Twitter Weighs in on Buzzfeed/State Dept. Fight

Buzzfeed’s Michael Hastings had a few questions for State Department spokesman Philippe Reines yesterday and they were not received well. Hastings asked about the handling of the diary kept by fallen Ambassador Chris Stevens. Reines had previously criticized CNN for releasing the details of the diary, which indicated that Stevens had feared a terrorist attack. WaPo’s Erik Wemple has documented their feud here.

When Hastings sent Reines an email on the matter, things got ugly. We’ve storified their fight complete with Twitter reaction.
