"I took a great piece by an excellent reporter and created a version of it that was better for an online audience. This is a big part of what I do as a 'new journalist.'"

I was beginning to feel that Kashmir Hill was being unfairly maligned, but then I got to her statement and she almost immediately burns off the phrases "Immersing myself in the intersection of technology and privacy" and "sexy, tweetable title", and any and all goodwill I felt towards her vanished.
