Huffington Post ends exploitation of citizen journalists

Huffington Post seemed like a good and easy platform for aspiring writers who wrote for free, but now that avenue has been closed.

Facts have been devalued by those who proclaim to be news producers, and their poor quality shows. Everyone has opinions. Everyone has a life “hack” for removing stains from shirts.

They don’t have usable and reliable facts on the things that matter.

Now Huffington Post is cutting the deadweight. It will devastate those who still haven’t clued in that “clippings” and resumé puffing doesn’t translate to a legitimate career, but the Post’s model wasn’t working.

Nothing in journalism right now is working.
