Just FYI

There's a lot going on ... I'm not even sure which parts of the story are tied together.

FWIW I like Jake Tapper and I think he is an honest reporter. I'm curious to see how he untangles all of this.. one of the few guys on TV that I trust.

We have no knowledge if what has been reported by Buzzfeed are the actual memos or not. Nobody taking this seriously is using that as their basis.
Oh my God.

Read the CNN report that Galbreath posted in the first post.

The 2 page classified report was a summary of the damn memos that Buzzfeed published.

Yes, there is.

Reporting straight up that Hillary ran a child sex ring out of a pizza parlor vs. reporting that the police have informed her of an investigation into allegations of such a ring is very different.

The first is reporting a thing that never happened as if it actually did. The second is reporting a thing that actually happened with the caveat that there have been no arrests yet.

Trump's making too many enemies. People say "oh the press doesn't matter, they're irrelevant" but every time he calls out a reporter in a press conference they're going to pull in their circle tighter and tighter and concert their efforts. They'll have him tied up in crap like this every single day he's in office until it wears him out.

That's new and wasn't part of the article this morning. It has a note at the top that it's been edited to add information, and its mention of it acknowledges that the BF piece came out after the CNN article. CNN is pretty much saying on air as I'm typing that they consider it uncorroborated and not necessarily genuine. I don't know what to tell you, no one here has taken it seriously at all. The charges in the details of the actual summary document leaked to the press are damning absent any more detailed info.

The extensive vetting is the FBI and CIA looking at the material and accusations since August every day until the report, and only bringing it up to the level of an official memo now months later. The original article says they sought and found corroboration that the source was reliable and could be counted on for legitimate information.

Edit:
Repeated from OP. There was in the original piece a line about original mistrust of the former British intelligence operative too, but they had investigated him and his network to determine its reliability and found it to be a credible and reliable source.
Quote:
The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible.

You forgot to include this (it was the very next line, read a little further):

Quote:
At this point, CNN is not reporting on details of the memos, as it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations. But, in preparing this story, CNN has spoken to multiple high ranking intelligence, administration, congressional and law enforcement officials, as well as foreign officials and others in the private sector with direct knowledge of the memos.
Context!

Also, this is how the media responded to Buzzfeed:

I am just trying to understand what you are saying, not trying to be chippy - are you saying that the summary - the classified 2 page summary - was not a summary of the memos that Buzzfeed published?

No, it was not. It was reported that it was a summary of a document. Buzz Feed claims to have "the document" with no credibility that it is the actual document.

Put it this way, it's like saying you have a credible report from a credible sports reporter that the Patriots have a stolen copy of a team's playbook. Many NFL sources, and a few anonymous team officials confirm that it's true. Then Deadspin publishes "the stolen playbook" that's full of ******** fake plays and turns out to be a forgery. That doesn't impugn the actual story reported by the original source. If one of the sources publishes during the initial hours after Deadspin releases the story "Update: Deadspin has published the playbook, but we can't corroborate that it's the actual playbook" doesn't mean that everything in the original reporting is suspect and reliant on the later ******** put out by a bad source.

The BF "document" didn't come out until after the initial news. The initial news was in no way based on their claimed version of the "document" as the real thing.

Okay. So you think CNN, the New York Times, and others - have it wrong? What is the evidence for that?

I was admittedly behind the story, as it's continuing to develop. So I was seeking more information on Buzzfeed. But as of now, it just additional fodder. The appended report has more or less been corroborated. The memos Buzzfeed has published have not been. That is the basis for my comments.

PS, The Buzzfeed publication of the memos has nothing to do with the story. Unless it can be proven that those are the actual memos. Then, they would be part of the conversation. Why is this so hard for you? You seem really upset and unwilling to see the clear distinction and line of delineation.
