The New York Times has added a correction to a June 25 article which claimed that all 17 US intelligence agencies agree that Russia was behind the attacks on the Democratic National Committee with the goal of getting Donald Trump elected.
The update to the article came on Thursday, four days after the article was published and shared widely. The correction asserts that while they had claimed all 17 intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia had orchestrated the hacks during the election, when in reality it was just four.
The full correction and admission that they had published fake news:
“A White House Memo article on Monday about President Trump’s deflections and denials about Russia referred incorrectly to the source of an intelligence assessment that said Russia orchestrated hacking attacks during last year’s presidential election. The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community.”
Failed candidate Hillary Clinton had also echoed this false claim in May.
It was a rough day for the Times, as hundreds of staffers had also walked out of the offices in protest of impending layoffs of copy editors.

The Times has long claimed to be impartial and unbiased, while holding clear resentment for our president. The newspaper recently stood by their funding of a controversial version of Julius Caesar, in which an actor dressed as Trump is brutally assassinated by senators. While Delta and Bank of America pulled their funding, the newspaper proudly defended the publication.
“As an institution that believes in free speech for the arts as well as the media, we support the right of the Public Theater to stage the production as they chose,” the Times said in a statement.
In June, FBI Director James Comey confirmed during his testimony before senate that the newspaper had published fake news about the president while claiming to have information from an anonymous source regarding contact between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
“In the main, it was not true,” Comey said of their report.
The failing @nytimes writes total fiction concerning me. They have gotten it wrong for two years, and now are making up stories & sources!

Trump has previously accused the Gray Lady of writing “total fiction,” and they continue to prove him right week after week.

Trump At Turnberry: Obama Got Hacked By The Russians, ‘A Lot Of Bad Things Happened During His Administration’
Director of national intelligence Dan Coats stated in a press conference that federal government “digital infrastructure” is “literally under attack” by Russians.
But President Trump is responding to the situation that occurred during the Obama administration, when the White House and FBI allowed more than 50 million citizen records to be hacked by the Russians.
“We are upgrading things at a very rapid pace” Trump said in Turnberry in a between-rounds interview with CBS News. Trump makes it clear that the Obama administration allowed FBI information to be hacked.
“A lot of bad things happened during his administration,” Trump said of Obama, whose presidency bears the mark of a massive hack by the Russians.
This follows reporting that former president Barack Obama’s entire FBI catalogue of facial recognition and fingerprint software was hacked by one of their own contractors using Russian code. The FBI database was accessible to Fusion GPS during the presidential election.
