BuzzFeed released a bizarre text exchange between BuzzFeed Editor-in-ChiefBen Smithand an aide to 2020 Democratic presidential candidateKamala Harris, Thursday, during which the aide made a long complaint about a BuzzFeed writer’s mild criticism of Harris.
After BuzzFeed reporterKatherine Millertweeted, “Hard to know if last night harmed or helped Warren, but think all can come together and agree a debate highlight was Warren telling Kamala Harris no about banning Trump from Twitter then just continuing with her point in the manner of shrugging off a Greenpeace clipboard person,” the Harris aide sent an angry message to Smith.
“hey i have talked to her directly a few times when she’s tweeted out stuff like this, and i told her i was glad she deleted this tweet, but this kind of stuff is just a really horrible look for you guys. frankly, it’s whiteness manifest,” the aide proclaimed. “if kamala shrugged off a warren critique of how she wasn’t with her on Facebook, we’d get raked and she would get lauded as taking on corporate power. the blithe mockery here of kamala, while lauding warren’s style, is just not up to par. i say this to you just to be super frank and because i really like your guys’ work, the platform, and your reporters. we work well together across the board. but this is a bit problematic.”
