Huffington: “There’s confusion about the nature of blogging on our site”

“People want the platform our site provides. It’s more like writing an op-ed,” says Arianna Huffington. “They write in their own time — they have no deadlines.” She also tells Jon Friedman: “I see the future of news as being free, unless you’re offering very specialized content. Consumer habits have changed too much to switch to a system where content is placed in walled gardens. People are used to getting [the news] for free.”
