Buzzfeed Reports About Strike Forces Tracking Down Illegal Guns

"In Buzzfeed. And Buzzfeed wasn't the first to really sort of uncover what took place here, but it's written the most comprehensive peace and moreover, It is a left wing website funded by leftists. And so it's uniquely interesting. That this piece appears there. But the bottom line is I want you to hear this. I want you to know this. And as a reminder the attorney general the United States is sending out. Strike force is I think they come, fanning them out across the country to try and track down illegal guns. Don't trust them. I would never have said that a few years ago ever Don't trust them under this attorney general, I don't trust them under the Into the individuals who Biden's appointed the Department of Justice. I don't trust them because of buying in this White House I've seen And they've let black lives matter and antifa. And these other Marx's violent organizations off the hook. While they're searching the country for people who just trespassed on the Capitol lawn. It didn't even breach the building. And trying to charge them and throw them in prison. I don't trust them. It's a sad day, but it's true.

What's the Fight Over Returning to the Office Really About?

"Rawlings. This is the big story. Charlie wars l. is a journalist who writes about technology the media and politics. He's previously worked for the new york times opinion and buzzfeed news right now. He pens a newsletter called galaxy brain. Which you can find on sub stack. Hey charlie hey thanks for having me. You're very welcome I thought that your most recent newsletter was perhaps one of the more insightful takes on return to office and the discussion around that that i've seen so maybe you could start us off by defining spontaneous. Collaboration what is it. And why is it such a buzzword now and over the next few months sure This spontaneous collaboration were. I think i was calling it sort of tongue in cheek. The spontaneous encounter theory is. Is this idea that a big part of the sort of the secret sauce of productivity and innovation in companies in business in general comes from these encounters that happened in the office. That are not planned. Another word for them. It's like the water cooler moment right. It's that you know you are taking a break getting up from your desk you bump into somebody have a random conversation and all of a sudden someone has an idea And something gets hatched. And you know it's this this idea that you know you can't plan for it but because of that What you get is is some you know magical. Interaction that leads to You know some genius innovation and you know this is something that is real to some extent like i don't i don't think we can We can totally denounce that. I've had some good spontaneous encounters in offices in my lifetime that have led to fund things or interesting things. But i think it's very very overvalued in our conversations about how the office really works. Do we

Are Black Creators Really on ‘Strike’ From TikTok?

"According to my best and friend of the pod taylor law from the new york times of twenty one year old content creator and dancer posted a fake out. Dance on tiktok. His name is eric. Lewis or louis. I'm not sure how he pronounces it in the video. He looks like he's about to dance to Medicine the stallion one of my favorites New single Thought algebra even at that and when the beat drops he basically flipped the bird and says to the camera psych. You don't know what psych means that means like I trust you in Slang from the eighties and he basically puts a caption that says. This app would be nothing without b. l. k. People black people. The video has racked up over one hundred. Twenty eight thousand likes on tick tock And it went viral on twitter. According to laurenz. And i'm going to quote here. Some tweets suggests that black raiders on tiktok had seemingly agreed not to choreograph a dance to the song which would force non black users to come up with dances on their own and prove how essential black raiders are to the platform in a later. Tiktok eric. the person who promoted this video sad black folks have always had to galvanize and riot and protest to get their voices heard that same dynamic is displayed on tiktok. Said we're being forced to collectively protest a user deja on twitter Said that black creators are telling each other to not make a dance to the new megan the samsung to prove they are the backbone of the app another quote. We are being exploited. And that's the core issue. Black folks have had in terms of labor. Mr lewis or louis. Sorry if i'm pronouncing correctly. These millions of likes. That should all translate to something. How do we get real money. Power and proper compensation reserve and the tweet from taylor today to frame this as an issue around dance credits misses the point. It's about so much more and speaks to broader issues of labor in the creator economy. We are being exploited. And that's a core issue. Black folks have always had in terms of labor. Eric said

Starbucks Considers Leaving Facebook Amid Deluge of Hateful Comments on Posts

"Hitters mentioned. So at number five, Starbucks has is weighing the option of quitting Facebook over hateful comments. And so they're reportedly weighing whether or not to leave Facebook completely and forever over a slew of hateful comments that they've gotten in response to post on their platform. Buzzfeed obtained an internal Facebook discussion in which employees wrote that Starbucks may take may take down its Facebook page, which has more than 36 million followers, by the way, because the company is so frustrated by the negative comments they get when they post with regards to social issues or their mission and values at work. Whether it's black lives matter, or LGBT Q or sustainability, climate change. They get overwhelmed by negative and insensitive hate speech. So Starbucks has struggled to moderate these responses and their posts are now just they're unable to disable their comments on the page, which makes it really hard to hide any of this negativity. So if Starbucks pulls their Facebook page, that's I mean they're $135 billion company. They'd be among the largest companies to ever leave Facebook and Starbucks would be among the biggest into, including space X and Tesla, which Elon Musk removed from both of his companies from Facebook in 2018, so the companies have kept their instagram accounts active. Which is it alone Facebook, But they never went back to the

