Following the deletion and retraction of an article Friday on CNN’s website of a story involving a Russian investment fund and the Trump transition team, the network is placing tough restrictions on stories published that involve Russia, according to BuzzFeed.
BuzzFeed’s deputy news editor Jon Passantino tweeted:
In wake of story retraction, CNNMoney exec editor sends memo to staff mandating all “Russia-related content” must be cleared by him or VP
No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason first. This applies to social, video, editorial and MoneyStream. No exceptions. I will lay out a workflow on Monday. Thanks
