Update

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.
