Howard Fineman Goes to Huffpo

1284994845754.jpg
After only 30 years at Newsweek, reporter Howard Fineman is going to Huffington Post.

NYT reports:

Mr. Fineman’s move from a print medium to online news is a sign that The Huffington Post, which has until now heavily relied on young bloggers, is maturing. And it signals that the site, which has become one of the largest news destinations on the Web since it started in 2005, is investing significantly in its growth.

This could explain why Facebook says he has too many friend requests, the equivalent would be a voicemail box being full, so he can’t accept any new requests. Hint.

We don’t know who we should congratulate more – Fineman or Huffpo – but this is no lateral move for Huffpo. This puts the site on a whole new level.
