Donald Trump gloats over CNN fake news scandal

Three CNN Employees Resign Over Retracted Story on Russia TiesMore

The article was posted on CNN's website on Thursday before being pulled on Friday.

But CNN challenged Trump on the second charge: The network's communications Twitter account responded to the tweet by pointing out the record ratings it has enjoyed during Trump's presidency.

CNN said the controversial article failed to meet its editorial standards.

The story's author Thomas Frank was among those who resigned, according to a network executive.

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted that "they caught Fake News CNN cold".

Project Veritas scored again, this time surreptitiously recording a CNN producer who admits that money is driving CNN's obsession with the Russian Federation investigation story, and that the coverage persists even though there is no evidence of collusion or wrongdoing by President Trump.

The CNN story has nothing to do with what Trump is under investigation for.

Despite the swift action by CNN to clean house after this major embarrassment, there still has been no official statement from CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker on how his network got caught with its hands in the fake news cookie jar.




Asked by the Project Veritas associate why CNN regularly covers the Russian Federation allegations, the man says: "Because it's ratings".

It was also found that only one anonymous source was used in the story, and things such as fact checkers which CNN use in verifying their stories, were reportedly not used before publication.

US President Donald Trump has decried "phony stories" by American television news channel CNN in the aftermath of the dismissal of three employees over a news story about an investigation into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Wow, CNN had to retract big story on "Russia", with 3 employees forced to resign. A CNN biography lists Bonifield as a producer for the network's medical unit, with no indication that he's involved in political coverage.

He also tweeted a link to the video posted by O'Keefe's Project Veritas.

Three journalists have left the publication following a retraction of a published story about collusion with the Russian government.

Trump has been unhappy with CNN since he was a candidate a year ago, and hasn't granted the network an interview since he's been president. They are all Fake News!'

But Mr Scaramucci, a Trump transition team member, appeared content with CNN's resolution of the issue. "For those who haven't seen this I urge you to watch", Trump said.
