John Stanton, the manager of the Buzzfeed Washington branch when it was a viable company, is no longer with Buzzfeed. (YOU DECIDE: Should They Get Paid Time Off Or Not? Arguments Ravaging the Office…)
I’ve been laid off. I’m extraordinarily proud of the work I and my colleagues have done during my 6 and half years at BuzzFeed. It was an extraordinary group of reporters and editors to work with.

“if it’s gonna be like this after every HRC interview I’m gonna lock all y’all in a room with a naked, meth addled Philippe Reines,” Stanton tweeted on June 9, 2014.
Stanton was referring to a Hillary Clinton interview, in the time period before Clinton lost her bid for the presidency to President Donald Trump.
“you should watch hockey caused me to miss all that,” a user currently named “vote nov 6” tweeted to Stanton.
“I hate white people too much for that,” Stanton responded.
BuzzFeed, the outlet behind the infamous and absurd “Golden Showers” dossier, has more than a bit of disdain for President Donald Trump — as proven through these leaked conversations from their private workplace chat.
In screenshots exclusively provided to Big League Politics by former BuzzFeed employee Tim “Treadstone” Gionet, better known as Baked Alaska, the website’s Director of Social Media Maycie Thornton wishes for Trump’s assassination as co-workers laughed and cheered her on.
“Maybe someone will assassinate him,” said Thornton.
“This was not the first time BuzzFeed employees talked openly about wishing President Trump would get assassinated, they hated conservatives so much they even held an office party when Justice Scalia died. It was a toxic environment and you were declared a heretic if you were a Trump supporter, bottom line,” Treadstone told Big League.
Treadstone has been outspoken as his treatment as a BuzzFeed employee after coming out publicly in support of Trump during the election season. His allegations of being treated differently at work for being conservative were confirmed by multiple BuzzFeed employees in a profile by Oliver Darcy for Business Insider.
Appearing on Tucker Carlson on Wednesday evening, Ben Smith Editor-in-Chief of BuzzFeed News, claimed that conservatives did not face discrimination at the outlet.
Smith claimed that Treadstone’s story about unfair treatment were lies when he was confronted about it by Carlson.
Carlson read from Darcy’s piece, “‘I’ll never forget this story,’ Gionet said, recalling to Business Insider the “aha moment” that drove him toward Trump. ‘I was talking about the new Justin Bieber album. And I was like, ‘Dude, that new Justin Bieber album is dope. I have to admit, I love Justin Bieber. He is totally my spirit animal.’ And someone came up to me and was like, ‘Hey bro, you can’t say spirit animal, that’s culturally appropriating Native American culture and that’s not cool.’”
Treadstone claims that after his switch to Trump, his treatment at the outlet took a turn for the worst — and the hostility ultimately led to his resignation.
President Trump Releases FULL 60 Minutes Interview To Counteract Fake News Bias
The interview has been released.
President Donald Trump released the full session of his interview with 60 Minutes presenter Lesley Stahl on Thursday morning, seeking to counteract deceptive edits on the part of liberal media network CBS.
The interview was uploaded on President Trump’s Facebook page on Thursday morning.
CBS’s Stahl can be seen engaging in charged political commentary during the Presidential interview, attempting to correct matter-of-fact statements from the President, such as responding “you know that’s not true” when he speaks of the strength of the economy before the coronavirus pandemic.
The two go on to discuss the national coronavirus response, with the President pointing to quickly decreasing mortality rates in the country that he attributes to what he calls the most stringent testing system in the world. The daily diagnoses of new coronavirus cases in the “progressive” European Union have surpassed those in the United States.

The President continues to call Stahl out as a fake news media personality throughout the duration of the interview, rebuking charged, biased questions and liberal Democrat talking points from the supposedly “neutral” legacy media news show.
60 Minutes had whined upon finding out that the President would release the full video of the 60 Minutes White House interview. They had hoped that they’d be able to color the exchange with deceptive and selective editing, producing a de facto campaign advertisement for Democrat Joe Biden as the President’s challenger proves unable or unwilling to meaningfully campaign.
CBS News Statement:
The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 Minutes from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades. (1/4)

President Trump names China as the United States’ most potent foreign adversary in the interview, and points to the need for continued tough trade restrictions on the mercantilist-Communist dictatorship.
