HuffPost doesn’t pay many of its bloggers, but come the end of October, Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington will foot the bill for thousands of New Yorkers to board shuttle buses to attend Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart‘s “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington.

But HuffPost CEO Eric Hippeau offers another perspective.

HuffPost, along with the thousands who have signed up for the bus ride to DC, look forward to October 30th. And we see it as a good sponsorship opportunity.”
