In case you haven’t heard. CNN just got busted for running another fake news story. It was so bad they even had to acknowledge it.
Now the bigwigs at the “news” network have issued new rules for any story related to Russia.
The Hill reports:
CNN imposing new rules on Russia stories
CNN is reportedly implementing strict new rules for the network’s stories regarding Russia.
CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri sent out an email Saturday regarding the network’s new rules after the network a day earlier issued a retraction on one of its stories.
“No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason [Farkas],” said the email, obtained by BuzzFeed News.
“This applies to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions,” the email added. “I will lay out a workflow Monday.”

The new restrictions come after CNN on Friday retracted a story that connected Anthony Scaramucci, a prominent ally of President Trump, to a Russian investment fund managed by a Kremlin-controlled bank.
“On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund,” the news organization said in a statement.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”
What a bunch of clowns!
