Huffington Post 'Slave' Writers in Revolt Over AOL Sale

As a contributor to The Huffington Post since 2008, I have posted 25 original articles that I value at more than $25,000, for free.

So eager to have a platform for my stories about U. S. soldiers returning from Iraq with Cancer, I didn’t ask for payment; I merely handed over the 20 to 30 hours of reporting on each piece gratis.

Over that period, I had asked Arianna Huffington several times for financial support. But after being referred to the D.C. based Huffington Post Investigative Fund as a candidate for payment, I was turned down by the fund, as well as by Executive Editor Roy Sekoff .
