The Buzzfeed dossier was garbage, and in multiple places contained verifiably untrue "facts".
Despite CNN's reporting - which in one story referenced Buzzfeed and it's inaccurate dossier 15 times - other news agencies have indicated that Trump was never briefed on the matter.
Fake news, built on fake news. CNN was less irresponsible than Buzzfeed, but both were irresponsible and published inaccurate "facts". I also think that CNN's pool reporter should have been tossed out of the room for interrupting at the press conference. He's not entitled to a question.
And lastly, Obama attacked Fox News as an entity many times, including blaming bars playing Fox News as one of the reasons Hillary lost. Turnabout is fair play, especially with the dubious rumor mongering.
I thought it would be "but Hillary..." but instead it was a "but Obama..."
Trump has basically taken the dial on media cynicism and ratcheted it up tenfold.
As a result, people don't know what to believe and just don't care anymore.
The proof will be in the pudding, so to speak. Will job creation continue to rise or accelerate under Trump? If so, he gets a second term. If not, someone else is elected president. I think it's as simple as that. In the meantime, I hope he doesn't screw things up too much, and will try to reserve
judgement, but it's hard.
In the meantime, I suspect the rich will get much richer. The middleclasss, working class, and poor will get shafted, but we will all be told "it's better this way" or "it's Obamas fault".
Ok, queue the "but Hillary " responses....
