"[Buzzfeed] shouldn't be underestimated, there's some good journos there."

Were some good journos, maybe?

"Heidi Blake is the UK investigations editor for BuzzFeed News and is based in London. "

https://www.buzzfeed.com/heidiblake looks like a decent track record.

At one stage a few years back (e.g. 2015: Kathy Viner era, maybe) there was a bit of an exodus of journalists from The Guardian to relatively newly established Buzzfeed UK News see e.g.

(UK Press Gazette had some nice coverage too, which I can't find right now)

Earlier in 2018, after another set of disappointing financials, Buzzfeed UK cut around a third of their journalist jobs:

Not looking good for either outfit at the moment. Which doesn't bode well for the rest of us. There's not much we can learn from what used to be called listicles.

So, again, thank you to the good people at El Reg.
