Q&A About the Denis Collins Diary

I sent a few questions about the Denis Collins diary to Arianna Huffington.  She referred them to a member of the Huffington Post staff, who quickly sent the answers.  Here are the questions and responses:

Was there any contact between Denis Collins and the Huffington Post before the verdict was announced yesterday?

No.

Did Collins have his diary already written yesterday, or did he write it in the time since the verdict was announced and the jury was dismissed?

We have no idea.

Are there any more entries of his trial diary on tap for publication in the Huffington Post?

No.

What was Collins paid by the Huffington Post for the trial diary?

Zero.
