Whoa… James O’Keefe gets CNN management on video admitting that the whole Russia mess is nothing but ‘fake news’ and is being pushed for ratings. This is the first video in a series exposing the media and I love the title: American Pravda: CNN Producer Says Russia Narrative “bullsh*t”. That’s exactly what it is… leftist propaganda that is very similar to shocker… Russian propaganda.
This follows hot on the heels of three CNN reporters resigning just yesterday over a retracted Russian story. These so-called journalists used one un-vetted source and ran with it. Big mistake. The story claimed that Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci had met with a chief executive from a Russian investment bank a few days before Trump’s inauguration. Then it further claimed that congressional officials were in the midst of investigating whether Scaramucci and Dmitriev (the banker) were discussing the possibility of relieving US sanctions on Russia. Of course, none of it is true. CNN scrubbed the story and said it didn’t meet their journalistic standards. Then they scrubbed three of their reporters over it.
The Project Veritas video proves that President Trump is right concerning the media witch hunt against him. John Bonifield, CNN’s supervising producer who has been with CNN for 15 years, tells the undercover journalist that he agrees that the Trump-Russia collusion story is “bullsh*t”, but that CNN is a business and profits are what counts… as opposed to reporting facts that is. Their audience wants to hear about the fake narrative of Russia and Trump, so that is what they give them. The truth doesn’t count for much here evidently.
Bonifield also states that CNN would never have gotten away with treating Obama like this. It would have been seen as biased and as an attack on a sitting President. And attacking Trump isn’t? Talk about skewed. This is the “Democrat-Media Complex” at play. It’s not journalism anymore – it is weaponized political reporting for the radical left.
“Then why is CNN constantly like, Russia this, Russia that?” the undercover journalist asked Bonifield.
“Because it’s ratings,” Bonifield stated again.
“Because it’s ratings?” the journalist incredulously asked.
“Our ratings are incredible right now,” Bonifield reiterated.
“But honestly, you think the whole Russia sh*t is just like, bullsh*t?” the journalist asked.
“Could be bullsh*t, I mean, it’s mostly bullsh*t right now. Like, we don’t have any big giant proof,” the CNN producer admitted. “I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging.” Well, of course they do and they have for over ten months now. There’s no there there is the problem. So, it will continue to be bullsh*t. The producer even admits later in the video that there is no smoking gun and if there had been one, it would have come out long ago.
CNN President Jeff Zucker, a progressive leftist Democrat, ordered his staff to keep hammering on the Russia/Trump story. It was and is all for ratings. This should embarrass the hell out of CNN, but it won’t. They are tone deaf and have no journalistic ethics. They have gone from being “The most trust name in news,” to the biggest purveyor of fake journalism and news out there. No wonder Americans don’t trust them anymore and just turn them off.
The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling. With 4 months looking at Russia…
