“She strung me along for two years while I repeatedly asked for funding for three projects, and then I quit,” Fowler told me from Oakland, Calif., as I spoke with her by phone. When Fowler, whom the site nominated twice for a Pulitzer, finally resigned last year in disgust, Mario Ruiz, the spokesperson for The Huffington Post, acidly told Yahoo News: “Mayhill Fowler says that she is ‘resigning’ from The Huffington Post. How do you resign from a job you never had?"If you take the tempting "They chose to blog for free position," read his entire column for a good argument against it. As for burning Fowler, have to love that public contempt for a contributor who you thought was worthy of a Pulitzer but not a dime in pay. Very progressive. My question: Had Fowler won the big (untrademarked) P, who would have received the prize money? *a story reported by another news outlet that they reworded and linked to.
