    The huffinton post has some irresponsible articles on occasion. I have been infuriated with several articles that were written by people who were not qualified to address the issues raised! I don’t consider an association with the huffington post and the Own network as a move to legitimize the own network! I feel it’s a sell out as I don’t consider the huff post as a non biased media source!
