    AOL to buy online Huffington Post for $315M

    AOL to buy online Huffington Post for $315M - USATODAY.com




    NEW YORK (AP) Online company AOL is buying online news hub Huffington Post in a $315 million deal that represents a bold bet on the future of online news.

    snip

    Perhaps just as important as picking up a news site that ranks as one of the top 10 current events and global news sites, AOL (AOL) will be adding Huffington Post co-founder and media star Arianna Huffington to its management team as part of the deal.

    After the acquisition closes later this year, Huffington will be put in charge of AOL's growing array of content, which includes popular technology sites Endgadget and TechCrunch, local news sites Patch.com and online mapping service Mapquest.

    You two sound very bitter. Do Ed & Who own AOL stock? Perhaps this is the big move by AOL to restore its relevance.

    They gave Huffy editorial control of AOL newz. If they wanted to be taken any less seriously, they would have hired Michael Moore.

    You confuse bitterness with bemusement. The news might as well have said MSNBC hires Bill Maher as their news director.

    I am enjoying the view of the media dinosaurs sinking into the tar pits.

    I strongly suspect that you and Albert are NOT their target demographic.

    HuffPo can crack the top ten in the raves of youthful ignorance and the twilight hippy, but the mainstream is not so gullible.

    AOL is a dinosaur, a relic of old tyme interwebby. it's a dial-up brontosaurus.
