Huffington Post Censures Investigative Reporter
Los Angeles, California - One of the most respected investigative reporters in the world, Virt of Assimilated Press, found out today that he has been banned from The Huffington Post. No reason was given and there was no warning or indication of this radical move on the part of The Huffington Post to stifle debate on the Internet. Shocked by this Soviet style behavior, Assimilated Press conducted an examination of Virt's postings to The Huffington Post which showed that he has not engaged in profanity or flaming which makes this particular move on their part both mysterious and troubling.
Sources at The Huffington Post have told Assimilated Press that higher-ups in the organization were feeling a great deal of pressure from many of the sacred cows that Virt has skewered over the past few months and decided that censuring his voice would be preferable to having to displease so many powerful people. These sources also said that The Huffington Post has concocted a cover story in order to deflect the harsh criticism that will result from this action to silence the voice of dissent. They will say that Virt was engaged in blogwhoring for simply including links to important breaking stories. This is certainly hypocritical as a fact check has shown that many people who post or comment at The Huffington Post are selling or promoting something, including the beautiful and talented Arianna Huffington.
Assimilated Press hopes that The Huffington Post will see the error of their ways and will not follow the old Soviet Union style of information management but will instead open their windows so that the sun can shine in and Virt's voice can once again be heard at The Huffington Post.
