AOL, which is building its footprint as a media company, will purchase the Huffington Post for $315 million in a deal reported last last night.

Last year, we spoke with Arianna Huffington about her company and its collaboration with Yahoo! We assume that collaboration is ending and many have lead to HuffPo CEO Eric Hippeau's resignation from the Yahoo! board.

Last year at AllThingsD, we spoke with Hippeau about developments at the HuffPo.  We have republished both clips on this page.

Beet.TV has been publishing selected clips on the Huffington Post for over a year.  Recently, we entered into a video syndication agreement with AOL's 5Min unit.
