BuzzFeed (stylized as BUZZFeeD) is an American online internet and entertainment media company based in New York City.

The firm is a social news and entertainment company with a focus on digital media. BuzzFeed was founded in 2006 as a viral lab focusing on tracking viral content, by Jonah Peretti and John S. Johnson III. Kenneth Lerer, co-founder, and chairman of The Huffington Post, started as a co-founder and investor in BuzzFeed and is now the executive chairman as well. Originally known for online quizzes, "listicles", and pop culture articles, the company has grown into a global media and technology company providing coverage on a variety of topics including politics, DIY, animals, and business. In late 2011, Ben Smith of Politico was hired as editor-in-chief to expand the site into serious journalism, long-form journalism, and reportage.

Why It Sucks

  1. Massive amounts of clickbait, especially on Facebook.
    • Ironically enough, they claim they don't use clickbait, but they indeed do. [1]
  2. Heavily panders towards Social Justice Warriors.
  3. Biased news articles.
  4. Really racist articles such as "Why White People Shouldn't Be Allowed to Name Kids", that basically state that whites are a plague to the planet.
  5. Pointless listicles, as much of it, is more or less the same as others.
  6. Some articles are plagiarized from other news sites.
  7. They also steal ideas from YouTube creators, such as Jaclyn Glenn, as well.
  8. Sometimes they even steal articles, as explained here.
  9. Repetitive content.
  10. Badly sourced and often inaccurate. This is pointed out by fact check websites.
  11. They treat their employees poorly and exploits them heavily.
  12. They report a lot of news articles as "fake" if they can't find any "interesting" news that is happening.
  13. Unappealing and cringy style of covering topics such as the news.
  14. Much like with Vice and Gawker, some articles contain inappropriate content, an unnecessary amount of foul language, and misplaced information.
  15. Terrible sense of humor that comes off as corny and dull.
  16. They have a series that creates pointless and unnecessary life hacks, like in 5 Minute Crafts.
  17. Points out the obvious in images for subjects that you already know.
  18. The images itself are even stolen without giving the proper credit to the original creators or photographers.
  19. Many staff members often leave due to the management and treatment of their employees.
  20. They once bashed Taylor Swift, not because of her edginess, but because of her "unwillingness to address whiteness".
  21. Buzzfeed has tried to go after the Super Chat system on YouTube, claiming that it monetizes hate and racism.
  22. Targets readers with anti-Trump ads without disclosure.
  23. As a result of spreading fake news, they are being sued by a Russian tech guru.
  24. They defended Jessica Price after she was fired for her toxic behavior.
  25. They made outlandish claims such as "watching the Trump debate causes PTSD".
  26. They have a strange interest in menstruation, which is disgusting.
  27. Heavily panders towards nostalgia.
  28. A long history of smearing and framing people especially anti-SJWs in a dishonest way.
  29. They made an awful SJW channel for Spanish audiences, called Buzzfeed Lola.
  30. Very embarrassing and weird quizzes that make no sense, such as This Alphabet Food Test Will Reveal Your Future Boyfriend.
  31. Buzzfeed reporter Kate Arthur deliberately smeared Tucker Carlson using a photo of the Fox News anchor with a “sex worker.”
  32. Buzzfeed suffered a legal setback in a federal court in Miami on Tuesday in its attempt to fight a defamation lawsuit over its publication of the infamous, and uncorroborated, Russia “dossier” on President Donald Trump in 2018.
  33. They said That There's some Terrible Arts, their Joke Arts! (Proof!)

It's hard to take their news articles seriously when they have pages about what kind of potato you are.
