New York mag: 'Huffington will not be defeated'

In a new story headlined, "Maharishi Arianna," New York magazine says: "With charisma, drive and a sprinkle of New Age fairy dust, Arianna Huffington not only sold her website to AOL but subsumed the joint enterprise into her personal brand. But can even a guru as powerful as she make the cursed company work?"

  1. AOL bought Huffington Post for $315? Oops...

  2. Huffington, like AOL founder Steve Case, laughed all the way to the bank.

  3. PuffyHo would fit right in at the Crystal Palace.

  4. 6:45 Ooops, indeed. (I've now fixed that.)
