One of the many young, fledgling Huffington Post writers who make HuffPo the sustainable blog-aggregate sovereignty it is, got suspended indefinitely for doing “a terrible job ‘summarizing’ an Ad Age thing,” writing up a post that was lacking a reasonable amount of citation. One could say that this young writer took the fall for sub-par HuffPo practices, which is unfortunate.

“So the Huffington Post thinks it gets off clean from these entrenched practices by temporarily canning a smart young person who’s doing one of their terrible jobs as a way to get into writing and as a way to pay bills. It shouldn’t.”
