Default 3 CNN News People Resign

Last Thursday CNN published a story about, what else, the Trump Russia connection. The thinly and anonymously sourced piece (1) supposedly targeted Anthony Scaramucci. It's hard to say what the deficiencies were since CNN pulled it and erased it from memory very quickly after Breitbart called it baseless. The 3 Amigos weren't newbies. Thomas Frank was the reporter. Eric Lichtbau had come from the NY times and was the editor. Lex Harris was executive editor. WaPo's media critic, Eric Wemple, finds some space in his column to defend CNN and also quotes a CNN anonymous source. The reason given by CNN for the errant article was "a breakdown in process". There's been a lot of that lately.

Critics will long cite this episode as evidence that CNN is precisely what Trump has called it — “fake news.” Yet the departure of three journalists immediately following a mangled story provides a counterpoint to this particular slander. Purveyors of fake news, after all, don’t take drastic personnel moves following a bogus story. They rejoice in it.

One instance of CNN showing a shred of journalistic integrity doesn’t outweigh the tsunami of phony scandal, fake news anti Trump smear campaign they have waged. They were one of the leading promoters of the fake dossier replete with lurid fabrications about Trump. Nobody lost their job, instead it was dressed up as "allegations unverified as of yet". Trash excuse for journalism.

Perhaps this latest group of firings signals a return to some level of journalism at CNN but it is hardly an indication they will no longer produce fake news.

It's more important that CNN/Zucker are perceived to have "journalistic integrity" than actually having it. In pulling the piece, CNN cleverly said that it didn't meet their editorial standards. It's still all good for CNN because they have again injected themselves into the narrative.......and that's good for business. I wonder if the resignations are fake.

Yup, and of course Trump is up first thing this morning tweeting about it.

Yep. He rubs their noses in it and he's neither polite nor subtle.

The MSM is pissed because Trump tweets. They object to his giving the news of the day instead of allowing the people to get it predigested from CNN and MSNBC.

CNN producer just spilled the beans. The Russian connection was a made up fraud driven by a motive of profit.
Bombshell: CNN Producer Admits Trump-Russia Collusion is "Bullsh**," just CNN Hunting for Ratings ⋆ The Constitution

So nice to hear that the greedy money motive superseded any thought of benefit to the nation. This is almost as good as if Bernie Sanders (banking regulator in chief) was getting nailed for bank fraud.


Can you say Hypocrisy?

Why do you believe this CNN producer but none of the other ones? Confirmation bias? And I don't think MSM hates Trumps tweets...they don't even have to work, just check the POTUS twitter account, endless material.
