CNN has been “caught cold” in an undercover sting operation that revealed the network’s fake news story about President Trump’s ties to Russia, was pushed by the CEO of CNN, to maintain the network’s “incredible” ratings.
Known for their undercover sting operations, Project Veritas has – in the past – exposed the Democratic National Committee’s highly organized network of professional agitators sent to disrupt Trump rallies, and exposed instances of voter fraud. This time, the organization infiltrated CNN in search of fake news.
In the fake news operation, an undercover Project Veritas journalist covertly filmed a candid discussion with a CNN producer. In the conversation the network employee admitted that the whole Russia story against President Trump is nothing more than a ratings grab by CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker. Apparently he is doing so to appease most of CNN’s liberal audience who want to see the President go down in flames.
When asked whether the “whole Russia shit is just bullshit,” the CNN producer responded by saying “it’s mostly bullshit right now.” He continued to say that he thinks the President is probably right to say that CNN is witch hunting him, because at the moment there is no smoking gun, and no proof.
I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime. – John Bonifield, CNN Producer
The CNN story in question was removed from CNN.com in late June 2017, and replaced with an editor’s note that read: “On June 22, 2017, CNN.com published a story connecting Anthony Scaramucci with investigations into the Russian Direct Investment Fund. That story did not meet CNN’s editorial standards and has been retracted. Links to the story have been disabled. CNN apologizes to Mr. Scaramucci.”
Three CNN journalists who had been involved in the story about alleged ties between Trump’s allies and Russia, resigned after CNN made the retraction.
Earlier in 2017, Trump called the media “the enemy of the American People!” In the wake of the CNN fake news scandal President Trump also called out several other television networks, including the New York Times and The Washington Post, and wondered when they too would be “caught.”
