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

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.

Finally, here is yesterday's video for those who missed it:

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.AND SO DOES TRUMP.  nothing exists in a vacuumthe question is why do you have a problem with someone pointing it out?

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.
