They not only had to delay the launch of their IPO, they’re hemorrhaging jobs just to restructure.
They’re the fakest of the Fake News. And they’re paying a price.
Remember that now-infamous fake Russian Dossier? It was widely known to the various outlets, but most reasonably respectable outlets wouldn’t touch it, lest citing it damage their own credibility.
Enter CNN. They were quite happy to bring the ridiculously salacious (and now-discredited) Dossier into the public conversation. Which gave Buzzfeed the excuse they needed to publish it.
It was a bit of a change from ‘Choose Some Hipster Things And We’ll Tell You Your Dominant Personality Trait’ or ’17 Things You Should Definitely Know About Your Vagina’ (with the subline that there is no such thing as a ‘normal’ looking vagina).
(Those are both real Buzzfeed titles, by the way.)
So, like the hard-hitting journalists that they are, Buzzfeed went for the cheap clicks. After all, urinating prostitutes? They may not have had anything to do with anyone on Trump’s team, but they aren’t such a big departure from the stupid crap Buzzfeed normally covers. Fits right in there with ‘Which Emoji are you?’ (Also a real title.)
Now for some reason, they’ve run into money trouble. As in, laying off 8% of their US workforce kind of money trouble.
And that’s got to really suck for a company that was gearing up for an Initial Public Offering.
BuzzFeed is laying off 100 employees and reorganizing its advertising sales and business operations. You’ll remember WSJ reported earlier this month that BuzzFeed was on pace to miss this year’s revenue target by some 15% to 20%

Another Trump-hating group — ESPN is facing 150 layoffs.
But Buzzfeed, ESPN and so many other ‘media outlets’ don’t mind doubling down again and again on their hard-left politics.
Should someone remind them about that popular ‘definition of insanity’?
We could tell them, but it’s not like they’d listen to us anyway.
One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Ladies, get yours here.
Bros, click here, instead.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
