CNN Catches Trump Lying During Today’s Twitter Tirade About ‘Fake News’

Three investigative journalists resigned from CNN Monday, three days after the network retracted an article that appeared on its website alleging that an associate of President Donald Trump has ties to Russian Federation.Three CNN editorial staffers have resigned in the wake of last week’s retracted story that suggested a questionable link between an ally of President Donald Trump and a Russian investment fund.Its investment in journalism has paid off with a series of solid stories, such as its report last month that Russian government officials had discussed potentially “derogatory” information about Trump in conversations intercepted by USA intelligence sources during the presidential campaign.CNN reported an internal investigation found that certain editorial processes and standards were not followed when the article was published, and the network then deleted the story from the website. The story’s author, Thomas Frank, was among those who resigned, according to a CNN executive who requested anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss personnel issues.POTUS is still eyeing a victory – because everyone’s favorite “fake news” outlet CNN was just forced to retract a story!”On Friday, CNN retracted a story published by my team”.While the video is indeed embarrassing to CNN, there have been no reports of management changes in the works, and it is too early to say whether or not CNN’s ratings will decline as a result of the videos.President Trump tried to make nice with the press Tuesday afternoon, hours after assailing CNN on Twitter.”I mean, it’s mostly bullsh*t right now”, Bonifield says.This past January, for example, Jones said that he didn’t want to hear anyone talking about the Russians and using them as an excuse for why Democrats lost to President Donald Trump last fall.”I think, if it’s accurate, it’s a disgrace to all of media and to all of journalism”, Sanders said.CNN responded to the tweet by citing the network’s high ratings in the wake of the around-the-clock coverage of the Trump administration.Project Veritas has released a video of CNN Producer John Bonifield who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that there is no proof to CNN’s Russian Federation narrative. On Monday, CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta complained on the air about White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer holding the daily briefing off-camera and barely calling on any CNN reporters for the past two weeks, while regularly calling on a Fox reporter.But CNN’s public relations team tweeted back at him Tuesday morning that the network just recorded its most-watched second quarter in history. The law firm of one victim recently sued O’Keefe, alleging violation of a federal wiretap law.The CNN story was based on one anonymous source, and when challenged on its content, CNN acknowledged it could not stand by the piece.O’Keefe’s secret videos only served to reinvigorate the anti-CNN storylines already across conservative media, giving life to more stories about CNN being “fake news”.See all of Trump’s rant against CNN, including a meme he retweeted, below.
