The Media Landscape Is Drastically Different Since HuffPost Launched

The way we consume news has changed dramatically since the Huffington Post first launched on May 9, 2005.

Newsstands would have seemed fuller 9 years ago with publications like Gourmet, O at Home, the Cincinnati Post and CosmoGirl still in circulation. Twitter would have looked worlds different without outlets like Buzzfeed, Gawker and Business Insider crowding up the feed. And the launch of new networks like Al Jazeera America has made even the task of watching TV feel entirely different.

To put it simply, the media landscape today is nothing like it used to be. So in honor of the Huffington Post's 9th birthday, we have compiled a list of some of the biggest launches and farewells in media over the last (almost) decade.
