Recently three employees resigned from their position at CNN after a story that involved the President of the United States, Donald Trump was retracted. The story was about the Russians and Trump which there has been much speculation over and many different investigations about.

The people that left include the author of the story, an editor that ran the story, and someone who oversaw the unit. Their names are Thomas Frank (author)  Eric Lichtblau (editor in the investigative unit of CNN) and Lex Harris (oversaw the unit)

A spokesperson for CNN mentioned "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,"

It is being said that an internal investigation found that the usual editing process may not have been followed for this particular story.  Fact checkers were apparently not used.

CNN has been called "fake news" by Donald Trump. CNN has possibly added strict rules for it's Russia coverage after the retraction of the story.

"On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund," The News organization reportedly said.

“That story did not meet CNN's editorial standards and has been retracted.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.”
