The choice on what to publish in the media is a strong reflection of that media. For every article or item chosen, a bunch are rejected or not written- and that shows prioritising. If Buzzfeed publishes fake information but can’t be bothered to publish anything on Syria or Yemen — that shows priorities. Buzzfeed wants buzz. It has some nice and refreshing policies on not only having white males in speaking roles in its content, though on the other hand it utterly excludes middle aged and older people. And in the end, it is not concerned about the social consequences of what it publishes.
Nice writing btw :)
