...and AOL buys the Huffington Post

Here, demonstrating Arianna Huffington's commitment to non-corporate, Progressive, values. What a world, what a world. First, they just suck it up when it becomes clear that Obama is criticizing them, and people like them, as being the 'professional left', now, well....AOL. They're the Borg.

The NY Times article has this great paragraph about where the future lies in terms of content for the HuffPo:

"AOL’s own news Web sites like Politics Daily and Daily Finance are likely to disappear when the deal is completed, and many of the writers who work for those sites will become Huffington Post writers, according to people with knowledge of the deal, who asked not to be identified discussing plans that are still being worked out."
