Lots to roll your eyeballs back into your skull and check out the wallpaper up there for a good long time re: this Bryan Goldberg (tl;dr, the guy who founded Bustle & Bleacher Report, bought what’s left of Mic & thinks he’s going to pull off Gawker 2.0 and rOcK tHe mEdiA wOrLd as 35-year-old entrepreneurs named Bryan often believe) profile, but here are the choiiiiicest bits to take away / skewer / keep them eyeballs a’rollin:
Ladies, if a media bro ever wants to “pick your brain” about your work/expertise, charge AT LEAST $200 for a package of consulting sessions don’t you DARE give that knowledge away for free i swear to god
Should someone tell this writer about the difference between Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Beyoncé??
“At the beginning, Goldberg managed the engineering team, despite never having written a line of code” <——sounds about exactly right regarding the prevalence of meritocracy in this industry!!!
“Erin Corbett, who wrote for Bustle for a year starting in 2016, says she was initially paid $10 an hour, without benefits, for a seven-hour shift during which she was expected to write three to five blog posts. She was later bumped up to $12.50 an hour.” UM ARE YOU JOKING MOI
And finally, after some SERIOUS drama, Goldberg still thinks Gawker 2.0 will debut this fall?? My dude, there are base tans that have taken longer to build up.
