Jason Binn is a Prick: The Evidence.

I hate jason binn (lowercase for emphasis of unimportantness) publisher of the shitpile of shit-awful magazines collectively known as Niche Media. I hate him nearly as much as Donny Douche Deutsch. Here's why.
1. Exhibit A: Walking west on 9th street once, whom should bound out of the lobby of the building on the corner of 9th and 5th Ave. but the five-foot nothing binn. He gets to the back door of his waiting, idling limo, but the poor doorman is a second and a half late opening the door for his Prickness. binn stands there and waits with a nasty fucking scowl on his doughy face and a 2-mile stare in his eyes and doesn't even acknowledge the presence of the doorman, forget tipping him.
2. Exhibit B: I pick up the phone at our agency one day (we're a small place. even smug, dickhead copywriters have to answer calls.) The tiniest voice I've ever heard asks for our media director. I ask him who's calling. He lowers his voice even further and says at a decibel level akin to that of beating butterfly wings: "jason binn."
I say: "I'm sorry. Excuse me?"
(HUGE SIGH OF CONTEMPT. you know the sound.) "jason binn."
It is not until after I transfer the call that I make out in my head what the hell name he was saying.

prick.

UPDATE: an anon tipster relays that binn is persona non grata at Michael's because he stiffed them on a house charge tab.

As a former receptionist I can tell you, it's only the most self important bastards who say their name in a whisper like that. They do it because you're supposed to know who they are just by the sound of their voice, and it's a terrible burden for them to be forced to identify themselves to a plebeian.

He is a prick. I'm a photographer. At a press event on Long Island, just as everything was winding down and I was lugging my 40 pounds of equimpment back to my car, Binn-hole grabbed me and started dragging me around. It had been a long day. I was exhausted. I had all my pictures of the celebrities. He wanted to me to get one more very important picture. Him with a famous actress. Like anybody cares. I already had the actress. That was the important picture.

He lead me around the event grounds for 20 minutes trying to get this stupid waste of time picture set up. Turns out she had already left and I never got the picture. Ni big loss except for the 20 minutes out of my life.

What a self-consumed prick.

I don't think even Star magazine has as much resignations and firing as that place has because of their ceo, president dictator for life or whatever the hell he calls himself. He doesnt spend a dime on anything in his personal life, just charges it to the company. He is a prick, his wife is even worse.

OMG. I LOATHE him. With good reason: http://dishalicious.blogspot.com/2006/08/southern-style-smackdown-bring-it-on.html
He is SUCH a tool. I bet if we started a blog solely devoted to his loathsome qualities we'd get a book deal.

his company either just got bought or just merged [the language of the press release referred ambiguously to a "partnership,"] with a shitpile of magazines from the only place tackier than the Binniverse, Las Vegas.

He does come across as gay and is extremely effete, but I'm pretty sure he is straight. He's too uncool to be gay.

Hahaha. This is funny. All true, a place to put all the hate! I've seen my dispicable, diapolical, discriminating share of Binnisms and his self-hating gang. He hired to his shit-eating, grey-colored, corp-wreaked brother to run his company, which sucked every last bit of remaining personality that was. Pays a handleful of dorky do-nothing pricks to make him company appear important (to those who can be convinced), and fucks over the rest of his staff BIG TIME. A bunch of word-doc-looking pages. Whoever Binn is, it needs to be noted in bold how horrid those mags are. It's a company built to TRICK and LIE to advertisers, who are the only ones supporting that cardboard, while the heads are attached like parasites so they can buy their Crate&Barrel crap. But really, who cares about the gay thing, open door for everybody on that topic.

It did just get bought - the same guy who bought OD in miami (another advertisers-wet-dream-pile-of-crap, which His Binness started). So obviously binn, his horrid wife and his horrid family (most of whom work at niche media now, lets keep shit in the family) have taken a massive payoff, along with some schmucky title stating that he will still be the head dick there forever. Clearly, what most are hoping for is that somehow, in some legal loophole, his contract will be broken and he will be shoved under a bus, much in the same way that he shoved the prior owners of Hamptons magazine under a bus when he bought out that magazine. I give it 2 years folks!

OHMIGOD!!!! Thank you Thank you!
I got tired of trying to warn people that Lucifer was among us and has set up ofices on Park Avenue South! I used to work directly for him and I have to tell you that Niche is not just about chasing the RobbReport market he is going for!

It's really to draw in talent and suck the lifeforce out therefore keeping the binnster young and cherubic forever!

