Accuracy in Media

The New York Times issued a correction of one of its pieces on Russia, where it claimed that all seventeen intelligence agencies in the U.S. agreed that Russia orchestrated cyberattacks to help Donald Trump get elected.

In fact, it was four agencies that agreed on the assessment.

Big difference, New York Times. 17-4=13 agencies that didn’t agree with the newspaper’s report back on June 25, 2017.

    Um…it is not that 13 agencies DIDN’T AGREE WITH THE NEWSPAPER’S REPORT…it was just that of the 17 agencies within the Intelligence Community…outfits like “Coast Guard Intelligence” and the “Drug Enforcement Administration” don’t really have any specific expertise in the issue at hand. Organizations like the CIA, NSA etc did.

    Point is though, for about a YEAR we were told “17 intelligence agencies” despite it being SPECIFICALLY debunked by Clapper in Congress. To be fair, it wouldn’t be the first time Clapper lied under oath in front of congress (see also Iraq/WMD’s) but that’s neither here nor there.
