Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe has just capped off a week of destroying CNN's last shred of credibility with a Friday morning release of another undercover encounter with an employee of the beleagured network. Jimmy Carr, a hate-filled Associate Producer, said that virtually everyone he knows at the network - surprise - absolutely hates President Trump.
Carr: "On the inside, we all recognize he is a clown, that he is hilariously unqualified for this, he's really bad at this and that he does not have America's best interests. We recognize he's just f*cking crazy."
"Here's the deal, this is a man who's not actually a Republican... He just adopted that because that was the party he thought he could win in. He doesn't believe anything that these people believe."
Carr goes on to rattle off a laundry list of grievances against the President, stating that "90% of us are on board with just the fact that he's crazy."
Carr didn't stop at the President. When asked about the election, the Associate Producer said American voters are "Stupid as shit," before insulting Kellyanne Conway - a top Trump advisor and the first woman to run a successful Presidential campaign.
Carr then echoed what another CNN producer admitted to a Project Veritas operative - it's all about Ratings.
"It's decisions made by people higher than me and if they go wow, your ratings are soaring right now, keep up what you're doing. Well, what we're doing is Russia, ISIS, London terror, shooting in Chicago, that's it.
Fake News Bust
O'Keefe also caught CNN selectively editing out a Trump supporter's answer during an election panel to make him appear stupid when giving an answer to the topic of illegal immigrants voting in the 2016 election.
Week of horror for CNN
Undercover footage released earlier in the week dealt devastating blows to the credibility-damaged network whose President, Jeff Zucker, may be on the chopping block if a merger between AT&T and CNN parent company Time Warner is approved.
On Monday, Project Veritas released undercover footage of a candid discussion with CNN producer John Bonifield, in which the "Very Fake News" network employee admitted that the whole Russia story against President Trump is a "Mostly B.S." ratings grab by CNN's CEO Jeff Zucker.
Bonifield also admitted that he hasn't seen any evidence of President Trump committing a crime.
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. -John Bonifield
Then on Wednesday O'Keefe captured footage of CNN host Van Jones saying that the Russia - Trump story is "a big nothing burger."
Van Jones responded with a CNN op-ed, calling the video a hoax and "highly edited right wing propaganda" made by a "con man."
[F]or those of you unfamiliar with James O'Keefe and his misnamed "Project Veritas," here's a helpful recap: James O'Keefe is a notorious con man whose infamy arises from his addiction to pulling the same media stunts, over and over again. -Van Jones
(Perhaps the Project Veritas operative approached Van Jones off camera to role-play as a conservative for fun?)
White House Endorses
On Tuesday, White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah H. Sanders encouraged people to watch the O'Keefe video of CNN Producer John Bonifield admitting the Russia story was "Mostly B.S." pushed by CEO Jeff Zucker for ratings.
"whether it's accurate or not, I don't know - I think if it is accurate, it is a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism." -Sarah H. Sanders
Huckabee's endorsement drew the ire of the MSM, however instead of discussing the content of O'Keefe's video - pundits like Chuck Todd did a full Exorcist head swivel over the fact that Huckabee hadn't personally verified each claim in the undercover sting (which CNN confirmed the authenticity of).
Will a cleanout of CEO Jeff Zucker and perhaps a few other sacrificial wolves restore credibility to the news network that's been faking it for years? I wouldn't hold my breath as long as guys like James O'Keefe are around to expose the shills.
