"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."

just read where "accosting acosta" has been reduced to becoming a heckler- isnt that a promotion for him?

It's all BS, top to bottom. The whole point is to entertain and distract you so you can just keep buying crap and medicating. You are bred to be a consumer on all fronts and that's your job in the grand scheme of things. And if you don't comply, you'll be cast out. Simple as that.

Bondo's picture

we have seen this cia-scripted play before. it was the blue dress-ken starr-bimbogate that they threw out to distract from the high tech military transfers to the chi-Coms, among other things. spunky dresses, oval office bj's were far more interesting than perjury and obstruction. 

the ken starr-clinton impeachment play propelled Fox News Channel into existence and straight to number one. high drama at high levels- high crimes and misdemeanors.  

This CNN-Russiagate is just the same opium for the liberal masses. 

what are they distracting from this time.

If this doesn't explain to the American people how abjectly flawed and dysfunctional the U.S. Government is (https://www.rt.com/usa/394181-white-house-rejects-russia-sanctions/) then the biggest U.S. banks deserve a $200 trillion "bailout" on the taxpayer's wallet!

As George Carlin said long ago:  "The media are almost literally exploding with bullshit!"

At this point how do you know Project Veritas ain't bullshitting too?  Just askin.....

Unfortunately, the NDAA of 2013 makes all of this legal.

Jews are terrible parasitic creatures. The additional elitist nature of theirs also failry earns them strong loathing and resentment. A moment comes when you must get rid off the parasite or die.

Khan Bodin's picture

Corporate western media: a business of making and disseminating lies, cover-ups, deceits, falsehoods and fallacies all the while the venture has been approved and blessed by the secular laws. If a common person had done even 1/10 of 1% of the things those corporate government blessed and approved businesses have been doing ever since their inception, he or she would have been tried and senteced for perjury (or any other reason .gov bureaucrats could think of).

It just gives me hope when I see the out of control agenda driven press BLOW THE FUCK UP.

If MK wants to save her show she should interview Zucker and cut him to ribbons, but she lacks the skills.

Maybe Tucker will get the chance.

Something for refreshing your memory. Westerners have problems with attention span I was told. There were some comparisons with fishes known for their lack of attention or memory. But what I would personally like to know is how on earth did "zionists" earn themselves such a bad reputation and subsequent removal in 250 AD? What Westerners think? Why did King Hammurabi in 1750 BC painted the Jews as criminals in his Code? Isn't the notorious behavior of the Jews only of the late date? eheheheheh

Incidentally, vast majority of the coraporate western propaganda/lies/fakeries/etc. businesses are owned by the jewish oligarchs, which I am sure is just a coincidence.

Wouldn't it be fun to sic the IRS and the FBI on these bastard. Tie'm all up in court for the next 3 years and suck them dry of there money.  Take a page out of their play book and see how they enjoy it.

Jeff Zucker....another media Jew who gives a rats ass about nothing except his ratings.

The goy does not need the truth or facts....

MagicCooler's picture

Bonifield is a pawn.

The real villain here is Zucker.

And remember: according to O'Keefe, there's more to come tomorrow.

This does not end well for CNN...

A U.S. news reporter or organization trying to bring a sitting president down has to border on treason. I know it doesn't fit the definition perfectly but how is this not a crime? OK you legal experts and lawyers how close or far away from a crime is this?

arby63's picture

I believe it may be a crime. I'm not sure about the legal rationale either but it's bad. It's like a cross between sedition and libel.

Then there are those masons. They are the students of the Jews, which means they are in the same deceit/deception business. And just like the Jews they love banking. They fancy themselves of being some "social engeneers (another jew-like trait of theirs). Gullible, docile and unsuspecting westerners are their cattle. They are making liberal animals from once proud and upright walking men and women. Could be why they are teaching westerners to be vegetarians: to eat like cattle does. Something to think about. Also they wish to breed westerners with negroid humanoid African race which should help to make westerners to come down on all fours in their opinion. Once on a divine path of becoming angel-like beings, now fallen to animal state of serving their vanity and most primitive desires like all four legged animals do. Terrible afflicition has befallen westerners. I bet you want to know its name, don't you? You already know it: its a word of 10 letters that begins with "l" and which associates on open-mindlessness. ehehehehehe

And don't cut that mutha-fucka Zucka down until he stops twitching.

Give it 3 or 4 days - or until his eyes pop outta his fat head - just to be on the safe side.

CNN - Criminal NeoCON Network

Khan Bodin's picture

Counterfeit News Network. A criminal corporate business that is producing and disseminating lies, propaganda and deceits in order to advance the interests of their owners.

Khan Bodin's picture

Some history lesson is perhaps needed. Illuminati is a word translated from Spanish "Los Alumbrados" (or translated "illuminated") and that's a name of banking order of Knigts Templars which they took after the Pope and some European nobility destroyed them on Friday the 13th (now you know why Friday the 13th is "unlucky, bad omen") 1307. They were exiled in the land of Aragon in Spain where thet took that name -- Los Alumbrados. They started as an order of vigilantes whose purpose and mission was to protect Christian pilgrims on their voyage throughout the holy Christian places in the Middle East, but promptly they turned into banksters and amassed enormous wealth through usury and in a very short period of time, which in turn made the Pope and faithful Christian nobility to destroy them. As it turns out, now they are destroying all of us together with their historical ally and friend -- the Jews.

and now for some real news

this just in:

Seth Rich was murdered by the DNC

The Russians did not hack the DNC

The Syrians did not use chemical weapons

The Fed has no control over economic inflation, only asset price inflation

FANG stocks business model is based on defrauding the US people of corporate taxes.

