If 80 percent of success is just showing up -- two Democratic consultants are trying to give the The Huffington Post a run for their money.
Peter Daou and James Boyce say they came up with the idea of a political website - where public figures would be invited to blog...
...during a meeting at co-founder Arianna Huffington’s house in December of 2004. They accuse Huffington and business partner Ken Lerer of presenting collaborated ideas as their own. (Video from MobLogic TV)
Daou and Boyce are filing suit against Huffington and Lerer -- saying the latter violated a “handshake agreement” to work together on the site. And the stakes could be high -- Forbes reports the left-leaning blog was valued at $100 million in 2008.
Politico - which broke the story - suggests the suit presents problems for the site’s heads.
“The complaint is a direct challenge to the left’s most important media property ... And it challenges Huffington’s own oft-told story of coming up with the idea in conversation with Lerer and other friends.”
And the accusation is being met with more than a few skeptics. Panelists on MSNBC’s Morning Joe -- where Arianna Huffington is a frequent guest -- say they aren’t buying Daou and Boyce’s story.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: “Their credibility is undercut a bit by, they also claim to have written half the songs since Sgt. Pepper and said they created the atomic bomb and the Feds owe them, like $28,000.”
PANELIST: “I had an assistant working with Ken Lerer in his office, and basically the two of them were really generating this website on their own. Arianna was doing it out of her blog. It’s an absurd idea, and it was Ken and Arianna did this thing together. It’s just not right to say it was stolen.”
In a statement Huffington called the suit a -quote- “completely absurd, ludicrous supposition” by two men who’d been refused jobs at the site. And Business Insider’s Henry Blodget says beyond that -- Daou and Boyce are going to have a hard time making their case look legitimate in the court of public opinion.
“We do find it curious that Daou and Boyce waited six years to make this claim. And, from a legal perspective, we note that ‘handshake agreements’ are the equivalent of the ‘dorm-room chitchat’ that a judge ridiculed in the Facebook case.”
But Daou and Boyce aren’t the only ones claiming responsibility for The Huffington Post’s success.
Earlier this year, conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart told Wired Magazine it was actually HE who came up with the idea.
...which led a writer for Mediaite to conclude -- if you really think about it -- The Huffington Post model wasn’t really ANYBODY’S idea.
“At this point, it seems like everybody but Tina Brown invented what we now know as The Huffington Post. ... the truth is that it probably wasn’t invented, only discovered —its model was an inevitable one that was simply waiting to be used.”
Who’s telling the truth? And who’s huffing and posting?

How far do you have to go to go too far for television? Disinformation found out with its own television show on the UK's Channel 4 TV Network. DisinfoTV on DVD, hosted by Disinformation co-founder Richard Metzger, is a show that acts like a television newsmagazine on speed, filled with enough counter culture propaganda, that according to Wired magazine, "makes Jackass look tame." The show challenged Channel 4's censors when it originally aired and resulted in the network refusing to broadcast certain segments. What did make it into people's homes became an instant classic of the weird and unusual, and the series was a hit. Eventually bought by the Sci-Fi Channel for the United States, it was considered to controversial and never aired in America. In this DVD, you'll see everything as it was intended–including the banned segments.

I have here Wired magazine and it’s written “itALIENS” – but if you remove “it” at the end of the day they mean “Aliens”.
So, do you believe in Aliens?
In my opinion there is life outside of this world – probably there are millions of planets that can generate life.
People though usually think about aliens that can save or destroy this world. This is totally irrelevant – but I would like to know if you already had an experience with Aliens. I personally had, more than once, and the most recent one with UFO’s was in the Mojave Desert.
So I want to hear from you if you had an experience which involved UFO’s or if simply you believe in extraterrestrial life.

We read with interest the January cover story in Wired by Thomas Goetz titled "The Truth about Cancer...Don't try to cure it. Just find it."
The piece is about Don Listwin, former heir apparent to Cisco's John Chambers. Listwin left the company in 2000 with a personal fortune of some $100 million.
Wired.cancer Devastated by the death of his mother to ovarian cancer, he set out to find early detection to different forms of cancer. He has funded scientists from around the world under his Canary Foundation. A main focus of the foundation has been ovarian cancer, a disease which is extremely difficult to detect, with symptoms presenting themselves often in advance stages, with limited treatment options.
Beet Medicine, Our New Channel
Here at Beet.TV, we are readying a new channel about medicine; we call it the "root to medicine." Like the Beet.TV you know, the interviews will be candid, unrehearsed and informative. The text annotation will be written by a noted surgeon. I am very excited about this. It will launch next month. More details to come.
To explain the surgical options for patients with ovarian cancer, I interviewed Elizabeth A. Poyner, MD PhD, a prominent Manhattan Gynecologic Oncologist.
