Media buys into Russian scheme to delegitimize election

President-elect Donald J. Trump left One World Trade Center after a meeting on Friday.
U.S. intelligence agencies presented their unanimous conclusions to Donald J. Trump, bringing the leaders of these agencies face to face with their most vocal skeptic, the president-elect.
As pointed out below, they were not so much trying to help Trump as they were trying to make Clinton a weaker President when she won.  In that regard, she aided them greatly by being a poor candidate with a record that made her suspect without their interference.  

But if the Russians goal was to delegitimize the election they have no better ally than the liberal media and the intelligence agencies who published this report.  By attacking Trump and his honestly won victory and not focusing on Clinton's own weaknesses they are acting like Russia wants them to act.
