The Huffington Post raises $25 million from Oak Investment Partners, according to the likes of VentureBeat, TechCrunch, and Silicon Alley Insider. Apparently the previous reports said $10 million, and if SAI is to be believed, this puts the value of the company at a whopping $100 million. I don’t know about that, but this just reaffirms my beliefs that the Huffington Post won’t be among the casualties of the recession.
