To the casual observer, Arianna Huffington's career trajectory would be one of the more baffling success stories in politics and media. How could one woman manage to evolve from being a contrarian of the feminist movement of the 70s, to an intellectual with questionable credentials in the 80s, then to a strong advocate for the Republican party and Newt Gingrich in the 90s, and lastly an outraged liberal with a distaste for mainstream media? A new, highly critical review of the Huffington's new book, Right Is Wrong published in The New Republic, takes the new media maven to task, painting her as a cunning businesswoman with a penchant for sensing the zeitgeist, but lacking any legitimate credibility. The writer, Isaac Chotiner, unleashes a barrage of beefs with Huffington, but one of the most current—and common—criticisms is of her Web site, which he paints as a barnacle on the hull of journalism. Her new book, according to Chotiner, is "less genuine and more tiresome," and plagued by gaps in logic and Huffington's ego.
