I am concerned about the future coverage of alternative health news by the Huffington Post given this news that it is being bought by AOL. Huffington Post, more so than other mainstream media outlets, has given voice to people with opinions out of the mainstream without the implication that they're "just quacks". Anyone else worried by this?

Personally, I hope AOL enforces professional journalism standards on the site. Huff PO has posted some blatant conspiracy theory stuff ( to put it nicely) with absolutely no basis in fact over the years.

Yes, I think Huffpo has posted some fluff, but I don't know of any other mainstream source that has bloggers actively questioning the healthcare status quo.
