President Donald Trump has renewed his attacks on the credibility of several major U.S. news organizations after the resignations of three CNN journalists who were involved in a retracted story related to Russia.
Trump posted a series of tweets Tuesday criticizing the media outlets after CNN retracted a story connecting Trump associate Anthony Scaramucci and the head of an investment fund managed by a bank controlled by the Russian government.
The CNN story was published on the company’s website Thursday only to be removed Friday night.
The story’s author, Thomas Frank, investigative unit editor Eric Lichtblau, and unit supervisor Lex Haris all resigned on Monday.
An internal CNN investigation found that routine editing procedures were not followed before the story was published.
