McKay Coppins, BuzzFeed’s political editor, is no stranger to haters among his New York media compatriots.
In January, the bespectacled politics wonk drew ire from Complex’s Foster Kamer and Reuters social media editor Anthony De Rosa over a story hedging their apparent-newfound love of guns on a photo from a shooting range.
Entitled “The Endless Vetting of Marco Rubio,” Coppins’ post details weaved into the 555 pages of a Democratic opposition research firms book on the Republican Party’s rising star from Florida. The question he’s left with: “What element of his time in Florida politics will come back to haunt him?”
“Hmmm, yes, what element, exactly? Well, Coppins doesn’t quite say,” Cook wrote with that biting tone Gawker usually saves for Politi — er, “The Politico.”
