(Newser) – Stephen Colbert is one-upping Arianna Huffington. Because her Huffington Post likes to "repurpose" his show's content—it even has a dedicated page for his material—he's going to do the same to her. Introducing the Colbuffington Re-Post, which is in fact the Huffington Post website with Colbert's new banner atop, notes TechCrunch. Colbert is also happy to sell his new site—for $316 million, a wee bit more than HuffPo got from AOL. "Arianna if I find a buyer, I promise to give you the same cut you give me," says Colbert.
