Toronto, Canada – Jonathan Goldsbie, a journalist and podcaster known for his work with CANADALAND, has recently led a memorial ceremony to honor the memory of three major media outlets: BuzzFeed, Gawker, and Vice. The event, which took place on Friday, August 27, was attended by several bloggers, journalists, and media enthusiasts who have followed the rise and fall of these popular websites.

The idea of the memorial ceremony came as an attempt to recognize the cultural significance and contributions made by BuzzFeed, Gawker, and Vice at their prime. These platforms were known for their bold reporting, edgy writing, and unique visual content. They had a huge impact on shaping the media landscape in the early 2000s and paved the way for the emergence of new media outlets.

In his speech, Goldsbie spoke about the importance of these platforms in shaping popular culture and the media industry. He paid tribute to their pioneering work in breaking new grounds in journalism, pop culture, and political coverage. He also expressed his disappointment over the decline of these websites and their loss to the digital media world.

The memorial ceremony was an opportunity for media professionals and enthusiasts to reflect on the evolution of the media industry and the struggle for sustainability in the digital world. Many participants shared their own stories of how these websites had influenced their writing or inspired them to pursue a career in the media industry.

The event ended with a moment of silence to honor the legacy of BuzzFeed, Gawker, and Vice. As the attendees dispersed, many took with them a renewed sense of purpose and appreciation for the work of these trailblazing media outlets.
