HuffPost Live’s Nightmare Debut

The Guardian‘s Michael Wolff has reviewed the launch of HuffPost Live. It’s pretty brutal:

“HuffPost Live, a real-time video internet news channel that launched last week, is almost indescribably moronic. It is like fingernails on a blackboard, brutal in its insipid banality and obviousness (if brutal insipidness is possible). But whether this is good or bad for the enterprise, or whether quality is in any way a relevant point, is not at all clear. In some sense, HuffPost Live just dramatically furthers a determined trend. It’s another leap in turning media – that is, content – over to amateurs and know- nothings. Anybody who wants to be an expert can be. All blowhards are equal. HuffPo Live really sucks.”

The New Statesman would never have stooped so low…
