A newly released video by Project Vertias and conservative activist James O’Keefe shows CNN producer John Bonifield speaking bluntly about the cable network’s coverage of President Donald J. Trump and Russia.
Just a day after multiple CNN reporters resigned (were fired?) for a false Russia story, Bonifield has been caught on video admitting that the Trump-Russia false “scandal” is about ratings, under the direction of network CEO Jeff Zucker.
The unnamed Project Veritas reporter can be seen (below) asking, “But honestly, you think the whole Russia shit is just like, bulls***?” His reply: “Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like we, don’t have any big giant proof.”
He also adds that Trump is probably right to fight back against the media bias: “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, like, you have no smoking gun. You have no real proof.”
You can also hear him describe just what type of biased direction Zucker has given the CNN team: “Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords and for a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, he said good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with that, let’s get back to Russia.”
He concluded, “Trump is good for business right now.”
This is extraordinary:

Something tells me this is going to be a very long day for CNN and their biased, fake news operation.
