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."

All I ask is that they remove C.NN from airports and other public spaces.

It's bad enough having a 3 hours lay over, let alone having to listen to these room temperature IQ television actors peddle their poorly crafted  propaganda.

OANN is where its at.  No [very little] opinion and mostly news.  Dropping this PV story today and did a Seth Rich expose.

If you can get away with it, change the channel, or unplug it. 

This should have been Hedgeless Horseman's Marfa Mayhem assignment.

Its like the "anti-Watergate"

A President taking down the media, one fake news tweet at a time.

Loving every minute of it.

Once again, yank their creds and ban them from all federal government buildings. Let the states and locales decide to ban them from their buildings or not. They will end up covering the local happenings in Cali, NY and Illinois since those democrat commie strongholds are the only ones that will have them. If Acosta heckles anyone again until CNN in its entirety is banned then have him tossed off the premises with an order to arrest him if he is seen again within 500 ft of any federal building.

If Russia Russia Russia really is behind a tenth of what is claimed, then they are really maximizing their resources. They have a GDP of...what 37 cents?....We spend trillions and yet our cyber warfare tools get leaked out to criminals.

Well, if it was all for Ratings, then the Executive Branch can go after them for all sorts of things.

If they had the balls. Which they don't. They'd rather tweet, bitch, moan and complain, than take real action.

Action that might upset the GS apple cart. Can't have that now, can we, Donald?

Tiwin's picture

Sorry Hills , us Goy are waking up to the fact it is NOT for ratings but for pushing the Israeli Agenda-which is why our Bibi-fellater-in-cheif will NEVER shut em down. He is owned by the same Masters, and part of the price of his 'presidency' is fakeass opposition from fakeass news outlets.

See: Br'er Rabbit .

GS Apple Cart?

Israeli Apple cart. Fixed it for Ya.

Kushner's attorney is Jamie Gorelick, the Fannie Mae paymaster and funder of America's criminal invasion mortgage fraud feedback loop, leader of America's "red cell".

Now she's expanded her looting footprint to student loans, auto loans, more mortgage fraud, green energy fraud, and outright sale of US citizenship by the millions a year.

She's also an Iran agent since 2004 seriously https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/schlumberger-oilfield-holdings-ltd-agrees...

(Mueller and the FBI didn't notice her affiliation with Iran, Oops)

This is enough evidence that they are willfully trying to instigate a coup.  Investigate them, try them as terrorists and execute them.  Maybe they will realize that Obama shouldn't have signed the continuation of the PATRIOT Act.


it isn't called instigating.  It is called inciting a mob.

Not real news. A controlled narrative. Not the free press. Shut it down.

logicalman's picture

Not really a response to you, just trying to say something that's not so far down the list that it gets lost.

Any chance the comments could be restricted to something thoughtful rather than name calling and idiocy?

It's easy to criticise or be offensive, useful ideas require a little effort.

justin423's picture

I have seen no evidence?

Duh, that is classified and subject to Grand Jury proceedsings, not exactly two sources of leaks to the press.

You won't see any until indictments are unsealed.

Speaking of indictments....

Guess who just registered under FARA retroactively for 3 years and admitted 17 MILLION in income from foreign lobbying??????

Mr. Manafort, is your grand jury testimony against a bigger fish starting tomorrow?

Only time will tell.


By the way, I am a lawyer unlike the rest of the knuckledragging commenters on this site, so I do know what I am talking about.

I'm upvoting Project Vertias.  Stick them together with Judicial Watch and there won't be many bushes left for the MSM libs to hide behind any more.

James O'Keefe.  I would love to buy this guy a drink or 30.

Or you could simply send that $100 to Veritas. I plan to award them myself! Judicial Watch has done some great work as well. Congress/DOJ/etc. continually get in the way of justice.

O'keefe? Buy him a drink? You need to send him money for use in his prison commissary account to do that

the msm should follow the national enquirer model and report about all the alien abductions and three headed kids with scales for skin.

That stuff is actually true.  Didn't you see 'Men In Black'?

The MSM would have to set-up branch offices in LA, MS and AL for that!

If Drumpf was for real, which he's not, he'd push the FCC to revoke the licensing for the fake news outlets. But he's a crypto jew, in hock to the kosher nostra for his bankrupt enterprises and even had to sell his daughter off to keep the debt payments flowing.

“This reminds me of anti-Semitism,” Putin said. “The Jews are to blame for everything. An idiot cannot do anything himself, so the Jews are to blame. But we know what such attitudes lead to. They end with nothing good.”

... we never get the Jews out of control of our government and businesses.

squid's picture

No, it doesn't. For example, the Jews in Russia developed lovely home grown ideas like:

1. The Gulag,

2. The re-education camp,

3. The attempted destruction of christianity.


Of course the Jews couldn't actually call them selves Jews while doing this so they called themselves Bolshiviks. All bank rolled by their extended family in the west.


Who do you think taught the brother socialists in Germany how to do it all?

You thought the Germans invented slave labour and re-education? No-no my friend, it was those innocent Jews follow the calls of their brothers Marx and Eagles. You thought the Germans invented mass executions? No-no again my friend, the brother socialists in Russia, led by the bolshiviks blazed a path for others to follow.


You're right, the Jews in general lead to no where good.

Glad you pointed that out.

Amen brother. Keeping singing the truth, far and wide.

The FCC doesn't have jurisdiction over cable.

the6thBook's picture

Yeah, I don't think that would work.  First the FCC is all a bunch of liberals, so that would piss them off then you have all the liberal viewers that would piss off.  Better to jail Lynch.  She isn't Hillary so it won't piss too many liberals off, but it would be a punch back.
