    Poor CNN. Oh how the mighty have fallen.


    Three CNN staffers resigned after the network retracted a story trying a top President Trump ally to a Russian investment bank.

    Thomas Frank, the author of the story, Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the CNN investigative unit that ran the story and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN, the network reported Monday.

    The story connected Anthony Scaramucci, a top proponent of Trump, to a Russian investment fund run by a bank controlled by the Kremlin.

    "In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story's publication," a spokesman said Monday.

    An internal CNN investigation reportedly found that normal editorial processes weren’t followed in the story’s editing and publication. Only one anonymous source was used in the story, and typical parts of CNN’s workflow, such as fact checkers, were reportedly not utilized before publication.
    Those filled in on the results of the internal investigation were reportedly told that the facts of the story weren’t necessarily wrong, but that the piece wasn’t strong enough to run as is.

    CNN, which Trump has frequently derided as "fake news," added strict rules for its Russia coverage following the retraction.

    “On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund,” the news organization said in a statement.

    “That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”

    A source close to CNN told BuzzFeed that the story’s publication was a "massive, massive f--- up and people will be disciplined."

    They USED to just the new. My dad was lamenting the fact, btw, that nobody just reports the news anymore, not a national level anyway.

    Van Jones says Trump / Russia is a "nothingburger." On air, he sings a different tune.

    He's frustrated with CNN's 24 hour endless bashing and loses the dignity of his office, funny as hell though

    Terrible imbalanced reporting is the norm, you just can't believe anything now. The credibility of these news sources is very low.

    CNN investigated who created the wrestling gif and found him. In their own reporting of how they found him, they said "we have chosen not to release his name, but if he creates another one we reserve the right to expose him."

    CNN is able to find a 15 year-old random Reddit user but has no idea how Donna Brazile got the DNC debate questions???

    Your media ladies and gentlemen.

    That's hilarious, freedom of speech but only if you share their views.

    Haven't read that yet but will soon as I post this. That's odd I just read an article couple days ago about Gore and his 30,000 (?) slides or photos he had documenting Global Warming and talk of his follow up feature to 1st Inconvenient Truth and it said point blank that his big house was totally powered by renewable energy. I wonder which of the opposite articles is true?

    I think he has used fancy words before to say he buys renewable energy from a provider, and invests, or blah blah blah, but he has a power guzzling mansion like most of them.

    The worst part? Not just CNN, but the same journalist both times.

    The craziest thing to me about all this is the DNC paid for it, then turned around and pushed for an investigation into Russia. That's like me hiding heroin in my bedroom, then walking the officer and his K-9 back there and telling them they can start their search here.
