In a serious blow to two leading American news organizations, officials of CNN and Time magazine on Thursday retracted a story they ran last month alleging that the U.S. military used deadly nerve gas during a 1970 attack on defectors in a small Laotian village. The explosive story, which aired on the premier broadcast of "NewsStand," a joint venture of Time and CNN, "cannot be supported," said Tom Johnson, CNN News Group chairman.
