What to spend the money on???
I wonder what they needed the funding for? Last time I checked, a blog was pretty inexpensive to operate.

Best of luck to them. It goes to show how the world on media is changing!

Reporting on the news vs creating the news
From reading this article (and thats all I have to go by) it looks like HuffingtonPost is made up of quality journalists doing traditional news gathering but delivering it through a blog service. So, it is a traditional media business with a different front end. I expect the big media organisations to get their act together and start seriously delivering their content in a similar way to compete.
