First Look Media Putting An All-Star Team Together

Gawker Editor John Cook Joining Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi at First Look Media
Wow.  This Omidyar venture is going to be one of my top daily reads.  Quite a roster he's put together. Steinbrenner budget!
Pierre Omidyar, the eBay billionaire turned independent media patron, has snagged his next investigative journalist for the budding First Look Media project, in the form of Gawker editor John Cook, reports Recode. After more than a year in charge at Gawker, Cook will join Glenn Greenwald, whose national security site The Intercept is the First Look flagship, and Matt Taibbi, whose forthcoming property will focus on corporate malfeasance.
And help from Emptywheel too.
