Click HERE to see THE COLBUFFINGTON RE-POST.
So...The world of Arts and Entertainment. Oh what a tangled world wide web we host, when first we practice to re-post.
"Where more people get their news...than they probably should."
This is something you hear from The Daily Show. It also pretty much sums up The Huffington Post. But, hey! More power to her (Arianna). By now she's been re-posting so much news - and opinion - that she appears as a pundit from time to time. But again - more power to her. Maybe someday I'll be looked at for my opinion, and not for any facts I try to put out there. Maybe then I can sell it for a few hundred million.
Much of The Huffington Post is simply a re-posting of news (or gossip) which can be found elsewhere. Well, news and clips from TV shows. This is what caught Stephen Colbert's attention.
He made the point that he wasn't getting paid for any of the clips from The Colbert Report that were being (re-)posted on the Huffington Post. Colbert then came up with the idea of the re-posting of the re-posts. That is, he's re-posting the entirety of the Huffington Post, simply putting a new border around the whole thing, and calling it THE COLBUFFINGTON RE-POST. The Huffington Post of course gave us an obligatory re-post of Colbert's talk of, um, re-posting. This will then of course end up being re-packaged as part of the COLBUFFINGTON RE-POST, which will then be...My God! Will it ever stop???
Thank you Arianna, and Mr. Colbert...the ball's in your court.
If I need to get a petition together with 5 or 10 names on it...or even more...I will.
So...like the above cartoon of Your Brain on Speed Racer...
I'll be watching. But I have to charge my phone.