How Jenny Lorenzo Became the Internets Favorite Cuban Abuela

"Jenny. I'm almost have to admit not accustomed to seeing you as jenny. nobody else. Is that what you look like. I want to take a listen to the first video that you ever did. Hold up today. Go to pick up one three gilead of better sex for three going on meeting me gomez day metal supplement. Okay iressa on. And off for the love of god. So here's what's interesting. It's the first video that willa was ever featured in for buzzfeed but she insisted prior channel of mine called aggressive comex and a boiler was first introduced as a superhero Because this was a channel that was predominantly white male audience. I talked about video games and comic books and movies. Sifi strictly me being nerd and then at some point i did a movie review of the film kick ass and me and my writing partner for the show was to the cuban well because he knew that i kind of already did that sort of thing and so it was the same terrible wig that you do see in that buzzfeed video i think i through like baby powder on it to make gray and she had like this painted red mask over her eyes with like a fly swatter as were weapon and then eventually it made no sense for the channel. But you can tell that. I yearned to make this sort of content. It is interesting that something that is as big as a bulla takes that many iterations to get there like. I think there's a lesson in there for any creative. That is not necessarily that. The opening gambit is where you land now never being a nerd is as much a part of your identity and culture as being cuban. It seems did you see characters on tv or in media. Who has a latino nerd you identified with not really wasn't until recently that i started seeing that representation especially in a show like no spooky because these are a bunch of latino gods that are into the macab and they're a bunch of nerds and outsiders because that's a big part of me to what most approximated your own experience i would say. A lot of that was in black television. You see urkel you see. Carlton banks a lot of these like nerdy people of color on tv. Maybe sometimes says from that seventies show me. He had like a bit of a nerdy flair to him. I feel like latinos on tina's specifically were usually depicted as like very sensual loud colorful. You know things sofia vergara in modern family that was the typical depiction of what was and. So that's why. I had a hard time in the audition room. I didn't fit any mold of what especially miami casting paint a picture for me of what auditioning in miami looked like. It was a nightmare for me. I would show up and for those who don't know me. I'm like five feet pasty skinny little shits and he but then i have this like deep voice. No one knows what to do with me. So then i shopped to these auditions and they were usually little late sorta lottery or like colgate but then i would be up against women my age but they looked like supermodels and then there was me so then i just never felt like. I was sexy in us to sell toothpaste. I remember my very very first universal casting audition. It was for the florida lottery. And i had to be like this sexy. You're even an award. These like plastic clear stripper heels. I don't know. I don't know what i was thinking but i was nineteen years old. The silver lining of this terrible experience is that emotive issue to become a creator. I was tired of this. I was so tired. And then i did a couple extra work. Gigs was extra on. Burn notice and dexter. And guess what. I was scantily clad and tacky his hell because that's what they thought of people in miami. All of these shows always depicted people from miami in the same way and it always took place in south beaten always involve drugs and sex and violence. Which is another reason why. I'm working so hard today. To eventually sollers show. That depicts miami in a more authentic way so yeah it pushed me to go to school and learn how to do everything else on my own.

Amazon is to play the cameras in amazon branded. Cargo vans used by a handful of companies.

Delivery providers usually distinguishable by amazon branded cargo vans responsible for picking up packages from amazon delivery stations and dropping them off at doorsteps. The program launched in two thousand. Eighteen has allowed the company to quickly scale up.

