Arianna Huffington, who has redefined the meaning of GRATING, is skewered by Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters for her glaring ignorance of basic economics
KEITH OLBERMANN, HOST: Now let’s bring in Arianna Huffington, editor in chief, co-founder of the Huffington Post. Arianna, good evening.
ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: Good evening, Keith.
OLBERMANN: So, the GOP says renew the tax cuts for the richest two percent of Americans. That will free the richest two percent of Americans to start hiring everybody else, and the economy will be stimulated overnight and we’ll all have ice cream in the morning. Does Huffington Post hire more people when your personal tax rate changes?
HUFFINGTON: Well, actually, Huffington Post operates like most American businesses which is that our hiring practices have nothing to do with the income or the tax rate of the people who are running the business. And it’s the same everywhere. Whether we hire or not depends on demand. It depends on whether we’re getting enough advertising dollars.
So, her organization’s hiring decisions have nothing to do with the income of the people running the business. Instead, they depend on whether the publication is getting enough advertising dollars.
OH! So income DOES play a major role! This woman is so dingy she cannot even manage not to refute herself in a matter of seconds. I think Ms. Huffington has more than earned today’s Marxist Moron Award!
