Nate's Deal vs Ezra's

Taegan Goddard notes:

What's most interesting about Nate's deal with the New York Times (to me, at least) is that he was not really "hired." Instead, it's a license deal where he continues to own and control the content and everything reverts back to him if he doesn't renew. It's the same deal you cut with Atlantic Media and I cut with CQ-Roll Call.

From a business sense, this is very different than the Washington Post hiring Ezra Klein and Dave Weigel. It could be a new model for bloggers that mimics television production.
