Political activist James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas have one again proved by revealing liberal deception and lies through hidden video cameras.
In his latest action against on “Fake News” media, especially CNN, O’Keefe and his team has captured a senior CNN producer sharing the CNN’s merciless coverage of alleged Donald Trump/Russia connection is handled by ratings, and there is no factual evidence behind it.
Watch the video below which was released by Project Veritas, John Bonifield, Senior producer confesses that CNN’s coverage about Trump’s alleged Russia connections is “mostly bullshit”.
“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. . . If it was something really good, it would leak…. The leaks keep leaking and there’s so many great leaks, and it’s amazing. I just refuse to believe that if they had something really good like that that wouldn’t leak because we’ve been getting all these other leaks.”
Bonifield, having worked with CNN for almost 15 years admits that he has seen no evidence that Trump has committed any crime. He also feels that whole investigation is a “witch hunt”
“So, 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.”
The Project Veritas video just was in time with this growing CNN scandal where they retracted one negative story on President Trump as “not meeting network standard” and three employees responsible for the story have resigned.
According to O’Keefe, the goal of his “American Pravda” video series is to reveal the real impulses behind the editorial decision-making process at major media houses.
O’Keefe also noted that since President Trump’s inauguration CNN has mentioned Russia in their coverage nearly 16,000 times. In the video Bonifield acknowledged that CNN management is focusing heavily on Russia story just because of the rating. They do not have any solid proof to the allegations.
“Our ratings are incredible right now.” saying this Bonifield also revealed that in an internal meeting CNN president Jeff Zucker emphasized to give Russia story more coverage than other subjects.
” . . . 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 it let’s get back to Russia.”
Bonifield also noted that this kind of intense scrutiny of President Trump by CNN never happened with President Obama. By doing this CNN has “turned off” their liberal viewers.
“Trump is good for business right now.”
The CNN veteran produces affirmed that business considerations and not journalistic ethics drive the content aired by the network.
“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. Especially cable news. Cable news isn’t the New York Times, and it’s not even like NBC News. I mean NBC News still gets 20 million viewers a night. Cable news is getting a million. So, they got to do what they got to do to make their money.”
O’Keefe hasn’t revealed as to which media will be their target in the next installment of “American Pravda” but after this revealing video about CNN will put other Media Houses to be on their guard.
