What will AOL do with Huffington Post if the left-wing website by Arianna Huffington (pictured) does not make a profit next year?
When The Huffington Post was sold for $315 million nearly three years ago, Huffington told her new boss, AOL Inc Chief Executive Tim Armstrong, that they had to uphold the tradition she started when she launched the site in 2005.
AOL has pumped tens of millions of dollars into the The Huffington Post website.
The Huffington Post has yet to turn a profit for AOL.
AOL may be learning the hard way that conservative political endeavors are profitable while liberal political endeavors seldom are.
