@CNNs Obsession with Russia links to Trump Just Cost 3 Reporters Their Jobs

I guess just running every stupid thing about Russia even if it is wrong is finally catching up to people at CNN.
Lex Harris, executive editor of CNN’s investigative unit, was the highest-ranking official to resign. Thomas Frank, who wrote the story, and Eric Lichtblau, who edited it, also turned in their resignations. Lichtblau is a highly regarded reporter who spent nearly a decade and a half at the New York Times.
The story tried to draw a link between Scaramucci and the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Scaramucci was a Trump transition team member who has been nominated to an ambassadorial-level post based in Paris.
Yeah CNNs Russia links was the guy working at that fund saw Scaramucci in a restaurant and said hello. You can almost see the leaked memo saying "words were exchanged between the two but it was not recorded." Then CNN filled in the blanks with their own Trump hatred.
