AOL (AOL -0.2%) will cut nearly 20% of its global workforce - more than 900 of its 5,000 workers. The India unit will cut about 400 employees and outsource another 300 positions; some 200 jobs will be eliminated in the U.S. The cuts come barely a month after AOL's $315M acquisition of Huffington Post.

    I don't think anyone can say for sure whether the Huffpo acquisition was worth it yet. I think your opinion of Huffpo is clouding your mind to the point where you believe you can predict the future (and it is negative).


    Huffpo still drives a ton of traffic and Armstrong seems to be making some good moves. I wouldn't buy AOL at this point, but they seem to be executing on a clear strategy.
