Founded by Ariana Huffington, the Huffington Post began as a blog but is now considered a full-fledged online news organization. In February 2009, reporter Sam Stein became the first web-based journalist to ask a question at a White House news conference and be a member of the White House press corps. [1]

Ariana Huffington is a major Democratic contributor, who ran against Arnold Schwarzenegger for Governor of California, and the publication clearly is of the American left. Still, it represents an emerging form of news coverage, and much more conventional news media, such as Fox News, are accepted as having an ideological bias.
