The never-ending sleaze-fest that is Ben Smith’s successful but creepy “journalism” career hit another bump Monday in the form of conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt. Smith has spent the better part of a decade on the national stage posing as an objective journalist while crusading for left-wing causes, and doing so in ways so unethical, even Gawker is shocked. Smith and his site BuzzFeed stepped in it Friday. After the Supreme Court made gay marriage the law of the land across all 50 states, BuzzFeed dropped its pretense as an objective news outlet to openly celebrate the ruling. Like many other left-wing sites, BuzzFeed altered its logo to resemble the anti-Christian gay pride flag. When questioned on it, Smith finally admitted what I have been warning people about since 2007 — that Smith is a left-wing activist, not a journalist. “We firmly believe,” Smith told Politico, “that for a number of issues, including civil rights, women’s rights, anti-racism, and LGBT equality, there are not two sides.” And naturally, if you believe there are not two-sides on those issues, how handy it is that those issues can be used to bleed into every other political issue, be it domestic or foreign policy. And you can bet it will bleed into BuzzFeed’s coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign. Speaking with radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt Monday, Smith not only revealed what a provincial, bubbled elitist he is, Smith exposed his outlet as one willing to take sides against a billion Christians on the issue of same sex marriage, but not one willing to take sides on the issue of evil government regimes and Shariah Law.
