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.

Fox News Retracts DNC Staffer Conspiracy Story, But Hannity Keeps It Alive (May 24, 2017)

Hannity apologizes for sharing 'inaccurate' story about McCain (Feb 23, 2017)

Sean Hannity apologizes for fake story on Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton (Nov 2, 2016)

S ean Hannity fact-check of the week: No, Trump didn’t send his private jet to transport “stranded” Gulf War marines (Aug 12, 2016)

Fox Hypes RNC's Doctored Audio Of Supreme Court Arguments (Mar 30, 2012)

THE NATION : Hannity says sorry for using wrong rally video (Nov 13, 2009)

Hannity falsely claims science adviser Holdren "advocated compulsory abortion" (Sep 9, 2009)

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?

I do wonder how CNN is going to pin blame on the Russians for the three employees resigning...

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?

Deflection away from CNN - the Fake News Network.
Some have willingly propagated this fake news here and are no better than CNN.

The difference here is that this is a News Site that has mentioned "RUSSIA" nearly 16000 times since the inauguration with a constant attack along with other media like Msnbc and the NY Times etc. Its sedition, and its all to take down the President.

CNN in a snit over some stories about the Russia/Trump dilemma.

Apparently some "standards" have been questioned.

Result: 3 CNN people quit !!

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...


This whole story is a Fake News cover up for its latest Fake News retraction.

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'.

Thanks for showing your ignorance.

FOX is 50-50 positive/negative on Trump, same as they were with Obama.

This is simply CNN trying to wash itself of the dark cloud of BS they have been pushing for the past year. Attempting to blame their now resigned employees as the real culprits behind the Trump-Russia narrative.

We all knew CNN corporate would NEVER push such a false narrative...right? It had to be "rogue elements within CNN".

LOL
