From BuzzFeed to the New York Times … it’s really the next logical career step.
Ben Smith writing full time about the media is worth the cost of a NYT subscription by itself.

If the cost of a NYT subscription were $0, then we’d totally agree with Brian.

Honestly, Smith’s editorial decisions haven’t done BuzzFeed any favors. What makes the New York Times think he’ll add anything positive to their already worsening reputation?

Will he, or anyone for that matter, notice the difference? https://t.co/rmKqCbGTzw
