Three CNN Journalists resign over retracted story

Three CNN employees have resigned after the outlet deleted a story from its website that claimed there were possible ties between Russia and an associate of President Donald Trump.


In the wake of their resignation, Donald Trump Jr is calling for CNN's president Jeff Zucker to publicly explain, saying the story is 'the biggest fake news scandal in the network's history'.

Thomas Frank, Eric Lichtblau and Lex Haris were all involved in CNN's new investigative unit and left the company Monday.

Frank wrote the deleted story, Lichtblau was an editor in the unit and Haris oversaw the unit.

'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 spokesperson said.
