CNN Gets Strict About Its Russia Coverage

CNN is imposing strong new publishing restrictions for online articles involving Russia after the network deleted a story and then issued a retraction late Friday, according to an internal email obtained by BuzzFeed News. The email went out at 11:21 a.m. on Saturday from Rich Barbieri, the CNNMoney executive editor, saying: “No one should publish any content involving Russia without coming to me and Jason [Farkas],” a CNN VP. “This applied to social, video, editorial and MoneyStream. No exceptions,” the email added. “I will lay out a workflow Monday.”
