But we can’t do it alone. We count on you to make all of our coverage possible. Can you donate $10 per month to support Democracy Now!’s independent journalism all year long? Right now, a generous donor will DOUBLE your gift, which means your $10 donation this month will be worth $20 to Democracy Now! Please do your part right now. Every dollar counts. Thank you so much.

BuzzFeed Lays Off 30% of HuffPost Workers Weeks After Acquisition

HeadlineMar 10, 2021

In media and labor news, BuzzFeed announced nearly 50 U.S. employees of the HuffPost newsroom are being laid off, just three weeks after it acquired HuffPost from Verizon Media. HuffPost’s Canadian operation has also been shut down. The HuffPost Union said in a statement it was “devastated and infuriated,” adding, “Our union will continue fighting to make HuffPost a more just and equitable workplace, including pushing for clear and accountable commitments to hiring and promoting more people of color and for transparency around pay equity.”
