CNN introduces new strict rules of publishing online articles about Russia after the channel is removed the material, and on Friday evening issued a denial. This is stated in the message for internal use, which failed to BuzzFeed News.
This email appeared in 11 hours 21 minutes on Saturday morning. Executive Director website CNNMoney rich Barbieri (Rich Barbieri) said: “no One should publish content relevant to Russia, without guidance from me and the Vice-President of CNN Jason Farkas (Farkas Jason)”.
“This applies to social networks to videos to MoneyStream. No exceptions, — stated in the message. — About the order in which I will report on Monday”.
The new restrictions also apply to other areas of the network, not just on CNNMoney that had no relationship to a remote article.
CNN did not immediately respond to a request to comment on the question, what was the procedure of work in the past.
Remote article, about which sounded rebuttal, argued that investigators from the Senate study of the Russian investment Fund, whose leader met with a representative of the team trump the transitional period.
Remote article was published on Thursday. There is a link to one unnamed source, who claimed that the Senate intelligence Committee examines the activities of the “Russian investment Fund with a capital of $ 10 billion, whose Director General has met with a member of the transition team trump four days before his inauguration.”
News organisations close to the source, who asked not to be named, previously told BuzzFeed News that this material was “a complete failure and nonsense,” and that “the guilty will be punished”. According to the source, President of CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker (Jeff Zucker) and the head of personnel Department of the company “directly involved” in an internal investigation exploring the question of how could appear such material.

IMPORTANT: the Content relating to Russia
No one should publish content relevant to Russia, without guidance from me and the Vice-President of CNN Jason Farkas. This applies to social networks to videos to MoneyStream. No exceptions. About the order in which I will report on Monday. Thank you.
CNN never spends a journalistic analysis of the content materials. She just goes crazy when the reduced its ratings or sponsors.
Fake news at its best. What else to expect from our national media who hate trump. They are no better than the Russian TASS or Pravda.
The media is out of control in your biased towards Trump and the Republican party. If you don’t count Fox News, which obviously hurts the Republicans, these media have always been left-wing tendencies. But now things are worse than ever. Again, they help the person I hate most. Want to shift, do it with truth and not lies. Woodward & Bernstein struggled with the Nixon not that he’s a Republican. They found the real story and made material regardless of their own political views.
Interestingly, six months later, and evidence of collusion with the Russians exactly zero. Nothing. We have more evidence that Bush arranged for 11 September than this conspiracy theory. And CNN gives this stuff for real. They’re just crazy.
