One year ago, BuzzFeed News didn’t have an investigations team, but now we have 11 members and we’re growing. I sent a version of this note to our team over the holidays and then was asked to post it publicly. I hope it gives you a sense of what we’re building.
A con man who snagged an Ebola cleanup contract and a pig farmer who turned to arms dealing. A warehouse empire and laws that imprison battered women. A recluse at the heart of a Hollywood scandal and a coal miner dead from black lung. The year in Buzzfeed News investigations.
