Here we go again:
Buzzfeed stands by their story, and even sound cocky-confident about it. Leopold has filed a FOIA request to find out about how Carr's response was constructed.
Many on far-Left have quieted down (they are very skeptical of anything coming from "unnamed sources", that reminds them of the Judy Miller fiasco). The other day they were "jubilantly self-righteous", to quote Seth Abramson; and, now, they have stopped, and are taking in what Buzzfeed is saying.
Of course the Right are skeptical, but they don't count. They are in another epistemic universe, and I just treat what they say as like Alex Jones material.
