According to a leaked CNN memo, Executive Editor Rich Barbieri instructed his staff to send ALL Russia-related stories to him or another high-ranking executive before being published.
Apparently they’re tired of being embarrassed on the national stage because of their constant stream of FAKE NEWS!
Here’s the leaked memo (obtained by BuzzFeed reporter Jon Passatino):

This whole situation comes after Breitbart News debunked their latest “fake news” story that claimed the U.S. Senate was investigating an associate of President Donald Trump for alleged ties to Russia.
More from Breitbart:
CNN’s piece was based entirely on information gained from one “anonymous source.” The article suggested shadowy connections between President Trump’s inner circle and a Russian investment fund:
“The source said the Senate intelligence committee is investigating the Russian fund in connection with its examination of discussions between White House adviser Jared Kushner and the head of a prominent Russian bank. The bank, Vnesheconombank, or VEB, oversees the fund, which has ties to several Trump advisers. Both the bank and the fund have been covered since 2014 by sanctions restricting U.S. business dealings.”
During an investigation into the story, a source close to Senate GOP leadership confirmed to Breitbart News that the allegations made in the CNN article were entirely false and politically motivated by Democrats. Breitbart’s GOP source stated:
“This is nothing besides Democrats trying to frustrate the efforts of President Trump’s administration while Elizabeth Warren and those of her ilk spend their days collecting taxpayer funded paychecks while they do nothing but stand in the way of the progress of the American agenda and are responsible for this nonsense. They should put their names on it if they want to waste taxpayer money on it.”

Sorry CNN, but there is absolutely nothing you can do to make us believe that you’re anything different than a FRAUD of an organization!!!
