James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas have done it again, and this time it was CNN caught up in a sting so damning it may just change the American Pravda (media) forever.
Known for their undercover sting operations at prominent organizations, Project Veritas was able to infiltrate the highest levels of CNN and get a stunning admission on video – CNN is fake news. While many people already knew this to be true, the fact that CNN producer John Bonifield admitted as much is massive…very massive.
The video dropped overnight, after the network was already forced to fire three people over the very fake news story about Anthony Scaramucci, which it was forced to retract and apologize for. Now, CNN is facing an entire round of questioning after one of the beleaguered network’s higher ups made stunning admissions on camera.
A PV journalist was able to get close to Bonifield then ask about the entire Russian ruse, President Trump, and whether or not he thought Trump did anything wrong, and his answers will be quite the shock to regular CNN viewers tuning in for the latest dirt on their President.
Check it out:
PV Journalist: So you believe the Russia thing is a little crazy, right?
John Bonifield: Even if Russia was trying to swing an election, we try to swing their elections, our CIA is doing shit all the time, we’re out there trying to manipulate governments.
I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.
I know a lot of people don’t like him and they’d like to see him get kicked out of office…. but that’s a lot different than he actually did something that can get him kicked out of office.
Bonifield then admits that the Russia coverage is for ratings.
PV Journalist: Why is CNN constantly like “Russia this, Russia that?”
Bonifield: Because it’s ratings. Our ratings are incredible right now.
My boss, I shouldn’t say this, my boss yesterday we were having a discussion about this dental shoot and he was like I just want you to know what we’re up against here. Just to give you some context, President Trump pulled out of the climate accords. For a day and a half we covered the climate accords. And the CEO of CNN [Jeff Zucker] 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.
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.
The PV journalist then asked Bonifield about Russia and why nobody’s seen any evidence of wrongdoing. Pay close attention to the reason he says none has leaked out.
PV Journalist: But honestly, you think the whole Russia shit is just bullshit?
Bonifield: 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.” I don’t know, if they were finding something we would know about it. They way these leaks happen, they would leak it. They’d leak. If it was something really good, it’d leak.
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.”
After seeing these videos, it’s worth noting that CNN anchor Jim Acosta’s February tweet really hasn’t aged too well.
We are real news Mr. President. #realnews

Yeah, not exactly.
Again, while many knew that most of what CNN peddles is fake news, to have such an admission on video is massive. The President is right, CNN is very fake news.
Great job, James!
