Whammy! CNN Producer Admits Russia Narrative is “Bullsh*t”, Only About Ratings (Video)

As Trump said to CNN, “You are fake news!”

CNN has mentioned Russia on air 16,000 times since the story about a Russian collusion hit. Here’s the thing though, there isn’t actually a story. CNN’s producer admits that the mainstream media company produces fabricated information that has been doctored in order to make President Trump look bad, which in return, boosts their ratings. He even states that they would have never tried this with Obama but that “Trump is good for business.”

Listen for yourself as Project Veritas went undercover and spoke with John Bonifield, and recorded the entire thing. You will hear the producer blatantly call the Russia narrative “Bullsh*t” and admit that they are only pushing it for the ratings. He says they have “no giant proof,” and that even if the Russians did interfere with our election that we try to persuade theirs so what does it matter? I wonder if he will still be producer after this whammy.

“Why is CNN constantly like, Russia this, Russia that?” the undercover reporter asks?

Bonifield responds, “because it’s ratings. Our ratings are incredible right now.”

Further on in the clip, the undercover journalist asks, “but honestly, you think the whole Russia sh*t is just like, bullsh*t?”

“Could be bullsh*t,” responds Bonifield. “I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any big giant proof.”

“And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look, you are witch hunting me,” Bonifield continue later on in the clip.

Alarmingly, Bonifield also goes on to claim that in an internal CNN meeting, CNN CEO Jeff Zucker said, “good job everybody covering the [Paris] climate accords but we’re done with it, let’s get back to Russia.”

Just this past week, CNN fired 3 reporters after they were forced to retract a fake news story. If their credibility wasn’t already in the toilet, now it has been tossed in and flushed!
