Stephanopoulos’s Budding Bromance With Jason Binn

Call it a man crush or what you will, but ABC’s GMA anchor George Stephanopoulos has had a chummy online connection to LA Confidential Magazine Publisher and CEO of Niche Media Holdings Jason Binn in recent months. But Stephanopoulos has serious competition. Binn is close with the reality show Kardashian family -  sisters Kourtney, Khloe and Kim were on the cover of the magazine’s Fall issue and he tweets with them and about them often. He also writes to @serenawilliams, @alyssa_milano, @johnlegend and others in Hollywood. Binn has retweeted Stephanopoulos and referenced him once in early September, saying, “@GStephanopoulos w/ our White House Deputy Social Secretary buddy Ebs. Just finished @SoulCycle. Tomorrow morning make us proud!”

Stephanopoulous, meanwhile, has a healthy trail of tweets to and about Binn:

July 12: “Check out @JasonBinn. He knows what’s going on in all the biggest US cities. And he loves a good carnival ride.”

August 2: “Just heard from my pal Jason Binn, who took heart from Greenspan. Follow him @JasonBinn for all you need to know about what’s hot and not.”

Sept. 28: “Thanks Jason 4 listing me in LA Confidential as a “must follow”. Check out @JasonBinn.”
