Re: Mueller Debunks Buzzfeed Story

I like how Mueller will correct the media when they misreport something significant about the investigation. It lends a bit more believability to the reports that AREN’T corrected.

Re: Mueller Debunks Buzzfeed Story

I have heard of Buzzfeed. It's a website, right?

Is it like a tabloid whacktard site?

I guess I could Google. I've had a long day.

Re: Mueller Debunks Buzzfeed Story

While people should exercise caution with the Buzzfeed article (I stated as much early today), those who call "fake news" should also back up on this idea that Mueller is debunking the whole story. The special counsel's spokesperson did not say the story was false, he said parts of it were inaccurate.

Settle down everyone.

Yes it is both. it is a tabloid whacktard site.

Overall, we rate Buzzfeed Left-Center Biased due to story selection that tends to favor the left and Mixed for factual reporting based on poor sourcing and a few failed fact checks

they are basically a lib trash site similar to daily kos or mediamatters.

"BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate," said special counsel spokesman Peter Carr in a statement.

They're not denying it completely, just saying it's not accurate. So now we have to wonder what the truth is precisely. Major blunder for Buzzfeed. :shock:

Only if those reports stated Mueller's "team" as the source - few alleged leaks of that nature have surfaced.

With that..... what is really scary is HOW quickly the OSC. First of, what I recall within 24hours to refute accusations. I wonder what was the importance and MORE so the RUSH to correct buzzfeed? Odd dont you think?

It's on them for being so friken gullible. Cohen would have gotten off scot-free if he had that kind of dirt on Trump.

They didn't even consider the fact that there was NO MENTION of it in Mueller's vs Cohen sentencing memo.

Two years of TDS has corrupted their brains.

Re: Mueller Debunks Buzzfeed Story


So these misfits are conceding... How interesting.
How about they divulge the names of sources now....

I think we need to have a special investigation if Buzzfeed refuses to cooperate.

No the people that need to settle down are the people that spew this crap on the forum day in and day out and as usual once again for the 1 millionth time
it is a no go fake news pile of crap. TDS at it's most extreme. these people need professional help or more puppies and playdoh.

I agree because whoever leaked the information is giving out classified seal investigation information
which pretty much ruins the investigation in total.

Because it had nothing to do with the morons in the control of the house going off on perjury investigations and impeachment hearings.

Thanks for clarify my following post this makes MORE sense.

ONLY Topics that pertain the source of the OSC is what gets refuted..... interesting thoughts As lets face it very if NO leaks are coming From OSC...... But Hellva lot of other leaks from who knows where?

Do you really think Cohen would have been sentenced to 3 years if he actually had that kind of dirt on Trump ?

Hell, there's NO MENTION of it in Mueller's vs Cohen sentencing memo. You guys have got to be more objective, and realize that the MSM is playing you for chumps
They want ratings and then dont give a **** who they lie to

Re: Mueller Debunks Buzzfeed Story

Welp there goes Buzzfeed’s credibility. But anyone find it odd that mueller put out a statement? Have they ever done this after other reporting? I can’t recall. I don’t think they have, though. Very interesting.

Why care what Trump's haters do? They're all losers anyway...
This news is good for our country.
