More Straight Dope, Less Woo

We Don't Need The Huffington Post:
When a Christian extremist espouses bigotry and lies, we atheists are quick to call out moderate Christians for not speaking out in opposition. When a rabid Teabagger willfully distorts information and pushes propaganda, we progressives call out mainstream Republicans for not standing up to them. And yet, many of us continue to promote The Huffington Post with our links and tweets even though they are a notorious peddler of the pseudoscience and woo that most of us claim to oppose.
Atheist Revolution's round-up of Huffpo problems. It's worth remembering Ms. Huffington's past life as a right wing goon. I'm not sure her tactics and sensibilities are really in keeping with reality-based progressivism.
