Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
CNN pretends to turn a new leaf by laying judgement over new submissions relating to Russia. New publishing restrictions are in effect, forcing writers and contributors to check in with the executive editor and the vice president, before they publish anything Russia related.
Perhaps it had something to do with Time Warner shareholders calling CNN a liability.
CNN is cracking down on its Russia coverage — imposing strict new rules for online articles — after they were forced to scrub a story from the web and issue a retraction, a report says.
An internal email obtained by BuzzFeed News outlines the publishing restrictions that the network has laid out in the wake of the controversy.
It was sent out Saturday morning by CNNMoney executive editor Rich Barbieri.
“No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason,” he wrote, in reference to a CNN vice president.
“This applies to social, video, editorial, and MoneyStream. No exceptions,” Barbieri added. “I will lay out a workflow Monday. Thanks.”
The new rules reportedly apply to other areas of CNN, and not just CNNMoney.
The story that was pulled from the Internet was published Thursday and then removed Friday night. An editor’s note was posted in it’s place at 10:44 p.m., explaining why it was taken down.
“On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund,” it read. “That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”
The article cited a single, unnamed source — claiming the Senate Intelligence committee was interested in a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”
According to BuzzFeed, the report claimed the committee had been looking into the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) as part of its probe of President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner.
It said that the RDIF had been overseen by Vnesheconombank, a Russian bank, which was the target of US sanctions — along with the fund.
The report cited a meeting in January between RDIF head Kirill Dmitriev and Scaramucci, founder of SkyBridge Capital and a noted Trump supporter.
Countless people on social media declared the article “fake news” and called out CNN — saying there were factual inaccuracies. The RDIF and Scaramucci, himself, blasted the network for running the piece.
“I did nothing wrong,” he tweeted Thursday. “They like hitting friends of @potus who are loyal advocates on his behalf.”
A source at CNN told BuzzFeed that the story about the RDIF and Scaramucci was ultimately a “massive, massive f-k up and people will be disciplined.”
Scaramucci thanked the network on Saturday for deleting it and apologizing.
“@CNN did the right thing,” he tweeted. “Classy move. Apology accepted. Everyone makes mistakes. Moving on.”
A couple of Time Warner shareholders went after CNN CEO Jeff Bewkes Thursday in LA at a Time Warner shareholders meeting for what they believe is the network’s continuous bashing of President Trump.
“I’m inquiring about CNN’s bias and our return on investment,” Almasi continued in his statement. “Half of the American public – which includes potential and current CNN viewers – voted for Trump last November and supports his agenda. CNN acts as if it is part of the anti-Trump resistance. Are you willing to lose viewers, possibly forever, because of the bias?”
Almasi even threatened Bewkes, saying that Media Research Center plans to alert advertisers about news programs that “peddle smear, hate and political extremism.”
He asked Bewkes, “Are you concerned about advertisers leaving CNN? Will you continue to ignore our appeals for objectivity at the risk to our investment in Time Warner?”
Referring to the blustery Fox News host who recently parted ways with the network after $13 million in payouts to women who accused him of sexual harassment, he added, “Boycotts work. Just ask Bill O’Reilly.”
Update: Pence’s snub of CNN was not directly related to CNN turning away Kellyanne Conway for an appearance on a Sunday CNN show in February. The story has been altered to reflect that.
