Default Associated Press Corrects Big Falsehood In Four Trump-Russia Reports

For months the Trump hating lynch mob has breathlessly reported that all 17 intelligence agencies concluded the Russians are responsible for "hacking" our election as if each agency had independently investigated to reach that conclusion. Disputing the conclusion of all 17 agencies must betray a blind loyalty to Trump.

Oh wait, the AP and the NYT, models of impartial and rigorous journalistic practice have issued a "clarification".

Quote:
The Associated Press reported that all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Donald Trump,” the AP stated, citing four specific reports from as early as April that made the assertion. “That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies – the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency – and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all U.S. intelligence agencies.”

“Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment,” the statement concludes.
Of course the claim of all 17 agencies has been debunked for months but that doesn’t stop Trump haters from repeating it as gospel.

Quote:
The timing of both corrections is odd, since the facts of the claim have not changed since it began circulating in October of 2016, just before the presidential election, and the figure was clearly debunked as early as May of this year. Hillary Clinton used the large number to ridicule Trump on the campaign trail, and has reiterated the claim in recent months, along with other Democrats and members of the press.

So are you saying the FBI, the CIA and the NSA are wrong? Or are you simply concerned a news story was worded to make President Trump look slightly worse. If possible. And Nevermind, that was a rhetorical question, I already know the answer.

The FBI/CIA/NSA did the heavy lifting and collected/analyzed the intelligence. No intelligence agency in the 17 member US intelligence community disagreed with the assessment and conclusions presented in the classified report.

No disagreement/objections = consensus. That's how it works and has always worked.

Surly, FBI, CIA, and NSA total 3, not 17. That's not a was worded. That's an outright lie.

The real mystery is why so many LWNM and politicians knowingly spout these easily debunked lies, only to issue a retraction a week later.

That's revisionist thinking. AP knowingly lied. Hence the "correction".

But that was NOT how the media was reporting it...

BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION, a couple of agencies came to conclusions and the rest of the agencies, with no evidence they even lifted a finger, simply said "Looks good to me!"...

But the lying media (and lyin' Hillary Clinton) reported it as ALL 17 agencies conducted investigations themselves, and ALL 17 came to the same conclusions...

From October, 2016...USA Today...

Yes, 17 intelligence agencies really did say Russia was behind hacking

Quote:
Donald Trump’s claim that the United States has "no idea" who is behind recent email hacks is just not true.

The fact-checking website Politifact says Hillary Clinton is correct when she says 17 federal intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia is behind the hacking.

“We have 17, 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyber attacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin. And they are designed to influence our election. I find that deeply disturbing,” Clinton said during Wednesday's presidential debate in Las Vegas.

Trump pushed back, saying that Clinton and the United States had “no idea whether it is Russia, China or anybody else.”

But Clinton is correct. On Oct. 7, the Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a joint statement on behalf of the U.S. Intelligence Community. The USIC is made up of 16 agencies, in addition to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
Now pay close attention to this next paragraph...He's saying what YOU'VE just said...

Quote:
While the agencies all issued the statement together, Trump spokesman Steven Cheung told Politifact he took Clinton to be implying each agency came to the conclusion independently, a situation Cheung finds "unlikely."
And now we learn that this is correct...and Politifact was full of sh*t when they said Clinton was "correct" that all 17 agencies came to conclusions...they did no such thing...

Using your very own words, they just ran with the "heavy lifting" from just a couple of other agencies...

Did the other agencies even say "looks good to me"? It's my understanding that most ignored it.

The consensus of 17 intelligence agencies narrative always seemed silly. The "not trusting the intelligence community" arguments were also weak. The exaggerated number 17 is counter productive.

So once again the Trump disiples are far more concerned with the president's fragile ego/image than the Country.

I think, at the very least, it suggests they are more interested in finding the factual truth. Facts matter.

What exactly is your interest?

BTW, what fragile/ego image? The President takes on all challengers full face. Publically. Directly. Succinctly.

When did it become "Presidential" to hide behind deceitful surrogates telling half truths and spin on the talk show circuits?

Oh wait,,,;2009.

Sorry, my bad.
