“Hypocrisy,” of course.
It’s very entertaining to watch Newsbusters hammer AOL and the Huffington Post for their rank hypocrisy in banning Andrew Breitbart from the latter’s front page for calling Van Jones a commie punk somewhere else, while letting Bill Maher stick around even though he used the c and t-words* somewhere else. It’s even more entertaining to watch AOL and HuffPo try to put up a Cone of Silence on the subject. But if you really want to hit AOL hard on this – and it has to be AOL; obviously, Arianna Huffington is comfortable with having one standard for people on the Right who make statements, and another with people on the Left who make infinitely worse statements – then you have to hit them in the only place that you can; their pocketbooks. Which is very, very difficult, of course.
Oh, by the way: did you know that AOL still has 2.5 million actual subscribers, despite the fact that they don’t actually offer access that’s more sophisticated than dial-up? Seriously. If you have high-speed already, that $9.99/month plan pays for dial-up backup service; if you don’t actually need dial-up, you can keep your AOL account for free.
*I wasn’t raised in a pigsty – unlike, apparently, Bill Maher. I ever use these words on my blog, my mother would drive down from Jersey to kick my rear. Which, of course, I would have to let her do.