"Tell us a little bit about how much things have changed. It's been quite a journey. Free has been a journey for all of us but Alan on this wild ride. That wasn't just an internet business journey. It was a personal transformation. Johnny to i'll. I'll get to that in a minute but from an internet marketing perspective. Yeah things have changed a lot. I remember using web position. Gold and thinking. Wow this is really having to make a separate version for every one of these search engines of the same content just feels really nikki to me and and wasteful and stupid and. I just did not like doing that. And didn't do much of it because they hated it so much and thankfully that was something that just got became irrelevant when google came along when Actually when backrub came line which became google. Can you believe that was the name of of kids to their dorm room looking to name things. Funny thing names you know so. I just fell in love with google and wanted to figure out how to reverse engineer it and at the time we were building ecommerce websites as the primary business but baking. Seo into those websites became a fiction of ours and and for me in particular and then i realized that there are a lot of other kinds of websites out there and bigger businesses who would never hire a small agency to build an ecommerce site for them. Because maybe it's a huge brand like target dot com or something so we wanted to offer audits and standalone seo consultancy services beyond just making it into an ecommerce website build and That was back in two thousand or so two thousand two thousand and one and We've been cash. it's been It's been a long road and there've been a lot of google updates and it's not about chasing after the latest update. It's like driving a car using only the rear view mirror. If that's the case and my thet ford to the future of future proofing year Your business and Online business your website and so that would involve things like a and Scalable strategies things of course need to be pearly white hat not just pretty white hat and is to be you know super super white and stuff that you're comfortable sharing with google engineers and saying here's what i'm doing if there's anything you're at all not comfortable with you should reevaluate something. You are happy to to show off to google engineer or Be happy for your competitor. Discover when they're reverse engineering what you're up to in terms of seo than yeah you should reevaluate it. You've said you've mentioned reverse engineering a lot in the first couple minutes of this help take part of reverse of your career has reverse engineering big. Sounds like it's a big. Yeah so i figured out at pretty early stage in in my business career that i could not just reverse engineer google's algorithm but kind of Put a middleware layer between my clients website and the greater internet and thus i could Kind of search and replace real time things that were not search engine optimized on the core website but i would like to search engine optimize it and serve it up to and needed a proxy kind of middleware layer in order to do that. Because if i were to do that on the Let's say blue martini. If you remember that platform install it would take many minds. And maybe a million dollars to implement the changes that i wanted to see on the live site and so i invented a proxy reverse proxy technology Back in two thousand and three called gravity stream and that actually became the majority revenue producing component or part of the agency and a. It was a big reason why i was able to sell the agency in two thousand and ten because that was Like majority of the revenue was performance based pricing. We had client for example. zappa's We charge seven figures in Pay for performance Spend in a year's time because we were generating that much value for them. We charged on a cost per click basis. Fifteen cents a click so everybody wanted to sign up because folks who doesn't want pay for performance if you don't get the performance you don't get the value you don't pay for it so we bring that back down to kind of our core audience which is really people that are just learning about see. Oh just trying to understand how to get better at seo. What can they do at their level. What kind of things would make sense for them to try to reverse engineer without these big multi million dollar tools. Is there something they can do as as new people to really help them totally leverage yeah totally just off the cuff. Some examples here just doing a simple. Google search can help you to reverse engineer. Let's say what buzzfeed is doing in order to get so many links and and so much Click through nee click throughs. It's the the hook and the headline. That's kind of their secret sauce. They have the pick really good Images and they write the articles. Well and you know come up with great quizzes and all that as well but really it starts with the hook and then the headline and if you want to reverse engineer what they're doing as inspiration to raise your own viral content link worthy of viral content. So that you can get like they get. You might put in your topic. Plus site colin buzzfeed dot com in as a google search. And see what comes up as The articles and and the headlines if you want to get a little fancier with it you could do in title colon and then the topic. There's no space after the coal by the way so entitled colon plumbing for example if you're plumber and then site colon buzzfeed dot com. It's so simple. And yet you're aren being essentially ripping off in duplicating But i like. I said with using it as inspiration not copy and paste so. Let's actually do that.

Samantha Tomaszewski, social strategy leader, BuzzFeed, on career in social media audience engagement

