CNN faced $100M lawsuit over botched Russia story

The specter of a $100 million libel suit scared CNN into retracting a poorly reported story that slimed an ally of President Trump’s — and forcing out the staffers responsible for it, The Post has learned.

    When I saw the phrase “…the Post has leaned” on the front-screen, I thought at first that the link was from the Washington Post. But of course it was from the New York Post. One wonders how much attention this scandal is getting from the big anti-Trump media cartel.

    Even at CNN, money talks and bullshit walks.

    Not that Mr Scaramucci is a conservative but this is something that conservatives have to stop. Letting the MSM get away with this without massively hitting back only encourages this lying to continue. I hope Governor Palin is relentless in making the NYT pay for their lies and libel.

    “a CNN insider said staffers are furious at ‘having lost the moral high ground because of this story.’”
    You would have thought them bobbing around in a deep pool of sewage might have been a good indicator to keep their mouths shut and allowed them to reflect why they seem nowhere near any high ground, let alone a moral high ground. Every time they open their mouths stuff comes out and the pool of sewage deepens.

    This pretty much vindicates Trump.
    Our moral and intellectual betters at work.

    This is what happens when you let your bloodlust get in the way of your common sense.
