In an exclusive video interview with TheWrap 36 hours after the media world was shaken by the news that AOL would acquire The Huffington Post for $315 million, Huffington said "absolutely no" to the question of whether AOL content would have a leftist political bent. (See video I, interview continues in second video.)
"Of course not," she said. "AOL is not a political site. AOL has Politics Daily, a section which covers politics, but it's not a political site. I was always clear that HuffPo would not just be a political site. I always wanted it to be an Internet newspaper, covering every aspect of life. "
