The movie's extreme marketing campaign has put its lead character, Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy, everywhere. And we mean everywhere -- billboards, commercials, viral videos, Twitter, and appearances on everything from "Saturday Night Live" to ESPN's SportsCenter. Now, Ron is taking over one of the biggest websites around: The Huffington Post.
In a column for the site, Ron declares, "I believe that news is a powerful stallion of justice, galloping across this great, fragrant, fertile land." He then takes a look at some of the "news stories" on The Huffington Post.
About this story, "Rob Ford, Toronto Mayor, Admits Having Smoked Crack Cocaine (VIDEO)," Ron writes, "Give the guy a break. Who hasn't smoked a little crack before a public appearance?"
About "North West: Kim And Kanye Are Rumored To Pick Out A Name As Annoying As Their Relationship," Ron gives a big shrug. "I don't see anything wrong with this," he says. "Veronica and I were very close to naming OUR son Latitude Glenfiddich Burgundy."
Ron ends his column by writing, "The obvious conclusion is that the Huffington Post newsroom needs a man at its helm." Is Burgundy that man? See what The Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington had to say about it.
