CNN has long been publishing fake news stories about President Donald Trump and the Russians.
For months, they have been relying on anonymous stories to push their narrative.
However, they were recently exposed when they posted a story that tarnished the reputation of Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci by unfairly linking him to the Russians.
CNN since apologized for the story and publicly stated that they would be changing their policies.
In response to this, three people have now resigned from the news network. Reporter Thomas Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau, and executive editor Lex Haris have all resigned from the company.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignations of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” CNN’s coverage quotes a company spokesman as saying.
CNN should be ashamed of themselves for what they did. Look, it is understandable that you want to spin a story to try and gets more views, but this was more than a spin, it was a complete fabrication.
In an age where fake news is prevalent and the president himself is calling you the “fake news” network, you have to try a little harder to be unbiased and report the news accurately.
