BuzzFeed News has landed an interview with President Obama as he seeks to continue to raise awareness about HealthCare.Gov and making sure people, especially millennials, sign up for coverage. BuzzFeed News Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith is conducting the interview and he is crowd-sourcing questions which can be sent to ObamaIRL@BuzzFeed.Com.
Smith also says that BuzzFeed Motion Pictures, a corporate sibling of BuzzFeed, will be recording a video with the President.
While BuzzFeed News has been praised for its long-form and original reporting, many still compare it to the main BuzzFeed site. In deed, in the comments some mocked BuzzFeed News with potential questions for the President. Taking a note from BuzzFeed’s infamous quiz section, commentators suggested Smith ask, “Which Disney Princess are you?” or “If you were a kitchen utensil, what would you be and why?”
