In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

TheWrap's Dylan Stableford, NYT's Media Decoder blog on latest news re Bloggers class-action lawsuit against Ariana Huffington, HuffPo & AOL

What's that, you say that there's yet another big media story that has generated little-to-no local news coverage in parochial and off-the-grid South Florida?
No, that's not at all unusual, is it?


Zero coverage as of now despite how popular and revered it is among the army of liberal news junkies who are 'chronics' on South Florida's more popular current events blogs, who say its name like a mantra?

Hmm-m... what gives?

A story that as of 3 p.m. had generated
ZERO coverage at the Miami Herald even though everyone knew it was coming:

The Huffington Post is the target of a multimillion dollar lawsuit filed in United States District Court in New York on Tuesday on behalf of thousands of uncompensated bloggers. Jonathan Tasini is leading a $105 million lawsuit against the Huffington Post on behalf of unpaid bloggers.

Be sure to read the heated Readers Comments to this NYT post wherein
supporters who brook no dissent against their patron saint, push back hard against the very people who wrote the articles on the HuffPo they were forwarding via email to their friends just a few weeks and months ago because they agreed with them.

But now, because they speak out against
Ariana Huffington and her business practices, those very people are ENEMIES OF THE STATE: their own insular state of mind.
