CNN says it has accepted the resignations of three employees involved in a retracted story about a supposed investigation into a pre-inaugural meeting between an associate of President Donald Trump and the head of a Russian investment fund.
Trump's tweets came in the aftermath of CNN's retraction of a story linking a Trump adviser to a Russian investment fund.
Eleven data points tracking CNN's Russian Federation "fake news" story - and its retraction - concluded on Tuesday with a gleeful President Donald Trump going after other news media for their Russian Federation coverage, too. Believe me, the Trump supporters are going insane with this, and they should, because the story apparently was incorrect. "They're looking for something more, and I think they deserve something better from our news media".
A CNN Twitter account disputed this in a reply to the president.
The problem with CNN's story turning out to be problematic is that it lends credibility to the outrageousness that mainstream media is fake news. However, the relationship between Trump and Zucker has become antagonistic. "FAKE NEWS!" he wrote.

According to CNN, the story published on June 20 did not comply with the standards of quality, precision and exhaustive reviews imposed by the editorial department, particularly because it was based on a single anonymous source.
It is believed this move would help CNN's legal position in case of a lawsuit.
"CNN needs to be an organization that breaks news, not just an organization that covers breaking news or talks about breaking news on television", Andrew Morse, the executive vice president of editorial for CNN/U.S. and general manager of CNN digital worldwide, told NPR in January. The story was retracted.
CNN's story also said that the Senate Intelligence Committee's alleged inquiry into Scaramucci's meeting with RDIF was being done in concert with a separate investigation of Jared Kushner's December meeting with Venesheconombank CEO Sergey Gorkov, a matter that has gained increased scrutiny as the Russian Federation investigation focused more closely on Kushner's business dealings in recent weeks.
