Tasini complained that "Huffington bloggers have essentially been turned into modern day slaves on Arianna Huffington's plantation" and said he was bringing the action because "people who create content ... have to be compensated" for their efforts.No they have not; no they don't. Huffington Post bloggers submitted copy of their own choice. Privileged liberals who write for blogs are not in any sense equivalent to slaves. Slaves have no choices.
Just in case this distinction is not apparent, here, also from the Guardian, is a video about slaves from Nepal in the UAE. The people in this video do not have blogs.
