McClatchy: “A defamation suit brought against online news site BuzzFeed for its publishing of an intelligence dossier that alleges Kremlin ties to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been transferred to federal court.
The suit, brought by Cyprus-based tech mogul Aleksej Gubarev, was transferred Tuesday at BuzzFeed’s request from a local Florida court to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida in Miami.
Gubarev’s defamation suit against BuzzFeed demanded a response by Feb. 28, which has been extended. Since the lawsuit was filed, BuzzFeed has redacted Gubarev’s name from the document and apologized.”
In January Tapper and BuzzFeed both attacked pres-elect Trump in an unsubstantiated effort by expressing no compromising information.
Rush Limbaugh explains the plan, “CNN reports on the existence of the report but they don’t detail it. Jake Tapper, who wants to be known as one of the most highly respected journalists in the world, decides to start vomiting this stuff but he doesn’t get into details. That’s a signal for BuzzFeed to go ahead and release and publish all 35 pages and BuzzFeed does so while telling everybody that none of it has been verified.”
