According to his biography, Adam Clark Estes “attended Harvard University where he was an editor at the Harvard Crimson and president of Current Magazine, a national student magazine partnered with Newsweek. Estes is also the editor of IvyGate, a blog covering the news and gossip of the Ivy League, and has worked at Salon.com, 826 Valencia, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the United Nations. He lives in New York City.”

He is also “Associate Editor of Citizen Journalism at the Huffington Post Investigative Fund.”

What does he do with all these credentials?

He uses his high journalism perch to…mock a young man who died of swine flu at Cornell University on Friday.

Yes, really. Read the whole thing.

Here’s the screenshot:

Getting your money’s worth, Arianna?

I’m delighted that today we are launching a new venture — The Huffington Post Investigative Fund. This nonprofit Fund will produce a wide-range of investigative journalism created by both staff reporters and freelance writers.

As the newspaper industry continues to contract, one of the most commonly voiced fears is that serious investigative journalism will be among the victims of the scaleback. And, indeed, many newspapers are drastically reducing their investigative teams. Yet, given the multiple crises we are living through, investigative journalism is all the more important. As a result, all who recognize the indispensable role good journalism plays in our democracy are looking for ways to preserve it during this transitional period for the media. …This investigative initiative is being funded by The Huffington Post and The Atlantic Philanthropies, and will be headed by Nick Penniman, founder of The American News Project, which will be folded into the Fund. Nick and I first worked together back in 2000 when we organized the Shadow Conventions to address issues — poverty, the failed drug war, and money in politics – that neither political party was focusing on. We’ve stayed in touch ever since, and I am really looking forward to working with him on producing journalism with real impact.

We’ll start with a budget of $1.75 million — and continue to raise funds and expand the project as we move forward.
