<p>Early Wednesday night, BuzzFeed News editor in chief Ben Smith conducted his first interview since his outlet irresponsibly published an unsubstantiated dossier concerning President-elect Donald Trump. Needless to say, Smith failed miserably on MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>MTP Daily</em>.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Over the course of a roughly ten-minute debate, Smith was annihilated by host Chuck Todd, who chastised him for pushing<strong> &ldquo;an untruth&rdquo;</strong> and/or <strong>&ldquo;fake news,&rdquo; </strong>which is equivalent of <strong>&ldquo;a false birth certificate&rdquo; </strong>under the pathetic guise of <strong>&ldquo;transparency.&rdquo;</strong></p>
