Since Michelangelo Signorile took over as “editor-at-large” of the awful Huffington Post’s Gay Voices blog, have things gotten better over there? Uhh, no.

This is what Signorile—a journalist with a history of substantive, controversial reporting—was tasked to do?

I’ll stop writing these rants about how horrible Arianna/AOL’s content farm is as soon as everyone I know stops posting links to it everywhere I turn. Stop linking to them, everyone! If I want to read inane bullshit from people who aren’t getting paid, I’ll look at my Twitter feed.
