Many times articles from elsewhere that are excerpted and then re-titled by the Huffington Post end up being far more popular than the originals. They use a combination of software tools and well-trained staff to locate articles and then repackage them to rate high in Google searches. It’s slick and efficient but tends to obscure the origins of the content. But, as the article points out, it’s not something the “old school” journalists seem capable of doing themselves.
