Your point is good, but this is not the point of Trent’s article. If that had been the point of Trent’s article, I would have noded and agreed. Your point, in fact, has never been made by any pro-Trump or anti-opposition politician or publication. Instead they have decided to call CNN a “fake news source,” which is a ridiculous conclusion in this case.
My point is best explained in my post here: https://bullshit.ist/reporting-on-the-existence-of-a-document-is-not-the-same-as-endorsing-its-claims-7d14255b4e2a#.f0ngj8j9k
