Van Jones: Russia is “Nothing burger” — American Pravda: CNN Part 2
How much more evidence do Americans really need to verify what we already knew?
On Tuesday, Project Veritas released Part 2 – American Pravda which showed CNN’s Bonifield who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that there was no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative.
“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield says. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
He confirmed that the driving factor at CNN is ratings:
“It’s a business, people are like the media has an ethical phssssss…All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school you’re just like, that’s adorable. That’s adorable. This is a business.”
That brings us up to Part 2 – American Pravda and Van Jones caught on tape saying that Russia is a “Nothing burger.”
H/T Project Veritas:
The video, released by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, titled “American Pravda: CNN Part 2,” shows an unidentified journalist greeting Jones and saying they had met before.
PV Journalist: “Hey man, we met in Palm Springs a few years back.”
Van Jones: “Hey good to see you man, you good?”
Then the video then skips to a part of the conversation where the journalist asks, “What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?”:
“The Russia thing is just a big nothing burger,” Jones, who served as a green jobs czar to the Obama administration, replies. The video appears to have been taken on June 26 outside CNN’s offices on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
When the journalist follows up, Jones says, “There’s nothing there you can do.”
As O’Keefe points out in the video, Jones and CNN have pushed the Russia-Trump narrative in recent months. This latest Project Veritas CNN-targeted video shows a clip from December in which Van Jones refers to an “active attack of the country” by Russia.
Here’s the video:
Today’s video of left-leaning political commentator Van Jones caught on camera plainly stating that “the Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”
This follows the release of a video of CNN Producer John Bonifield, who was caught touting the Russia narrative as “bullsh*t.”
According to Brian Stelter on Twitter, CNN released a statement stating that Bonifield is just a “Health Producer” and “isn’t involved in Russia or Trump coverage.”
Paul Fahri of the Washington Post also weighed in on the Veritas video and Bonifield’s position at CNN:
“[I]t never mentions that Bonifield is a producer of health and medical stories, raising questions about how relevant his views are, and how informed he is, about CNN’s political coverage.”
Jones is one of CNN’s most prominent political commentators, and has appeared on CNN in the past attacking President Trump for his “Putin relationship.”
On December 18, 2016 Jones said: “Other Presidents tried to say nice things about the Russians — not in the face of an active attack on the country!”
“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield says in the first video. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
CNN’s Public Relations team eventually was forced by the overwhelming coverage of our video (with no help from them, of course) to give a statement:
“CNN stands by our medical producer John Bonifield. Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it.”
CNN is receiving heavy criticism from the President of the United States, and the video was mentioned by the Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:
T”There is a video circulating now. Whether it is accurate or not, I don’t know, but I would encourage everybody in this room, and frankly, everybody across the country to take a look at it. I think if it is accurate, I think it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism — we’ve been going on this Russia-Trump hoax for the better part of a year now with no evidence of anything.”
“Last year, we had to circumvent the mainstream media,” said James O’Keefe. “At a Trump inaugural event, I put the mainstream media on notice. If you are in the media and are using deception or malfeasant tactics, you may want to sleep with one eye open.”
Isn’t it nice to know we still have real investigative journalists, they are just not employed by CNN or any other MSM.
