The Huffington Post was sold to AOL last Monday in $315 million, its founder, Arianna Huffington, was feted as a new media pioneer.

Huffington has been facing a backlash over the sale,from readers worried about what it will mean for the future of the site and from unpaid bloggers who helped make The Huffington Post property.

The sale to AOL has attracted more than 7,500 comments as of Friday, many of them bemoaning the purchase of the left-leaning news and opinion site by AOL.

According to the Euranya “I am disappointed and expect that HuffPost will be just like any other mainstream media outlet soon enough, with advertisers and the bottom line taking precedence over exposing the truth,”.

“Your readers have made this site too and you made this decision without our feedback. I am going to miss my morning Huffington Post.” “Why did you sell out?” a reader going by “bart4u” asked.

The Huffington Post has attracted a strong following nearly 25 million unique visitors a month for its lively mix of news, entertainment, opinion and blogs submitted by academics, entertainment figures and politicians.

“AOL gave you $315 million: We’re asking you to give a little back to the unpaid writers who built the Huffington Post,” said the Facebook page, which has nearly 600 fans.
