Buzzfeed SE fired

    Ben Mathis-Lilley, the sports editor at Buzzfeed, is out.

    Or, as he put it on Twitter, "Just to be entirely clear, I got fired. SUPER fired, maybe. This is not a joke. For those asking WHY I got fired, it's honestly nothing interesting or crazy. Just the usual not seeing eye-to-eye."

    I wonder if he wanted to do too much actual journalism instead of charticles, strange polls and galleries of hot chicks.

    Charticles is a great word.

    Coming up: 38 celebrities who won't do it, but if they did do it would do a good job as Buzzfeed's next sports editor

    I just can't think of anything I've ever seen on there that looked like it needed editor oversight.

    Should've gone with "An editor gets called into his boss' office. You won't BELIEVE what happens next! MUST SEE!"
