Thursday's Daily Brief: Arianna Introduces El Huffington Post, eHarmony Hacked, Democrats Raise $60M, Plus James Franco, Norman Lear, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

Thursday, June 7, 2012
Arianna Huffington: MADRID - ¡Hola! I'm delighted to announce the launch of El Huffington Post, a partnership with El País that will combine the Huffington Post's signature mix of news, blogging, community, and social engagement with El País's legendary journalistic traditions. El Huffington Post will be rooted in Spanish culture, will be run by Spanish journalists, and, like Spain itself, will have a very distinct personality and its own way of approaching the world. It arrives at a time when the challenges Spain is facing are of great consequence not only to the people of Spain but to all of Europe and the world beyond.

James Franco: Kristen Stewart the Queen
Snow White and the Huntsman looks great and the actors are fabulous. The film gives us everything that it should: beauty, danger, romance, action, fantasy and a rewarding ending. Of course, this movie isn't breaking new narrative ground -- who expected that?
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand: The Farm Bill Should Protect Hungry Kids, Not Subsidies for Insurance Companies