"Today. We're gonna talk about audience work samantha. I think maybe a useful place to start might be with you. You're of course the social strategists of commerce for buzzfeed. He told me exactly what that means. Yeah so i. Focused specifically on buzzfeed has an entire shopping and commerce. Vertical on that helps generate revenue for the site so i focus on the Social strategy that has to do specifically with. Yeah our shopping. Vertical commerce that we have different facebook and instagram account We should affiliations through the app. Trying to get people to view and hopefully convert and shop from buzzfeed shopping's content and you'll training is actually journalism. Right yes yeah. I went to lehigh. University and i studied journalism political science. So how'd you go from as journalists to to what you do now because they seem slightly not far apart but they of course. Different skills and disciplines. Yeah an. I honestly think this is why i enjoy doing a lot of like student. Mentorship conversations is something that i do in my spare time because i love to talk to students about how i went from my studies university to Where i am now and the kind of important middle pieces. I also worked for huffpost for about three years as an audience editor. That was definitely more than new space before. I made the transition to commerce but it was definitely my treating from school. That got me there where i did study. You know a lot of social media. And i worked for my student newspaper editor-in-chief so i think a lot of practical experience that i get in college was able to help me leverage interviews and opportunities that they did come up after i graduated. This is going to be useful for more. We're about to about to talk about what i don't understand is where does your journalistic thread really still help you today. yeah i think in conversations with students are being active on twitter. And i think yeah. It's definitely helped me again. Even though i am in the commerce face now that i do approach it from maybe a different perspective somebody who has a marketing background or a different sort of training. And i think that's helped me sort of succeed in that role in yet. Maybe look at marketing ecommerce from a different lens at a different angle that kind of that journalistic training and news is still kind of always been like my passionate. My background yes. It's been cool to kind of approach. A new different challenge in like a slightly different discipline. With that lens. so samantha at the stop december. You had a twitter thread which seemed to go on a quite a bit of attention and just gonna take a few moments to read through that for our audience who may not seen it. You say i was on the mentoring cool with a student about to graduate college and she told me that a member of a fairly popular journalism organization gave her some discouraging advice. This person told her not to go into audience work. she was taught. That should be better off working in a reporter all covering political committee even if no one read her work. I was shocked. And that's really the main part of the the tweet you to talk about the kind of skills that you acquire through working in social and how that might help to make you a better journalist editor in chief had of audience etc and basically saying the audience. Work is a valid career path for me. What kind of stuck out with this. And what seemed to be the main thrust of the compensation that audience roles in journalism at least are perhaps not taking seriously as some of the more traditional roles still existent in the newsroom. So can you recap on. Wherever where this threat came from the impetus for that was sure. Yeah i expected to take off as much as it did but obviously it was very encouraging to see that so many people have strong reactions to it. And we're coming out in support of what. I was saying that that was great and i think it was just that i had spoken to the student and i had such like a you know on one hand infuriating but on the other hand like poignant sort of anecdote from her about somebody telling her that she shouldn't go into audience work in that she would be better off being a reporter doing work that nobody was even reading which doesn't really make sense to me. That was just. She clearly had been so affected by being told that even though her passion was an audience. I just wanted to try and you know in my conversation with her. I tried to tell her that. That certainly wasn't true. I've been able to find a path for it myself. But i just wanted to speak to that to the journalism community at large in some way Because i was so shocked that someone would tell like a growing journalists that I'm not asking you to to name drop of course but can you be more specific about the type of news organization. That had sort discouraged her in this way. And i don't even she didn't even name. I don't know the individual who it was and that's obvious he never would. It was about but you know a fairly large digital mu organization in one that does promote journalism and digital media yagi Specific affiliation with the organization. Or anything like that. You know what. I'm trying to get a picture of where that kind of attitude has come from. We're talking about you said digital media company based in the us deny yes legacy your print media. That's what was interesting is that it was coming from somewhere that i wouldn't have expected this sort of advice navy to come from interest and in your experiences this like an isolated event. You hear this a lot. Yeah i mean. I think i've also experienced a lot. Even you know by career so far in you know. Both of the newsroom's i've worked in and buzzfeed Post there obviously. The vast majority of people are incredibly supportive of the audience team. But i do think it is sometimes struggle to get your foot in the door in certain meetings or to get your opinions out by certain journalists. Who may be you know are entrenched in some of these older schools of thought about what even is audience worker. Why is it important. So i think i've seen that. There is still a learning process. Even when i've been in newsrooms trying to do the work that i do cleaning they'll put you off. No no because. I think it is. It is important so i think it's really rewarding when you do maybe get through to somebody who didn't understand how you can help them in. Their story goes viral on twitter. Because you mockup a tweet thread. That does really well. Then they see the value of it. I think there's constantly a need for audience enters to try to prove and show results and data for what they're doing and i do you know have found that rewarding as well to be able to show people like. Here's what we can do to elevate your work like look at works that it's really exciting. So i mean the thrust of that conversation. Was it very much. That audience roles are just not as integral to the newsroom. Or was it that they just kind of look down on a as i said from the beginning like not taking seriously. What was called the main bone of contention like disgust here. Yeah i mean. I think all of those things are potentially depending yet. I think who you're talking to. I think obviously. I was speaking to the student as like a career conversation. She was about to graduate and she was trying to figure out what she should pursue. So i think it was. You know maybe they aren't as integral to newsroom so she shouldn't do it because maybe they're not stability there but again i know i shared with her. You know it's just one experience. But i have. I've experienced stability in far in my career. you know. obviously they're always layoffs in media yet. I think against you that if you wanted to have a future in journalism she was getting told that maybe this wasn't the right path for her. Because i think that was another point in my thread is she has an interest in politics. She was getting told. You know if you wanna go into political journalism you have to be like a beat reporter and that's the only way you can get there but again i don't really think that's true and something else. I tried to outline in my throat is how many great skills you do learn being an audience that can transfer to being reported. You know people who have moved into production or product or any sort of area in media and beyond so. I think i was really just trying to emphasize that it is a valid career path. We shouldn't be telling young journalists that it's not

