Ha!

From all of us who have been defamed and libeled by this rag, Baruch hashem!

DOJ tells Buzzfeed to pound sand in hopes of avoiding libel lawsuit on dodgy Russia dossier

– The Washington Times – Wednesday, November 29, 2017

The Justice Department has rejected BuzzFeed’s argument in a pending libel lawsuit that its posting of the discredited Trump-Russia dossier and an accompanying story is protected speech.

In a filing in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., three Justice Department attorneys rebutted the news website’s stance it enjoys “fair reporting privilege” because the dossier was part of an FBI investigation.

The Justice Department’s declaration says that BuzzFeed’s Jan. 10 posting never cited any such probe and the dossier itself is not a government document.

BuzzFeed faces a separate, dossier-linked libel suit in Florida. The D.C. case involves BuzzFeed’s request for a judge to compel testimony from the FBI and possibly the national intelligence directorate on how they handled the dossier and what was told to President Trump.

The website’s aim is to prove that its dossier posting was part of accepted journalism practices when reporting on government investigations.

BuzzFeed, a mix of politics and pop culture edited by Ben Smith, is defending itself against a libel suit brought by Russian-born entrepreneur Aleksej Gubarev, chief of XBT Holdings and its popular internet hosting network Webzilla

    Horse crap. Buzfeed published that farcical baloney as a device to influence the election and then has the unmitigated gall to turn around and falsley accuse the Trump campaign of colluding with the Russians in that same endeavor. Pot, meet kettle.

    I was born at night but it wasn’t last night.
