CNN tweets a correction at Trump

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.

Bonifeld's comments were made public the day after head of CNN investigates, Lex Haris, resigned from the network along with two other journalists, Eric Lichtblau and Thomas frank. "I certainly don't think that you would get arguments from us if there were retractions from outlets on fake stories", White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, answering to a reporter's question during a media briefing on Tuesday.

CNN executives, from CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker on down, believe they can not get stories wrong given Trump's willingness to attack the network.

Not surprisingly, Mr Trump took the opportunity to attack the network, which regularly bears much of the brunt of his rhetorical attacks on the press.

Trump attacked the CNN first for its recently retracted story about a congressional Russian Federation investigation, which led to three editorial resignations. In their statement, CNN had stated that the story that had been published had come from an anonymous source and they do not believe that the reporters falsified the story.

Even before O'Keefe's videos were posted, anti-CNN stories had been splashed across conservative media.

CNN anchor Michael Smerconish is not embarrassed by his network's shoddy Russian Federation reporting last week, because they took immediate steps to correct it.

The White House promoted the group's video during yesterday's briefing. CNN later retracted the story.

The report also said that two Democratic senators wanted to know whether Scaramucci had indicated in the meeting whether sanctions against Russian Federation would be lifted, a decision that could impact the investment fund.

Scaramucci, who had been said to be under consideration for a post in the administration, accepted the apology on Twitter.

On Friday night, CNN removed the story, saying it did not meet the news organization's standards.

"I mean, it's mostly bullshit right now", Bonifield says in the video.

It's not immediately clear what in the story is factually incorrect, or whether CNN will continue to report on the issue.

"Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it", an email from a CNN spokesman to the Daily Beast reads. "I am leaving, but will carry those principles wherever I go". CNN also apologized to Scaramucci.
