You might think that—given the chance to chide the star of a competing network—CNN would have called out MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow over her failed, overhyped “scoop” on Donald Trump’s taxes.

Outrage everywhere because House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) had the nerve to tell people they should prioritize their budget. On CNN, he spoke about healthcare with Alisyn Camerota:

“Well, we’re getting rid of the individual mandate. We’re getting rid of those things that people said that they don’t want,” Chaffetz...

Discussing the overnight resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, CNN’s David Gregory managed this morning to work in a broad swipe at the president. Gregory claimed that “the fledgling foreign policy in the Trump administration [has] been a disaster.”

It’s one fabulously nasty mess both CNN and Buzzfeed created for themselves.

Buzzfeed decided to publish an unsubstantiated dossier full of all kinds of licentious information about president-elect Trump, particularly that he has “deep ties to Russia”. CNN then ran with the Buzzfeed story.
