Trump attacks media in flurry of early morning tweets

Three CNN journalists resign after Russia-related article retracted

Trump has accused CNN of being a chief offender in his "fake news" claims, and refused to answer some questions from the network's Jim Acosta at press conferences.

"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 CNN spokesman said Monday.

Thomas Frank, Eric Lichtblau, and Lex Haris, the three CNN journalists who worked on the story, resigned this Monday.

It is one of several outlets targeted over critical coverage of the President, including the ongoing investigations into alleged links between his campaign team and Russian Federation.

President Trump's press aide Sarah Huckabee Sanders urged all Americans to watch an online video posted by a conservative provocateur with a CNN producer commenting on his network's coverage of Trump's connections to Russian Federation.

Three CNN employees have handed in their resignations over a retracted story linking President Trump to Russian Federation, the network announced Monday.

About two hours later, Trump continued, tweeting without evidence that CNN was "looking at big management changes" in the wake of the retraction and that its ratings were "way down!"

O'Keefe said Project Veritas got the video last Friday and that a portion, in an elevator, was recorded at CNN's headquarters.

These types of stories are typically reviewed by several departments within CNN - including fact-checkers, journalism standards experts and lawyers - before publication.

The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump on Tuesday took to the social media during a Twitter spat with CNN to lambast popular media houses in the country of publishing fake News.

CNN is pushing a Russian Federation narrative it knows to be mostly fabricated because "Trump is good for business", a CNN producer said.

"Our ratings are incredible right now", producer John Bonifield tells the Project Veritas reporter in the video, who asked the producer if he thought the story was "bulls**t".

Mr Scaramucci said it was not true, accusing the network of attacking President Donald Trump's friends. The law firm of one victim recently sued O'Keefe, alleging violation of a federal wiretap law.

All three journalists were highly respected and their resignations were said to have come as a surprise to their colleagues. It was retracted the next night, and CNN apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, the Trump transition team member named in the story.
