Gutfeld Slams BuzzFeed's 'BS' Explanation for Publishing Trump Dossier
In his monologue on "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld ripped BuzzFeed for publishing unsubstantiated opposition research on President-elect Donald Trump's alleged ties to Russia.
Gutfeld noted that BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith defended the publishing of the documents and claimed that Americans had the right to see them because the dossier had been shown to high-level government officials.
Gutfeld said that explanation is "BS," arguing that BuzzFeed's decision to spread the unverified information was all about attracting eyeballs, getting clicks and selling ads, not transparency or honesty.
"By running with this Russian stuff, BuzzFeed enhances the chaos sown already by so much disinformation," Gutfeld said. "These days, thanks to a relentless overload from all sides, facts get lost in fiction - and no one provides backup to their feverish fantasies."
"Instead, weak minds demand that you prove them wrong. Meanwhile, Putin wins again, without even trying."
