Last night, Buzzfeed dropped an unverified report on their website that sent social media to another galaxy, it was bad!
Buzzfeed’s report alleged President-elect Donald Trump had been caught in compromising positions with far-fetched accusations but nothing that was verified and even had a disclaimer that basically said some of the material in the article might not be true, but they were trying to verify.

Russia responded on Wednesday morning to this Buzzfeed report calling it total nonsense and they have no such file of compromising positions.
How do you verify while you drop allegations on someone? That’s not real journalism!
The Kremlin said on Wednesday it was “total nonsense” that Russian officials had assembled a file of compromising information on U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.
Two U.S. officials said on Tuesday evening that the heads of four U.S. intelligence agencies had last week presented Trump with classified documents which included unverified claims that Russian intelligence operatives had compromising information about him.
Addressing reporters on a conference call, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the dossier containing the claims was a hoax which had been dreamt up to further harm U.S.-Russia relations, which are already at their lowest level since the Cold War.
“It is an attempt to damage our bilateral relations. It is pulp fiction,” said Peskov, who also roundly dismissed as false assertions in the dossier that he himself was heavily involved in running a Russian campaign to undermine defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“You have to react to this with a certain humor, but there’s also a sad side to this. Hysteria is being whipped up to maintain a political witch hunt.”
Peskov said the Kremlin did not engage in compiling compromising dossiers on anyone and was focused on building relations with Russia’s foreign partners instead.
On Tuesday evening, Trump dismissed the reports that Russia had compromising information on him. “FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT!” he wrote in a Twitter post.
CNN ran with the story which has done more damage to their brand as they try to destroy Trump more and more. I hope the Trump campaign stops sending over surrogates to that station. They don’t respect Trump, and they aren’t going to report stories factually, so stop sending surrogates over there.
