Former HuffPost CEO Joins Glenn Beck’s New Website

Bill Carter reports that former Huffington Post CEO Betsy Morgan will join Glenn Beck’s new website “The Blaze,” serving as president at the HuffPost imitator named for Moses’ burning bush.

Ms. Morgan worked at The Huffington Post for two years, departing in 2009. “I am a very apolitical person. I’m a business person, who is absolutely fascinated by brands,” She told The Times, speaking about her new job.

Despite the fact that The Huffington Post was conceived as a liberal Drudge Report — this origin is the subject of a piece in the new Vanity Fair —  the site has spawned a host of conservative imitators over the years, among them Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller and Fox News’ Fox Nation.
