Stephen Colbert Mocks The Huffington Post, Starts “Colbuffington Re-Post”
Stephen Colbert recently made fun of the Google vs. Bing debate, and now he’s taken on the Huffington Post’s content strategy, which has been in the news a lot since its acquisition by AOL.
"Hopefully HuffPo will be a new source of revenue for AOL, whose income currently depends on 82 year old Delaware resident Claire Meyers and the $10 an hour she still pays for dial up service," he adds.
"Until the Huffington Post pays me for re-purposing my content…I am happy to announce my brand new website, The ColBuffington Re-Post," Colbert proclaims. "It has got everything you love about the Huffington Post, because it’s the Huffington Post with a new border around it that says, ‘The Colbuffington Re-Post.’"
