Obama White House Calls BuzzFeed Story News

White Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked on Wednesday about BuzzFeed‘s unverified reporting on Russia having compromising information on President-elect Donald Trump.

Earnest told the reporter that President Obama is “certainly aware of the news reports and read many of them.”

Earnest’s willingness to call the report “news” runs counter to President-elect Trump, who called the reporting “fake news” at a press conference earlier on Wednesday.
