NBC raises eyebrows over $400 million relationship with BuzzFeed
NBCUniversal invested $400 million in BuzzFeed and the two companies have a “strategic partnership,” raising eyebrows about why the Peacock Network isn’t more transparent when covering the controversial website.
NBC News and MSNBC fawned over BuzzFeed’s now-debunked report claiming President Trump directed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress before the office of the special counsel released its rare statement.
CNN, MSNBC MENTIONED TRUMP IMPEACHMENT NEARLY 200 TIMES FRIDAY BEFORE BUZZFEED REPORT WAS DISCREDITED
A search of transcripts from both MSNBC and NBC News didn’t turn up any mention of the investment when the news organization covered BuzzFeed’s discredited bombshell. While transcripts aren’t always 100 percent accurate, it’s clear the relationship was not disclosed with any consistency.
