Not been a good week or two for CNN.
But to be fair, it's not just CNN that seems willing to destroy its credibility to keep dishing outlandish (and provably false) story lines about the alleged workings of some evil Russia menace.
And it's not just right-wingers willing to call out the recent instances of media bungling.
Actually, I'm not sure bungling is the right word. It's more than bungling when organisations disregard their own standards and practices, and repeatedly make mistakes so blatant that it's impossible not to see there's a multitude of systemic problems on-set and behind the scenes contributing to these very public failings.
It would appear the Democrats, who got much of the Russia hysteria rolling, have begun wising up, and are publicly distancing from anti-Russia story lines.
But the media?
Media seems hell bent to remain on its self destructive path.
