So, when Facebook was hacked last week, the Huffington Post rightly noted it on their homepage. When a report came that many hacks in the U.S. were coming from the Chinese Army, they had the story on the homepage, as well. And so they should.
But now -- now! -- it turns out the Huffington Inamorata (tm) has been hacked, they not only put in on the homepage...and they not only make it a headline...but...they make it as HUGE a banner headline as they've had in months. And with an exclamation mark, no less. (Sorry, I mean, "...no less!")
I certainly understand the concept of wanting to protect your One True Love. And of wanting all the world to come to your aid when your Dear One is in trouble. But...I mean, c'mon, guys (which is getting to be a recurring phrase here.) Get a grip. Companies get hacked. It happens. You yourself report on it -- all the time.
Personally, and this is just me, mind you, I happen to think that that thing they have at the very bottom -- "Targeting Power Grid, Gas Lines, Waterworks" -- is just a wee bit more important and deserving the Big Banner Headline Splashed Across the Front Page, if they're going to put anything up there. But hey, that's just me.
