Westword, too, is part of this project. As senior editor for special projects Katherine Zaleski points out in her own blog, she and Axelrod confirmed a desire to link to our content during drinks with Westword editor Patricia Calhoun and web editor Joe Tone, "who shared some great Colorado stories that made this Manhattan-raised news girl blush." That's our specialty, of course -- but the main goal of these parties, as well as of the other info purveyors with whom HuffPo has made similar agreements (Channel 4, the Colorado Daily and plenty more), is to increase web traffic in the hopes of surviving the ongoing earthquake in the journalism industry.
No telling at this point if it'll work, but today, at least, HuffPo Denver is jam-packed with articles, blogs, etc. -- a roster led at this writing by former Congressman Tom Tancredo's critical comments about U.S. Senate candidate Jane Norton. The perspective is inarguably left of center, but there's so much stuff on hand that even conservatives may enjoy sifting through it. And then getting pissed off, no doubt.