"Us are going to merge into one one giant company so just out in the hallway? There is a team of bankers. And and we're just GonNa all go out and we'll hash it out and by the end of the day we should have. That would be real tough immigration though. Never mind that's probably not probably not a good idea. You talked to definitely were in some of those talks. What why didn't you guys make one of those deals? I mean we were never in a position where he felt like we had to make could be l.. Summit what I was saying in that interview. was that smaller players in the digital space Would probably really need to do a deal in part because I looked at this space in it felt like it was bifurcating to influence or type content creators who can build pretty decent decent businesses several hundred thousand to several million dollars a year with like one person or a small team and they had a lot of advantages advantages that big media companies don't have lower cost structure less rules and constraints in the kind of content. They could make in some cases is and they were there providing a lot of the content of the big platforms and so they are a huge force. And so I was looking at those kinds of companies and then I was looking looking at companies like like busby which is a several hundred million revenue and and the ability to build out all these diversified revenue sources is and generate more revenue for the content. We're creating because we have all these teams it infrastructures and support and it just felt like there were a lot of companies that were in the middle where they it didn't have the leanness of the influencers to be able to operate a more efficiently but they also didn't have the ability to bring in enough enough of the talent and business and things like that and so it felt like those those companies were in a position where they needed to needed to to merge and what about the bigger companies my employer of ice spot refinery. Maybe somewhere in the middle of the discussion we're having but the bigger your your company bigger companies merging urging as well. I don't think that there is as pressing a need. I think for the mid size companies that makes a lot of sense to join a bigger company the bigger the bigger digital digitally native companies I think Fox's at scale and can operate effectively buzzfeed's Swedes at at scale. There's a few you know a bigger companies that that that can do that. It could make sense for some of them to it could be. It could be make they could they could. You could see bigger combinations. That could make sense. But I don't think there's there's an urgency for it last question you said Ed in this memo that you WanNa buy a company called meet up. This is one of the many companies that we work bod and is now furiously trying to sell off and this is part of a strategy. You had paid social. Why did you meet up? And what does paid social. Look like for buzzfeed. I mean I had a vision for how meet up could be part of buzzfeed that I I was really excited about which was. Essentially we've been seeing more and more that our content is inspiring action in the world and whether it's transactions and our commerce business or or just people going on trips or trying things joining communities finding in discovering new phantoms. We see content really driving action and I thought that meet up could be another way to have something downstream from out where when people get excited engage with our content. They then connect with meet with people in the real world so that we could integrate an interesting way that would drive a lot of value this concept of paid social that in some ways it's counter to the current trend trend which is all the social platforms are free and available to everyone and then all the content companies are focused on paid and subscription models. uh-huh and what if you reverse that and you had a layer of content that was free across all platforms on the internet which is speeds approach. Cure all the best of the Internet. And then you combine that with paid aid social where you don't have two billion people on the platform you have a couple of hundred thousand here a million there and the consumers paying I wanNA pay. HBO With Like Minded People. People who share interests that I have so it would meet up. Meet up organizers pet you know pay a fee to be subscription to be able to bring people together. I think you're going to start to see more niche social things. People aren't just paying for content. They're paying to be in an in a social environment with like minded people without the harassment without all their data. Bean suck for advertising without some of the some of the negative things so niche communities and paid communities is an area that we're exploring and starting to think about and meet up could've accelerated it but I think there's other ways to to to build interest teen alternatives to the social networks that are smaller and more niche that could and and also provide new lines of revenue. Thanks again to join a party for sitting down with me. Thanks again to the folks at digital content next for hosting us. This is Rico media. I will see you next week..

When in fact, the evidence now shows that it was not explicit. I'm Benjamin witness. And this is the law fair podcast April thirtieth two thousand nineteen on January seventeenth of this year. Buzzfeed news reported a blockbuster. The headline reads President Trump directed. His attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about the Moscow tower project. It was a remarkable story and within twenty four hours of its publication. The special counsel's office had issued an unprecedented statement taking issue with it, and describing unspecified components of it as quote inaccurate, unquote. It wasn't clear at the time. What parts of the story were inaccurate? And how much of it was true. But in light of the actual Muller report. We can now identify the parts of the story that had problems and the parts that did not the two reporters who wrote the story Anthony cormier. A and Jason Leopold joined me yesterday to do a kind of after action report on the story. How did they come to report what they report what parts of the story? Do they stand by what parts do they think they messed up on? How was the story sourced? And what does the discrepancy between the story and the Muller report tell us about the conduct of Donald Trump? It's the law. Fair podcast episode four hundred thirteen a BuzzFeed after action report with Leopold and cormier. All right before we talk about and do the kind of after action report on your guys story about Trump directing Michael Cohen to lie to congress. I wanna start actually much earlier, which is with some of the other stories that you guys have reported on the Trump Russia stuff because I. I think people tend to look at the story in a kind of vacuum. And I wanna situate it in the context of a much broader range of reporting that you guys did. So I which ever of you wants to take this a try let's start with a kind of overview of the work that you had done prior to January seventeenth two thousand nineteen. So, you know, we started covering the Trump administration really from the first offer stays at BuzzFeed news and both started. I started early January Jason shortly after that. And the editor asked us pretty simply to figure out what happened in twenty sixteen who are these characters involved what were their potential roles in twenty sixteen. What were they doing before that we started? I started personally to look Michael Cohen some of his own dubious business ceilings before he acts. We reached the Trump organization. Our job was never to really examine the dossier. But we knew the Toan in. This case was was a big part of that knew that he must have played some kind of role in twenty sixteen and began to look at what he had done. We were very fortunate to work with some pretty incredible sources who who gave us insight into not just Mr. Cohen. But eventually a number of entities, it surrounded Trump and his campaign in particular able to glean insight into their finances..

