Buzz Feed news publishes the false tips which led to dead ends. But what they published for the dossier was the influencing document. It influenced high state officials and decision makers at highest level. According to Ben Smith he writes that in democracy shielding the public is overwhelming.
The reason for suppressing such news is a wrong precise for journalism. Other media personals together with Donald Trump have highly criticized for the publishing of such dossier by Buzz Feed. The dossier included lurid accusation and salacious comments against new President Donald Trump.
The report had circulated for many months in the hands of reports and journalists. It came to light to the public when CNN reported that briefing of the document has been received by Trump and Barack Obama. Intelligence briefing was sanctioned. After CNN report on briefing Ben Smith says that as it was on wide circulation he published the dossier.
Buzz Feed and CNNs report were dismissed and considered it as fake news by incoming administration of Donald Trump. Smith says that no one should fall and get interrupted in such issues which make news and media civil war and creates disturbances due to unreasonable debate and transparency.
