Unverified Document About Trump Prompts Journalism Ethics Questions
BuzzFeed on Tuesday published a 35-page document that contained explosive and unsubstantiated allegations about ties between President-elect Donald Trump and Russia.
BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief defended the decision as “the job of reporters in 2017.”
NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik ( @davidfolkenflik) talks with Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about BuzzFeed's decision to publish, while other news organizations have been more skeptical.
