The Huffington Post

Originally founded in 2005, the Huffington Post, which markets itself as ‘the original online newspaper’, offers articles and opinion columns mostly relating to current politics. HuffPost has significant followings among people of all age groups, offering liberal-leaning content to readers around the world. The company’s focus on digital forms of publication rather than print media has helped it to become one of the most popular news platforms on smartphone devices.
