Former Buzzfeed Writer Lambasts Sinking Company with HILARIOUS Quiz

Talk about SALTY. This former employee just ROASTED Buzzfeed in ways that no one else could.

Published

Buzzfeed

Buzzfeed, once the nation’s premiere source of absurd clickbait lists, has attempted to parlay their trashy-attention into something more substantial by way of pseudo-journalism.

It isn’t working.  Not in the least.

Their first flub was getting involved in the infamous Steel Dossier fiasco from the start, purporting that the President of the United States was compromised by Russia over his unsanitary and frankly strange preference of activities while in the company of prostitutes in Moscow.

Of course, nothing in this dossier has ever been verified, nor is there really any hope whatsoever of that chancing.  Still, the left clings to the gibberish as though it is gospel.

Then Buzzfeed shot themselves in the figurative foot with the metaphorical noose already around their neck by making wild claims regarding President Trump…again.

This hilarity was too much for one former employee of the doomed media flash-in-the-pan, who has dissed his former employer in a creative way.

As BuzzFeed continues to face backlash for laying off roughly 200 employees, an ex-writer weaponized the company’s famed quizzes against them and published a “Do You Still Have A Job At BuzzFeed?” questionnaire on the site today.

The quiz writer, Jason Sweeten, was laid off by BuzzFeed in the summer of last year and cited his negative experiences in a quiz he wrote for BuzzFeed Community — an unedited vertical for the site that allows anyone to create a post.

“What’s your department?” Read one of the first questions, with answers that include “Editorial,” “Business,” “Technology,” and “For the last two years I’ve done nothing but write personality quizzes. My boss assured me that I could try other things within the department, but she was just laid off.”

Then, Sweeten went for the jugular:

Another question asks Buzzfeed staffers to bring “a dog to the office” amid the firings — an offer that the site’s CEO Jonah Peretti actually made to staffers concerned about layoffs — but Sweeten’s answer is just a demand for the company to “pay for my unused PTO.” (Buzzfeed has withheld earned paid time off from many of their laid-off employees.)

In response to Buzzfeed withholding PTO, hundreds of current Buzzfeed staffers signed a letter demanding management honor the earned vacation days for laid-off employees. The firings were also controversially “staggered,” meaning BuzzFeed started some of the cuts last week but will continue to make them in the next couple of days — leaving many in employment limbo.

The quiz’s kicker, written in Buzzfeed’s signature happy-go-lucky style, asks readers to “pick a color!” Sweeten’s listed responses include “Red,” “Blue,” “Green,” and “Unionize your media company.”

All we can hope now is that Buzzfeed doesn’t get hit too hard with the door on their way out.

Clandestine Cabal Seeks to Hide Info in Jeffrey Epstein Case

Speculation over the identities of the concerned parties has run rampant online, given how well connected Epstein is.

Jeffrey Epstein

In the pantheon of political pop culture, Jefferey Epstein is a bit of a lightning rod of controversy…as he should be. Epstein, who has already settled a lawsuit alleging him of sexually trafficking underage girls, is now fighting to keep some of the secrets of that case under wraps after an earlier adjudication was set to unseal the files. Epstein, who has been linked to some of America’s most powerful politicians and personalities, now has some reinforcements in his quest to keep his crimes quiet. Two mystery litigants citing privacy concerns are making a last-ditch bid to keep secret some details in a lawsuit stemming from wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein’s history of paying underage girls for sex. Just prior to a court-imposed deadline Tuesday, two anonymous individuals surfaced to object to the unsealing of a key lower-court ruling in the case, as well as various submissions by the parties. Both people filed their complaints in the New York-based 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, which is overseeing the case. The two people said they could face unwarranted speculation and embarrassment if the court makes public records from the suit, in which Virginia Giuffre, an alleged Epstein victim, accused longtime Epstein friend Ghislaine Maxwell of engaging in sex trafficking by facilitating his sexual encounters with teenage girls. Maxwell has denied the charges. Speculation over the identities of the concerned parties has run rampant online, given how well connected Epstein is. [Bill] Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States, was friends with Epstein and often flew on his plane and visited him on his island. Epstein donated to the Clinton Foundation and various Democratic causes and candidates. However, there has been no evidence that he was involved with underage sex activities. [Kenneth Starr is a]…former federal judge, U.S. solicitor general and independent…

Reports Out of Camp Biden Say A Flag-Burning Running Mate is In The Works

The democratic frontrunner hasn’t even announced his candidacy yet.

Joe Biden

Joe Biden is an odd bird, there’s no doubt about it, but that hasn’t stopped the democrats from being concerned over his physical and fiscal attributes on the eve of his long-coming 2020 presidential announcement. Biden, who has not officially announced, allowed a well-calculated “slip of the tongue” to be a barometer for himself last week should he go through with it.  And with a nearly complete staff underneath him, it’s really a matter of “when” and not “if” we find ourselves with Biden on the ballot. Now, in an oddly early bit of political chess, Biden’s “not yet campaign” is the source of a report that has the former Vice President eyeing up a controversial VP pick of his own. Advisers for former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign-in-waiting are debating whether to name failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as his running mate, a Thursday report says. According to Axios, Biden aides believe adding Abrams to the ticket would send a strong signal to voters that he’s not “just another old white guy.” The outlet said Team Biden isn’t going all-in on picking the rising progressive star just yet, worrying that the move could be received as a “gimmick” and open the former Vice President up to a new line of attacks. The move comes at a time in which the democratic party polling shows that rich, old, white men are the most popular candidates that they have so far. Abrams has long been chastised by patriotic Americans for her involvement in a particular protest. Stacey Abrams on Tuesday defended her presence at a 1992 burning of a Georgia state flag, which contained the Confederate battle flag design, saying at a gubernatorial debate, “I’m a very proud Georgian.” “Twenty-six years ago as a college freshman, I along with many other Georgians — including…
