Huffington Post and Goldman Sachs Have Make-Out Session at Davos

Would you like to read something weird? Here is a Goldman Sachs press release headlined "OP-ED, THE HUFFINGTON POST – ARIANNA HUFFINGTON AND LLOYD C. BLANKFEIN DISCUSS OUR COMMON GOAL: EMPOWERING ENTREPRENEURS AND CREATING JOBS."

I mean, some of it is true! Goldman Sachs does indeed mentor women all over the world in creating small businesses, and their 10,000 Women project is actually one of the most interesting programs in the world. And then there's this:

This past summer, The Huffington Post broke new ground in the way the media commonly report economic news. Frustrated by the relentless coverage of disaster, tragedy and scandal in traditional media sources, The Huffington Post launched "What is Working," dedicated to covering stories of progress and success, particularly when it comes to creating jobs in the United States, and brought 100 startup entrepreneurs together at both political conventions to showcase all the different ways they're creating jobs.

That's great and all. But haha, yes, the Huffington Post just must be so frustrated by the "relentless coverage of disaster, tragedy and scandal in traditional media sources," I can hardly imagine their feelings of helplessness before it.

Anyway, also.

So great that it's John Legend playing at that party. I hope he plays his biggest hit, "Ordinary People." And a roomful of Davos attendees sing along to the chorus, "We're all just ordinary people…" And laugh and laugh and laugh.

I thought the first sentence of the quote would read: This past summer, The Huffington Post broke new ground in the way it pays writers, it doesn't. Goldman Sachs could believe they did not think this up themselves.

pleasant article, quite articulate. I prefer this a lot. My partner and i run into this article by means of google search results. I'd personally go through your site once a week and discuss this for you to my own manuscript editorBlog. Make sure you preserve this current. Continue the nice work.
