CNN is under the “fake news” gun again after it botched another story regarding the Trump Administration. CNN reported that Donald Trump Jr. had advance notice that the international whistleblower group WikiLeaks had a cache of stolen documents it was going to release. In fact, Donald Trump Jr. found out a day after the documents were released to the public. This is not a time to be touting inaccurate news stories.
