Huffington Post Investigative Fund Merges With Center for Public Integrity

When we spoke to Arianna Huffington earlier this summer, she expressed regret that her nonprofit, open-source Huffington Post Investigative Fund was not having much luck getting its work picked up by media outlets

Huffington announced today that the Fund was going to separate itself further from the website by joining forces with the Center for Public Integrity. Ryan Tate at Gawker notes that, because the Fund seemed only to supply the for-profit HuffPo with stories, it was having trouble earning tax-exempt status for itself. This separation could help with that — though it looks like the Fund will still have most of its stories published on HuffPo as a matter of course.
