Paul Carr: Don’t overestimate BuzzFeed as a serious news site

“Of course, it’s early days for BuzzFeed as a serious news organization. It’s quite possible that the site’s election coverage will put that of the HuffPost — or even the Times — to shame. But right now there’s no evidence whatsoever — beyond David Carr writing the words — that BuzzFeed’s strategy of hiring respected journos from ‘real’ media is any different from Huffington’s ‘hood ornament’ strategy.”
