Posted Sep 24, 2010

John Cook is leaving Yahoo! News blog The Upshot to return to Gawker. The Upshot hired Cook from Gawker this past April. “John’s a brilliant reporter, but he decided that he prefers the license Gawker gave him to add his opinions into his reporting to the scale and credibility Yahoo! News could offer,” stated Upshot editor Andrew Golis. [BusinessInsider]