"Suddenly all the journals you start to lose that hoity-toity air when your doing follow up reporting that links to explosives so it becomes very hard to maintain that air. I think and I think it's incredibly disappointing and you talk about lying there. I mean, they they mentioned in the US office when the like lodge suedes if not the entire LGBTQ coverage division was decimated. They say what's the future of young queer media coverage now because you can't just do this to organizations because this certainly legacy broad Costa's and organizations bay not doing that kind of coverage in those some of those nations. So I guess this rises a few interesting questions about the future of this category. And we talk about BuzzFeed is being news ostensibly for young people, but it was a pretty diversified business. Right. So there was obviously we talk about the Thais tvos because hugely popular. I think there was a statment apologies if I get this wrong. But I think fifty percent of Americans had seen a tie stevia which. You've never seen was this little these little square video shot from above of somebody making something that kind of looks mostly like start a food, but it was really popular and very odd to from in terms of what the future of the business looks like the lost a lot of people is they business guy. Look different is the output going to change off the back of this. Donna. I mean, it's pens on what their investors think they've built equity in rise. So all of us who work in journalism and media, we obviously have friends who who work there and we've seen their great work. And we understand what they've done, but from paps called hot cash point of view. They may not think that that's right. They may be they may end up outsourcing journalists and trying to create the same level of coverage. But perhaps not have them on staff. Will outsourcing is an interesting point because it was big story about aspects of that that has been outsourced to great effect clip. Yeah. I mean, the head of the quizzes department we all scoff at quizzes on buzz fade. But when you've got area on the ground doing a, which of Grundy a you and saying, I got me. You know that these become touched contraception. Yeah. Cultural touch sons, and he tweeted out that one of the second highest creator of quizzes was just a community member out in the midwest. And they got one hundred twenty million page views for these quizzes that they created just for fun and BuzzFeed, essentially paid them with sending them a couple of bags and books are basically swag. The bucket of the clause from the back of the closet, essentially. Yeah, they have a really strong community member focus, and that's you can spin that one and say, we're really engage without raiders, which they are they definitely right from a perspective of working in nations. Trying to think about the rate of first, but also they can call on those rate is inside you want to be part of something bigger. Don't you want to write for us the fame and the glory that teenager gets from having BIC we on BuzzFeed as huge. But that means that the organizes the manages they don't have to pay those people. What was really interesting was. I saw a tweet from someone in the BuzzFeed news team who incidently wasn't laid off. But she said that BuzzFeed is currently hiring long editorial and video Philo 's in the past fellowship programs with three to four months and paid hourly wages with no benefits application advocation ju- today will layoffs are happening across the company affecting full-time employees in those same departments very spicy tweet from someone who still kept their job at BuzzFeed, but it points to a greater trained to rely. On interns, junior fellows, they might call them. I mean, BuzzFeed fellows has its own Twitter account of their hot takes there's a lot of a move towards that. And unfortunately, if you don't necessarily have I guess meteor onto standing or media training than they might be a whole generation of people coming up thinking that exposure is a great way to pay bills.

