14 Aug 2013 Journalist Michael Hastings, who was killed in a fiery car crash in June, reportedly had been working on several big stories including one on CIA Director John Brennan before his death. San Diego 6 News reports that Hastings had focused his latest project on Brennan, the former White House counterterrorism adviser and current CIA director. San Diego 6 News also reported on a purported email from a CIA contractor which said Brennan was behind “witch hunts of investigative journalists” and someone from the White House was targeting anyone printing material “negative to the Obama agenda.”
After a long, storied career as a college student, 22 year old Gus Wenner — son of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner — has been promoted to head up all operations at RollingStone.com.

[Wenner Media chief digital officer] David Kang and I are very pleased — and I am very proud — to announce that Gus Wenner, after leading the re-launch re-design effort for our website, will now continue by heading up the overall operations of RollingStone.com.
Hopefully this doesn’t get in the way of Wenner’s and Scout Willis’ — offspring of John McClane and Demi Moore — alternative country band, affectionately called Scout + Gus.
Don’t let them change you Gus!
