The Huffington Post held a panel in uptown Charlotte Wednesday to discuss how to bring down the nation's high unemployment rate. The event was designed to shift focus away from politics during the Democratic National Convention and onto jobs.

The Huffington Post's editor-in-chief is on a mission. Arianna Huffington wants the news media  "including her own website" to focus less on politics and economic doom-and-gloom and more on what is working in the American economy.
