KARMA: 3 CNN Employees Forced to Resign After Pushing Trump-Russia Fake News
If you haven't already, please read FAKE NEWS: CNN Retracts Fact-Free Hit Piece On Trump Campaign Advisor. Are we all all caught up? Awesome. Because three CNN employees have been forced to resign...
Three CNN journalists, including the executive editor in charge of a new investigative unit, have resigned after the publication of a Russia-related article that was retracted.
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 resignations of the employees involved in the story's publication," a spokesman said Monday evening.
Fortunately we have a gif to mark the occasion, perfectly summarizing how awful we feel for the CNN lackeys who pulled a news story from the deepest crevices of their rectums:
Who wants to take bets on how many more CNN "journalists" will be forced to resign after BUSTED: CNN Producer Admits Trump Russia Coverage is "Bullshi*t!" blows up to Hiroshima levels? Not going to walk back the nuke joke. The CNN fallout is too glorious. The radiation spillover too delicious. I love the smell of singed CNN careers in the morning.
Ideally if one works in the news industry, one reports news. Like a baker producing baked goods or forced to for a gay wedding. A teacher who teaches while not raping male students. Or a feminist bitching about the nonexistent gender pay gap despite female CEOs raking in fat stacks, often more than their male compadres. You get the idea.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster knows there are burning dumpster fire loads of actual news to report. But CNN (and other networks, but today's news is all about CNN spitting in their own faces), isn't interested in covering the news. We're roughly six months into President Trump's term, seven layers deep into a Russian Conspiracy Theory. A conspiracy pushed militantly by CNN despite an utter lack of evidence. Only now is CNN feeling the heat of their own chaos.
Sometimes Karma takes its sweet time. But we're always grateful when it finally kicks in doors and wrecks faces.
Think Donald Trump will grace us with even more CNN soundbites?
