"CNN Caught Cold" In Undercover Sting - Producer Admits Russia Fake News Story Pushed For Ratings

Update: President Trump has noted the series of CNN 'Fake News' stories once again...

The investigative journalists at Project Veritas have done it again! Known for their undercover sting operations, such as the one which exposed the DNC's highly organized network of professional agitators sent to disrupt Trump rallies, voter fraud, or the undercover operation which led to the arrests of Antifa thugs planning to disrupt an the inauguration "deploraball" event.

This time, the organization led by James O'Keefe has infiltrated CNN...

 

A PV journalist covertly filmed a candid discussion with CNN [health] producer John Bonifield, where the "Very Fake News" network employee admitted that the whole Russia story against President Trump is nothing more than a ratings grab by CNN's CEO Jeff Zucker - based on the fact that most of CNN's liberal audience wants to see the President go down in flames.

Bonifield also admitted that he hasn't seen any evidence of President Trump committing a crime.

John Bonifield: Even if Russia was trying to swing an election, we try to swing their elections, our CIA is doing shit all the time, we're out there trying to manipulate governments.

 

I haven't seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.

 

I know a lot of people don't like him and they'd like to see him get kicked out of office.... but that's a lot different than he actually did something that can get him kicked out of office.

Russia is for ratings!

PV Journalist: Why is CNN constantly like "Russia this, Russia that?"

 

Bonifield: Because it's ratings. Our ratings are incredible right now.

 

My boss, I shouldn't say this, my boss yesterday we were having a discussion about this dental shoot and he was like I just want you to know what we're up against here. Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords. For a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN [Jeff Zucker] said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we're done with it. Let's get back to Russia.

 

But 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.

True feelings about Russia...

John Bonifield was asked directly what he thinks about Russia... and responded with what many on the right have been saying for months; If it was something really good, it would have already leaked:

PV Journalist: But honestly, you think the whole Russia shit is just bullshit?

 

Bonifield: Could be bullshit. I mean, it's mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don't have any giant proof. Then they say, "well there's still an investigation going on." I don't know, if they were finding something we would know about it. They way these leaks happen, they would leak it. They'd leak. If it was something really good, it'd leak.

 

I just feel like they don't really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like "look, you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof."

We need to pass the healthcare bill to see what's in it.

BandGap's picture

You mean the 22 million who are forced to buy healthcare because, really, it's a tax? Make it sound like they are "losing" something they want. 

"You can keep your doctor", "premiums will drop an average $2500 in the first year" "just the tip"

Fuck off, shill.

"If only we had a President spend 3 hours of his morning highlighting yesterday's news ... oh wait"

He sleeps like 3 hours a night, he's got the time.  Could be the only other person on the planet that sleeps less than me on a regular basis.  He's on the fucking job damned near 24x7 so just calm the fuck down.

That's a little more than one round a week.

The President must get some exercise.

And I don't mean awkwardly pushing up 10 lb weights while wearing MOM jeans.

Maybe you never held a real job, so you don't know how stressful it can be.  Those of us who have, understand how valuable "down time" is.   But I have, and it can grind on you in ways you never thought possible.  I charish and need my "down time".  For me, it's usually fishing, for Trump, it's golfing. And considering Trump's stress level is exponentially higher than anything I have ever experienced,  he can golf 60 rounds if that's what he needs.  Truthfully, I don't care what he does. As long as he keeps taking steps to loosen the restrictions placed on the U.S. economy by the Obama,  and takes nessassary steps to fix the other major problems in this country, the man can spend a week in Malibu.

I hope nothing gets done on Obamacare so that you  get to watrch it implode, and implode it will.  It'll be a lot more than 22 million who lose their healthcare. 

Bay of Pigs's picture

And they never mention the 28 million Americans still without any healthcare.

Why is that?

shovelhead's picture

You and your pals can pay for them.

Problem solved.

Where did you get those numbers, CNN?

CNN made $1 billion off of covering the Trump campaign, wherein they feigned shock and horror at every word Trump uttered. Now, their bigwigs make avaricious statements like those above, but we are supposed to believe their Russia repetition is motivated by sincere concerns. The banter does explain some of their programming choices.

