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.

Trending: WATCH: Omar Openly Mocks Conservative Christians From Floor of House of Representatives

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.

GAME ON: Trump Gives Bill Barr Complete Authority to Declassify Origins of Russia Probe

HERE WE GO…

John Salvatore

Published

President Trump dropped a whopper on Thursday night. Soon enough, the entire world will know the origins of “spying” on the 2016 Trump campaign. Also, how the whole Russia conspiracy fiasco became a thing. Trump tweeted out the following… “Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716322369392646?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716322369392646&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information…. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716323485073409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716323485073409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F ….Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.” @PressSec https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1131716324751826949?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131716324751826949&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhuge-trump-gives-ag-barr-complete-authority-to-declassify-info-on-russia-probe-origins%2F From Fox News: Trump claims his campaign was the victim of “spying,” though the intelligence community has insisted it acted lawfully in following leads in the Russia investigation. The president had told Fox News earlier in May that he would allow declassification “soon.” He elaborated, “I didn’t want to do it originally because I wanted to wait, because I know what they — you know I’ve seen the way they play. They play very dirty.” Last month, Barr ran into a buzz saw of criticism from Democratic lawmakers and media figures for testifying that “spying did occur” against the Trump campaign in 2016. But despite the backlash, Barr appeared to be referring to intelligence collection that already has been widely reported and confirmed. Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani weighed in: The President @realDonaldTrump made a wise decision to let AG Barr on the docunents. I don’t know for sure but I seriously doubt there’s any…

BOMBSHELL: Obama Admin’s Surveillance Of Reporters Is MUCH Worse Than Anyone Imagined

Kind of a big deal…

The Obama administration was supposed to be the most transparent in American history. Due to inept leadership, the entire country knows that that is not true. Now, it is being reported that the previous administration’s surveillance of reporters is way, way worse than anybody imagined. Here’s the scoop… From Daily Wire: On Thursday, the Columbia Journalism Review reported on the results of a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the Obama Justice Department’s attempts to crack down on leaks to reporters which reveal that the Obama administration’s actions against the press “were broader than previously known.” […] “In 2013, the Justice Department launched a brazen attack on press freedom, issuing sweeping subpoenas for the phone records of the Associated Press and several of its reporters and editors as part of a leak investigation,” the authors report. While those subpoenas have long been understood as “a massive intrusion into newsgathering operations,” they note, the recently unearthed 2014 report reveals that the subpoenas targeting AP “told only part of the story.” The Office of Professional Responsibility’s report on the Obama Justice Department’s subpoenas of AP phone records reveals that “the DOJ’s actions against the AP were broader than previously known, and that the DOJ considered subpoenaing the phone records of other news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, and ABC News,” the authors explain. The report also reveals “how narrowly the DOJ interprets the Media Guidelines, the agency’s internal rules for obtaining reporters’ data.” Former Attorney General Eric Holder is still the only cabinet-level member in American history to be held in contempt of Congress. He might actually run for president in 2020. But first, Eric wants to do away with the “undemocratic” electoral college. Classic. He tweeted: A good reform measure to support. Change the…
