Arianna Huffington - The Blogger

Image Hosted by

Arianna Huffington is moving into blogsphere.

Arianna Huffington—everyone’s favorite Greek-born conservative-turned-progressive-activist pundit—is getting into the game. On Monday she will launch The Huffington Post, which will be like most Weblogs in that it will put heat (and perhaps even shine a little light) on the news of the day through diarylike musings, opinions and links. It will be unlike most blogs in that's 300 celebrity contributors will include people like Norman Mailer, Diane Keaton and Warren Beatty. And Maggie Gyllenhaal, David Mamet and Tina Brown. And Walter Cronkite. And so on.

How will we know that these people are actually writing their posts and not having their handlers craft them?
Obviously, there would be no other reason for Mike Nichols or David Mamet to send anything unless it was a thought they had that they wanted to put out there. Their thinking is as much theirs as a fingerprint.

And your blog will strive to find “the real thing?”
The blog will be whatever the blog is. It’s not my blog. It’s over 300 people at the moment, and it keeps growing every day. [I’m] setting the tone, choosing who to invite. But there’s going to be no editing, and it’s going to be unfiltered and uncensored.
