Why The Huffington Post and Boston.com are getting into streaming media

Nieman Lab :: Can a news site become a TV network? Or a radio station? Or if it can’t become one, can it at least grow to include one? These aren’t theoretical questions, as Monday saw the launch of HuffPost Live, the new streaming TV-style video network from The Huffington Post, and RadioBDC, an alternative streaming radio station from Boston.com, the webbier side of The Boston Globe.

Huffington makes her tablet magazine free, after five issues

Capital New York :: "Huffington", the magazine, executive editor Tim O'Brien announced during a companywide meeting Wednesday afternoon, has switched to an unpaid model. It's now listed as a free download in the iTunes store. In all, five issues were published before the change was made, though it's also worth noting that Huffington was originally conceived as a free offering when it was in development this past winter.

Dori Hartley: When you die on Facebook

Huffington Post :: For about four years now, I've kept an account on Facebook. It's been good; I've generally enjoyed my time spent on the site. I've reconnected with old friends, sold books and directed readers over to my Huffington Post essays. I've seen the engagement announcements of my friends, read about their marriages and break-ups -- I've seen their newborn babies and photos of their beloved pets. I've also witnessed another strange natural occurrence: the death of friends. So, what happens when you die on Facebook?

Jonathan Tasisi and 9,000 unpaid bloggers: Lawsuit vs Huffington Post tossed

Thomson Reuters :: AOL on Friday won the dismissal of a lawsuit by unpaid bloggers who complained they were deprived of their fair share of the roughly $315 million that the company paid last March to buy The Huffington Post website.

Where does Arianna fit into AOL’s new patch plans?

paidContent :: AOL has hired a new Chief Content Officer in its latest attempt to reboot Patch, the network of hundreds of sites that offer “hyper local” coverage. The appointment of Parenting.com’s Rachel Fishman Feddersen comes at a high time when AOL CEO Tim Armstrong is promising impatient shareholders that Patch is “not a pet project” and that he will turn around the sites that reportedly lost $100 million last year.

While a turnaround strategy is clearly in order, there’s a big wild card here. Namely, what role will Arianna Huffington now play in the Patch properties?

Huffington Post's Twitter account hacked on Sunday afternoon

The Observer :: The Huffington Post’s Twitter account was hacked Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t even fun, just offensive.

How The Harlan Daily Enterprise, Kentucky, ended up running a Huffington Post story

Niemanlab :: The Huffington Post is, in the minds of some journalists, the web’s bad guy, a nemesis that subverts the norms of legacy media, soaking up other people’s work in the pursuit of money and the all-powerful pageview. And maybe it is! But here’s one tiny tale where the content flows in the opposite direction. Readers of The Harlan Daily Enterprise, a small newspaper located in southeast Kentucky, found something strange on the front page a couple months ago — a Huffington Post byline.

[Justin Ellis:] It’s not the beginning of a new print partnership agreement for HuffPost, just a gesture of journalistic goodwill.
