Arianna Huffington, the president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post, shares her story and advice to the crowd of 500 students at Irvine Auditorium. In her talk, she challenged social media’s role in the news. “A lot of what is social and going viral and trending is meaningless,” she said, but admitted that her site is both high- and lowbrow.
