Jane Spencer, Fusion’s editor of digital, spoke with the Daily Intelligencer about the network’s Miami headquarters, targeting millennials and the influence that ABC and Univision have over editorial content.

Janet Mock hosts “So Popular!” on shift by MSNBC and is profiled in Bitch Magazine, discussing the pop culture moments that shaped her life.
