Why are you trying to make this about Hannity?
Why not look at all of your own "Russia" threads and
admit so many of them were based on fake news?

Do you know how many times Hannity has "reported" things that aren't true? How many times he's had to apologize for this? And that's not counting his usual level of background bulls# that he'll never admit let alone apologize for.
He's one of the least credible people on the air, hands down.

There's a few. Sean Hannity is utter garbage and when he gets called out for it, he falls back on "I never claimed to be a journalist." It really doesn't matter what Sean Hannity calls himself, lots of people turn to him for what is often disinformation or misinformation from which they form opinions about what is happening in the world.
So let's get some perspective here. These three CNN reporters did *something* wrong, whether the story was inaccurate and improperly vetted or whatever the case ultimately was, CNN retracted the story, apologized and all three involved are no longer employed by CNN.
That's the right thing to do just like the right thing to do in the case of Hannity would be for Fox to can him. Hate CNN all you want but let's try applying something approaching the same standards to the outlets and the talking heads that are spouting the lies that you like hearing. Isn't that fair?

Where's the "Dis-Info" now ?
Three CNN Employees Resign Over Retracted Story on Russia Ties
Three CNN employees have handed in their resignation over a retracted story linking President Trump to Russia, the network announced Monday.
Thomas Frank, who wrote the story in question; Eric Lichtblau, an editor in the unit; and Lex Haris, who oversaw the unit, have all left CNN.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson said in a statement Monday.
"Sources" and "Sources"
On Thursday, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a report involving an investigation of a Russian investment fund with possible ties to several Trump associates.
According to CNN, an internal investigation found that “some standard editorial processes were not followed when the article was published.”
Citing a single unnamed source, the story reported that Congress was investigating a “Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials.”
Forced resignation to attempt to save face for CNN is more likely.
Talk about discrediting...

While FOX'NEWS' mentions how great Trump is, and how bad the media is, about 16000 times a day, in a Sesame Street-like repetitive learning manner, which I assume is how Trump's 'poorly educated' prefer their 'news'.
