Skip to comments.Buzzfeed’s Trump report takes ‘fake news’ to a new level
Posted on 01/10/2017 9:19:31 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
So the website BuzzFeed decided to publish a series of memos that have been floating around for months alleging all kinds of terrible things about Donald Trump.
Some of those terrible allegations have to do with efforts to influence the American elections and Trump. Some of them have to do with Trumps personal sexual conduct.
Readers of this newspaper know well not to include me among Trumps supporters. But the scurrilousness of what BuzzFeed has done here is so beyond the bounds of what is even remotely acceptable it should compel even those most outraged by Trumps political excesses to come to his defense and to the defense of a few other people mentioned in these papers whose names are also dragged through the mud.
There is literally no evidence on offer in these memos or from BuzzFeed that any single sentence in these documents is factual or true. Whats more, we know most major news organizations in America had seen them and despite their well-known institutional antipathy toward Trump, had chosen not to publish them or even make reference to them after efforts to substantiate their charges had failed.
BuzzFeed tells us that the document was prepared for political opponents of Trump by a person who is understood to be a former British intelligence agent. Indeed, the memos are designed to read as though they were cables sent from the field to the home office. And they should set off the bull detector of every rational person who reads them....

Waiting in anticipation for TRUMP’S TWEETS tomorrow morning.
Bottom line, we have a media, some Republicans, and our Govt that despise Trump SO much that they are willing to believe any kind of nonsense..even garbage like this that is laughable on its face that a 5 year old could see is BS and these clowns believe it
Buzzfeed need to become Gawker 2.
This obviously did not include CNN who has run full speed ahead with it, from what I have seen.
Amazing - there's really one old school journalist left in the world? Knock me over with feather... pigs are flying.
it could be a media shitstorm aimed at DT.
1. WHo is this Rick Wilson from the Daily Beast - he is just on MSNBC and he claims that he is speaking on behalf of Senators (McCain - or idiot Dems)
2. WashPost Bernstein is now on CNN saying that it was a reputable ops research guy (british intelligence with long history in Russia) that worked for both HC surrogates and other Repub folks.
Drudge and Fox better provide some support here tomorrow - or there will a very wierd press conference.
This think about the timing of this leak is just so cute - it happens in 36 hours before Trump’s press conference. They are just so evil
Why is THIS not in NEWS section, yet a WaPo fake ass poll is top thread in NEWS on FR.
Imo, too little, too late from the writer of that column.
He’s part of the problem. His entire world view is based on destructionist BS. He may have sidestepped this particular kerfuffle with the fake news, but he’s a destructionist symp, regardless.
The people in Arizona need to hound that POS senator of theirs out of office. I fully expect at less a resolution from the AZ government condemning him.
He needs to be kicked out of any vet group he is a part of if they want to retain any credibility.
No more of this “but he was a POW” crap. He needs to be gone or bankrupted by the end of this month.
Wikileaks has a disclaimer that they never ever had anything to do with Buzzfeed they a a perfect reputation to maintain
Plus, remember he's having a press conference tomorrow. Don't know the time. Should be the most interesting PC in American history, lol.
I'm sure he'll bring up all the fake news circulating today, as well as having a golden opportunity to comment on the mush in Obama's farewell address tonight.
Hey Im still trying to figure out how McCain keeps on winning..I mean seriously, people of Arizona, KICK HIS ASS OUT ALREADY..what is it about McCain that is just so appealing to some people, is it the way he says “My friends” what is it because frankly I cant stand his face
This report was a setup job by a guy on 4Chan you can read about it here
On Day 1 of the Trump Administration, Brennan will be walked out of his CIA office in handcuffs.
Fake News pushed by fake journalists put out on fake media outlets! Fake Media stations should lose their REAL operating licenses!!!!!!
What’s with the CIA? They should have thrown the fake spook report back in McCain’s face!!!
Are they professionals or idiots?
I guess they’re professional idiots just like everyone else in the federal government back in DC.
If the Clintons didn’t use them, they have to not only be false, but easily proven false.
It appears Idiots !
