HuffPo To Add Original Reporting

So this is what they need the $5 million funding it got earlier this year: to ramp up its original content and hire journalists. The Huffington Post is preparing to venture into original reporting, with plans to cover Congress and the 2008 presidential campaign. It has hired Melinda Henneberger, a print journalist most recently with Newsweek magazine, as its political editor. The site has about 2.3 million unique visitors a month, it says.
