Sharyl Attkisson and Buzzfeed: Unheard Request for Misinterpretation Correction

On 9 September 2018, Sharyl openly showed her dissatisfaction with Buzzfeed on Twitter. A Buzzfeed reporter named Tasneem Nashrulla apparently contacted Sharyl about her Media Bias chart that she didn't hesitate to call 'so sloppy that it was particularly remarkable.'

And Tasneem, being a senior reporter, didn't seem respectable as she had only contacted Sharyl after publishing the article. To make things unpredictably worse, Buzzfeed actually had the audacity to refuse Sharyl's requests to make important corrections.

Sharyl is pretty much not the kind of person to just sit and watch so she didn't waste any time to unveil the uncharacteristic behavior of Buzzfeed in general.

Sharyl had asked Buzzfeed to correct the misimpressions the article had given, putting forward the false implication that she had used InfoWars to develop her chart. She had also particularly pointed out that the InfoWars link that was included was among a series of links at the bottom of her article.

The aim was to give people the freedom to consult different views than hers as the links included alternate media bias charts as well. But Buzzfeed said they weren't changing anything in the article because quoting,

The fact is you linked to a conspiracy theory website.

All in all, Buzzfeed just disregarded the important corrections and acted like unprofessional, which had a lot of people questioning their subscription to the channel. People in the comments added more to Buzzfeed's impetuous act stating that they were only ready to sprinkle more gossips than actual facts.
