CNN portrays itself as the reporter of facts but when they made a mistake that nullifies their anti Trump hysteria they issue a correction when retraction is required for a legitimate news organization.

CNN didn't even make changes to it's verification process leaving them open to spinning more fake news. That is called political partisanship masquerading as news.

You forgot a word - TRUTHFUL.

Apparently the journalistic world has forgotten the word, they prefer to just run with whatever will make the splashiest headlines, and worry about truth, maybe later.

Anonymous sources are now taking the blame at CNN. We are expected to trust CNN that there were 2 sources, thus meeting some very low bar for journalistic standards. CNN won't reveal the source (of course ) because maybe it's not suppose to be leaked and maybe there's only 1. Brian Stelter, CNN's mighty watchdog, gave an explanation on his program which is called "Reliable Sources" about the temporary unreliability of the sources. Stelter, who works for CNN, "asked CNN if there would be any disciplinary action". I guess there is some firewall between CNN and Stelter at CNN.

I wish I could trust that their motives were to just make splashy headlines; but I am beyond that.

In my opinion, they are trying to actively affect the results of the political process.

This week @FoxNews botched report about how one of Roy Moore's victims had "forged" her yearbook. They had to retract. Breitbart of course never corrected. No uproar about fake news. No suspensions. Let's acknowledge double standard - right-wing is allowed to & expected to lie.__Cenk Uygur (Twitter)
