Ah, Casey Neistat. If you're on the internet, you've heard of him and are most likely in one of two camps: "Neistat fan camp," or "vehemently angry how did this guy get famous camp." A couple of months ago he told everyone that news giant CNN bought Beme, his failed app, but it seems that there is more to the story.
Neistat discloses that CNN didn't buy his app, but instead the technology company behind the app. In this video we are able to see some behind the scenes and a first sneak peek at the work he's been doing with CNN. Welcome Beme News, a YouTube channel to be launched in the next few weeks, which has very little to do with news. Watching kind of reminds me a bit of Vice News' kid brother, not very serious, but with the brains of Neistat behind it I'm sure it will be very entertaining. I hope the channel will focus on technology and from what I've seen of the sneak peek, I already like the editing style and vlog feel for "news." If you reside in vehemently angry camp, my advice is to just ignore, but if you're a fan are you excited for this new channel? Let us know what you think in the comments below. I'll definitely subscribe, I love weird news stories (helps tremendously in trivia).
