CNN producer John Bonifield has been caught on hidden camera admitting the Trump-Russia collusion narrative is “mostly bullshit” but CNN continue to push the false narrative for “ratings”.
The stunning footage, which has hammered the final nail into the coffin containing CNN’s credibility, was released by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas.
O’Keefe teased the video release on Monday, saying “Independence Day is approaching, but this year the fireworks come early.“
Describing CNN as “American Pravda”, after the Russian propaganda outlet, O’Keefe said his goal is to expose the cable network as a propaganda network concerned with promoting an establishment agenda, rather than working to promote the truth.
PV reporter: “Then why is CNN constantly like Russia this, Russia that?”
John Bonifield: “Because it’s ratings. Our ratings are incredible right now.”
Bonifield also admitted that the network CEO Jeff Zucker demanded that the so-called news channel get back to concocting “new” about Trump and Russia because it improves ratings. Laughing off the notion that the media has an ethical responsibility and said “it’s a business” and “they gotta what they gotta do to make money“.
Exposing the corruption and cynicism behind the “Russian collusion” narrative is key to destroying CNN’s credibility once and for all. The network has mentioned Russia over 16,000 times since Trump’s inauguration, leveling damaging and baseless claims at the president.
CNN producer John Bonifield’s confession that this narrative is “mostly bullshit” and that they do not have any evidence to prove the conspiracy theory they have been pushing for almost six months, exposes the network as enemies of the people, waging a campaign to bring down a duly elected president.
On Thursday evening, CNN reporter Thomas Frank published an unverified report about a Russian investment fund, claiming it had several ties to the Trump team.
But by Friday night, the failing news network was forced to remove the story from the internet.
“That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted,” a CNN editor posted. “Links to the story have been disabled.”
Philly.com reports: Neither Frank or CNN immediately responded to requests for comment, and a spokesperson for the Senate Intelligence Committee wasn’t available to comment.
Frank, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist, had reported that the Senate Intelligence Committee was investigating a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”
In addition to retracting its story, CNN also apologized to Anthony Scaramucci, an adviser to Trump during the presidential campaign and a member of his transition team’s executive committee, who was mentioned in the story as having met Kirill Dmitriev, the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) that the network said is overseen by Vnesheconombank, a state-run bank that is currently under U.S. sanctions.
“RDIF always operates in full compliance with relevant regulations and legislation and its operations do not violate sanctions,” the spokesperson said.
Multiple news outlets have reported on the meeting, which took place at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland just four days before Trump’s inauguration. As Bloomberg noted, it was “the first public contact between the incoming administration and Kremlin-backed business.”
Scaramucci weighed in on Twitter Saturday morning about the network’s decision to pull the story, calling it a “classy move.”
Rich was shot to death in Washington, D.C., on the morning of July 10, 2016. Local police said the crime was likely a botched robbery, but that hasn’t stopped figures like Sean Hannity and former Republican House speaker Newt Gingrich from suggesting Rich was murdered for leaking DNC emails to Wikileaks.
