The Man Who CNN Retracted Trump Story About, Calls CNN 'Classy'

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull borrows some lines from Donald Trump when asked about internal party division, saying it's just clickbait journalism and fake news.

On Friday night, CNN removed the story from its site.

Of course he meant President Trump and referred to his recent tweets attacking CNN. A network executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss personnel issues, said Monday that story author Thomas Frank resigned.

Trump wrote in a Tuesday morning tweet, "Wow, CNN had to retract big story on 'Russia, ' with 3 employees forced to resign".

After Sanders left the stage, she was criticized on Fox News Channel, where Trump-friendly views usually dominate.

In other words, CNN got caught publishing fake news and had to take drastic action to make it appear as though that isn't the network's modus operndi in covering the Trump administration.

“So why is CNN constantly like, ‘Russia this, Russian Federation that?” the journalist asks, to which Bonifield responds, “Because its ratings.”.

Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted a link to the Bonifield video.

The story was replaced with an editor's note of apology to Anthony Scaramucci, the Trump aide who was investigated in the story.


The video, which is available here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdP8TiKY8dE, shows that a senior producer at CNN, who has worked with the network for 15 years describing the intense speculation that Russian Federation aided the Trump presidential campaign as "bullsh*t".

He said it's all about ratings, and that CNN's ratings are up due to the Russophobia.

But the zeal to break news can create haste that leads to flawed reporting.

The following day, CNN informed employees that stories about Russian Federation must be first reviewed by CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri and CNN vice president Jason Farkas, according to BuzzFeed.

During her briefing, she did not take any question from CNN correspondent Jeff Zeleny.

This week turned out to be a big victory week for the US President Donald Trump and his administration which remained dogged by allegations of colluding with Russian Federation since the first day of the Presidency. And it subsequently cancelled a new series, "Believer", and fired host Reza Aslan after he described Trump in vulgar terms on Twitter.

The threat of a $100 million libel suit apparently prompted the retraction and the ousting of the staffers behind the story, according the New York Post.

He also had an opinion on CNN chief executive Jeff Zucker.
