‘The Simpsons’ spoofs Buzzfeed in new sneak peek

Kent Brockman goes looking for a new job in Sunday’s episode of “The Simpsons,” but the old-school newsman may find it hard to find his place in the new media world.

In a sneak peek provided to CNN, Brockman walks into the open-floor office of Bizzfad — a clear nod to Buzzfeed — and finds rows of content makers churning out headlines like “The 20 People Donald Trump Hasn’t Insulted” and “6 Things You Don’t Know About 6 Things.”

His meeting with the heads of Bizzfad is equally discouraging.

The episode, titled “Trust But Clarify,” will have a storyline in which the anchor struggles to find his feet in the changing media landscape.

Just last week, “The Simpsons” celebrated its 600 episode milestone, with its annual Treehouse of Horror episode.

“The Simpsons” airs Sundays on Fox.
