Buzzfeed cuts

From the Crikey grapevine, it’s the latest tips and rumours …

Job buzz. We in the Crikey bunker have been watching the cuts at BuzzFeed, both locally and internationally, with great sadness this week. As Guy Rundle noted yesterday the organisation, which employs Crikey alumni like Josh Taylor and Marni Cordell, has done some great work. While we don't yet know all the implications for the BuzzFeed Australia newsroom (a total of 11 staff in the Sydney office will be made redundant), the activities of the American branch are a cause for concern.
