Debra J. Saunders

Huffington is an entrepreneurial genius at self-promotion. She fiercely surfed the left's discontent with mainstream -- read: corporate -- journalism by promising to keep mainstream -- read: paid -- news media "honest."

Then she rode that left-wing discontent all the way to the bank. Now she writes like a corporate flack, lauding the "merger of visions" made possible after business-savvy CEO Eric Hippeau "monetized" the Huffington Post.

Corporate greed? The New York Post reported that since Feb. 1, AOL shares declined some $2 per share -- devaluing the company by about $315 million, or what AOL agreed to pay HuffPo. At least in this case, the market has taste.
