The Blaze:

CNN issued a statement Wednesday defending the accuracy of its reporting after President-elect Donald Trump refused to take a question from one of the network’s reporters earlier in the day at a press conference.


At his press conference, Trump criticized outlets reporting on an unverified dossier claiming Russia has compromising information about him.


CNN reported that a two-page synopsis of the dossier was used to brief both President Barack Obama and President-elect Trump. CNN did not detail the allegations in the full dossier and reported that that the claims were unverified. The dossier, CNN reported, was compiled by a “former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible.”


BuzzFeed, meanwhile, published the full 35-page dossier while acknowledging that they had not corroborated anything contained within.


The lurid allegations in the document published by BuzzFeed were denied by Trump.



Fighting back against the fakers.

NBC says its "intelligence" sources say Trump was not briefed, although the "briefers" had the two page document  only for backup to show types of disinformation out there...


Seems someone in the intelligence community is in a world of hurt for leaking.