"You know, I think we were very confident in our in our in this in this reporting because I worry about buzzfeed's brand as a whole this story is wrong. Buzzfeed news as a whole is in trouble. I appreciate your concern. We wouldn't are you. Aren't you concerned about that? You know, we're confident in the story. And we're and we are looking, and I think that we also do think that while there is right now and understandably focus on the media story and on the process story. The important story here is about the relationship between the Trump administration and Russia. I agree with. Our reporting has been central to that. And we'll continue to is it. Let's forget the cameras are on this. What really happened is it that Trump said to Cohen take care of me. Don't screw me. Is it is it mob talk. Is that what happened here? We'll get. There wasn't directing him to lie. It was telling them. Don't screw this up. Michael g you have I mean, mean. that's what I'm wondering. Because we'll take you guys. Tell me is that what actually happened? We don't know. We're trying we're we're trying to get the exact language that was used in this conversation. We will get there. One day. We continue to report like mad as we always do. But but but what we reported that the president United States directed. Michael Cohen to sit to lie to congress is accurate that that is fundamentally accurate. We're going to get inside the room where it happened and bear it out what we've taken this to ground here. We're going to go even further to get inside that we are you fed up. Ben the Muller investigations taking this long, and we don't have answers to these questions. No. I think I mean, I think that I understand Muller's. I mean, I understand the amount of stress and pressure. They are under and we certainly are not trying to write the mother report. We are not trying to project inside his head inside his offices head. We are writing about the evidence. And what our sources have told us about the. But I think you know, we, it's it's difficult. I think in this media environment. And you know, I say this is somebody who came up in this environment is very much part of it. Yeah. It just say, we don't know everything we we know we know we know we know as accurate the words that you were talking about before that you were speculating what he might have said, what are you might have said, you know, there is a transcript you don't have it. And we don't have it the and we in every reporter in the country is chasing it right now. And I think that you know, that we are confident that our reporting is going to bear out. But it's, but I also understand that, you know, we're, you know, you're on television twenty four hours a day or on the internet twenty four hours a day. It is hard to say, which from others report, wait for more reporting. But I think that is obviously what we're all doing Anthony. Is there anything I'm leaving out anything? I haven't asked you. That's the best reporter question, right? That's what you know. We're really appreciate you having us on. I mean, we're we're we're here to talk about our work. And I'm glad to do it. You know, it's been two years. We've broken some of the biggest parts of this story. And and again, I I'd like to go back to the fundamental part of it during the heat of a presidential campaign. A candidate said he had no business dealings with Russia later turns out that he did his attorney goes to congress and said these negotiations ended in January we were the first to report that well, no actually that hampered and then in June now this morning Rudy Giuliani's making even more news. He saying, well, maybe it wasn't June. Now, it's November the core of this story is the president of the United States as a business deal that he and the people around him wanted to keep quiet from the American public. That's that's where we're warning. And we're we're going to go ahead and for viewers in the United States that interview is going to Riera and forty minutes. You can watch it here on CNN, I greatly.

The story published by BuzzFeed news reporting that the president directed is attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project and reporting that the special counsel learned this both from Cohen, but also from other witnesses and from other documents then suddenly late tonight. The special counsel's office issued a statement disputing at least the part of the story that has to do with the special counsel molars office saying in this again, rare statement tonight that buzzfeed's quote description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Michael Collins, congressional testimony are not accurate description of specific statements scripture of specific statements characterization of documents and testimony obtained by the office. Tonight. Buzzfeed says they stand by their reporting, and they say they are urging the special counsel to make clear exactly what his office is disputing here. Joining us now is Chuck Rosenberg former US attorney in the eastern district of Regina, former senior FBI in Justice department official Mr. Rosenberg it is great to have you with us tonight. Thank you for making time on my pleasure. Thank you for having me. So let me just I want you to tell me what you think is important about this, your your your feelings about the reporting in the first instance. But also the statement from the special counsel's office about it. You know, there's an aspect of five year old soccer to this. If you ever watched kids play the all sort of mass together every now and then the ball squirts loose, and then they run over to the ball together.

"But right now it is hard to discern. Based on the statement. I wanna put up the DeWitt the BuzzFeed statement that they have no put out can we let's put that up on the screen because I think for for people who are just joining this is a statement now that BuzzFeed has said in the wake of the statement of from molars office. Buzzfeed says we are we are continuing to report and determine what the special counsel is disputing. We remain confident in the accuracy of our report. This is a problem. This is a big deal and a problem for BuzzFeed when I was United States attorney we used to debate this issue, not commonly, but not infrequently. And that is when a report comes out in some newspaper, or in some media outlet that has a lot of things. Correct. But it has a few things incorrect like who is the object of scrutiny or. Documents. We have mischaracterized things in a certain way. Usually our plan was to keep our mouths shut because you can do more harm by talking than not talking. Sometimes it was agreed enough. You felt like you had to make some statement kind of like what Peter car did here. The problem is you don't want to go. An edit their peace and say, we'll among these fifteen facts. Yes. Because then you become their editor. And then you become sort of a party to letting them know secret, confidential information. So I think it's fine and proper what special counsel's office did. And they had to do it. And it must have been extraordinarily difficult thing to decide to do it. And as we said it took them twenty four hour twenty hours to do it. But they're not going to get answers. Buzzfeed is not going to get answers from them telling them what little things you got wrong, and what you didn't get wrong, which leaves BuzzFeed in a very bad situation. And and press outlets sometimes face that if they don't get everything, right? And the prosecutor speaks in this way. And then retreats reactive just from a reporting standpoint explain for people out there. What happens now too? For those BuzzFeed reporters for buzzed. Are they they go back to the people? They talked to they tried to. I mean, just speaking generally people will go back to their sources and try to reestablish trails. And look at what they have. And what they don't have. And Ben Smith is the editor in chief of BuzzFeed is a very smart aggressive reporter. And I'm sure that he has his reporters doing that one thing that I think is really important that I didn't mention before in the course of the reporting of this the challenge that everyone has had in terms of reporting this story Michael Cohen has pleaded guilty to lying before congress. And this is something that you have the Trump team say all the time is Michael Collins Aligarh microphones layer. And they use it to go to they're no wrong. They used to his credibility. But he has he has acknowledged that. Whereas the White House has a massive credibility problem. And this is why when you have it is very what else as far as I know have not have knowledge that they have lied about anything harassed, and I think that that is they have acknowledged sometimes errors. But that very infrequently. And so this is why when I had a lot of people around the White House and around the president saying. To me today. You know, why is everyone not just you know, why why why why do they have to why why does the Trump team have to give a response? Well, because people are not going to just assume that because the president's folks say, we're not going to dignify this that that you know, suggests that therefore there is something wrong with the BuzzFeed reporting. There is a cost to constantly saying things that aren't true..

