Quote:
CNNMoney Executive Editor Rich Barbieri has sent an internal memo to all staff instructing them that all Russia-related stories must be cleared by him or another high-ranking executive, following a Breitbart News investigation which forced the retraction of a fake news story claiming the U.S. Senate was investigating an associate of President Donald Trump for alleged ties to Russia.

CNN issued a retraction for their now-deleted story this week following an investigation by Breitbart News, saying in a statement released Friday night, “On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund. That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted.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.” The statement was published on CNN’s verified Twitter account:

It seems like the continual defense of CNN I see people making is that the Breitbart rag is more fake than CNN news. Like Breitbart is the level at which the bar is set.

Exactly. Companies like CNN are the reason that Breitbart exists in the first place. People get enough crap like this from what they currently view thus somebody eventually creates an alternative.

Likewise it seems the consensus is that if you're not getting your news from CNN then you must be getting it from Breitbart.

No. Long before Breitbart, and even before CNN, there was the National Enquirer.

Has Breitbart's business been suffering lately?
