Arianna Huffington, the site’s founder and editor since it launched in 2005 as a liberal answer to Drudge Report, left the company last year.

She left behind her a mini-media empire spanning 15 international editions that pioneered the use of native advertising and a focus on data.

Figuring out where the Post goes next falls to Polgreen, a 15-year veteran of The New York Times who was most recently the editorial director for New York Times Global.

To represent people who feel like they don’t have a voice.

I read a lot of journalism about the people who voted for Trump and the people who decided not to vote and stayed home.

So the Huffington Post, which started out as this sort-of anti-Drudge, is looking for Trump voters?
