Well, I didn't think Emily could sink any lower professionally, but Elite Daily is the garbage of garbage.

I was saying that to someone else. It's Buzzfeed, but worse, and with no legit journalism. When I was saying how garbage-y it is, I decided to at least fact-check myself (I'm so editor-y y'all!) and one of the things I read was their wikipedia page.

Hahaha, I was both surprised and delighted that Elite Daily is actually, seriously, worse than I even thought if you read all the way through: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_Daily

Oof. 

 

"Feminist blog, Jezebel, has been a frequent critic of Elite Daily's content, calling it "sexist" and "misogynistic."

"Daily Mail Purchases Elite Daily to Form Voltron of Shit"
haha, I miss Max Read

Another good one:

My deep dark secret is that I have something published on Thought Catalog. At the time I thought I was the shit, but now I keep it off my resume and portfolio.

I knew it was downhill after xojane. The criticism of Elite Daily from Jezebel and Gawker is rich considering that they fanned flames online when they published Hugo Schwyzer, and called Saartjie Baartman the first booty idol to name a couple. Don't throw stones now.

Yeah, I have no love for Jezebel. It's more of an 'if they're criticizing a site you know its bad' kind of thing.

Imma stan for Jezebel and say that, while they have moved a long way away from their initial pupose/tone, they are a widely-read site that does publish some good work, and even when it's fluffy nothing, it's still professionally done in comparison to the "lower tier" of sites. There's a lot more accountability there (god, I can't believe I said that, but in comparison to the standards of ED, there IS).

The Gawker properties are all the same in that they try to straddle the line between views/pop info and legit journalism, so sometimes it's that garbage about Geithner or "funny" drivel like Jez's maxi dress "satire," and sometimes it's great work from Dave McKenna on Deadspin doing the only investigative work out there (for a long time) about Kevin Johnson or the interview Jez did with the BDSM porn star with a TBI, to think of two examples off the top of my head. Though I admit that other than Anna Merlan their staff seems to be pretty weak right now.

Lord knows, they still have several thousand times more credibility than xo or Elite Daily.

My feelings on Buzzfeed are complicated. Yes, they are a content farm, but the BuzzfeedNews staff are surprisingly competent and I have read some really interesting stuff on the longer reads. 

 

ETA: I want to clarify my stance on Madam Pantsuit. I'm bummed there will probably be no more articles because they were SUCH a great hate read. The privilege! The obliviousness to said privilege! The entitled tone like she doesn't belong there but she TOTALLY DOES. I loved to hate it.

I agree with you on Buzzfeed. Some of their serious pieces are actually pretty good, though they lose a certain sense of gravity from being on the same website that churns out "25 GIFS about being 25" or whatever. 

Elite Daily, on the other hand, is like 100% crap. They do have some news pieces but they seem to just be short summaries from other sources.
