    Maybe a few people here remember his stint on Hot97 or his how he was an early adapter of YouTube vlogs. Dude has been pretty media savvy, most of his career.

    That said, is Budden more of a pundit than a journalist? I think DJ Vlad is a perfect foil for him.

    Believe me I considered that title. But media personality is too vague. In the new media age, Cardi B would be a media personality.

    Many people consider what John Oliver does as journalism, so how is what Joe does not journalism?

    Not a journalist. n----- is a media personality. He's about as hands-on as "An Influencer" in this day and age and he's hella biased, but I find some of his podcast stuff mildly entertaining.

    This is kind of tangential but Teen Vogue has become a well-respected publication in terms of political coverage and social issues. Seriously.
