CNN is cracking down on how it covers Russia

Quote:The story that was pulled from the Internet was published Thursday and then removed Friday night. An editor’s note was posted in it’s place at 10:44 p.m., explaining why it was taken down.

“On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund,” it read. “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted.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.”

The article cited a single, unnamed source — claiming the Senate Intelligence committee was interested in a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”

...

A source at CNN told BuzzFeed that the story about the RDIF and Scaramucci was ultimately a “massive, massive f-k up and people will be disciplined.”

Scaramucci thanked the network on Saturday for deleting it and apologizing.

“@CNN did the right thing,” he tweeted. “Classy move. Apology accepted. Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on.”
