Well, here we are. It’s been two years of fighting, over 100,000 people are dead, there are no signs of this war ending, and a week ago I used chemical weapons on my own people. If you don’t do anything about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. If you do something about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. Morally speaking, you’re on the hook for those deaths no matter how you look at it.

So, it’s your move, America. What’s it going to be?

"Bashar al-Assad," writing for The Onion, in an article titled "So, What’s It Going To Be?

This is how you get a job at Buzzfeed: Stand in front of the office, wear your resume sandwich-board-style.

Some of the most successful recent start-ups are basically ersatz tabloid journalism,” Robert Thomson, the chief of the new publishing division, which will retain the News Corp name, told FT. “If we can’t do it better than they can, then we’re not as good as we think we are.
News Corp to take on BuzzFeed

Pretty sure “ersatz tabloid journalism” is like “artisanal Fox News,” if you think about it.

Michael Hastings raised concerns about FBI investigation before his death; FBI denies

  • claim In the days since the death of Buzzfeed reporter Michael Hastings, claims have surfaced that the reporter was concerned he was being investigated by the FBI, including from his own editor at Buzzfeed, Ben Smith. “Before his death, Michael told a number of his friends and colleagues that he was concerned that he was under investigation,” Smith told New York magazine. The claims gained extra scrutiny after a friend of his produced an email sent from Hastings raising concerns about an investigation, sent less than a day before his death.
  • denial Despite this, the FBI flatly denies such claims. “At no time was Michael Hastings under investigation by the FBI,” spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said in a statement. Despite this, concerns have not died down as Hastings hinted that he was working on a story, related to the NSA scandal, which may have had significant implications. Among the sources Hastings was reportedly planning to talk to for upcoming stories included Anonymous-tied activist Barrett Brown and Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite who had been mixed up in the David Petraeus case. source

Mainly you really have to love writing and reporting. Like it’s more important to you than anything else in your life—family, friends, social life, whatever.
Buzzfeed reporter Michael Hastings • Offering advice to young journalists in a Reddit thread last year. Hastings, 33, died in a car crash on Tuesday morning. Despite his young age, he left a fairly significant mark on the journalism world, scoring a 2010 Rolling Stone interview with Gen. Stanley McChrystal in which the then-Commander of U.S. and NATO Coalition Forces in Afghanistan spoke negatively of White House staff. Hastings’ report sent shockwaves through Washington, leading to McChrystal’s firing before the report was even officially published. While McChrystal was eventually cleared of wrongdoing in the case, Rolling Stone stood behind Hastings’ article. Hastings’ death led many journalists to leave statements of remorse in the wake of the news, including his editor, Ben Smith, who said in a statement that “He wrote stories that would otherwise have gone unwritten, and without him there are great stories that will go untold.” (reddit thread via Twitter user @nbj914)

Some moron thinks Buzzfeed owes him $3.6M for using this photo on their site. 

I need to take more terrible photos that Buzzfeed is interested in more often, apparently.
