Another interesting tidbit from that massive Pew Research Center study we mentioned this morning is that no one seems to trust BuzzFeeed [insert LOL and/or here].
The site was the only media outlet considered by Pew that received across the board distrust by liberals, conservatives and moderates. BuzzFeed did so poorly that people trust Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck more. If you’re a BuzzFeed staffer, that has got to be a little depressing.
The constant barrage of idiotic quizzes and lists is certainly one reason people do not trust BuzzFeed. However, we imagine the site’s battles with plagiarism and mysteriously deleted posts probably didn’t help its cause either. SMH.
