BuzzFeed exposed its star writer's ties to white nationalists. The site embarrassingly attacked accusers of alleged pedophile and failed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Breitbart has drawn more likes, comments, and shares than CNN's main page in each of the past three months, according to the analytics firm CrowdTangle.
