Three news fakers depart CNN

CNN retracted its Fake News about White House officials being investigated by both the Senate and Treasury department. When it retracted that Fake News, I wrote:
Who got fired?
For until CNN starts firing someone for all this Fake News it peddles, CNN will continue to peddle Fake News.
Finally someone got fired. Or as CNN -- still clinging to less-than-forthright language -- called it departed.

Now then a brief summary. On Thursday, CNN published a one-source story that the Senate Intelligence Committee as well as Treasury were investigating Anthony Scaramucci and others for scheming with those Russian bankers.

Scaramucci told CNN that he said hello to a banker at a World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Hello, that's what a liaison to business (his job in the Trump administration) does. He talks to people. Lots of people.

Breitbart's Mathew Boyle busted CNN so hard for this BS story that it retracted the story the next day, which was Friday.

Then on Saturday, at least one CNN department head notified his staff that there would be no more Russian stories without his approval or that of his deputy.

On Monday, the reporter, the editor, and their boss departed: Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit.

From Brian Stetler:
The departures of Haris, Lichtblau and Frank are likely to come as a surprise to colleagues, particularly given the reputations of the three men.
Frank worked for USA Today and Newsday for three decades, pursuing investigations and covering the Iraq war as an embedded reporter, before coming to work at CNN.
He was part of an ambitious new investigative unit that was created last winter, bringing together existing teams from within the company and new hires like Lichtblau.
A veteran of The New York Times who won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting in 2006, Lichtblau joined CNN just three months ago.
Haris, who was named the executive editor of CNN Investigates in January, was previously the executive editor of CNNMoney.
Goodbye.

Dearly Departed, don't let the door slam you on the whatsit on the way out.

Now about those people -- including Jake Tapper -- who produced that BS Russian dossier story in January and the Comey-will-refute-Trump story this month.

  3. CNN only did this to set itself for some credibility in its next round of lies, coming soon. If they had fired Zucker, after a grovelling personal apology, I might stop yawning when they claim integrity. But Jamais! His motto:
