Bold, New Media Concern Announced

Breaking CNN!

Who will stand up for the tragically underserved audience of “people who are college educated” and “read in English” you ask?

Ben Smith, that’s who! Anyway, ol’ Buzzfeed Ben who now works at the NYTimes as a media critic is leaving to form yet another new media venture. He’s joined by a fellow Smith (Justin Smith late of Bloomberg). Ben says this is their mission:

“There are 200 million people who are college-educated, who read in English, but who no one is really treating like an audience, but who talk to each other and talk to us,” Smith said. “That’s who we see as our audience.”

I see white guys talking to white guys.

    That is whom we see as our audience. Direct object. College educated indeed!

  2. I suggest that the name of their venture is Worlds Largest Circle Jerk and a bold white text on a white background style. With a white noise soundtrack.

    I predict many hawt takes… “Jonathan Swift”-like articles about maybe we should just farm the poor people for food, but like Ironically not satire.

    Followed by the inevitable “Help Help I”m Being repressed! Canceled by people criticising my words! Come and see the violence inherent in the system!” twitter meltdown.

    Not that “read in English” is any sort of a dog whistle eh?

    How is it that this egomaniac can fit his head through a doorway? Asking for a college-educated white guy who can read English and form his own opinion without Ben Smith’s help.

    Well I think this merits an addition to collectives like a “murder of crows” or “lack of pronciples” so I’m happy to suggest a “douche of bros.”
