PLOT TWIST: Brian Stelter triggers epic blue-check on blue-check Twitter SMACKDOWN

Spread the love

Well, this is quite the plot twist…

CNN’s Brian Stelter shared this quote from AP editor Sally Buzbee saying that the Trump-Russia probes have “gone on so long that it’s difficult to be able to assess what in this investigation is truly serious and what is not serious. So that is one thing journalists struggle with a little bit”:

AP editor @SallyBuzbee: The Trump-Russia probes have "gone on so long that it's difficult to be able to assess what in this investigation is truly very serious and what is not as serious. So that is one thing that journalists struggle with a little bit…"

That’s a pretty honest take, right?

WRONG! Check out the hate from fellow blue-checks aimed directly at Buzbee:

Former Hillary staffer Adam Parkhomenko:

If she really believes that, she needs to resign immediately. She’s admitting to not being able to do her job. There are plenty of journalists who do know what is going on. Hire them. https://t.co/yfXNZNKOTd

Josh Marshall, TPM:

not a great day for the ap https://t.co/lppW9lMesY

Soledad O’Brien:

Absolute load of BS from the AP. The investigation actually hasn’t gone on so long—compared to others. Ugh. Please can we not go into 2019 with crappy journalism. https://t.co/fnasKYQWUf

Eric Boehlert:

wow. that strikes me as a very, very strange take from her https://t.co/aYWsiWw6It

Joan Walsh:

Note to @SallyBuzbee: It's ALL serious. https://t.co/5t2sQLNOYO

Natasha Bertrand, The Atlantic:

The Mueller investigation isn’t even 2 years old. Whitewater went on for nearly 8 years. Iran contra, nearly 7. And every part of it has been serious. This isn’t hard. https://t.co/hPyURenwRy

Obama bro Brian Beutler:

I don't recall the AP professing confusion about Benghazi, a made up scandal that literally went nowhere. Meanwhile, Trump's campaign chairman, deputy campaign chairman, national security adviser, personal lawyer, and several others have all been convicted of felonies. https://t.co/e5GROcPAr6

Matthew Yglesias:

A good summary is that the Trump/Russia probe has so far resulted in criminal convictions or guilty pleas from the president’s campaign manager, deputy campaign manager, national security advisor, and personal attorney as well as several lesser figures. https://t.co/13AsJsiyRf

Former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti:

If @SallyBuzbee can’t figure out what’s important or serious about the Mueller investigation, she should enlist the help of people who can figure it out, as many other journalists do on a regular basis. It is a fast-paced investigation that has generated a lot of important news. https://t.co/sKqSPFnRV2

Former federal prosecutor Mimi Rocah:

Here’s a general rule of thumb @SallyBuzbee: if Mueller or anyone from DOJ says something, it’s serious because it’s based on facts & evidence. If @RudyGiuliani says it, it’s not serious because it’s most likely a lie. https://t.co/ZgtFxyRi1V

Jesus H. Christ on the rewrite desk, this person is an editor? https://t.co/8ZQa4WfaDf

We love it when they eat their own.
