The Press

Spot the difference

You don’t know what “news” is  Dept
Associated Press:
AOL to Buy Huffington Post News Site for $315M[1]
Ace of Spades HQ:
What’s the going rate for an asylum full of crazies these days anyway?

Just to make things clear, I wouldn’t call Instapundit a “news site,” either, even though Glenn’s news-to-snark ratio beats Arianna’s Gang by a mile or so...

For the AP link, HT to anonymous in Roberta’s comments.
[1]  Yes, that’s the subhead; but the story’s first paragraph makes clear the AP’s view of HuffPo:
Online company AOL Inc. is buying online news hub Huffington Post in a $315 million deal that represents a bold bet on the future of online news.

Post contains 114 words, total size 2 kb.

1 I guess it "represents a bold bet on the future of online news" if the future of online news is "BS no sane person pays attention to".