CNN experts just aired an "informative" discussion about Trump's healthcare efforts. It was full of unrelated diversions and vapid chatter, like the following: 'I have 3 young kids at home, and kids know how to be honest..........................It's not all about being rich and powerful.'

This was followed by comments more related to the issue under discussion, including a question from a six-to-seven-figure anchor, asking if low-income workers who cannot afford monthly premiums due to take-home pay at $1,200--$1,400/month and rent at $700/month minimum 'were more "important" than people receiving expensive Medicaid coverage.'

The anchor did not mention economic specifics, of course, but just phrased the issue in the most emotional way possible, leaving out a lot of infornation that is crucial to understanding what is at issue, like the fact that 20 million Americans simply cannot afford the premiums, while MSM are paid millions to chat about their kids and diss Trump. If CNN is making a ton off of such coverage, it might be time to read back over H.L. Mencken.

So 22 million people will be thrown off healthcare? What will happen, They will be implanted with a chip which will prevent them from walking into a Dr's office or the local walk-in clinic? Alarms go off, goons with cattle prods rush out and force them back out the door? That fucking Obamacare shit costs so much and pays for so little that it would be better to scrap the entire thing and just pay for care yourself. Have you seen a recent ER bill? The whole thing will collapse under it's own weight anyway. You think insurance companies LOSE money every quarter? HAHAHAHAHA.

Besides, Trigglypuff, if you'd just lose 250 lbs or so and stop eating shitburgers all day long,  you wouldn't need me to pay for your fucking obscenely expensive heath insurance scam. 

Look at Health care company CEO compensation to see who the real benificaries of Obamacare are. Hint: It is NOT the American people.

You are a shill, AND a moron.

People do not get to choose their own facts.  CNN has been accused of creating fake news and now "they" have admitted it. 

calcutta4's picture

why don't you and Mark Zuckerburg pay the bill to cover those 22 mil people, bc I won't.  It may shock  you to know that, while paper currency isn't in short supply, the U.S is on life support.  And if our Economy crashes, a lot more than 22 mil people are f#cked. No, f#cked doesn't cover it.  We will be f#cking FBAR.ed

"Any comment on the 22 million people you support throwing off healthcare Mr. President? Or the beer binge celebration when pieces of paper made it through the House with no debate/concern for the contents therein? Mr. President? Mr. President? "

 

First of all, Trump doesn't drink, so nothing to comment on re: beer binge.  Second of all the 22 million who are being thrown off healthcare can't afford it and someone else is paying for it.  That is socialist/communist.  Plenty of SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST countries in this world........... PLEASE GO PICK ONE AND MOVE.  This is the only place left in this world that still is a (pretend) constitutional republic.  Would like to get back to that anyway.

Trump's trolling is freakin' epic.  Definitely worth the price of admission!

I told you none of us was going to die of boredom with him in the WH.

so what is trump going to do? let this shit go on?

real change remains an illusion.

until something changes this is all bullshit.

i am still waiting for some kind of shake down of the status quo.

 

MagicHandPuppet's picture

In all seriousness, you're going to be sorely disappointed if you're waiting for a politician to bring about real change.

I'm not one for throwing around advice, but this titanic already hit the iceberg and waiting for someone to rearrange the deck chairs to suit our needs before we hit the icy cold reality is simply not my strategy.

Whenever I have time to take a break from prepping my family's lifeboat, I find a wee bit of solace in the entertainment value that Trump brings - and a nice occassional dose of schadenfreude with regard to my libtard friends' reactions to him.  I appreciate that he saved us from Hitlery and he's trying to save us from the moozy invaders and the social worrier dummycrats.  There are a few other morsels worth appreciating... but, few top the entertainment value from my perspective.

You know that's not going to happen until the global economy crashes and burns, right?  Then all the little rats will desert the sinking ships for their hidey-holes in New Zealand and their private islands in Bumfuckia, South Pacific.  It'll be like Galt's Gulch in reverse...the productive stay in the world and get eaten alive, while the moocher class flees to Galt's Gulch to live in peace and harmony on the fats of everything they stole from the productive over the centuries.  There is no solution to this problem.  Unless somebody invents magic, and we can put protective bubbles around our real property so no one can steal it and no gubmint agents can enter our real property to tax and confiscate.  I ain't holding my breath for magic to be invented.
