This whole Russia thing is a great example of media bias. When it is fake news on the left, it is report and verify later. Contrast with Hillary's birther claims: basically turned into "Romney bad."
I wonder which outlet will be the first to mention 4Chan. They could just possibly save some credibility by admitting they've been hoaxed.
Starting to leak at the seams at both ends of the spectrum, cnn and buzzfeed might want to get in front of this before it gets out of hand.
4chan Claims It Invented the Trump Golden Showers Story
The forum alleged an anonymous user invented Tuesday’s bombshell about Donald Trump and Russian prostitutes—and then passed it onto a Republican operative. But there’s a weak stream of proof.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...ers-story.html"leak" lol, punnyDid 4Chan Troll The CIA?
On Tuesday night, BuzzFeed News published an explosive, yet completely unverified, dossier alleging that President-elect Donald Trump engaged in a whole host of, shall we say unusual, sexual activities in Moscow. Matt already wrote about the basics of the report and the blackmail threat, so I'm not going to delve into that.

Just listened to most of the presser.
Man, Trump hit about 35 home runs, not just one. He totally $#@!ing DESTROYED the Russian story. I mean $#@!ing OBLITERATED it.
And now for proof, Buzzfeed and CNN is getting scorched on social media.
I have to admit, he was pretty $#@!ing awesome handling the press $#@!s. Wasn't sure what to expect, but that was a prety good performance. CNN is licking its own taint right now. And the whole "multi part" question thing might go away, Trump called that $#@! out, which is about time. Ask your QUESTION $#@!tard, not make a speech and ask 34 fifteen page questions. LOL!
Best part of the entire thing: "$#@! off CNN you can't have a question." LOL!!!

I can't wait to see a replay of it. I heard bits and pieces of it live on the radio. I've wanted to see a press conference like that for, oh, I don't know, FOREVER!!!!!!!
No mainstream media reported that stuff. Yet they're suckers for reporting it.
lol, Trumpkins don't even have to win to win!
The $#@! you CNN was glorious.
The Ministry of Truth is now backpedaling. "Nuh uhhhhh, it was Buzzfeed!"
https://www.yahoo.com/news/cnn-says-...--finance.htmlCNN, the news division of Time Warner Inc, said on Wednesday that its decision to publish "carefully sourced reporting" on unverified intelligence documents concerning Donald Trump is "vastly different than BuzzFeed's decision to publish unsubstantiated memos."
CNN's statement came after President-elect Trump called the news outlet "fake news" and refused to take a CNN reporter's questions at a news conference.
BuzzFeed on Tuesday published a story about a dossier of documents that it said were unverified and "potentially unverifiable" allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives.
Included in the documents were claims that Russian intelligence had compromising information about Trump.
A BuzzFeed spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment.
Throughout the news conference, Trump decried a CNN report on Tuesday that said U.S. intelligence officials had presented Trump with claims that Russian operatives said they had compromising personal and financial information about the president-elect.
Georgetown professor Michael Eric Dyson called on white people to maintain an “individual reparations account” to make donations to black individuals as retribution for racism in America.
The plan, put forth in Dyson’s upcoming book, Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America, suggests that white people set aside funds to donate to groups like the United Negro College Fund or to pay “the black person who cuts your grass double what you might ordinarily pay.”
“Look, if it doesn’t cost you anything, you’re not really engaging in change; you’re engaging in convenience,” Dyson told the New York Times Magazine last week. “I’m asking you to do stuff you wouldn’t ordinarily do. I’m asking you to think more seriously and strategically about why you possess what you possess.”
“You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician–this is what you, an individual, conscientious, ‘woke’ citizen can do,” he continued.
Dyson, a regular contributor to MSNBC, said he expects his book to be well-received by white people who are “deeply empathetic to the struggles of minorities.”
“These are the ones who ask me, ‘What can I do, as a white person?’” he said.
Out-$#@!ing-standing, Mr. President.

Aw gee, guess that means the gerbil & gay midget story ain't gonna make it.
Also, not too much in the news about Clock Boy's daddy having his suit dismissed.
A Texas judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed last year by the father of “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed against several conservatives.
Dallas County district court judge Maricela Moore dismissed the suit on Monday, announced the Center for Security Policy (CSP), one of the defendants in the case.
Mohamed Mohamed, “Clock Boy’s” father, filed the suit in September against CSP, its executive vice president, The Blaze, Inc., its founder Glenn Beck, Fox News, and several conservative pundits, including Ben Ferguson and Ben Shapiro, all of whom criticized his son.
Mohamed gained international attention and a White House invite when he was arrested in Sept. 2015 after he took a clock that closely resembled a timed bomb to his Irving, Tex. high school. One of Mohamed’s teachers referred him to school administrators, and the then-14-year-old was briefly arrested.

Romney is a pimp. He never could have outfought the liberal media. But I didn't know until this day that it was Trump who would destroy the left all along.

An interesting read here from Greenwald
January 11 2017, 9:35 a.m.
IN JANUARY, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decadelong escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.
This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”
Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.
The serious dangers posed by a Trump presidency are numerous and manifest. There are a wide array of legitimate and effective tactics for combatting those threats: from bipartisan congressional coalitions and constitutional legal challenges to citizen uprisings and sustained and aggressive civil disobedience. All of those strategies have periodically proven themselves effective in times of political crisis or authoritarian overreach.

Oh lord, 4 years of this bull$#@!.
Even MSNBC is throwing Buzzfeed under the bus
“You talk about context and you talk about putting responsibility on the readers,” the Chuck Toddt stated. “But at the same time, don’t you have responsibility of not spreading false information? Are you knowingly spreading false information?”
Smith followed that up by invoking fake news, which led Todd to fire back.
“I know this was not your intent,” Todd said. “I’ve known you a long time, but you just published fake news.”
Smith responded that it was unfair and that he thinks “people love to throw the term fake news around.”
I'm waiting for 'the russians convinced buzzfeed to run the story to make us look bad!'
The mainstream media is primed for trolling. They dislike Trump so much that they'll take any lead that makes him look bad
Where were all these testy reporters questioning Obama and HRC and Kerry and Gore...Trump is punching back on that...
Yeah, their selective outrage is good comedy.
