OMG! BuzzFeed to Open D.C. Bureau

The buzz around BuzzFeed opening a Washington bureau is true. Political Editor Ben Smith confirms to FishbowlDC that the LOL-laden site is shooting to bring on new blood by summer to get the cat pic operation up and running. Will he poach from his former stomping ground of Politico where he still writes a column?

“I’m aiming to hire a talented, heavyweight player-coach as bureau chief, someone hungry and well sourced to do great original reporting on the Hill, and to send a reporter or two down after the campaign to cover the new, or continuing, administration,” Smith told FishbowlDC. “They’re going to be some of the great jobs in DC, because it’s going to be all about original reporting. Hoping to do the hiring over the summer — not immediately.”
