Some insight into how little VCs understand journalism. "Everyone is a journalist" might be worst take of year. These guys don't respect the profession as also witnessed by their hiring of 'growth hackers' who spam reporters 4x and whine when they don't get positive coverage.
If everyone with a social media account is a journalist, then everyone with a RobinHood account is a hedge fund manager, everyone with a photoshop account is a graphic designer and everyone with a copy of Logic is a grammy award winning artist.
This is the same guy who literally champions that young entrepreneurs should "hate the media" as he's said in other posts. I wonder what the impetus is here. Seems like a certain cohort of bubble investor simply do not want accountability. With WeWork unraveling we see why.
