Trump then re-tweeted an altered logo of CNN that read "Fake News Network".

During her briefing, she did not take any question from CNN correspondent Jeff Zeleny. The story posted Thursday on CNN's website said Senate investigators are looking into the meeting between Scaramucci and Kirill Dmitriev, whose Russian Direct Investment Fund guides investments by USA entities in Russia.

He later added: "Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories". In their statement, CNN had stated that the story that had been published had come from an anonymous source and they do not believe that the reporters falsified the story. Seth Mandel, the op-ed editor at Rupert Murdoch's conservative New York Post, said conservatives should praise CNN: "This is pride-swallowing, grownup stuff".

Like all major news organisations, CNN is under pressure to produce scoops that draw ratings and Web traffic. "They are all Fake News!" "That's adorable. This is a business", Bonifield said, according to Real Clear Politics. O'Keefe and his website have a long history of aiding Republican causes, often with the use of hidden cameras.

Before last November's election, Project Veritas released a series of heavily edited videos that included a Democratic activist appearing to brag about deploying troublemakers at Trump rallies.

While Democratic opposition to the bill , as expected, is high, GOP support for the Senate GOP's plan is very soft. Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted some of his Republican colleagues for their "weak-kneed" stance on repealing ObamaCare .

Indeed, Haris - the top editor in the unit that produced the story - apparently wasn't directly involved in its preparation, given that he was away at the Investigative Reporters and Editors conference late last week as the story moved toward publication, according to a person familiar with the process. Creamer's firm recently sued Project Veritas alleging the sting violated federal wiretap law. The retracted CNN story was heavily dependent upon on anonymous source.

Scaramucci had said on Friday that the story is not true.

CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri sent out an email Saturday regarding the network's new rules after CNN a day earlier on one of its stories.

The self-proclaimed "most trusted name in news" took another hit yesterday when the right-wing Project Veritas released a hidden video that purported to show a CNN producer admitting that the network's exhaustive coverage of the Russian Federation scandal is "mostly bulls-t" and that Trump "is probably right to say, like, look you are witch-hunting me". 3 journalists quit. That's impressive and decisive action.

Podhoretz declined to respond to Hannity online and denied an interview request.