"Hey, I'm Alex Laughlin in here three stories you need to know about today. The Puerto Rican government has finally acknowledged that more than fourteen hundred people died in hurricane. Maria. Last year they're official number is sixty four. The figure was included in a four hundred page draft report to congress called transformation and innovation in the wake of devastation under a section related to hurricane damage, but Puerto Rico hasn't updated its official death toll yet. The government said, it's waiting on the findings of George Washington University investigation. I even though families and funeral directors in at least two towns told BuzzFeed news that dozens of deaths were being excluded. In the government's tally, the printer can government clung to its official death toll of sixty four BuzzFeed news also found that nine hundred eleven possible hurricane victims were cremated without the government's permission and without being examined to see if their death was caused by the storm. Still during a visit to the island President. Donald Trump used the relatively low official death toll, which was sixteen at the time as a measure of how Puerto Rico had not experienced a quote real catastrophe like New Orleans did after Hurricane Katrina. Puerto Rican governor Ricardo Rossello administration has defended its low official death toll as accurate for months. And this new report doesn't explain the disparity between the numbers. George Washington University's report is due to be published next month. This week is the first anniversary of the unite the right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was a gathering of neo-nazis in white supremacists that left one counter protester dead. The city of Charlottesville has denied permits for Serie protests, but interim city manager. Mike Murphy warned the public to expect a heavy police presence and road closures downtown. There are also several events protesting racism planned around the city, Virginia governor. Ralph north has already declared a state of emergency in preparation and the Virginia national guard will also be authorized to assist unite the right organizer. Jason Kessler managed to get a permit for a rally in Washington DC on Sunday morning counter protesters will also be there officials from around the DC area are preparing to deter potential violence by keeping the two groups separated as much as possible. BuzzFeed news will be covering this heavily. So keep an eye on BuzzFeed news dot com. And of course Stallard the BuzzFeed news app. As you know, movie pass is kind of falling apart right now, partially because it offered such a good deal.

"What you were doing would be like the buzzfeed sponsored design section or whatever like we just essentially like rebuild the same systems over like everything's independent and it's like oh there's money here we'll wait a minute let's build like a huge corporation and then put that under the corporation and if you never get paid or people like you never get paid then you can never offer an opportunity to an alternative to what is going to be huge like there's always going to be like is this thing in podcasting like it's good to be able to make i make adravina on the show not a ton but it keeps it as something i can prioritize and that's important and i think the pending on what sort of podcast and community you're a part of it can be difficult because when i mean coming from art and design the art design community for some reason is so like outwardly anti money and everyone feels like at somehow less like everyone loves the word authentic which i just loathe but our community loves to say authentic and that you lose on authenticity when you make money off of it but it's such a privileged point of view to be like no one should make money off of the things they love like yeah you should make money i hope you make a ton of money off of doing things you love because sure lets you pay in higher other great people to do things and that's part of the joy of of the magazine was like finally having a budget to hire people that i love and respect and i don't always have that budget for the blog so i wanna hire pay people who are awesome i think that's such a great point i think a lot about the the comics who early on in my standup career world so very much just like i'm all about the art man and i and i can't have a day job because i need to go off and do five shows a week and then it wouldn't even be like like it didn't even occur to me i wouldn't even think about it except for like a year or two later be like wait a minute but like where are they living and then it would be like oh with their parents or like who's paying for their rent their parents like it was there was never so the you're right the like totally pure person sometimes is may maybe not as pure as they are presenting somebody's paying those bills aren't just like stop worrying about purity so much god can't we just listened to have lots of options to do things and if you don't like the way one person does it then don't buy a reader support that thing choose another thing there's so many great podcasts or so many great blogs blah blah blah there's so many options and for everyone get fixated on how a few people are doing something just drives me nuts because there's just way too many cool options to choose and we all know there's plenty of negatively on the internet so like just choose something else i love the yes you're right you can support the things you like and that will be enough you don't have to take down but you get a lot more attention when you say negative oh gosh tries me i follow love repeal and i was watching like this kind of deep intellectual analyst of the fan community the other day and i just had this moment of like maybe let's just stop paying mention to people who are just only spewing negatively and just celebrate the things that are good and instead of tearing down a queen.
