"What about all the other phony stories" — Trump to CNN

Share

"They are all Fake News!", he wrote.

The story hung on a single anonymous source and appeared to have some inaccuracies.

Frank previously worked as a reporter for USA Today and Newsday before working with CNN.

In the video, a Project Veritas associate talks with the man identified as Bonifield, who goes on to say CNN is covering the Russian Federation out of desire to increase ratings, The Hollywood Reporter noted. This detail mattered a great deal, considering that Vnesheconombank was listed in a set of sanctions issued by the US government.

President Trump and CNN both needed a correction Tuesday morning during a Twitter spat in their long-running, mutually beneficial public feud.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter early Tuesday to sound off after three employees on CNN's new investigative unit resigned Monday over a retracted online story regarding the Senate's Russian Federation investigation.

"Wow, CNN had to retract big story on "Russia", with 3 employees forced to resign". Calling this a "breakdown in editorial workflow", CNN executives pulled the story, posting a note on its retraction in place of the article, as well as an apology, which The Mooch graciously accepted last Saturday. As Executive Editor of that team, I have resigned.

Scaramucci denied any wrongdoing, and later applauded CNN for doing "the right thing" by retracting the story:"It's ok. I am leaving, but will carry those principles wherever I go". The story was retracted. Rather, it meant that "the story wasn't solid enough to publish as-is", one of the people briefed on the investigation said.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump waves as he is introduced during the CNN presidential debate at The Venetian Las Vegas, in Las Vegas, on December 15, 2015. What about all the other phony stories they do?

Shortly after, Mr. Trump tweeted again about "fake news CNN", claiming they are now looking at "big management changes" following the retraction, and that network's ratings are "way down".

The President Of The United States is now under federal investigation for obstruction of justice related to the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

CNN isn't the only publication battling the fake news crisis-nor is it the only one accused of publishing false or biased stories.

The news network said it will not be releasing a statement about the video, according to the Reporter.

Elsewhere, Project Veritas had posted a tape on YouTube purporting to show a CNN Health supervising producer talking about the ratings-driven nature of cable news' focus on the Russian Federation story. Yet the departure of three journalists immediately following a mangled story provides a counterpoint to this particular slander.

"Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on", he wrote. They rejoice in it.
