A video from Project Veritas, a conservative non-profit organization dedicated to investigating corruption in the U.S., depicts a CNN Supervising Producer, John Bonifield, revealing that the “Russia collusion” story was “mostly bull****.”
According to Bonifield, the biggest reason they even run the story in the first place, despite a lack of evidence, is because of ratings. An undercover Project Veritas journalist met and talked with Bonifield, discussing the Russia story. “Then why is CNN constantly, like, Russia this, Russia that?”, the PV journalist asks. Bonifield responds with “Because it’s ratings… Our ratings are incredible right now.”
And he’s right. According to a Nielsen chart, CNN’s May ratings were significantly higher this year than the previous year. But this one line (there’s more that I’ll get to, don’t worry) is insanely telling of the mindset in the MSM. The biggest reason they run the “Russian collusion” story at all is not to destroy Trump and damage his reputation (though, they certainly hope to accomplish that), but to MAKE MONEY! CNN is a business, after all, as Bonifield says.
I just find it hilarious that, while they are largely socialist in nature, they prioritize making money and using capitalism to their advantage. They use capitalism to denounce capitalism. And it’s not like focusing on the Russia story was a decision by station managers or on-air “talent”. The decision to talk about Russia non-stop came from the head honcho of CNN, CEO Jeff Zucker. According to Bonifield, “The CEO of CNN said in our internal meeting, ‘good job everybody covering the climate accords (which they covered for a couple of days), but we’re done with it. Let’s get back to Russia.’ So even the climate accords, he was like, okay, a day or so but we’re moving back to Russia”.
Of course, that’s to be expected. Covering the farce that is the Russia story garners them a lot of views and a lot of money. But that’s not all that the undercover PV journalist managed to get out of Bonifield in this video. According to Bonifield, he thinks that “there are a lot of liberal CNN viewers who want to see Trump really get scrutinized. And I think if we would have behaved that way with President Obama and scrutinized everything that he was doing with as much scrutiny as we applied to Donald Trump, I think our viewers would’ve been turned off. I think they would’ve felt like we were attacking him (Obama).”
So even he admits that there’s massive Anti-Trump bias in the news business. Now, this is something we, conservatives and Trump supporters, have known for ages. But to see a CNN producer saying these very things is great. Even he has to admit they’ve been treating Trump unfairly because they believe most, if not all of their viewers want to see Trump be heavily scrutinized and destroyed by them.
Then, the video begins to talk more about the Russia story. The PV journalist begins: “But honestly, you think the whole Russia **** is just bull****?” To which Bonifield replies with: “Could be bull****. I mean, it’s mostly bull**** right now. Like, we don’t have any big giant proof. But then they say, ‘well, there’s still an investigation going on’… I don’t know, if you were finding something, we would know about it. The way these leaks happen, they’d leak it. It’d leak. If it was something really good, it would leak… I just refuse to believe that if they had something really good like that, that wouldn’t leak because we’ve been getting all these other leaks. So, I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging.”
Mighty powerful stuff right there. And it looks like I was right all along, wasn’t I? I’ve said in multiple articles that, if there was any evidence, the MSM would know about it by now. That it’s been half a year since the election, half a year since the accusations began, and the FBI and MSM have yet to find anything real that ties Trump with Russia, or that shows Russia hacking our elections in some way. And now, we have an MSM spokesperson, if you will, ADMITTING TO THIS VERY FACT! From his own words, he says that the story is largely b.s. and that if there was something, anything, real and big out there, they would know it by now!
But you see? Like I said in the last article: this is about deception. They know they have no real proof and likely will NEVER have any real proof, but they will still run this story because 1) it’s garnering good ratings for CNN and 2) they want people to BELIEVE there was foul play in the 2016 election. The MSM KNOWS THEY’RE FULL OF IT, but they will never drop this ‘issue’ because it’s profitable for them.
