BuzzFeed cut 15% of its staff, and some critics are now taking shots at CEO Jonah Peretti's strategy

BuzzFeed just laid off 15% of its staff, including its first big cuts in its news division, BuzzFeed News. The cuts were a reckoning for a company that seemed like it had cracked the code and figured out how to support high-quality, online journalism with advertising. Now, critics are blaming CEO Jonah Peretti, saying that in his quest to make a 21st-century journalism company, he didn't recognize the limitations of the business model for news. Last month, 43 staffers at BuzzFeed News, the ne...

When teen defies anti-vax parents and gets shots, his mom says it's a "slap in the face"

A teen's Reddit post went viral when he asked the public how he could get vaccinated. "My parents are kind of stupid and don't believe in vaccines. Now that I'm 18, where do I go to get vaccinated? Can I get vaccinated at my age?" The Ohio high school student, Ethan Lindenberger, says he had just gotten his driver's license and a car, and had some money, and was ready to do defy his parents. "It's stupid and I've had countless arguments over the topic. But, because of their beliefs I've never be...

People are praising Jeff Bezos and calling him a 'genius' after he slammed the National Enquirer and accused them of blackmail in a shocking blog post (AMZN)

In an extraordinary blog post on Thursday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the National Enquirer and its parent company AMI& threatened to publish intimate personal photos of the billionaire tech exec. According to Bezos, AMI allegedly threatened to publish the photos, unless he stopped his investigation into how they leaked — and unless he made a statement disavowing that the original National Enquirer investigation into his alleged affair was politically motivated. Bezos said that he refuses to ...

What to Do Before and After Being Laid Off

It’s been a brutal few weeks in media, as BuzzFeed, the Huffington Post, Vice, Gannett and McClatchy laid off thousands of workers.

Gannett turns down hedge fund-backed Digital First Media

By Tali Arbel, The Associated Press The publisher of USA Today and dozens of other newspapers said no to a hedge-fund backed media group with a reputation for slashing jobs, but the buyout fight may not be over. Gannett on Monday said its board has unanimously rejected an unsolicited $1.36 billion buyout from MNG Enterprises , better known as Digital First Media. Digital First then said that it might nominate new Gannett board directors to consider its offer. The board decided the $12 per share ...

Four reporters say their news organizations won't let them use the term "racist"

Huffington Post got four reporters on the record (albeit anonymously) to say their editors replace terms like "racist" and "racism" with euphemisms. I was at a media organization that wouldn’t allow me to use “racist” or “bigot” when referring to derogatory comments that Donald Trump made or to his character. Instead, we were told to use mundane euphemisms like “inappropriate” and “discriminatory statements” or descriptive phrases like “his comments caused a stir online” and “drew anger and push...

If tech companies are hurting journalism, can they also help save it?

As professions go, journalism isn’t exactly known for its stability. The last half of January only served to highlight this, with dramatic layoffs across several top-tier digital publications, including Vice, Buzzfeed News, and the Huffington Post. But buried under a heaping pile of pink slips and P45s was a rare spot of good news. The business wing of the Raspberry Pi foundation today announced the acquisition of two print tech magazines formerly belonging to the UK’s Dennis Publishing, namely ...

Climate change and the polar vortex to blame for unpredictable weather

Americans in the upper Midwest have been dealing with brutally cold temperatures as low as 35 degrees (Fahrenheit) below zero and wind chills near 60 below this week. At the same time, the North Pole is in a heat wave with temperatures 25 degrees warmer than normal, and the culprit for this upside-down weather pattern is both the polar vortex and climate change. Just because millions of Americans are dealing with this potentially life-threatening cold blast doesn’t mean global warming is a hoax...

What Time Is the Super Bowl? (According to a Theoretical Physicist)

Ever since the Huffington Post struck SEO gold in 2011 with their post about what time the Super Bowl started, pretty much every online publication now runs a similar article in an attempt to squeeze some of Google’s juice into their revenue stream. My “attempt” from last year: What Time Isn’t the Super Bowl? For this year’s contest, Sports Illustrated decided to ask theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli and author of The Order of Time his thoughts on time and Super Bowls. 6:30 p.m. is the time ...

