Huffington Post's project to write about economy off to shaky start
Nicholas Carlson of The Business Insider writes Tuesday that the new Huffington Post project with $1.75 million in funding designed to write investigative stories about business and the economy is off to a shaky start.
Carlson writes, “But two months later, freelance Wall Street reporter Teri Buhl — she does work for the New York Post and Trader Monthly — tells us the HuffPo Fund is having trouble ‘getting any content out.’
“Specifically, Teri says HuffPo ‘lied about having their site ready and a having a business editor to edit my work.’
“And so, five weeks after HuffPo agreed to buy her story, Teri finally bailed and sold it to The Mortgage Lender Implode-O-Meter instead.
“We asked Teri if she thought HuffPo was having a hard time spending its $1.75 million fast enough or if it was ‘something else.'”
