Project Veritas Exposes CNN's Van Jones: "The Russia Thing Is Just A Big Nothing Burger"

Tyler Durden's picture

Yesterday, after dropping his first undercover CNN bombshell, which starred producer John Bonifield admitting that CNN's endless 'Russian meddling' crusade was "mostly bullshit" directed by the network's CEO Jeff Zucker with the sole intent of spiking ratings, Project Veritas' James O'Keefe promised there was more to come.  And, all we knew was that the subject of the second video would be "someone we all knew..."

As it turns out, that 'someone' is none other than CNN's Van Jones who inadvertently got caught revealing his true thoughts on CNN's 'Russian meddling' narrative, namely that the whole story is a "big nothing burger."

PV Reporter:  "What do you think is going to happen this week with the whole Russia thing?"


Van Jones:  "The Russia Thing Is Just A Big Nothing Burger"


PV Reporter:  "Really?"


Van Jones:  "Yeah."

Here is the full Van Jones footage for your viewing pleasure:


Of course, while we're happy that Van Jones decided to tell the truth, if only while he thought no one was listening, we do wonder how he intends to explain his seemingly conflicted 'on-air' versus 'off-air' personalities to his children.  As you may recall, Jones was the same distraught CNN commentator who spent election night describing Trump as a "bully" and a "bigot" all while saying that his "biggest fear" was how he could explain Trump's victory to his children...

Perhaps it's time to think about how you can explain to your children why you exploited your position and fame to provoke mass hysteria among a divided American electorate, over a story you knew to be false...hysteria which very well could have contributed to a mass shooting that nearly claimed the life of Steven Scalise.

Van Jones, nothing but a Race Baiting Globalist.

Two stories you won't see on CNN, the tragic cases of Sam Girod and Donald Trump:

The Libtards are stuck on the “nothing burger”. How about a Shit Fajita or a Turd Sammich?  ;-)

FrozenGoodz the obivous MSM shill plant.... yes you're that obvious.

James O' warned them that the MSM press was his next target, I guess they weren't paying attention .... shocker.

He'll play the race card to his kids, of course.....

I have to say though, I'm loving this shit. Watching CNN get their shit pushed in on the daily has been something that I count myself fortunate to have lived long enough to see.

It is "interesting" how the news cycle has suddenly turned on though "permission" was granted? (thrown under the bus)

When I think of Van Jones, I think of Lynch.

Top down, bottom up baby!

He's not used to being filmed while not at the SHOW, when he's not acting.

ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? - #ProjectVeritas #CNN #NothingBurger

don't forget, Orange Jesus would say that the Syrians NOT using chemical weapons is fake news too!

Syria bombing story is a nothing burger.


project veritas - giving diehard trumptards a good stroke fest.


Billy the Poet's picture

Why do Trump's mistakes in Syria make you want CNN ro lie to you about Russia? What is the advantage to be gained?

Bes's picture

who said that?

it's all fucking KABUKI

they are ALL FUCKING LYING to us about all kinds of shit. 

trump included.

that's the point.

Billy the Poet's picture

Of course the elites are lying to us. But you seem to have a problem with O'Keefe releasing videos which reveal some of those lies. Why?

Bes's picture

no problem at all. never said anything like that either.  he can do whatever the fuck he wants. 

however, it's worth noting:

  • it is a 30 second edited clip. 
  • no follow up questions/explanations are shown
  • no context

yeah, great fucking journalism.

CNN may lie, overemebellish, exaggerate, etc... for ratings and other motives.


nothing exists in a vacuum

the question is why do you have a problem with someone pointing it out? 

Billy the Poet's picture

You can point out the obvious all day if you like. The elites lie and we all know that. I still have no idea why Trump's lies infuriate you but you try to minimize the lies told by CNN.

Bay of Pigs's picture

Context? Please. I can't believe you're giving CNN any benefit of the doubt on this. They are attempting to overthrow a duly elected President. This is a clear example of sedition and treason. None of the shit they are spewing on Trump and Russia is true.

Tick tick fucking tick

Are you fucking kidding me? The PV piece is the closest thing I've seen to journalism compared to the entire MSM collection of "journalists" and "news outlets".

Pointing out the obvious, that "everyone exagerrates, and nothing exists in a vacuum" is a completely inane comment, even for you, but equating the MSM's (with CNN as the part of the leadership) blatant attempts to undermine an elected official, fabricate stories that could start global conflict, conspire with the Deep State/Elite Machine to take down sovereign states, against someone like Trump, who may at times exagerrate or embellish, is one of the most fucking retarded comments I've read on this site in a long, long time.

CNN made a bunch of money -- millions -- by trying to trump up a new Cold War. Maybe, that is what he will tell them: kids, it's just a business, not a so-called Fourth Estate. If your professors use that term, raise your hand, telling them how much money you can make when protecting the Republic is not your main concern. Stay focused. Keep your mind on the $$$$$. He will just avoid the subject of possibly providing an attempted mass murderer with a twisted excuse for his evil deed.

How in the hell is this about Trump?  This is about CNN lying about a story for months and one of the main actors acknowledging that it is all made up bullshit.

Yes... everyone lies.  You lie, I lie, Trump lies.


CNN is a media agency ostensibly charged with telling the truth and maintaining the publics trust in doing so.  Or maybe that part was lost on you because people tell lies?  It doesn't really matter what their motive is.  It matters that they are the press.  Well I should start saying were because this is the end.  At least the beginning of the end.

Tarzan's picture

How long of a clip do you need to record "it's a big nothing burger" in context and what follow up is needed?

Maybe your a young buck, or maybe to old to remember, but this is the sort of thing Journalists used to do, before journalism died!

hedda.lettuce's picture

I totally agree with you. The blind orgasmic frenzy on ZH is just as nauseating as watching people drooling to CNN.

But I think the ignorance here is far more disappointing.

Why all the down votes? Your comment is spot on.

Simplifiedfrisbee's picture

The disinformation runs deep on Fox and CNN. Fucking fools thought Drumpf would save their degrading state in a crumbling socioeconomic system. Now he runs the government like a business which means bigger government for you and less government for the rich. God bless you morons.

Bay of Pigs's picture

Well, it would be nice if you fucking tools could stay on point and have a rational conversation.

The thread is about PV blowing Van Jones and CNN out of the water, not Trump.

Interesting thing about that though is that his wife is white. So, his kids are half white.

How exactly DOES he have these race convo's with his kids?

Normalcy Bias's picture

When a man the calibre of Van Jones is exposed for being a completely full of shit Media Whore, I ask you, what can one believe in anymore?!

Isn't he supposed to be really smart? HA!

JRobby's picture

Frozen Goodz resorting to "real estate confiscation" just like a good little globalist.

CheapBastard's picture

I guess now when his children wake up in the morning how will he explain their Father is a total fraud?


Just another racist dindu, another failed product of years of AA.

Is there a bigger idiot libtard on TV than Van Jones? 

No. No, there is not.

Endgame Napoleon's picture

He has a lot of company, and it seems to pay off for them in terms of massive salaries. Sadly, the kids and adults who decide to put ethics or conscientiousness over profit often end up losing in this society, regardless of the industry.

Damn it, Jim!  

Now you're making me try to remember if this is true.

I found trav's particular form of racism refreshing. And spot on.

Eat that nothing burger, have a brain fart and have a nice day. Maybe your "frozengoods" will thaw in time and you will use your brain instead of being a Libtard cocksucking robot!
