CUE HYSTERIA:

HuffPo's New AOL Overlord Is A Republican Donor, "One Of The Most Conservative People Around" (Nicholas Carlson, Feb. 7, 2011, Business Insider)

Here's a tidbit that might make the news even harder to swallow.

AOL CEO Tim Armstrong "calls himself a libertarian," but is in fact "one of the most conservative people around," says a source close the chief executive.

Unless there is another Timothy Armstrong living in Riverside, Connecticut, the AOL chief is also a Republican donor, having given $500 to Thomas Herrmann's 2010 run for Congress.
