As I have said here before and will say often, I love Jesus Martinez and Drunken Stepfather. He is a funny guy and he is good at what he does, which is show lots of partially clad or naked women. There are lots of other sites that also have the same kind of format like Egotastic and Hollywood Tuna and they do very well for themselves. Apparently they must be doing really well, because The Huffington Post is starting to infringe on their territory. I guess I expected more from Huffington. I read the site frequently because I like how they have every piece of news other than sports right in front of you and they have lots of celebrities who blog and a decent entertainment section, so it is a regular stop.
I have always thought of it as journalistic and trying to stay at a certain level of respect. That was kind of shattered today when they devoted ten pictures and a headline stating "Padma Lakshmi's Sheer Dress And Natalie Portman's Near Slip (PHOTOS)" I mean I posted naked pictures of Rihanna on Friday so I'm not throwing stones at anyone. I just guess I expected more from them and didn't realize they needed the hits so bad that they were willing to provide zoomed in photos of Natalie's half exposed nipple or more closeups of Padma's breast through her dress.
Like I said, I have done the same kind of thing, but I'm just a guy who writes a blog and not a site that wants to be the substitute for the print media in the next few years. I don't know. What do you think? Am I making a big deal out of nothing or have they crossed the line in trying to attract new readers?