Please do not get me started on his ass- instant.....I heard the Binnster has a bad back but it's prob-b/c his ass-instant is lodged perm up his arse!!!!

I went to college at the University of Cincinnati with Jason Binn (his real name is/was Binnstock, I guess he's trying to tone down his jewishness. Anyway, he was full of shit at 19 and still is today. BTW, he was kicked out of UC for stalking a co-ed. loser

I just read the NY Times article on him. Never heard of him before, so I thought I'd see what others have to say. Congrats to the copyranter for having a high Google ranking for the search "Jason Binn."

jason "binnstock" binn used to live in Miami Beach. Within three months he was the most despised person in Miami. Unfortunately, he stayed several years. Eventhough binn is only 5'3" or so put a photographer in the room and watch out. binn's sharp elbows nicked too many to name. Many times some poor man would have his date pried away by binn for a quick snap. The poor date would have that "deer in headlights look". I know a few dates who are still waiting for binn to return... Success couldn't happen to a bigger schmuck.

Jason Binnstock Binn's face must have that mushy squashed look from all the times he gets beaten up by people he has screwed over.

I just met Jason for the first time as a temporary contract employee. I can confirm that he's straight, married, with two children, and he's closer to 5'9". Although he was on the phone with someone else for the first few minutes I was interacting with him, otherwise, he was very polite and respectful. I suspect as with many of the successful businessmen I've met, he has a different persona when he's around media or in public, so I wouldn't generalize about his character.

I spoke with his assistant on the phone, Liza, and she seemed a little nervous and called me back three times to confirm an appointment, but she was really sweet.

JASON BINN... is GAY - for anyone who wants to know his sexual orientation. (I believe that he got married/family solely for the purpose of PUBLIC APPEARANCES... JASON BINN IS A FUDGE PACKER FOR SURE!) When he started out with HAMPTONS MAGAZINE many people saw him around town with his lovers. And there were many stories about his gay sexual escapades. Some of the graphic artists and others at the magazine told me so. Jason Binn is a DISGUSTING ASSHOLE, with no sense of humanity, he is dishonest, lies, cheats, steals, and remember to never do business with him, he'll fuck you over big time! I have the PROOF, and I intend to issue press releases about Jason Binn's shady business dealings very soon. Summer 2008 will not be a good year for ad revenue for HAMPTONS MAGAZINE, nor Niche Media, LLC. Advertisers need to know the truth about Jason Binn. And soon they will. Does anyone else have any Jason Binn experience stories that could be added to this blog? If so, please add them. The more truths that can be published about DISHONEST AND SHADY JASON BINN, the better!

I worked for this douchemonkey, both in Miami and a short while in NY. He's the lowest form of scum sucking low life out there. His success is due solely to his rich daddy and mommy and their many massive connections. Jerry Powers took this traitorous asshole under his wing to create Ocean Drive magazine in 1993 and effectively launched his publishing career. Then, being the slimebag shithole that Binnstock is, he made a backdoor deal with Greesnspun to buy out JP and screw over his old mentor. Don't get me wrong, not a fan of JP either but what Binn did was just downright slimy, no matter where your allegiances belong.

He is a total prick. I did some PR work for his mags unknowing how low this guy will sink. He stiffed my company out of 18k because he said we agreed to "barter for ad-space". Bullshit. 18k worth of hell, which to a small PR joint is huge. What PR company is going to advertise in his rag, anyway? The NY office's even coordinator is a lovely woman, however. I don't know how she stands it.

I also attended Univ of Cincinnati with him. He was a Pi Kappa Alpha. He was a dick. He bought his friends and constantly tried to impress with his "...my daddy..." stories. He was taken as a Pike because of his flash and he had many eating out of his hand. Why? I don't know.

Is his brother Jeffrey Binstock the one hired to run the company and referred to by an earlier commentor? e.g. He hired to his shit-eating, grey-colored, corp-wreaked brother to run his company, which sucked every last bit of remaining personality that was。
Also, I thought his brother married a chick who went to Boston College with Jason Binn. Did they share her?

He is so far out of touch that he thinks it is OK to put his brother`s own children`s pictures in the Hamptons Mag Winter 2008/09 with their names prinited. The kids are only 8 years old and they are photographed with both parents in the photo along with Jason-baby himself.These people are so out of touch that they do not realize there are wierdos out there. Also, how could a mother be so wrapped up in the lifestyle to not care about his? Looks like her name is Asako Nagakura Binstock. Wow!!!! http://www.hamptons-magazine.com/letter_pub.html
