What? Breitbart sides with Micheal Moore over BuzzFeed
BuzzFeed’s reflexive defense of The State overall, and Obama’s government specifically, targeted the wrong person this week. Usually the left-wing snark site is battling the right on The Government’s behalf. But this time it was filmmaker Michael Moore, and BuzzFeed wasted no time in going after him with a piece that would eventually require a ton of back-filling and one major correction.
In BuzzFeed’s original post pushing back against Moore’s claim he had to “rescue” Palestinian filmmaker Emad Burnat (who flew into town to attend Sunday’s Oscar ceremony) from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, BuzzFeed’s Tessa Stuart noted twice at the beginning of her post that “multiple” anonymous sources claimed Moore lied about the incident.
