Will HuffPo Change? Will AOL? Or will everything stay the same?

Do you think that HuffPo will become a little more centrist in it's reporting, or do you think that AOL's acquisition of the media outlet will change anything about it? I realize that time will tell, I am just pondering what may happen.

*YES, I know that this leads to speculation however this post is set up clearly for that*

  • It sounds like AOL is trying to cash in on Huffpo's popularity, I'd say AOL moves left.

  • Personally, I hope it doesn't change too much. It sounds like Ariana will be staying on as editor in chief, so hopefully it won't change a lot. Maybe a risky move for AOL, I don't know. I didn't even know AOL was really still around. LOL

  • "Arianna Huffington will become president and editor-in-chief for many of AOL's Web properties including Engadget, MapQuest, Moviefone, Patch, PopEater, StyleList, and TechCrunch. The new Web media conglomerate will be called the Huffington Post Media Group."


    I don't use Mapquest, MoviePhone, and rarely cite PopEater, etc..... But, IMO~ if Arianna is at the helm~ biased blogging will be abound!

  • Do people still have AOL? I thought they were an old dinosaur with the less expensive companies offering the same services.
    The Huffpo actually has some more centrist stories already though there is no mistaking their position. Just a guess but I think AOL will change more than the Huff.
