Read the content.

Now imagine it was reported verbatim by the New York Times or whatever.

Does it seem legit? It's probably fine.

if iirc you specifically made fun of me for pointing out her cough.(and you were wrong).

I am pretty sure you do not recall correctly and if you had said 'pneumonia' doubt anyone would have said anything because that falls into the 'who cares' category of illnesses.

It was the 'epipen' and 'seizures' that we jumped on, because that shit was hilarious.

Not sure why Buzzfeed News is dismissed so offhandedly. Sure they're the same company that makes quizzes so you can find out which Harry Potter house your dog belongs in, but their journalists are putting out some very good stories.

No, seriously now - BuzzFeed was never a news source and them trying to become one isn't going to happen this quickly, especially since their 'journalists' and writers in general are known to not only provide shitty clickbait content, but have no journalistic integrity - they don't credit sources, they reuse unoriginal content and they have a very clear bias towards one side. Their is no editorial point of view - they can have articles that conflict which each other written by different people on the same page.

BuzzFeed operated for years as a click farm, so until they stop they're not any more reliable than BreitBart.

Breitbart? Good stories?

Their shit just fits a preconceived narrative of political prescriptions so much so they sometimes make up stories.

"I do not want to miss a good chance of getting us a slice of this magnificent African cake."

"Evangelize the n------ so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against the restraints they are undergoing. Recite every day - "happy are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for them." Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine months of submission to work freely for us."

Good journalism seems to be pretty subjective. They both are writing to fit a narrative that their target demographic enjoys, since targeting their coverage in this way brings them more ad-revenue. Buzzfeed is more centrist than Breitbart, so they tailor their stories to a more centered (center-left) position.

As far as quality goes, I guess it depends if you're comparing the curated Buzzfeed news versus the HuffPo style "contributor" model. The latter is extremely shite. The former isn't as bad of a dumpster-fire. So when talking about "Buzzfeed News" it depends on if you're averaging those two values or not, imo.

HuffPo is indeed hot garbage. Especially their "voices" section which I believe is what Syrup is referring to.

Throughout the last while, there has been the occasioanal piece of what appears to be good investigative journalism from Buzzfeed. It pains me to say that, I hope you're happy Syrup.

We can have a conversation about the "grr SJW" stories and slants on things, but thats unrelated. It feels pretty disingenuous to write off everything a site produces this way. And yes, I could say the same about Breitbart. I can't see myself ever needing to say that, but all things are possible.

Buzzfeed has on the payroll some very good mainstream political reporters. If one disagrees all one has to do is point out inaccuracies in their reporting. If one cannot not do that I would suggest shutting up. Just a suggestion though.

Breitbart nor Buzzfeed has 'good stories' - that was my point. It's also not just about 'feminism' and 'sjw' bullshit as others have pointed out - it's about how buzzfeed runs as a company. Having a few good journalists doesn't mean that they suddenly have journalistic integrity, and editorial point of view or that they don't farm clicks.

Buzzfeed often uses loaded words and implications, and its sources are questionable multiple times. All you need to do is look that shit up.
