Arianna participated in a panel discussion for the website I Want Media's The Future of Media: 2010 forum this past Tuesday. Hosted by NYU journalism professor and I Want Media founder and editor Patrick Phillips, the panel focused on how the Internet and other digital media are transforming the traditional media landscape. The panel also included NBC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams, Google News senior business product manager Josh Cohen, AOL Media president David Eun, Boy Genius Report founder & editor Jonathan Geller, Glamour magazine editor in chief Cindi Leive, and Yahoo Media VP James Pitaro.
When moderator Patrick Phillips asked Arianna if she had ever considered a print media version of The Huffington Post she replied, "No. We've considered a lot of things, that's one thing we have not considered. But in a sense we are integrating more and more of traditional journalism."
