They're starting their own media company. Congrats to them for getting their kickoff into the New York Times.
The journalists who took part in a staff rebellion last year are starting Defector Media, a company with a podcast and a website dedicated to sports and culture.
Sounds great! But their price point is $8/month (not including annual discount). Not sure I'd pay more for snark than I do, currently, for the Times and the Post combined.Defector Media is scheduled to start a podcast next month and roll out its website in September, its founders said. Tom Ley, a former features editor at Deadspin, will be the editor in chief.
