The Huffington Post is a leading online news source founded by Arianna Huffington, Ken Lerer, and Jonah Peretti. Contributors include more than 3,000 bloggers—from politicians and celebrities to academics and policy experts—who contribute in real-time on a wide-range of topics.
The site started as a politics blog, but now covers more than 20 categories, including media, business, entertainment, living, style, sustainable "green" living, world news, technology, nonprofits, college life, and comedy. It began launching local versions in 2008, and increasingly is experimenting with social networking features.
