Buzzfeed, the Website That Brought You the Steele-PeePee Fake News Story About Donald Trump, Calls it Quits
Turns out that carrying water for the Democrat Party does Not, in fact, make a successful news website formula. Who knew?
April 24, 2023
Buzzfeed.com has announced that it is closing its news division permanently, effective today, 4.20.23. Staff were given notices and escorted to the door. The company plans to focus on the Huffington Post brand, which it says has more readership. On April 20, 2023, CEO Jonah Peretti announced that BuzzFeed Media would be shuttering BuzzFeed News and focusing The Huffington Post, laying off about 180 workers.
Turns out that carrying water for the Democrat Party does Not, in fact, make a successful news website formula. Who knew? Needless to say, conservatives were giddy.
"BREAKING: BuzzFeed, the digital media company which gained notoriety for publishing the now-debunked Steele Dossier, is being shut down, according to a memo from BuzzFeed Inc. CEO Jonah Peretti. The dossier was funded by @HillaryClinton campaign and used to push the discredited Russia Collusion hoax," tweeted Larry Elder.
From conservative commentator Charlie Kirk: "7 Reasons BuzzFeed News is Shutting Down (You Won't Believe #3!)
1. Turns out crummy listicles don't pay in the long run. Who knew?
2. On issues like LGBT insanity and "anti-racism," BuzzFeed said "there are not two sides" and they wouldn't even pretend to offer objective reporting.
3. According to FAIR, a left-wing media watchdog, BuzzFeed's coverage of Barack Obama was so fawning that it was "creepy" and "sycophantic."
4. They published the discredited Clinton-financed "pee tape dossier" as "news."
5. They published a hitpiece claiming President Trump ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, which Robert Mueller had to break protocol to immediately call out as false.
6. They had to fire their top tech reporter, Ryan Broderick, after it turned out he'd been plagiarizing people for his entire career.
7. Nobody wanted to read them. Good riddance.
