Maybe they will demand fewer listicles and more hard hitting journalism? Maybe they want Buzzfeed to rehire Benny Johnson?
Last week, we told you that the Westboro Baptist Church, a merry band of noxious trolls with questionable ties to Jesus, is returning to New York to picket the New York Times, Facebook, the Huffington Post, and the 9/11 Memorial Museum. It appears that the WBC has realized that picketing media outlets is a good way to get attention: they've added a couple dozen other websites, publishing companies and tech ventures to their picket schedule. This is probably our fault. Sorry, everyone. Sorry.
In addition to their original targets, the WBC now plans to picket Reuters, Viacom, Comedy Central — which they may or may not be aware is a subsidiary of Viacom — the Wall Street Journal, Fox News, HBO, NBC, ABC, CBS, Time Warner, Univision, Buzzfeed (which they refer to as "Buzz Feed"), Gawker, Tumblr, Vine, AOL, Harper's, Scholastic Publishers, Foursquare, and the New York Daily News . Nearly all of these protests will take place on September 10, planned out in 20-minute increments.
