Project Veritas, the non-profit investigative journalism organization founded by James O’Keefe, has struck again. This time they have undercover video of a CNN supervising producer admitting that the Russian scandal narrative is “bullshit.” And that CNN’s coverage of it is all about ratings.

Here is the video, in which CNN’s John Bonifield drops bombshell after bombshell:

The video is the first in a series O’Keefe and company have entitled “American Pravda.” O’Keefe promises the goal of the series is to “expose the decision making process” at mainstream media outlets.

In the recordings, Bonifield says that President Trump is right to call what CNN is doing regarding Russia a witch hunt. He added that there is “no real proof” of anything nefarious.

To highlight CNN’s focus on the Russia narrative, Bonifield told the Project Veritas investigator:

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 [Jeff Zucker] 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.

CNN, it appears, passed up the opportunity to hammer Trump for “destroying the earth” so they could get back to 24/7 Russia coverage. That’s dedication.

Project Veritas’ coverage may finally pull the curtain back on how and why the media chooses narrative over facts every day.


How do we stop the mainstream media from warping the national narrative? We push back together. With the truth. Be the first to receive CRTV’s free weapon against the worst the media has to offer. Introducing WTF MSM!?
