James Clapper Confronts CNN's Narrative... While on CNN

CNN’s Jim Acosta said yesterday:

The other thing that was fake news coming from President Trump is he said, “Well, I keep hearing it is 17 intelligence agencies who said Russia interfered in the election. I think it is only three or four.” Where does that number come from? Where does this three or four number come from?

Well, it turns out that it was President Obama’s own director of national intelligence, James Clapper, who gave Trump the 3-4 number. He confronted CNN’s lack of journalistic integrity … while on CNN! Clapper said:

How this narrative got out there about 17 components being involved, I don’t know. But the report itself makes it clear that it was the three agencies plus the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that put this intelligence community assessment together.

Is this where the hashtag “#FakeNews” comes in?
