Newly released emails belonging to CNN anchor Jake Tapper show him blasting BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith for publishing Trump’s dossier.
“I think your move makes the story less serious and credible[.] I think you damaged its impact,” Tapper wrote to Smith.
Tapper claimed the dossier was “uncollegial” and “irresponsible” since “no one has verified this stuff.”
Smith was unapologetic in his decision to post the dossier and admitted that “of course” he new who authored the work, indicating former MI6 agent Christopher Steele.
This is really just an instance of CNN sounding off on anyone who tries to show support for Trump.
