Arianna Huffington: ‘Half Our Traffic Comes From Non-Political Verticals’

FF_raves_huffington1_f.jpgEarlier today we interviewed Arianna Huffington for mediabistro.com’s So What Do You Do series. She told us some excellent stuff, and we’ll save most of it for the article, but we found the following fact interesting enough to share right now: “Even though we started as political platform but we now have half our traffic coming from non-political verticals.”

As for whether The Huffington Post is worth $200 million: “I have not really looked at all at the value of the site because the site is a work in progress,” Huffington said.

Her new book, Right Is Wrong: How the Lunatic Fringe Hijacked America, Shredded the Constitution, and Made Us All Less Safe, comes out on Tuesday.

The full story will run as soon as we fight through her Greek accent and transcribe the interview.
