Seattle PI to Resemble Huffington Post?
A New York Times article published today focused more on the Hearst Corporation's push to reinvent the PI as a online-only publication. The Web-only edition of the newspaper will resemble more of a Huffington Post model, NYT reporsts, a political news Web site filled mostly with commentary and advice from bloggers, with less emphasis on original reporting.
With a skeleton staff of 20 or so, the PI has reportedly recruited a cohort of high-profile columnists including Norm Rice, Constance Rice, Jim McDermott and Maria Goodloe-Johnson, as well as a "former police chief, a former United States attorney, and two former governors" will be included on the site's masthead" the article said.
