NYMag.com has a great write up on Ben Smith and Buzzfeed. The site, which has generated it’s own buzz (no pun intended) following the hire of Politico's Ben Smith, is like a Deb making it's debut at the Iowa Caucus. With Ben's arrival comes a new coverage section, BF Politics, as well as a host of new writers (including Matt Cherette, Whitney Jefferson and Zeke Miller). Ben makes one thing clear:
"We’re going to cover the hell out of politics. The timing is such that this carnival happens once every four years and we couldn’t miss it."
And Buzzfeed is making good on their coverage. Matt Stopera is also reporting from the Caucus and feeding original content to the site.
