Overall Analysis
Trust Markers: 
There are tons of links in the article verifying what Long is talking about. Also CNN is generally pretty trustworthy. Almost all aspects showed up in the fake new checker. For example the H1 was there.
Mistrust Markers: 
Its a .com site. I couldn't find an about us page.
Trust Rank (1 = high mistrust, 5 = high trust): 
Reason for Trust Rank: 

It seems pretty reliable


Should I be more skeptical of this site because it is .com?



No, I don't think you should be more skeptical of the site because of the .com, it's CNN after all, and there's evidence/sources scattered throughout this page that backs up what it's saying. The author, as you found, is very experienced and credible. I wouldn't worry about this being fake.
