Three CNN employees have resigned amid the network’s very fake news scandal in which it was forced to retract a hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates.
“CNN said Monday that three journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted,”
CNN’s Brian Stelter reported late Monday.
“Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.”
The scandal surrounding CNN’s mishandling of a very fake news hit piece on President Donald Trump and his associates grows bigger on Sunday night as the network’s president Jeff Zucker and public relations team is refusing to comment to anyone — even to CNN media reporter Brian Stelter — about what happened.
The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS
To what can we ascribe the continuing metastasis of Trump Derangement Syndrome, which has come to infect America, and indeed the world, almost to the level of a true plague?
The most recent of the seemingly endless incidents/outbreaks range from the ridiculous (hapless movie star Johnny Depp making a joke about assassinating the president and then recanting it…his agent must have called) to the genuinely creepy…
The number of refugees who entered the U.S. during President Trump’s first three months compared to the last months of President Obama’s term was cut nearly in half, according to statistics released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security.
According to the statistics, a total of 13,000 refugees were admitted to the U.S. in the past three months, compared to 25,000 under Obama, The Los Angeles Times reported. The most popular countries of origins remained the same: Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Iraq, Somalia and Myanmar.
On Thursday evening, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a potentially explosive report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with potential ties to several associates of President Donald Trump.
But by Friday night, the story was removed from CNN’s website and all links were scrubbed from the network’s social media accounts.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” CNN said in an editors note posted in place of the story. “Links to the story have been disabled.”
Trump supporter Tony Forman is recovering today after being stabbed nine times. Ordinarily, even the fact that Forman was a Trump supporter wouldn’t be enough for this to appear on a site that covers national politics.

Cripes they’re everywhere… Westerville man charged with threatening Rep. Steve Stivers
After a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to commit mass murder last week — the second homicidal Bernie supporter so far this year — the media blamed President Trump for lowering the bar on heated political rhetoric by calling his campaign opponents cruel names like “Crooked Hillary” and “Lyin’ Ted.”
As soon as any conservative responds to Trump’s belittling names for his rivals by erupting in a murderous rage, that will be a fantastically good point. But until then, it’s idiotic. Unlike liberals, conservatives aren’t easily incited to violence by words.
It’s been six months since Trump’s inauguration, and I admit I’m still trying to understand him. I eventually came around to the notion that the sort of core principle of Trump is that he is a salesman, the sort of hard-driven, manipulative, Always Be Closing salesman that David Mamet captured so vividly in Glengarry Glen Ross, as I wrote in “What’s Trump’s Deal?” To summarize, I basically think that what we should always expect of Trump is that the particular deal he’s trying to close will always be the first thing on his mind, that he will exaggerate right up to the edge of any facts, and that he honestly doesn’t worry about being consistent because being consistent frankly doesn’t much help to close the deal.
The appointment of Robert Mueller, James Comey’s BFF, as special counsel stinks to high heaven. Forget the bipartisan encomia to Mueller’s “ethics” and “professionalism” and “integrity” and all the other usual question-begging praise the elite shower on each other to justify their power and privilege. Such mutual admiration and reciprocal puffery is just one of the ways that DC is “Hollywood for ugly people,” given that both industries are in the business of selling sows’ ears as silk purses. We heard all the same praise about Comey, who has been exposed as self-righteous, conniving, and cowardly, his ethics trimmed to his careerism. He proves that all political appointees and “public servants” should be judged guilty until proven innocent.
One of President Trump’s attorneys on Sunday insisted “there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period.”
He was responding to reports that a Justice Department investigation has expanded to obstruction of justice charges related to the president’s decision to fire an FBI director, as well as apparent confirmation by the president himself.
Liberal news outlets like ABC, NBC and CNN didn’t think it was worth mentioning the shooter’s connection with Sanders or making a big deal out of it. We know that they would have if the shooter had been a Trump supporter attacking Democrats.
