BuzzFeed is gonna BuzzFeed.
In other news, water is still wet.
Would appear BuzzFeed’s Anthony Cormier has finally figured out the Steele Dossier was probably not a document that should have been taken the least bit seriously.

Or maybe he hasn’t figured it out.
From The Daily Caller:
The Steele dossier is a “f**ked-up document,” one of BuzzFeed’s top reporters said at a journalism symposium Saturday.
Anthony Cormier defended BuzzFeed’s decision to publish the dossier, while admitting that more needs to be known about the origins of the salacious document.
“That f**ked-up document,” Cormier said of the dossier at the event, held Saturday at the University of California, Berkeley.
The Washington Times first flagged Cormier’s remarks.
“I’m going to say that. It was a f**ked-up document. I think we need to know more about where it came from. Why it is. What it means,” said Cormier, a Pulitzer Prize winner.

Defending publishing a f**ked up document moments after you call it f**ked up.
When did BuzzFeed go alt-right?

This is BuzzFeed we’re talking about.
“But I still defend the right and decision to publish it because I believe in radical transparency."
Right, that's why @BuzzFeed waited until right after that unthinkable election result to publish it.

But is was a sacred scroll of theirs for so long. He should ask his 'sources' feeding him disinfo what's up.
