Buzzfeed editor Ben Smith was the guest of CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday. Stelter and Smith had a lengthy exchange about their reporting on the unverified dossier stating that Russia has compromising information that can be used against President-elect Donald Trump.

Smith said he was “proud” that his organization published all of the details.


CNN also reported on this but was careful to distance itself from Buzzfeed last week.

Piers Morgan weighed in.
