BuzzFeed’s Michael Hastings Remembered One Year After Car Crash

heres-the-late-michael-hastings-10-essential-tips-for-young-journalistsToday marks the one year anniversary since BuzzFeed reporter Michael Hastings died in a car crash in Los Angeles. The former Rolling Stone contributing editor‘s novel The Last Magazine was posthumously published this week by Blue Rider Press.

The highly regarded journalist was the recipient of a George Polk Award for his Rolling Stone profile of General Stanley McChrystal, published June 22, 2010. Two years later, Hastings wrote for Rolling Stone about Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal, asking whether the Pentagon would leave him behind. Eleven days before his death, he penned an op-ed for BuzzFeed on “Why Democrats Love To Spy On Americans.”
