Three journalists quit CNN in fallout from retracted Russia story

Three CNN journalists who worked on a now-retracted story about Russia and a top Trump adviser are leaving the network.
CNN is casting their departure as resignations in the wake of the fiasco, but the network has come under substantial criticism since apologizing for the story. The move would also help CNN’s legal position in case of a lawsuit.
Anthony Scarmucci, the Trump adviser who is the target of the story, told me that he has no plans to sue. He said he has accepted CNN’s apology and wants to move on.
But Scaramucci also told me in an earlier interview, “I was disappointed the story was published. It was a lie
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

Very good to hear. The democrats are so low they will lie to try and discredit the president. They lie constantly hoping something will stick. The FACT is President Trump is a good man. There isn't a democrat alive who can hold a candle to him. The democrats need to do a turnabout and look at their idol obama who not only was the worst president ever but an evil liar. He knew about the russian interference into the election but being a typical "lazy loser" like the clinton campaign called blacks did nothing. Blacks everywhere should be hanging their heads in shame over what they overwhelmingly supported and to this day don't have the honesty in them to admit he is nothing but a lying loser ghetto hustler. Life would start to improve in black communities if they start valuing the truth and that truth is obams has not ever and will not ever contribute anything positive to society.

They didn't really quit, they were forced to resign or else.
