This morning President Donald Trump was on a rampage, attacking CNN for publishing “FAKE NEWS”.

That’s nothing new, but the whole reason that Trump was attacking the cable news station was because they retracted an article about alleged Trump/Russia ties which they deemed to have been published inappropriately by some of their editors. Management basically said that they require more sources for a news story to go public than what the original editors actually had.

The article that was reported on, connected Trump confidant, Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund. CNN never went live with the story on air, but there was an article published for a short time on their website.

Trump brutally attacked CNN for being ‘FAKE NEWS’, yet it was CNN who decided to remove it because of a lack of confidence in the sources.

“Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories,” Trump tweeted this morning. “Ratings way down! So they caught Fake News CNN cold, but what about NBC, CBS & ABC?”

While Trump was attacking the cable news network for publishing the story, the man who the story was aimed at, Anthony Scaramucci, had nothing but compliments for CNN. He tweeted, “CNN did the right thing. Classy move. Apology accepted. Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on.”

So there you have it. Even Scaramucci himself realizes that CNN corrected an honest mistake. Isn’t this more respectful than Fox News who continues to report on fake Seth Rich stories?

    News organizations don’t make honest mistakes. They check the facts, or they don’t. And this rag reprints the mistake to keep a dead story alive.
