Meme police: Is BuzzFeed News taking over from CNN as Twitter hall monitor?

BuzzFeed News took a lot of flak a couple of weeks ago for its big scoop on the Robert Mueller investigation that compelled Mueller’s office to release a statement saying the story was not accurate, so the site has some work to do to rebuild its credibility.

Taking over from CNN’s Oliver Darcy to police Twitter content does not seem to be the way to do that, unfortunately.

Credit to BuzzFeed News for confirming that this is indeed an altered photo and the women of Congress did not wear Klan robes to the State of the Union address. But maybe a little more research was in order?

Hands up … who thinks BuzzFeed would have published this story if the Klan robes were on Republican members of Congress? Anyone?