Innocent and overworked Starbucks employees may pay the ultimate price for former CEO Howard Schultz’s announcement that he’s considering launching an independent bid for President. According to a Wednesday Huffington Post report, Starbucks’ current management sent employees directives on how to deal with customers who might be interested in, angry about or eager to debate about Schultz’s presidential plans.

Acid Testing the Revival of Psychic TV and Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth

None Over the past ten years, an arcane impulse has slowly re-emerged in underground music. Formerly content to survive on the fringes of various dark subcultures (and mostly in the basements of self-anointed purists), the occult and its signifiers—spanning design, text, and sonic elements—are now crawling out of the depths of the musical imagination, and reclaiming territory once ceded. This stygian urge, both ideological and artistic, is subtler than just love of the abject, and more purposef...

Why Do Entrepreneurs Need to Make Health & Wellness a Priority?

By Dr. Sean Daneshmand Have you noticed how balanced and grounded successful people are? I don’t mean that guy you know that drops stacks of cash at the casino and rides around in a sports car – I mean really successful people, like Billionaire successful. What sets these people apart is not how much they spend or how much partying they do, in fact, when you look at it more closely, it’s more interesting that they have the money but don’t really have the urge to indulge all the time. These peopl...

How Amazon's 'Homecoming: S1' Reveals Toxic White Womanhood

None The Amazon series Homecoming: Season 1 has so far received positive reviews that focus on the show's exploration of corporate power and government bureaucracy, a "chilling portrait of corporate American greed" as Matthew Jacobs writes in Huffington Post. However, what's not getting the attention it needs is how the more obvious systems of corrupt corporate, military, and government power are fueled in the show by the less obvious system of white supremacy. While Homecoming is not explicit...

Passenger confronts Republican Congressman sitting in first class on plane during government shutdown

While 57,000 TSA employees are expected to work without pay during the government shutdown, Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), a government worker himself, thinks it's just dandy to travel first class. While sitting in his plush seat on a flight from Chicago to Washinton, D.C., a fellow traveler confronted him. “Congressman, do you think it’s appropriate to fly first class while 57 TSA agents aren’t being paid?”" Davis is as silent as a church mouse. “Taking that as a yes...Taxpayers paid for this flig...

An Arizona politician wants to fund the border wall by levying a tax on citizens who watch pornography

An Arizona lawmaker has introduced legislation to fund the border wall by taxing residents to access pornographic material on their devices.  The bill would charge Arizona residents a $20 fee to obtain access to pornographic material. The proceeds would go into a fund named after Sen. John McCain to pay for a border wall, services for trafficking victims, and other uses.  Free speech advocates argue, however, that taxing content protected by the First Amendment is unconstitutional.  As the fe...

5 Ways to Build Your Business’s Brand

By Helen Cartright Many, many years ago a brand was defined by a logo, name, slogan or design that distinguished itself from other brands. Today, branding is a lot more complex and more important than ever. Why? Well, with Australia’s boom in small businesses (an increase of 3.1 per cent in 2017) you want your business to stand out among competitors. You can’t do this by simply driving leads. Potential customers are not going to know who you are so how can they trust you? Today, people are doing...

All We Did Was Survive: The State of the Pro-Life Movement Under President Trump

ABSTRACT: The pro-life movement in America seemed in dire straits in 2016, with losses on almost every front. Donald Trump’s surprising win appears to have stalled the abortion juggernaut. An escape, however, is not a triumph. Dunkirk was not Normandy. Abortion is here to stay as long as millions of young Christians are uninformed, unequipped, and unconcerned. We asked Scott Klusendorf, president of Life Training Institute, to give a state of the movement on the pro-life cause under t...

'I Got Death Threats For Writing a Bad Review of Aquaman'

The Huffington Post recently published a post by one of the 300 members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association -- and a contributing writer to Variety. I saw "Aquaman" on a brisk Monday morning in December. Though I appreciated that star Jason Momoa didn't take himself too seriously while playing an underwater superhero, the glut of CGI effects distracted me from the story. Which was hollow and nonsensical anyway. As with every movie I watch -- up to four a week, hundreds a year -- I expresse...

Two GOP reps meet racist troll Chuck Johnson 'to discuss genetic testing and DNA'

Two GOP congressmen met with noted white supremacist Chuck Johnson about “genetic testing and DNA,” then deny knowing he's a white supremacist.
