Happy Hour News
Guys, I got competition according to Axios’ morning email thingie:
Don Jr. and Trump alumni are launching a news aggregation app, MxM News, Axios Media Trends author Sara Fischer scoops.
- MxM (“minute by minute”) is being curated by around eight staffers. There isn’t a plan to create content or hire journalists.
The founders are Don Jr. and Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich.
- Telegraph Creative, whose CEO is former Trump administration official Cliff Sims, is an equity partner and developed the app.
Yup, Junior Mints is gonna be a blogger.
Pro-tip for the new kid on the beat: call it “The Grudge Report.”
