  • Media firestorm over Trump-Russia report publication

    AFP - 01/11/2017

    Many media outlets and analysts joined Trump in denouncing the decision by BuzzFeed to release the report, which had been circulating in Washington for weeks.

    “I think it was incredibly irresponsible.” said Dan Kennedy, a journalism professor at Northeastern University.

    “These allegations are completely unverified, and as BuzzFeed acknowledged some are unverifiable.”

    Kennedy said the decision could further erode public trust in media after a bruising campaign in which news organizations were pilloried by Trump and his supporters and during which “fake news” became an issue.

    “It is unfortunate because this is not ‘fake news,’ it is real documents,” Kennedy said. “And it’s not ‘the media,’ it’s BuzzFeed.”
