MAIN STREAM MEDIA MUM ABOUT CNN FAKE NEWS

CNN was caught with it's pants down reporting on a story that was false if not "fake."

So, where's all the "breaking news" flashing lights or the armies of pundits picking the story apart?

Not a peep can be heard. Not even on the unbiased PBS network.


Three CNN staffers resign over retracted Scaramucci-Russia story

Three CNN staffers have resigned following the publication and subsequent retraction of a story linking a Trump transition team member to the Russia-related investigations.

The piece, published late last week, cited an anonymous source saying the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into the chief executive of a $10-billion Russian investment fund who met with financier Anthony Scaramucci before the inauguration.

The reporter, Pulitzer-prize nominee Thomas Frank, assistant managing editor Eric Lichtblau (who recently joined from the New York Times) and Lex Haris, the executive editor in charge of investigations, are all out.

"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 said in a statement.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Scaramucci called the CNN reporter and then Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist on Friday after the story posted, and alluded to the possibility of a lawsuit if the piece was not taken down.
