Yeah the Editor in Chief of Buzzfeed UK is the former Deputy Editor of The Guardian. There are actual journalists doing good work there.

I'm utterly bamboozled as to how this has happened. How did the clickbait listipedia shite of Buzzfeed attract an actual serious and successful journalist, and how did he then get to turn it into a site that does news rather than ad harvesting click through driven gooseberry fool, presumably against the drive of investors and financing types?

Edit: Eugh, it's some horrible mix of both, but still mostly clickbait shite.

She. In her particular example, she left The Guardian after she didn't get the editor job and jumped ship to Buzzfeed.

They blurred out their own T-Shirt logos to make you click to see what they actually look like! It's like something out of the Onion!

You'll never guess what I saw in Poundland this morning - Donald Trump merchandise! They even had the "Make America Great Again" red caps. Loads of them at the till. For a quid.

:simper:

Clickbait listicles to investigative journalism isn't exactly a natural progression, and I stopped clicking on buzzfeed links many years ago, so apologies for the fact they're breaking actual news is surprising to me.

Investigative journalism is turning into clickbait and clickbait is turning into investigative journalism.

The world’s upside down.

You should watch the latest series of Bojack Horseman as they do a whole joke about this very thing.

There was a teacher at my old school called Mr Horseman. He ended up a crack addict. True story.

Sort of linked to the Buzzfeed story (Baked Alaska is named in the story).

Some of the response to the birth control stuff has been annoying. Don't be embarrassed about being a man, be embarrassed that the self proclaimed leaders of the free world are allowing religion to interfere with politics. I may have got this completely wrong but isn't that what the first amendment is supposed to stop?

If only there was a way to put a mirror in front of a country to show them they have more in common with the nation's and cultures they fear than other first world countries.

I would recommend finishing season 1 at least. Bojack Horseman isn't accurately judged on the first few episodes.

Then watch season 2 cos it’s even better, then 3 cos it’s ace too. Fantastic show.

Bojack himself, I like to think he shares my depressive outlook.

Special shout out to Daniel Radcliffe though, strawberry floating love his episode.

Alluding to war. The storm he talked about? I half expect to wake up one day in the very near future, days or weeks from now, to find that Trump authorized an overnight air assault on NK positions and leadership, that the DMZ is aflame, China has troops moved to its border, Russia is providing arms and intel to NK...

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)
