Very Ironic: Obama Administration Blames Liberal Media for Ignoring Russia Hacking and Focusing on Leaked Documents

From NBC News’ piece [1] questioning why Obama wasn’t strong with Russia on hacking allegations:

An administration official, in turn, criticized the news media for focusing more on the leaked documents than on the Russian covert operation that hacked into political entities to steal the documents.

Administration officials pointed out that the day the intelligence assessment was made public was the same day a tape was leaked revealing Trump’s lewd conversation with Billy Bush. Eleven days later, at an October press conference, Obama was not asked a single question about the Russian hacks.
