Why Is the Media Lying About the IG Report?

I've seen all over the news like on CNN that the IG report somehow "exonerates" the FBI. That's just blatantly false. It didn't prove for sure that there was political bias at the highest level (although there is a ton of circumstantial evidence that there was) but it did basically show bias at lower levels and abuse of the FISA process. That's not a exoneration or vindication by any stretch.

    The media isn't lying. 

    The IG report totally debunked Trump's claims about the Russia investigation.  Trump, and his allies, has insisted all along that the Russia investigation was "a hoax" that was totally baseless and was cooked up entirely by his political enemies in order to damage him.  He also alleged that the government was surveilling his campaign for political purposes. 

    The IGs report shows that these claims were all lies.  It determines that the FBI had good reason to begin an investigation into possible ties between Russian intelligence and members of the Trump campaign and that political beliefs didn't play any role in the decision making.  It also determines that there were no improper attempts to spy on the Trump campaign. 

    The report does find some faults with applications for FISA warrants, most seriously that a lawyer for the FBI appears to have altered a document to mislead the court.  But ultimately these are procedural matters.  As several people have pointed out, on a big operation like this there will always be some mistakes.  Ultimately these problems, while not meaningless, also don't show what Trump said they would show.  The Russia investigation was real and well founded.
