    Both Bloomberg and the LA Times are reporting this. Below is the Bloomberg story.

    First off, everyone misunderestimated ( ;) :rolleyes: ) HuffPo's net worth.. Second, whoever thought AOL still existed, and had money!

    I bet the right will counter this by having Fox buy Breitbart.

    I bet the right will counter this by yawning.

    First time I saw this a couple days ago, my first thought was, 'birds of a feather band together'. Two providers of inane content poorly covered with a veneer of faux-journalistic credibility - looks like a match made in heaven to me :rolleyes:

    Nope, I don't like the huffington post - at all :p

    *shudder*

    It is actually "Birds of a feather, flock together.", but who am I to intercede in this discussion?
