    AOL is a dinosaur, a relic of old tyme interwebby. it's a dial-up brontosaurus.
    25 million visitors a month...lots of potential for advertising revenue...good call by aol i think.

    Buying the site was a good call, giving Huffy top spot was suicide.

    that has yet to be seen...her being in 'charge' could end up making aol relevant again.

    AOL's previous media mergers have worked out so splendidly, why not give it another go?

    Can anyone tell me what AOL's actual core business is? Do they even have one, or do they just overpay for profitable businesses and then screw them up?

    Overpaid by 300+%.

    Spent 40% of their cash.

    They dived into bed with the far left, who's media outlets are getting beaten like a female adulterer in Iran.

    Yes... 1+1=11 for these folks. Phew... sign this set of clowns up for Dumb and Dumber 11 (that's 1+1).

    Hey idiots! I have Air Amerika to sell for $35 million. A great bargain to go with your recently purchased 3nd rate Olbermann, I mean Huffington Post Socialist website.

    What happens when Huffington croaks? The site is worthless... it's tied 100% to her screeching personality.

    Yes, they will appeal to a certain market segment, and might get a trickle of profit from it (but enough to recoup investment??? No chance), but in the process they have just painted themselves as leftists in a world growing less tolerant of them and their ailed and failed world view.

    Good-bye AOL. A footnote in media histoire.
