Yeah, AOL has done some pretty dumb things in its time, but buying HuffPo might be the dumbest. The former might survive, but I cannot see them subsidising HuffPo indefinitely, it makes no commercial sense.
5Cats is spot on. There are far more of these. There is even an aircraft carrier named after Foch, whose predictions would mean that such a thing would not exist.

The last one is actually correct. HuffPo has yet to turn a profit. It's apparently being propped up by donations -- probably from some rich liberal like George SoreAss.
