Welcome To The Bitchery

Bye, Jessica. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I've not been around these parts lately, so have only just found out that Jessica Coen is leaving. I came here to say GOOD. Jezebel was wonderful when Anna Holmes ran it, and it became progressively less intelligent, less witty, less warm, less inclusive, less coherent, less fun under Coen's editorship. The Lena Dunham debacle was it for me. What petty, mean, pointless shit.

I'm not passing judgment on Emma Carmichael's abilities, because I'm not familiar with her work; but it's hard to see in what possible universe she could be better qualified than Dodai. Maybe D didn't want the gig, who knows?
