BREAKING: Panic At CNN Headquarters After Getting BUSTED For Fake Russia Story…

CNN was caught red-handed peddling a completely fabricated story.

The story claimed that Senate investigators were checking into a Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Trump’s transition team.

The entire article was “fake news” and the editorial board was forced to publicly retract — and now they’re changing things up at CNN headquarters in a desperate attempt to enact actual journalism.

BF reports:

CNN is imposing strict new publishing restrictions for online articles involving Russia after the network deleted a story and then issued a retraction late Friday, according to an internal email obtained by BuzzFeed News.

The email went out at 11:21 a.m. on Saturday from Rich Barbieri, the CNNMoney executive editor, saying “No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason,” a CNN vice president.

“This applied to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions,” the email added. “I will lay out a workflow Monday.”

The new restrictions also apply to other areas of the network — not just CNNMoney, which wasn’t involved with the article that was deleted and retracted.

CNN didn’t immediately return a request for comment and a question about what the previous workflow was.
