Vox annexes Mother Jones journo
Vox prepares to welcome Lauren Williams into the fold as lead editor. Williams joins the explainer news site from Mother Jones, where she is wrapping up her time as story editor.
Her Mother Jones colleagues will clearly feel her absence, as evidenced by engagement editor Ben Dreyfuss mournfully tweeting, "#FF @laurenwilliams who is leaving us for that site that explains things. We’ll miss u," which was capped off with an appropriately sad emoticon.
Meanwhile, senior editor Nick Baumann suggested, "Guys it's LEDE editor."
