Buzzfeed’s Employees Make Death Threats Against President Trump
So yesterday, Buzzfeed’s editor-in-chief, Ben Smith, went onto Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News to talk about the majority of “un-biased” journalists being registered as Democrats. That then moved on to Buzzfeed’s treatment of one of their former employees, Tim Gionet (a.k.a Baked Alaska), a well known Trump supporter.
Mr. Smith claimed that Buzzfeed’s employees were treated fairly, even if they had differing opinions on politics.
Baked Alaska claims differently, as stated in Business Insider’s article. (You can read his story about his time at Buzzfeed here).
Now images have emerged (from Baked Alaska himself) of Buzzfeed’s director of social media, Maycie Thornton, saying “maybe someone will assassinate (Trump)” in a conversation with two other employees of Buzzfeed. You can read the article here.
Those involved in this conversation have since locked their Twitter accounts.
As far as I am aware, no one has been fired for this conversation yet. If Buzzfeed has any sort of integrity left in them, they should immediately fire Thornton and all those involved. After all, it is only fair.
Imagine what would happen if a writer at Breitbart or Infowars said something like this about former President Barack Obama, even if the conversation was in private. The left would be all up in arms and would demand that that writer be fired.
But since this is precious Buzzfeed we’re talking about here, the leftist utopia of clickbait articles and “valid” news source, hands off, b****.
If it wasn’t already obvious enough, I do not like the double standard given by these leftist institutions. They claim that they don’t discriminate on someone if they believe in different politics, but when the big media corporations are filled with people who crap on their viewership and admit that it is their job to control what people think, who’s going to believe them?
I’m going to believe Tim far more than anything Buzzfeed says, because let’s face it, Buzzfeed is by definition fake news. They should have stayed out of politics like MTV should have just kept playing music videos. You’re not cool, you’re not trendy. If one claimed to be discriminated upon because they supported Trump at this all left website, then I’m sure as hell going to believe it.
The worst part about all of this is that Buzzfeed has Press Credentials to the White House. Let’s repeat that again. A clickbait “teen” website, has Press Credentials, to the White house. Someone in the Obama administration thought it was a good idea to give websites like these access to the White House, and now Trump’s administration needs to revoke it and let real news take their spots.
