Huffington reported this in an recorded interview, to be broadcast next Wednesday, on the Rob Kall Bottom Radio Show
, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly and South NJ and also accessible as a podcast at OpEdNews.com and on iTunes, listed as the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show.

When Jon Stewart heard of Arianna's free bus offer, he responded,
"Oh my God, Arianna just Oprah'ed the buses!" Stewart said. "By the way, I hope that her announcement was real and not some Huffington Post thing where it's not like actual transportation, it's just embedding a link to Greyhound. Like, I hope they're not just being bus aggregators in this situation."
