Who is Misrepresenting the NSA Collection Programs?

Michael Hayden, former director of the NSA and CIA on Fox News Sunday, August 4, 2013

HAYDEN: There are several there I think the intelligence community is looking at right now, Chris, and to make Americans more comfortable about the programs. 
I've got to add, Chris, it doesn't make Americans more comfortable about the program to misrepresent it. This does not authorize the collection of content, period.
The New York Times, August 8th, 2013: "N.S.A. Said to Search Content of Messages to and From U.S."
WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency is searching the contents of vast amounts of Americans’ e-mail and text communications into and out of the country, hunting for people who mention information about foreigners under surveillance, according to intelligence officials.

Who is misrepresenting these programs to the American people?
