Three of the cable news outlets’ journalists have resigned after a bogus Thursday article suggested Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci was tied to a Russian investment fund.
The story was published on CNN's website on Thursday. By Friday, it was retracted, with an apology issued.
The CNN resignations may trigger some soul-searching at big outlets, which for months have gone after President Donald Trump with anonymous sources and dubious assertions regarding Russia. But will the soul-searching and standards improvement last?
