Newspaper Guild Supports HuffPost Strike

The Newspaper Guild is joining with the unpaid bloggers at The Huffington Post, calling on them to withhold content. In a letter that calls the Post's practice of publishing the work of unpaid writers “unprofessional and unethical,” the newspaper union outlined demands, including a pay schedule and the clear separation of editorial content from advertising. Arianna Huffington mocked the idea of a strike this month, saying, “Go ahead, go on strike,” and that “no one really notices.”
