Taibbi takes his leave of First Look Media
Causing quite the stir on Twitter, First Look Media just confirmed that Matt Taibbi has left the company after rumors swirled he had vanished from its New York headquarters. Taibbi originally was hired to launch a satirical website that would have been "the second in an envisioned fleet of titles" conceived by FLM, joining Glenn Greenwald's The Intercept.
The only statement Taibbi has made on Twitter was this response to Carr's post: "Off the record does not mean you can publish your half of a conversation with a source." He might have you there, Paul.
Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
