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

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
