Donald Trump rails at 'fake news' CNN following news retraction

Share

The story was posted Thursday on CNN's website.

The report last week claimed Congress was investigating Anthony Scaramucci, a member of President Trump's transition team, for ties with Russian Federation. A CNN article on Monday about the resignations said: "An internal investigation by CNN management found that some standard editorial processes were not followed when the article was published, people briefed on the results of the investigation said". Seth Mandel, the op-ed editor at Rupert Murdoch's conservative New York Post, said conservatives should praise CNN: "This is pride-swallowing, grownup stuff".

The self-proclaimed "most trusted name in news" took another hit yesterday when the right-wing Project Veritas released a hidden video that purported to show a CNN producer admitting that the network's exhaustive coverage of the Russian Federation scandal is "mostly bulls-t" and that Trump "is probably right to say, like, look you are witch-hunting me".

India's Srikanth into badminton's Australian Open semis
In the early minutes of the match, Srikanth won his first point with a 28-shot rally with a delicate half smash to level at 1-1. As he lifted the Australian Open title, Srikanth became the first Indian man to win the championship.

This week turned out to be a big victory week for the US President Donald Trump and his administration which remained dogged by allegations of colluding with Russian Federation since the first day of the Presidency. The misstep on a relatively minor story — it was never mentioned on any of CNN's television networks — left some White House staff members jubilant, believing it has handed them a new talking point to use as a cudgel against mainstream media organizations they feel are largely biased against them.

"The story charged that the Senate Intelligence committee was interested in a "$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump's transition team four days before Trump's inauguration", per the New York Post.

"To report not on facts, but instead on narratives that yield high ratings, is exactly the definition of fake news", said O'Keefe.

Trump hits world of scepticism on foreign affairs
The poll of 37 countries found a median of just 22 percent have confidence in Trump to steer the USA on the worldwide stage. Some 55% rated Trump as a strong leader, though 75% said he was arrogant, 65% intolerant, and 62% risky .

The White House was scheduled to hold an on-camera briefing with Spicer on Tuesday afternoon - the first in a week that will be on-camera.

One social media exchange about the CNN story indicated how feelings about the network were running strong among Trump supporters.

Earlier this month, CNN had to correct another story in which Lichtblau was involved; it claimed that former FBI Director James Comey's congressional testimony would contradict Trump's claims that Comey told him several times that he was not under federal investigation. He tweeted, "CNN did the right thing". "And I think if that is the place that certain outlets are going, particularly for the goal of spiking ratings, and if that's coming directly from the top, I think that's even more scary and certainly more disgraceful.".

"It's not just Jeff Zucker, all Time Warner executives are anxious about if they will survive the merger", a media source said Tuesday. "On Friday, CNN retracted a story published by my team. I am leaving, but will carry those principles wherever I go". He was in charge of CNN's new investigative unit, per CNN.
