Donald Trump takes fresh swipe at CNN after three journalists resign

Donald Trump takes fresh swipe at CNN after three journalists resign”

CNN executives said the story did not meet the network's editorial standards and offered an apology to Scaramucci, which was promptly accepted.

The president was livid at CNN's story but also felt vindicated because it seemed to confirm his belief that the cable network was trying to undermine his presidency, according to one staffer who demanded anonymity to discuss private conversations.

Trump, who has repeatedly lambasted CNN as "fake news", gloated at news of the resignations on Twitter. "Ratings way down", Trump tweeted.

Project Veritas released a new video Tuesday, revealing CNN management officers discussing the network's decision to cover the Russian Federation story despite a lack of evidence.

Recreational Marijuana Legalization: Is Driving More Dangerous In States With Legal Weed?
Brine said they are numbers to pay attention to, but numbers of crashes related to distracted driving are "far more startling". States that have decriminalized it are still grappling with the legality of using marijuana for warrantless searches .

As a result, senior-level CNN officials are said to have sent word company-wide that any stories mentioning Trump and Russian Federation in the same sentence had to be vetted and approved.

Bonifield said CNN CEO Jeff Zucker told his staff to get back to the Russian Federation collusion story after they covered Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord for two days, and implied that this decision was driven by ratings.

"I haven't seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime", Bonifield said.

US President Donald Trump has lashed out again over "fake news".

South Korea considered sharing some events at the Seoul 1988 Olympics with the North. The United States will send around 245 athletes to compete.

In the video, a Project Veritas associate talks with the man identified as Bonifield, who goes on to say CNN is covering the Russian Federation out of desire to increase ratings, The Hollywood Reporter noted.

Earlier in the day, he focused his outrage directly at CNN, a network whose reporters and bosses Trump has frequently battled. It was retracted the next night, and CNN apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, the Trump transition team member named in the story.

Sanders urged all Americans to watch a video posted by O'Keefe's Project Veritas featuring CNN producer John Bonifield - even though she couldn't vouch for its accuracy. "They are all Fake News!" the president declared. The law firm of one victim recently sued O'Keefe, alleging violation of a federal wiretap law. CNN accepted the journalists' resignations Monday.

Following the retraction, Scaramucci tweeted that CNN "did the right thing". At press time the video had nearly 100,000 views (96,044) and was accumulating them at a healthy clip (more than 1,000 new views in less than 30 seconds, for example).
