Allman Apoplectic

Posted By on Mon, Jun 1, 2009 at 4:46 PM

Gambit editor Kevin Allman is about to explode. Turns out his favorite person to despise, “Satan's own Botoxed handmaiden” Arianna Huffington, is going to receive a lifetime achievement award from Syracuse University’s journalism school, Newhouse School of Public Communications.

     Newhouse is bestowing the I-3 honor on Huffington because of her “impact, innovation and influence” in the field of journalism. Who else could have come up with the idea of not paying journalists, and even charging internists for the pleasure of writing for her?  And when that doesn’t work, she copies off the kid sitting next to her, or all the kids sitting next to Huffington on the Internet.

     Unlike Newhouse dean Lorraine Branham — who makes her living at a university, which is anything but free, and doesn’t have to worry about reporting for a living, or her job — not everyone is happy about the announcement. 

     We await Allman’s reasoned response.
