CitizenTube Interview: Roy Sekoff of The Huffington Post

Founded in 2005 by Arianna Huffington, The Huffington Post has grown from a small collective of bloggers to a massive operation of reporters, celebrity commentators, and citizen journalists—and like its conservative counterpart the Drudge Report, it has become a go-to Internet source for news and opinion. In recognition of its achievement, the Huffington Post received the 2006 and 2007 Webby Awards for Best Politics Blog.

One of the people responsible for the site's success is Roy Sekoff, Founding Editor of the Huffington Post and a frequent political contributor to MSNBC. Sekoff recently took time to answer some questions for CitizenTube about the Huffington Post's beginnings, their citizen journalist project "Off the Bus," and the ethics of journalism in the YouTube age.
