Digital media companies like BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post can play a vital role in the fight against the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Both men have attacked the media, but both are also viewed as allies of the tech industry.
BuzzFeed, which has more than a million followers on Facebook, was founded by a pair of ex-Trump campaign staffers in 2007.
The Huffington Post has more Twitter followers than the Clintons combined.
The two companies have both embraced technology as a means of reaching their audiences.
BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti recently said that BuzzFeed will “take the first step” by taking down Trump’s videos and tweets.
BuzzFeed was recently accused of censoring a Trump supporter’s videos that contained graphic language.
BuzzFeed has also been a prominent target of both the FBI and the Department of Justice in recent years.
BuzzFeed’s executive editor Ben Smith, in a memo to employees last month, wrote that the company is “deeply concerned” by the threat of a cyberattack and that its employees will be required to work on cyber safety.
Smith also said BuzzFeed would not be commenting on any pending investigations or investigations that may involve BuzzFeed.
BuzzFeed is also the subject of a recent lawsuit filed by the company against the Federal Communications Commission.
BuzzFeed declined to comment on the latest lawsuit.
HuffPost has also played a prominent role in supporting the Clintons, with former President Bill Clinton speaking at its annual convention in 2015.
The publisher of The Atlantic and The Huffington post have also donated millions to the Clinton campaign and to the DNC.
HuffPost’s founder, Marc Benioff, has been vocal in his support of Clinton and has frequently praised her for her experience and intelligence.
HuffPost CEO Ben Smith has also spoken out against the alt-right, a loose group of white nationalists who espouse anti-Semitism, white supremacy and other white supremacist views.
The alt-rights movement emerged in the 1990s, after a white supremacist named Michael David Chapman was killed by police in Virginia.
