CNN Buzzfeed YouTube Channel: First Video Up, Mashup News Channel Launches Now

|

My mentor at ABC News, where I was the first network correspondent to cover tech on national TV, was the late, great Peter Jennings. He was fascinated with tech and sure it would transform news for better and worse. We've seen a lot of worse. CNN Buzzfeed -- or CNNBuzzfeed -- is a joint venture of CNN, Buzzfeed and YouTube. It launches officially May 28, 2013 but just launched its first video. The site will mash up original content with CNN content, old and new. The way it's designed, at least from what we're hearing, might be just what that great boss of mine hoped for. Real content, really quickly, shared rapidly and, let's hope, accurately and fairly. Watch for the announcement today. Developing. Gina Smith for aNewDomain.net

Apple, GM and other firms are relying on insoucing more and more. H-1B visas are going to be key to this, Michaelis says. Check out his analysis, plus a video debate and an infographic around the issues of insourcing. Commentary, aNewDomainPolitics
