The Huffington Post has raised an additional $25 million in venture funding, according to a report this morning by Kara Swisher of AllThingsD.  In a subsequent post, she reports that the Huff Post has formally announced the news.

In January, I interviewed Huff Post investor and board member Eric Hippeau of SoftBank about the value of the media property for venture capitalists.  I’ve republished the interview today.

Update 12/2: Ad Age’s Michael Learmonth says that Huff Post now has more value than some big newspaper companies.
