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.

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.

Democrat Joe Manchin Burns Beto, Says ‘He’s Not Taking My Guns From Me’

Boom!

Published

on

It’s very, very rare for me to ever applaud a Democrat for well, basically anything, but Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin recently delivered a message to fellow presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke that left me stunned as I launched into an immediate slow clap. Manchin stated he was no fan of the way O’Rourke fielded questions about gun rights and how he made it seem that his position was the default Democrat position. He also said that O’Rourke wasn’t going to take his guns and finished by saying, “You tell Beto that, okay?” Whew. That’s a burn. A big, nasty burn. via Daily Wire: O’Rourke promised Americans during the last Democratic presidential primary debate that “hell yes,” he’s going to take law-abiding citizens’ guns, such as AR-15s and AK-47s. “Beto’s one human being. He gave his own opinion, OK?” Sen. Manchin told Wall Street Journal reporter Lindsay Wise. “I think it was very harmful to make it look like all the Democrats.” “I can tell you one thing: [Beto O’Rourke’s] not taking my guns away from me,” Manchin added. “You tell Beto that OK?” https://twitter.com/lindsaywise/status/1174378345594806278 Manchin went on to clarify that he personally does not own an AR-15, so the buyback program wouldn’t impact him at all. https://twitter.com/frankthorp/status/1174412138569437185 This is simply amazing. A Democrat who isn’t necessarily a radical gun grabber? Stop the presses. This has to be a hoax, right? There’s no way such an individual exists. There just can’t be. This does not compute. At the end of the day, Manchin is still a Democrat, which is the last thing this country needs in the White House, but hey, at least this guy seems a bit more sensible than most folks in his party. Either way, O’Rourke isn’t taking his guns, and you know what, he’s not taking mine either.

Photos Emerge Of Super Liberal Justin Trudeau In Blackface; He Confesses To Wearing Blackface More Than Once

This guy’s career should be imploding.

Published

One of the most enigmatic political figures in the world is without a doubt Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a super liberal and progressive fellow who has swept the world with his youth, charisma, and charm. But it seems those days might be over, thanks to a bunch of party photos from 2001 that have resurfaced, showing Trudeau rocking blackface during his time at a private school where he was teaching. Ouch. Oh, but that’s not bad enough. Trudeau has actually admitted to wearing blackface on multiple occasions. via Daily Wire: “The photograph has not been previously reported. The picture was taken at an ‘Arabian Nights’-themed gala. It shows Trudeau, then the 29-year-old son of the late former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands completely darkened,” TIME reported. “The photograph appears in the 2000-2001 yearbook of West Point Grey Academy, a private day school where Trudeau was a teacher.” TIME received a copy of the yearbook earlier this month from Vancouver businessman Michael Adamson, “who was part of the West Point Grey Academy community” and “felt [the photo] should be made public.” Zita Astravas, who works in media relations in Liberal Party of Canada, which Trudeau is the leader of, confirmed that Trudeau was the person in the photo wearing blackface: “It was a photo taken while he was teaching in Vancouver, at the school’s annual dinner which had a costume theme of ‘Arabian Nights.’ He attended with friends and colleagues dressed as a character from Aladdin.” Trudeau spoke with reporters during a press conference not long after the TIME report broke, where he admitted to donning blackface more than once, then dodged questions about whether or not he would resign amid the scandal. Trudeau said, “I stand here before Canadians…
