Tommy Christopher...One tweet, two fucks 

Buzzfeed employees work at the company's headquarters in New York January 9, 2014. BuzzFeed has come a long way from cat lists. This month one of its journalists was on the ground in Kiev reporting on the crisis in Ukraine, and last December it published an in-depth article on a Chinese dissident living in Harlem, New York. The kittens haven't disappeared, but these days there is serious journalism as well. Founded in 2006, BuzzFeed is now among the top 10 most-visited news and information sites in the United States. Headquartered in New York, BuzzFeed now has more than 150 journalists, an investigative reporting unit, bureaus in Australia and the United Kingdom, and foreign correspondents in far-flung places like Nairobi and the Middle East. Its expansion comes amid a wave of investor interest in new media companies that are trying to capitalize on a decade-long wave of job cuts at newspapers, and new technology that has upended how news and advertising are produced and distributed.

10:48 AM 08/28/2014

Does Gawker editor-in-chief Max Read need a little training in open-mindedness? Perhaps a hippy retreat in California might do him some good, some shooting in the woods with the Heritage Foundation, some therapy to make him less frightened when it comes to people who may or may not think differently than him. Or, kindergarten.
