As if working for CNN weren’t traumatic enough, CNN star fact-checker Daniel Dale recently had to live through another harrowing ordeal:

Wow. Nice going, Theo Fleury. We can’t even begin to imagine what Daniel’s going through right now.

Daniel Dale is now fact checking retired hockey players. So that's how things are at CNN at the moment.
