Does a viewable copy of ABC’s letter exist anywhere?


#3

Actually, scratch that. There’s plenty of posturing from both sides to read here.


#4

This deserves a wholehearted “oh snap!”

UPDATE (3:00 p.m.): Hamby, the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning report, has left CPI for BuzzFeed, where he will serve as a reporter on its investigations team.

So he’s going from a year-long Pulizer-prize-winning investigation at CPI to writing “You won’t BELIEVE these six shocking ways that coal companies screwed over their miners”?

I thought for certain that was a joke, until I looked. But they also have someone now from ProPublica. WTF? is all I can say.


#7

Buzzfeed has an investigations team?


#8

I know, right?


#9

If he can think of six ways to screw over coal miners that I won’t believe have been tried at every opportunity, he can probably write well enough to thrive anywhere…


#10

Then you are in luck. His follow up article will be titled “The One Weird Trick to Getting Over Your World-Weary Cynicism”.

Reminds me of ABC ripping off Slate. Sincerest form of flattery?
