Arianna Huffington Speaks! (On Friday)

Might be worth holding off on happy hour this Friday: NYU is hosting a potentially entertaining panel featuring Arianna Huffington and four other people we wouldn’t mind hearing from, either.

The title: “How the Internet is Changing American Politics”. But don’t let that put you off. It’s a good roster:

  • Jeff Jarvis, founder of political blog and CUNY journalism professor who has worked for media companies ranging from Time Warner to News Corp.
  • Arianna Huffington, founder of political news blog The Huffington Post.
  • Micah Sifry, co-founder of, a site that analyses how presidential candidates are using the web in their campaigns.
  • Lisa Tozzi, NYT politics editor in charge of web coverage.
  • Jay Rosen, press critic and NYU journalism prof.

The free event will begin at 6:00 pm in Room 109 of NYU’s Warren Weaver Hall at 251 Mercer St, and is being put on by GroundReport, the NY Citizen Journalism Meetup, and a student group at NYU. Can’t make it? It’ll be webcast live on
