The new journalism casts its net
The USC School of Journalism has invited Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post, to speak at its May 16 commencement. Here's how she's described on the school's Web site:
In May 2005, she launched The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that has quickly become one of the most widely-read, linked to, and frequently-cited media brands on the Internet. In 2006, she was named to the Time 100, Time Magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people.
The School of Communication, meanwhile, will hear from actor Geena Davis.
