The Huffington Post punked by Doug Stanhope

Source: dougstanhope.com

The Huffington Post is making great strides in their quest of destroying whatever is left of journalism.  It would be hillarious if they weren't making bucket loads of money in the process.

You'd think after several original bloggers were spooked by Arianna money hoarding ways, nobody would want to want to touch that horrid organisation with a 10 feet pole.  But there appears to be no end of losers lining up to contribute to the destruction of what was once a noble profession.

One such person is somebody by the name of Mike Ragogna.  He proved that he has no business calling himself a journalist or interviewing people last week when he mixed up interviewee's numbers and called comedian Doug Stanhope instead of the Sex Pistols' John Lydon, was told that he had called the wrong number and did not heed the advice and proceeded to conduct the interview.  Doug Stanhope, being a comedian, saw this as a comedic opportunity and - although The Huffington Post have destroyed all the evidence of the interview - somebody managed to record the audio.  Here it is for your listening experience.

Maybe they should stick to slideshows of Kim Kardashian's ass.  I hear it's huge and she instagrams her pictures every hour.  There's very little margin for error there.
