Politics and publishing powerhouse Arianna Huffington told a journalism conference in the U.K. yesterday that The Huffington Post will be getting into the local news business, and will kick off with a Chicago edition. (Indeed, a Chicago placeholder page is already live.) The plan is to expand to “dozens of U.S. cities,” and signals Huffington’s desire to expand beyond the political blogging and news aggregation for which the site is known.
