The Huffington Post, The Emerging News Site of The Axis Powers?

O.K., so maybe Germany and Japan haven’t been murderous invaders for 68 years, but you clicked, right?

The Huffington Post announced the launch of a German edition on Monday, rounding off its local European offerings that already include versions in France, Spain, Italy and the U.K. There’s also a Canada edition.

And a Japanese edition is coming in May. Hence the headline. Har, har.

As with the other sites, HuffPost partnered with a local media company — in this case Tomorrow Focus AG.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Tomorrow Focus to launch the German edition of the Huffington Post,” editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington said in a press release. “Tomorrow Focus is deeply involved in virtually every sector of digital content in Germany, and there is no one we’d rather be partnering with for this expansion.”

The site will be based in Munich and staffed by local journalists and writers.
