CNN’s dangerous reporting on American spy in Russia gets blasted by White House

The infotainment network has been in a downward spiral for some time, and their risky reporting in this matter only confirms it.

There is no doubt that the White House and CNN don’t see eye to eye very often these days, but the latest tiff between the two could have some dire consequences.

The story revolves around a US spy allegedly removed from Russia back in 2017, possibly due to actions by the President.

CNN is standing by its reporting that the U.S. pulled its source from Russia in 2017, in part out of concern that the Trump administration had “repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing the covert source as a spy.”

But both the White House and the CIA slammed the reporting, with the latter calling the reporting “misguided” and “simply false.”

When it comes to American espionage, particularly in the orbit of the Russian government, these sort of mistakes could mean the difference between life and death.

“CNN’s narrative that the Central Intelligence Agency makes life-or-death decisions based on anything other than objective analysis and sound collection is simply false,” CIA Director for Public Affairs Brittany Bramell said in the agency’s statement.

Bramwell continued: “Misguided speculation that the President’s handling of our nation’s most sensitive intelligence — which he has access to each and every day — drove an alleged exfiltration operation is inaccurate.”

The White House also responded.

CNN’s reporting is not only incorrect, it has the potential to put lives in danger,” Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.

This is yet another flap for the flailing infotainment network, who is struggling not only in the ratings, but in their attempts to maintain their integrity.
