Suppose this entire thing actually is fake news:
How exactly will DJT and the MSM respond in the next few days?
Not only did CNN/Whatever run the stories, but now Buzzfeed has a legit case of Liabel against them from DJT and the other people mentioned in the article.
Thats not even including the Intel report probably being discarded/taken with a yuge grain of salt due to association with the buzzfeed story.
This is seriously playing out exactly like a Pizzagate thread.
Literally the same argument people used about Pizzagate even if they thought it wasn't true.
Even if this is fake, I don't think people are going to let this meme go away. The stain has already set
I'd be lying if I said I didn't find it absolutely hilarious
The guy gets sued for libel. He loses the libel case, but is freed from responsibility for spreading it to media. I think due to free speech, other Swedes correct me if I'm wrong.
However since the footballer won the libel case, he can use it as basis to sue media that spread/is spreading the story.
Sharing /pol/ screencaps is about as credible as saying "my uncle works at nintendo and the switch is gonna have a fleshlight attachment so you can fuck palutena."
They're not comparable
In any case, it's Buzzfeed of all places that goes belly up, it's a win/win.
This is fucking mad.
If this is real: we are confirmed living in a massive joke.
If this is fake: we are confirmed living in a massive joke.
I thought this was just dumb and fake and would go out with a whimper, but it's going out with a bang either way. Even if it does nothing, part of me wants it to be real just to have this be written in history books as undisputed fact in the future.
From now on, can we please ban our Intelligence Officials from using the words "may", "could" or "possibly" when releasing any statements ? I'm really tired of them releasing statements that basically don't mean anything. When you don't show any hard proof, don't say anything. Their a complete joke at this point.
Russia May have Compromising Information on Trump, Russia could be behind the hack of the DNC .... Yeah ok.
And maybe if you shut your mouths one week before the election about having possibly incriminating evidence about Hillary's Emails we wouldn't have Donald Trump as our president.
b. libel is debatable at this point, Herr Cheeto is a public figure and they never explicitly said "he did this", it's "we have reports of him doing this"
