How BuzzFeed crossed the line in publishing
salacious ‘dossier’ on Trump

New York Times, by Margaret Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:Honeybadger, 1/12/2017 6:45:27 AM

Where does transparency meet irresponsibility? Right at the line that BuzzFeed’s editor Ben Smith approached Tuesday and decided to step over in the name of serving citizens’ best interests.With caveats and explanations aplenty, Smith published a 35-page “dossier” — actually just a bunch of scurrilous allegations dressed up as an intelligence report meant to damage Donald Trump.Smith said he did so because his, and BuzzFeed’s, preference and philosophy is, essentially, “When in doubt, publish.” But at many other news organizations, the rule is caution: “When in doubt, leave it out.” In this case, the doubt should have prevailed. News organizations and

The author mentioned Trump´s "dubious" relationship with Russia. That is quite an incendiary adjective that really should be expanded upon or left out.

If it loads slowly or not at all, ZH is probably going through DoSS stuff similar to what someone is doing to Drudge. Can´t wait to find out where all the DoSS is coming from. My money´s on Langley.

When will the msm hold an awards party for the BuzzFeed reporter who reported this "fake but accurate" garbage like they did for Dan Rather? Despite these tepid repudiations from the msm they are secretly over joyed that this got out. I´m sure they regret not releasing it right before the election now but they were so confident hillary would win in a landslide that they didn´t - no need for the October surprise this time. How I loathe the msm.

For those folks, THE CAMPAIGN IS NEVER OVER.

The constant and continual drumbeat of the agenda pushers never waivers as long as they can find true believers to keep pushing the lies.

They took a stab at trying to trump TRUMP by getting unvetted material and making a drive by charge like TRUMP did with Ted Cruz, and it backfired.

They were hoping to slide it through like they do most of their crap, but it failed, and like Hitlery and the DNC rigging the primary against Bernie, Senator McPain failed to weaken TRUMP in a RINO battle for control of the country.

This is the same ol´ same ol´ that´s been going on for a long time now. The only difference is that the smear was in writing as opposed to some reporter keeping it in his or her head.

Notice how all the supposedly legitimate media have jumped onboard the Buzzfeed lead. How convenient. They pretend, now that Buzzfeed has put their libelous article out there, to write these follow-on articles in an analytical manner, but in fact they´re using it to further broadcast the content with impunity.

Nice try. Nobody is buying it. Fake news. Enemedia.

The first article they published in an attempt to take down a Christian couple on the HGTV network should have been their first indication that the culture of the tyranny of the minority died.

Obviously, the poorly-educated who run that site will find out the hard way.

Lots of unemployables in media, entertainment, lobbying, and financial sectors coming up, and I couldn´t be happier.

Not reading the article, but the subhead is clear enough.

#10 nails it.

It´s called ´advancing the story´

Buzzfeed was the provider of the story.

CNN was the first to do the advancing.

Followed by the rest of the herd.

If you happened to watch CNN on Friday morning, you saw a brutal exchange about Russian hacking between a righteous anchor with steam coming out of his ears and a right-wing operative with ice in her veins.“Chris Cuomo bulldozes Kellyanne Conway,” said a headline in one of the many publications so impressed by the encounter that they reported on it. If you happened to watch CNN on Monday morning, you saw that Conway was actually back with Cuomo for more. Surprised? Then you don’t know the first thing about her. She’s no mere mouthpiece, no measly surrogate.

Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who played a critical behind-the-scenes role in the presidential campaign, will take a similar position in the White House as a senior adviser, it was announced Monday. “It is an honor to serve our country,” Kushner said in a statement. “I am energized by the shared passion of the president-elect and the American people and I am humbled by the opportunity to join this very talented team.”Kushner immediately disclosed plans to sell most of his New York holdings, all his foreign holdings, his stake in the family real-estate business and his ownership of the weekly New

President Barack Obama will leave office on Jan. 20 with negative reviews from most members of the U.S. military. More than half the troops in a new poll had an unfavorable opinion of Obama´s leadership of the military for the past eight years, and about 36 percent said they approved of his performance as commander in chief, according to the latest survey by the Military Times and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University.

A man identified as a mentally disturbed Army veteran with voices in his head urging him to join ISIS opened fire inside the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., airport Friday, killing five and injuring eight others in a scene of total chaos.“At first, we thought it was firecrackers,” witness Mark Lea, 53, told MSNBC of the afternoon attack at the busy Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. “Everyone started screaming and running.” The lone gunman, identified as 26-year-old Esteban Santiago, reloaded his weapon twice as he sprayed bullets near the baggage-claim carousels in Terminal 2’s lower level at around 1 p.m.

The election’s over – but Hillary Clinton’s emails are still coming to light. And they help illustrate why the FBI declared she was “extremely careless” with the information flowing across her secret server. A new batch of messages released by the State Department on Tuesday shows the former secretary of state and her team routinely shared her upcoming schedules, talking points and sensitive items – such as her iPad password – via the homebrewed system. Other newly revealed emails, which were posted as the result of litigation, show Clinton’s top advisers griping about her during her time as secretary of State; an

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

Conservative commentator Monica Crowley, who is slated to serve in a top national security communications role in Donald Trump´s presidential administration, plagiarized thousands of words of her 2000 dissertation for her Columbia University Ph.D., a CNN KFile review has found. On Monday, Politico reported that it found more than a dozen examples of plagiarism in Crowley´s Ph.D. dissertation. CNN´s KFile has found nearly 40 lengthy instances of Crowley lifting paragraphs from numerous sources, including several scholarly texts, the Associated Press, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The revelation comes on the heels of another CNN KFile investigation, which found more than

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

President Obama´s last interview as president will be with the same program that aired his first upon taking office: "60 Minutes." The CBS interview — hosted by Steve Kroft — has already been taped and will air on Sunday at 7 p.m. According to the network, Kroft spoke with Obama at the White House about his two-term legacy, President-elect Trump, passing ObamaCare in 2009, Democratic losses in the 2010 midterm elections, the killing of Osama Bin Laden in 2011, and the Syrian civil war. The hour-long special will directly compete with the Green Bay Packers-Dallas Cowboys NFL divisional playoff game on Fox. The game
