I assume Buzzfeed is a social news outlet. I've never been to the site. I have been hearing a lot about it recently and not in a good way.

Then this is brought to my attention.

Again, back to fake news, rumors, no facts and just saying what you want to say, with the idea, let the audience determine if it's real or factual. WHAT!

BuzzFeed editor calls for ‘new rules’ to cover Trump administration

BuzzFeed News made headlines earlier this month for publishing an unverified dossier about alleged connections between President Donald Trump and Russia, and according to the website’s editor, that might be the new standard for reporting on this White House.

In a New York Times editorial posted Monday, BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith called for “new rules” to be established in journalism that support sometimes publishing “unverified information in a transparent way.”
