future of his site. The Conservative author, TV host and radio personality was hit with some bad news earlier this week when it was announced that his radio show would be dropped from New York’s WOR station due to insufficient ratings.
…..Morgan’s new role is described as “establishing The Blaze as a premiere digital network curating content, community and debate and further leveraging Beck’s loyal audience.” Morgan, for her part, says she is “looking forward to expanding the team and developing businesses around topical content in all areas that engage audiences and drive a healthy national debate.”
Thank you Chi
Then again, we all know how easily Arianna Huffington switches with the political winds … one minute a supporter of Newt Gingrich’s ‘Republican Revolution’ and Bob Dole’s 1996 Presidential run, next minute a Professional Leftie. Whatever’s most profitable, hey?
And HuffPost calls President Obama a sell-out? :-)
Thank you kellyamore1 for reminding us that Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos, was also ‘once’ a Republican.
“During the 1988 presidential election, he served as a Republican precinct captain and assisted with the re-election campaign of Illinois Congressman Henry Hyde” – yep, Moulitsas worked for the re-election of the guy who, “as a member of the congressional panel investigating the Iran-Contra affair, vigorously defended the Ronald Reagan administration, and a number of the participants who had been accused of various crimes, particularly Oliver North”. And the same Henry Hyde who “argued that the House had a constitutional and civic duty to impeach Bill Clinton”.
True, we can all see the error of our political ways and switch sides before it’s too late! But it’s interesting that both he and Huffington have similar political backgrounds. Brings a whole new meaning to the ‘Professional Left’?? Whatever way the wind blows……