US Government debt will hit 20 trillion dollars in the next month and no progress has been made to reduce the deficit which will hit 1 trillion dollars before the end of the tax year on 31 October 2017.

The US and Russian economies would benefit by 100's of billions of dollars if they just got along with each other.

The Pentagon needs only half its budget to kill the number of guilty and innocent people that "boots on the ground are killing"

Terrorism has a direct correlation with the overthrowing legitimate democracies

lastly, some fake news in the style of the MSM

anonymous surces operating at board level in CNN/WaPo/NYT will hold a presstitute conference tomorrow to discuss how many of their staff have been implicated in a conspiracy to impeach the presdient; CNN/WaPo/NYT will list the names of those that have been handed over to the Federal Communications Commission so that it might montor the prosecution of these names to the fullest extent of the law, including sedition, treason, tax evasion, racketeering, bribery, assault, attepted murder and general libtard socialsit putridity and swampness.

anyone that thinks that the Russians didn't hack the DNC are absolutely FUCKING DELUSIONAL. Everyone has said it. Even Trump now admits it. They did it Get over it.


And let Seth Rich alone already.. It was made up shit from a blogger. Get a fucking grip...

I'm going to play devil's advocate for a moment here and address the really important question in the aftermath of this most recent fake news reveal. 

While it's great to see CNN get outed for being the lying, manipulative propaganda peddlers they are, what is this going to change? 

The answer is nothing. This is only important to those of us who already know the MSM peddles fiction and has been since the invention of the printing press or the hard core Trump faithful who see this as vindication for their hero who introduced many of them to the concept of fake news in the first place. Or at least went to great lengths to point it out.

And that's it. Nobody else cares about any of this, the vast majority of the news consuming public will write it off as a mistake which has been corrected with the changes in the company.  The never Trumpers will simply point out that even if CNN screwed up the rest of the MSM is still hot on the trail of the Russia connection, the investigation is still on going  so it still must be a legitimate story.

CNN will shrug this off in a few days and most will simply forget and move on because they don't really care all that much in the first place. They are perfectly fine with being told Assad, Russia and Iran are evil, Trump wants to kick old and poor people off their health care ect. Not because they have any real passion for any of these subjects but because sports, celebrities and entertainment in all it's forms are far more important so they just accept what is offered because it's easy and convenient.  

Leaving more time for the really important stuff.

Give it a week and despite Alex Jones assuring the world that this the end of the MSM we will be the only ones still talking about it.


hooligan2009's picture

have you ever had to sit through a few hours at an airport in the US or anywhere else in the world?

if CNN reverts to reporting news and not playing politics, just think how many people will be happier, more secure, less stressed and more welcoming of their fellow human beings.

one can pray that CNN everts to being a news station rather than a safe space for sanctuary seeking, bubble dwelling, libtard socialists that report REAL IMPORTANT FACTS and not push an agenda that nobody want to hear about.

it would be good for CNN and good for the rest of the planet.

LIbtard socialism is as dogmatic as Islam. It is morally bankrupt and drags people into more and more and more and more debt - monetarily in the case of CNN or morally, in the case of Islam.

both are mental diseases that spread through repitition of a message that poisons people souls. at least here we can spout off, get shouted at or shout at others without fear of the politically correct libtard media/islam sending us to prison or killing us for saying what we think

I don't know. I saw the leverage the video of Planned Parenthood gave Congress and this might start another sea change. Even if it only causes reporters to be more careful in their language.

If they are only after ratings and ratings = cash, maybe CNN really stands for Cash Now Network.  Hmmm.

And the pony show continues with this mindless garbage. The powers that be play you suckers all day with this slop and you fools buy it. Let's face it if they can demolition the Twin Towers and say planes took them down and get away with it then this is child play. Oh and let's not forget building 7 that just fell for no reason to. Like Putin said we don't care who you elect the administration is the same. Maybe you fools might want to spend some time with Putin to be educated.

Totally_Disillusioned's picture

I agree to a point.  First time in ver 75 years we've come close to bringing down the cabal - clean out the deep state and end the central bankers' rule.  If Trump can't do it, it can't be done.

It wasn't ratings.  CNN participating along with other MSM news outlets to brng down our govt in an effort to topple a duly elected President.  Folks, that's TREASON.  Time for the DOJ to bring indictments and let the chips fall where they may.

WTF are you talking about? Treason? you obviously don't 

know what it means.

Agreed.  The problem is that the are crawling all over the DOJ too.  They are everywhere.  It's like a demonic infestation.

Most, if not all, of the journalists in our society are corrupt little narcissistic shitheels who think a lot more of themselves than the rest of humanity does. Even the so-called 'Conservative' assholes are still assholes. They think that they have more power than the rest of us, think that they can dictate what we believe, how we feel, what's right and wrong, moral and depraved.  There ought to be a one-week hunting season on these bastards, not a catch-and-release type of enterprise, just a catch-and-hold system.  Then we could deport them to the middle of the South Atlantic and let them rot there for eternity.
