CNN Forced to Admit that Buzzfeed’s Malfeasance Has Maimed The Mainstream Media

Perhaps Buzzfeed should have stuck with the childish clickbait.

Mainstream Media

Friday was not a good day for the American corporate media, thanks to what should have been a predictable, bonehead move by Buzzfeed.

Many of us will remember Buzzfeed as the inventors of “clickbait”, whose ridiculous “list” articles forced readers to click-through to  dozens of pages in order to get the entire story.  This was done so that they could inflate their “clicks” and “views” on sidebar and banner advertisements in order to make big money.

Now that “clickbait” is a dirty word, (up there with “fake news”), Buzzfeed has begun to dabble in the “news”.  This hasn’t gone well, however, with the company’s latest blunder forcing even CNN to condemn them.

After Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office disputed a Friday “bombshell” BuzzFeed report, based on anonymous sources, that claimed President Donald Trump ordered his then-personal lawyer Michael Cohen to lie about a proposed Trump Tower project in Russia, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said BuzzFeed’s disputed story “reinforces” the belief that many Americans have that the media “are a bunch of leftists liars” who are willing to lie to “get” Trump.

“This is a bad day for the news media. Let’s not kid ourselves,” Toobin said on CNN. “The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and they’re willing to lie to do it.”

As far as CNN and Toobin are concerned, a great many readers here will tell them that they are late to the party; the mainstream media has been spiraling out of control for years, and the censorship of companies such as Twitter and Google are only perpetuating the problem.

Perhaps Buzzfeed should have stuck with the childish clickbait.

Well, it looks like we can file this report under DUUUUUHHHHHH!!! From The Daily Wire: Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels slammed President Joe Biden during a Fox News interview this week for the ongoing crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that Biden’s reversal of the last administration’s policies have caused a serious problem on the border. “When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources, and it stopped construction on our border,” Dannels said. “As a result of that, one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there. It’s [opened up] the border. It opened up the message that it’s okay to come in this country. This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is it’s forcing us back to 2019, where we had the largest what I call crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL6Hqonas7k And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/brandonwenerd/status/1368026400456732674 https://twitter.com/govkristinoem/status/1367944560580648967 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1368046181721444352 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1368037566684033027
