BREAKING UNDERCOVER VIDEO: CNN Producer Admits Russia Story is ‘bulls**t’


Project Veritas

CNN is having the worst week ever. And it’s only Tuesday.

The network leading the charge against President Trump is now dealing with a new undercover video that shows a CNN producer admitting the Trump/Russia conspiracy story is “bulls**t.” He also admits CNN is pushing the narrative for ratings, which are at a high not seen in years.


The new video, from conservative James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, comes just a day after three CNN employees lost their jobs in a “fake news” scandal. In the video, John Bonifield, a senior producer at CNN, admits that the Russia story “could be ‘bulls**t.'” He is also heard saying he believes President Trump is correct when he says the media obsession over the Russia story is a witch hunt.

More from Project Veritas.

In the recent video footage obtained by Project Veritas, John Bonifield a Sr. Producer at CNN, admits to several beliefs that are in direct conflict with the official CNN narrative that Trump has colluded with Russia, and that Russia has interfered with the 2016 election. Bonifield expresses clear doubts that there is a fire behind the Russia smoke, stating, “I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.” He also confirms suspicions that CNN staff is ideologically biased against Trump, stating, “I know a lot of people don’t like him and they’d like to see him get kicked out of office…”

Bonifield even further confirms CNN’s bias against the President, stating, “I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me…you have no real proof.”

Bonifield exposes that Russia has been great for CNN’s ratings, and that orders from CEO Jeff Zucker himself have directed CNN to pursue Russia leads at the expense of other stories. Bonifield states “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.’”

He further comments on Russia, “it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof…if it was something really good, it’d leak.”

Here is the video.
