An incredible reporter, an unrelenting court transparency advocate, a steadfast document linker, and an all-around great human. Early congrats to the very smart news team that snatches Zoe up.
After 5+ wonderful years at BuzzFeed News, I'll be taking a buyout and leaving soon. I'm proud of my work and what the phenomenal politics team accomplished. I've loved being part of this newsroom and am deeply sad about what's happening (🧵)
