Buzzfeed Gets $200 Million Boost from NBC

(Before It's News)

Much has been made about the success of Buzzfeed, some speculate it’s the listicles or the the mindless articles that have created such a wide reaching site. While those things may have contributed to the rise of Buzzfeed, it’s been the buy out from NBC Universal that has expanded Buzzfeed’s profile and bankroll.

Ad Age is reporting that a $200 Million investment is the next windfall headed Buzzfeed’s way:

Comcast Corp.’s NBC Universal has made a second $200 million investment in BuzzFeed Inc., deepening ties between the two companies in online video and advertising.
The latest funding will let NBC and BuzzFeed work more closely together on ad sales, like producing more short-form digital video for advertisers and sharing it across social media, according to a statement from the companies Monday. It will also help BuzzFeed expand its digital video production, such as its popular food media network, Tasty, they said.

NBC’s latest investment values BuzzFeed at about $1.7 billion, according to a person familiar with the matter. Last year, Comcast’s TV and film division made separate $200 million investments in BuzzFeed and Vox Media, the online publisher of the Verge, Eater and Recode.

While there are inroads being made on what people refer to as “conservative media”, there is nothing like the power of mainstream money to fuel the narrative of choice.

BIN NOTE: If by now you haven’t figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the corrupt government, then I feel for you, but for those who are well aware of the issues it’s high time you switched over to Seen.life. It is a website that is similar to Facebook but without all the censorship.

  • nbc and buzzfeed were both on the list of those who attended the hillary clinton meeting as evidenced in wikileaks.. they are both on the payroll as is every so called mainstream media outlet!

    They are nothing more than propaganda outlets that spread lies, propaganda and indoctrination! They have all proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that nothing they have to say can never be believed.. they are all pathological lying psychopaths working at the behest of the pathological lying psychopaths in government/and monied interests!
