Buzzfeed released a statement Friday defending writer Jason Leopold and the report he co-authored alleging that President Trump directed his former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress amid criticism.
CNN’s Oliver Darcy wrote a story saying that Leopold is a reporter with “a checkered past,” noting that the reporter’s credibility has been questioned over alleged plagiarism in a 2002 article for Salon and for writing in 2006 that Karl Rove would be indicted, citing people with knowledge of discussions.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Our response to CNN’s — and all other reports — questioning the integrity of the reporters behind BuzzFeed News’ latest bombshell investigation,” the company wrote on Twitter.
“Jason is one of the best journalists in the world, and he has proven it, with reporting that’s been months ahead of developments in the Mueller investigation. His and Anthony’s work has been proven to be true at every turn – and it’s interesting that these personal attacks are surfacing only now, as the facts become more dangerous for the individuals involved. BuzzFeed News stands by this story 100%.”
