2006 Founded by Jonah Peretti & John Johnson III

2011 Ben Smith hired as editor-in-chief

2014 BuzzFeed found unreliable by majority regardless of politics (PEW)

2017 BuzzFeed hired Jason Leopold

2017 BuzzFeed published Steele Dossier

2019 Cohen leak #BuzzKill
2006 Leopold reported Karl Rove had been indicted by the grand jury investigating the Plame affair. Rove denied the story, calling it "a complete fabrication"

His source was a well trusted FBI agent.

Jason is a self described junkie.

Initially it was hard core drugs but now it's "scoops" from Intel/military whistleblowers & FOIA requests.

How this guy became an investigative journo working within CIA & GITMO circles is baffling.

He's a former addict with clear temperament concerns, criminal history, and a history of being flat wrong.
He discusses most of this in his own memoir.

Seems he still can't help him self from either believing a burnt source or just flat out concocting the entire #FakeNews story.
CEO Jonah Perretti is a known Marxist

Not surprised his company allows these nearly treasonous articles to be spread

He's obsessed with keeping low IQ zombies hungry for his viral click bait

Basically he's the El Chapo of social media
Nice summary here of how BuzzFeed was a tentacle of the Obama WH (99% uncritical of BHO).

Imagine if Trump had six months of 90% uncritical coverage. 💰🤑 🇺🇲

BuzzFeed should be considered a component of the DNC.

They worked with the Dems & cut ties with the RNC & Trump over his "rhetoric" which they compared to "cigarette ads."

Yale grad Ben Smith is the editor who published the debunked Steele Dossier. His daddy was an associate judge in NY until 2014 and practiced at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
Paul Weiss is also where Chuck Schumer's lesser known brother Robert happens to work.

It's a big firm but a small world I suppose.

In the thread I linked above re: Robert Schumer it goes on a few more tweets leading right back to BuzzFeed..

Coincidence surely.
EYEBEAM is something that could be it's own thread.

Open Society & MacArthur Foundation

(Soros funded)

The other guy behind BuzzPeed is co-founder & Chairman Ken Lerer. He hosted a DNC fundraiser in his NYC home in 2016.

Obama was the headliner.
Clearly he is a another big player for the DNC.

He can be found listed with a number of known Clinton agents below.

Faith Gay, Barry Diller, etc.

To repeat BuzzFear should be considered part of the DNC.
