Suffering a creditability crisis over its fake news, Fake News (formally known as CNN) retracts another Russia/Trump story and their producer calls Russia coverage ‘mostly **** ’

Three journalists quit CNN in fallout from retracted Russia story
By Howard Kurtz Published June 26, 2017 - Fox News

CNN reportedly imposing strict new rules on Russia coverage

Three CNN journalists who worked on a now-retracted story about Russia and a top Trump adviser are leaving the network.

CNN is casting their departure as resignations in the wake of the fiasco, but the network has come under substantial criticism since apologizing for the story. The move would also help CNN’s legal position in case of a lawsuit.

Anthony Scarmucci, the Trump adviser who is the target of the story, told me that he has no plans to sue. He said he has accepted CNN’s apology and wants to move on.

But Scaramucci also told me in an earlier interview, “I was disappointed the story was published. It was a lie.”

Lex Harris, executive editor of CNN’s investigative unit, was the highest-ranking official to resign.

Thomas Frank, who wrote the story, and Eric Lichtblau, who edited it, also turned in their resignations. Lichtblau is a highly regarded reporter who spent nearly a decade and a half at the New York Times.

The story tried to draw a link between Scaramucci and the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Scaramucci was a Trump transition team member who has been nominated to an ambassadorial-level post based in Paris.

The CNN.com article said that Scaramucci, back in January, held a secret meeting with an official from the Russian fund. According to an unnamed source, Scaramucci discussed the possibility of lifting U.S. sanctions at the meeting.

But Scaramucci told me there was no secret meeting. He said he had given a speech on Trump’s behalf at Davos, and fund official Kirill Dmitriev approached him in a restaurant to say hello and they had a brief conversation, with no discussion of sanctions.

In the retraction, the network said the story “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” The network is now requiring approval from two top editors before any Russia-related story can be published.

The Latest: CNN tweets a correction at Trump
AP
21 minutes ago
NEW YORK --
The Latest on CNN's retracted Russia story (all times local):
11:40 a.m.
CNN says President Donald Trump is wrong to suggest the network is failing.
The president, in a morning tweetstorm related to CNN's retraction of a story about a Trump associate's meeting with a Russian financial leader, suggested that the network is looking at management changes. "Ratings way down," the president tweeted.
But CNN's public relations team tweeted back at him Tuesday morning that the network just recorded its most-watched second quarter in history.
Said CNN: "Those are the facts."
___
10:55 a.m.
A conservative provocateur posted a video Tuesday of a man identified as a CNN producer commenting on his network's coverage of President Donald Trump and connections to Russia.
The producer, identified as John Bonifield, said it appeared CNN had no "smoking gun" evidence of wrongdoing by the president and was giving the story extensive coverage because it was good for the ratings. A CNN biography lists Bonifield as a producer for the network's medical unit, with no indication that he's involved in political coverage.
The video, posted by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas, had Bonifield talking with an unidentified person while sitting at a table behind a drink and later in an elevator.
CNN has not commented on the video. O'Keefe and his website have a long history of aiding Republican causes, often with the use of hidden cameras. The law firm of one victim recently sued O'Keefe, alleging violation of a federal wiretap law.
The video was released after three CNN journalists resigned Monday following the network's retraction of a story Friday about a supposed investigation into a pre-inaugural meeting between a Trump associate and the head of a Russian investment fund.
___
9:11 a.m.
President Donald Trump is using the resignations of three CNN journalists involved in a retracted Russia-related story to rail against media credibility.
On Tuesday morning he tweeted, "Wow, CNN had to retract big story on 'Russia,' with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!"
He also wrote, "So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC? What about the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost? They are all Fake News!"
The CNN story was about a supposed investigation into a pre-inaugural meeting between a Trump associate and the head of a Russian investment fund. The story was posted on the network's website Thursday and was removed, with all links disabled, Friday night. CNN accepted the journalists' resignations Monday.

If Fox held to CNN’s standard, the network would have fired Special Report anchor Bret Baier over last year’s retracted, anonymously sourced report, presented days before the presidential election, that an indictment was “likely” in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server. Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade wouldn’t still have jobs after being scolded by a top network executive and a federal judge for their tendency to credulously report Internet hoaxes and absurd smears. Senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano would have been canned after he claimed that unnamed intelligence sources had told him that late last year, a British spy agency had surveilled Trump on behalf of then-President Barack Obama.

Obama bad, fake news, corrupt liberals.....what a simple-minded bore. After Mule was exposed for quoting the Washington Post yesterday , which he claims is fake, he is now trying to define fake news as only CNN. You see, the post ran a story that he liked, so therefore it's no longer fake news......until tomorrow when it criticizes Trump. Then it will be fake news again. And he wonders why nobody takes him seriously.

As it turns out the whole Putin/Russia/Trump conspiracy/collusion fake news of the almost last entire year was exactly that, fake.

Now the Dramacrats have gone into mourning having lost the only thing they had: lies.

Suckers.

Wait, let me get this straight then . . .

So NOW you are telling us Obama didn't know about the Russian election tampering?

It stands to reason that he couldn't know about something that never happened.

What is your point exactly?

Are you kidding?
It continues to amaze me that the lefties here are so unbelievably incapable of following factual news.

But of course y'all are all in the Democrats mantra "an uninformed populace is a compliant one".

You got lied to, played, bought it and now don't understand what happened to you.

Please keep it up. Low-info voters will keep the Republicans in power for a very long time.

His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself — that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink.

- George Orwell, 1984

Mule quoted a website called "nowtheendbegins.com"!!!! That's a great source to follow. Is that about the state of our country with Trump in power?

As much as I hate CNN for sinking to the lowest levels such as Muleman, at least they fired their reporters for it. At least they fired Kathy Griffin, and the other guy who cursed out Trump on air. Has anyone been fired at Fox News for pushing the fake Seth Rich story? Doesn't that make them worse since they kept those guys on their payroll?

What part of the NYT article is false? When you have no answer you attack the source. And yet, when you get around to giving a source, it is usually a right wing site. And, you show that you just read the headline because often the link is the opposite of what you say.

You have no business criticizing anyone here about anything.

Wow, did CNN reporter Jim Acosta get unhinged when the cameras were off today. The whole network is a sewer pickle swirling down the drain.

Do you mean this?

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/cnns-jim-acosta-on-white-house-media-crit icism-does-this-feel-like-america/article/2627253

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Tuesday asked his followers on Twitter if "this feels like America" after Trump administration's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders complained about the media at the day's press briefing.

"Does this feel like America?" Acosta asked his 315,000 followers. "Where the White House takes [questions] from conservatives, then openly trashes the news media in the briefing room."

At the briefing, which many reporters have complained about for being frequently held off-camera in recent days, Sanders said that President Trump is "frustrated" by the "constant barrage of fake news" about his administration and the federal investigation into whether his 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.



That is unhinged? We have a party in power that creates legislation behind closed doors. WH press briefings are not allowed to be televised and the president will only be inter viewed by Fox News which lobs softball questions at him. Are you OK wit this?

FOX was fake news before fake was real.

Fake news (CNN) is no longer a national news outlet. They play to a small group if ultra-left-wing extremists.
With their ratings in the toilet their President has been called before the board.

Lying has consequences.
