'Huffington Post' Employee Sucked Into Aggregation Turbine

The 200-ton content-compiling device, developed by Greek multimillionaire and site co-founder Arianna Huffington,
sucks up original articles from around the web with its massive rotor assembly, re-brands them with the Huffington Post name, and then spits them back out on the company's home page. Workers said that when the machine ground to a halt at approximately 11:30 a.m., Evers reached inside to dislodge a particularly thoughtful 700-word Christian Science Monitor essay on the unrest in Syria that had become jammed. Apparently unprepared for the aggregator mechanism's quick restart, Evers was gruesomely dismembered by its rapidly spinning blades, which soaked the room in blood and unprocessed news content. -- America's Finest News Source

Your Say

Because we're not an ad network, we don't have spciifec criteria for picking partners based on pageviews or audience size. Instead, we look at categories where our sales are strong and in which our sales team feels it can sell more. Then we search for sites that cover those topics and have the same strong reader engagement that has made FM's partner sites succeed in the past. If you haven't already, please fill out the form at and check the prospective site button. That way, when we start looking for sites that fit in certain categories, we'll have you in our database and be able to take a closer look. Neil Chase, VP Publishing, Federated Media
