    I heard there was an option for the purchase of the JI political forum on page 8 of the contract.

    So... does that deal make AOL more relevant or HuffPo less relevant?

    Daily Paulitics should at these rates garner at least $5 million.

    It makes HuffPo less. Seriously, how is AOL even still around?

    And AOL, in a display of its tech savvy new media relevance, will make this announcement by mailing out 3 billion CDs in clear acetate envelopes.

    Where did AOL get that money - selling drugs over the dial-up Internet?

    Survival move by AOL, IMO. Does anyone still use that antiquated service? Hell, Facebook and Microsoft even killed Instant Messenger.
