The business behind Ezra Klein's 'Project X'

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Ezra Klein's announcement last week that he was leaving The Washington Post sparked a flurry of speculation about where he'd set up shop. On Sunday night he answered the question in a blog post: "Vox is our next."

The idea is a modern news site - heavy on context and explanation - and he's partnering with Vox Media, which runs a portfolio of digital publishers, including the Verge and SB Nation.

"Today, we are better than ever at telling people what's happening, but not nearly good enough at giving them the crucial contextual information necessary to understand what's happened," Klein wrote. "Our mission is to create a site that's as good at explaining the world as it is at reporting on it."

To better understand the game plan of the venture, codenamed "Project X," I reached out to Vox CEO Jim Bankoff.

    My wife and i felt absolutely thrilled when Albert managed to finish up his survey out of the precious recommendations he gained out of your site. It's not at all simplistic just to possibly be giving freely strategies that a number of people may have been trying to sell. And now we fully understand we have you to be grateful to because of that. All the illustrations you have made, the easy web site navigation, the relationships you will make it easier to foster – it's many superb, and it's making our son and us do think that topic is excellent, which is particularly fundamental. Many thanks for the whole lot!
