Abstract

An acquaintance is married to someone high up on the US political blog website Huffington Post which has made waves in the US elections with its “citizen reporters”. Apparently, the HuffPost senior editors were very conflicted about reporting a story that was damaging to Obama – the man they clearly backed for the candidacy. That in itself raises questions about the Huffpost’s claims to be opening up a new form of more accountable news media.
