Buzzfeed All Like 'Ooooh We Have Ethics And Don't Want Your Gross Trump Money' Or Whatever
also very big the biggest handsJonah Peretti, the guy who is famous for owning Buzzfeed and being related to Chelsea Peretti, has some news for the GOP, and that is that IT IS ABOUT ETHICS IN RNC JOURNALISM, and they are not gonna take your stupid bigot bucks, RNC, for the ads on the website about kittens and also sometimesstories about rape.
How much RNC money is Buzzfeed not going to take? Oh, just one point three million RNC money, or in other words, ALL THE MONEY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
Here, let's see the words from Jonah Peretti's face hole, as copy and pasted by three reporters at Politico:
I wanted to share with you a business decision we have made regarding the Trump for President campaign and why we made it.
In April, the Republican National Committee signed an agreement with BuzzFeed to spend a significant amount on political advertisements slated to run during the Fall election cycle. As you know, we accept advertisements from both republican and democratic candidates and we were pleased to accept this advertising order from the RNC.
Since signing this advertising deal, Donald Trump, as you know, has become the presumptive nominee of his party. The tone and substance of his campaign are unique in the history of modern US politics. Trump advocates banning Muslims from traveling to the United States, he's threatened to limit the free press, and made offensive statements toward women, immigrants, descendants of immigrants, and foreign nationals.
Earlier today Buzzfeed informed the RNC that we would not accept Trump for President ads and that we would be terminating our agreement with them. The Trump campaign is directly opposed to the freedoms of our employees in the United States and around the world and in some cases, such as his proposed ban on international travel for Muslims, would make it impossible for our employees to do their jobs.
We don't need to and do not expect to agree with the positions or values of all our advertisers. And as you know, there is a wall between our business and editorial operations. This decision to cancel this ad buy will have no influence on our continuing coverage of the campaign.
We certainly don't like to turn away revenue that funds all the important work we do across the company. However, in some cases we must make business exceptions: we don't run cigarette ads because they are hazardous to our health, and we won't accept Trump ads for the exact same reason.
So that's fine and all, and good for Buzzfeed blah blah blah don't actually care, but if the RNC doesn't know where to stick its Trump ads now, may we suggest a little small business ma and pa website called wonkette.com? We will take your bigot Trump money, and your gross National Republican whatever dollars, and lots and lots of people will click your sexy ads with the big manly Trump hands on them, because they do whatever I tell them to do, like if I say "hey Wonkers, with all the Bernie ad spend all spent up, we are having a fucktussle of a May and June so bad that I had to lay off the Snipy posts that started our Monday mornings and get up at 5 a.m. and write them all myself, HOW IS THAT EVEN FAIR NOW SEND ME MONEY," they will all send me money, it is just science and also a healthy amount of abuse.
Just don't ask us to post your NRA ads, because those slimy fuckers can comment deleted by administrator.
Rebecca Schoenkopf is the owner, publisher, and editrix of Wonkette. She is a nice lady, SHUT UP YUH HUH. She is very tired with this fucking nonsense all of the time, and it would be terrific if you sent money to keep this bitch afloat. She is on maternity leave until 2033.
