Liberals Sue Arianna Huffington for Stealing Website Ideas

Amazing. The well-credentialed progressives Peter Daou (who was Hillary Clinton's internet campaign person in 2008) and James Boyce have filed a lawsuit against Arianna Huffington for stealing their detailed written proposal for a liberal website and using it to create Huffington Post:

Peter Daou and James Boyce charge that Huffington and partner Ken Lerer designed the website from a plan they had presented them, and in doing so, violated a handshake agreement to work together, according to a lawsuit to be filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan. “Huffington has styled herself as a ‘new media’ maven and an expert on the effective deployment of news and celebrity on the Internet in the service of political ends,” says the complaint. . .

"They presented the ‘new media’ ideas and plans of Peter Daou and James Boyce as their own in order to raise money for the website and enhance their image, and breached their promises to work with Peter and James to develop the site together.”
