Jimmy Soni Explains Why The Huffington Post Is Getting Rid Of Anonymous Commenter Accounts (VIDEO)
Managing Editor Jimmy Soni appeared on CNN Friday to explain The Huffington Post's latest effort to fight trolls. As of next month, users won't be able to create anonymous accounts to post on the site; going forward, their identities will have to be verified internally.
"We're looking to promote civil discourse on our site," Soni said. "We want to do what we've always done: promote a positive, healthy community at our global news website."
