Director of National Intelligence says PRISM reports "contain numerous inaccuracies"
Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, released a statement saying that there were "numerous inaccuracies" in the reports. He then went on to review Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which the reports cited as reasoning behind the data collection. Clapper finished off his statement as you might expect, by defending the data collection and trying to push blame on the reports.
So, while Clapper may have said there were "inaccuracies", he also seems to admit that the data collection is happening, and he has also said that he wants to make some of the program declassified in order to prove that everything possible is being done to protect civil liberties.
*Update* Clapper has clarified his statement in an interview with the National Journal, answering the question "Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?" by saying:
