If you're an athlete, and you are reading this, Emmanuel Yarborough is heavier than you. Guinness World Records named the 6-foot-8, 704-pound former Morgan State wrestler and football player the world's heaviest living athlete, as reported by the Huffington Post . After earning All-American honors as a wrestler in college, Yarborough fought as an MMA fighter and now competes as a sumo wrestler. According to the Huffington Post, Yarborough, 47, has held the title since 2001, and his achievement, so to speak, was recently featured in a Guinness e-book, “Wacky Sporting Champions.” Yarborough told the Huffington Post that though it is possible to maintain a healthy lifestyle as a sumo wrestler, he is trying to slim down.

Former NFL wide receiver Donte Stallworth, who played for the Ravens in 2010 and spent the summer as a coaching intern with the team, joined the Huffington Post last night as a politics fellow covering national security, the site announced . Far be it from me to talk about his credentials, but it's clear to see this is another interesting step for Stallworth. He joined the Ravens in 2010, after a year-long suspension for vehicular manslaughter. He wasn't very productive for the Ravens but was popular with his teammates and won the Ed Block Courage award.

Netflix confirmed that all 13 episodes of the second season of "House of Cards" will be available for streaming at 3:01 a.m. (ET) tomorrow (Feb. 14). There had been bad reports of a midnight launch. That's in part the result, I suspect, of careless reporting and Netflix using Pacific Time, which is three hours behind Eastern Time. But it's not even midnight Pacific Time; it's 12:01 a.m. So let's just be blunt and say those who reported it that way are bad reporters. I have never seen as much bad reporting as there is in connection with this great series.

WBAL-TV fired a producer-reporter yesterday for altering a video in such a way as to put false and potentially inflammatory words into the mouth of Fox News anchor John Gibson. The video that was doctored by John Sanders, who covered technology issues and produced promotional videos for Baltimore's NBC affiliate, became a viral sensation last week after the Huffington Post presented it as authentic. Driving the video's popularity is the nature of the words that Sanders inserted and their potential racial and political implications.

Here are a few factoids gleaned from all the celebrity "blogging" going on during Day One of the Huffington Post, writer/politician/media maven Arianna Huffington's new online enterprise: A quote from the mystic (some might say sappy) Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran was scrawled on Hunter S. Thompson's kitchen wall, according to actor John Cusack, who attended a memorial service for the recently deceased gonzo journalist. American Idol has an unlikely fan -- the dyspeptic TV personality Larry David, according to his wife, Laurie.

For the past couple of weeks, the Sundance Channel has been dedicating Monday nights to two of my favorite things: politics and documentaries. It has a couple of excellent films tonight. Up first is Blog Wars which tracks the explosion of political blogs. Director James Rogan focuses on such blog giants as Markos Moulitsas (Daily Kos) and Arianna Huffington (The Huffington Post) as 2006's hotly contested midterm elections get under way. (Sundance Channel, 8 p.m.) *** The Third Monday in October follows with a delightful look at 11 middle-schoolers as they campaign to lead their student governments.

There's bad journalism, and then, there is bad online, show-biz journalism, which is in a class by itself when it comes to laziness, lack of fact-checking and flatout hack-ocity (I know that's not a word, but it speaks to my anger at the moment). Huffington Post put a report up Thursday with the headline, "'House of Cards' Season 2 Likely to Be its Last, Producer Says. " That could be of some interest not only to fans of the Netflix series, but also folks in Baltimore where the series in filmed.

An online rant by a man whose sister was killed in a car crash in Baltimore went viral this week after he accused Progressive Advanced Insurance Co. of siding with the driver whose car hit his sister's vehicle in June 2010. Matt Fisher's Monday post on tumblr.com sparked international coverage and a barrage of outraged tweets and comments. "If you are insured by Progressive, and they owe you money, they will defend your killer in court in order to not pay you your policy," he wrote.

Whatever the ultimate impact of AOL's $315 million acquisition of the Huffington Post on the new-media landscape, it's already clear that the merger will push more journalists more deeply into the tragically expanding low-wage sector of our increasingly brutal economy. That's a development that will hurt not only the people who gather and edit the news but also readers and viewers. To understand why, it's helpful to step back from the wide-eyed coverage focused on foundering AOL's last-ditch effort to stave off the oblivion of irrelevance, or Arianna Huffington's astonishing commercial achievement in taking her Web news portal from startup to commercial success in less than six years.

On May 29, two days before Israel's botched raid of six "humanitarian" ships bound for Gaza, Robert Naiman, the policy director of something called "Just Foreign Policy," wrote an item on the Huffington Post headlined "Gaza Freedom Flotilla Shows Awesome Power of Nonviolent Resistance." Mr. Naiman waxed lyrical about how the moral authority of nonviolence had compelled Turkish-controlled Cyprus to help the flotilla, while Greek-controlled Cyprus had allegedly caved to Israeli pressure in refusing to help the heirs of Gandhi (it couldn't have been because the Turks were up to no good)
