American Pravda: CNN

Part 1

American Pravda: CNN Producer Says Russia Narrative “bullsh*t”

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 have no real proof.”

Bonifield reveals 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.”


The video was recommended by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders

The day the video was released, Sarah Huckabee Sanders mentioned the video in a White House Press Conference, stating: “There’s a video out there circulating right now, whether it’s accurate or not, I don’t know, but I would encourage everybody in this room, and frankly, everybody across the country to take a look at it.”

The video became #1 trending worldwide on YouTube

The video quickly garnered millions of views on YouTube, becoming #1 trending worldwide. The video eventually received 2.8 million views.

Van Jones: Russia is “Nothing Burger” — CNN Part 2

Project Veritas’ American Pravda: CNN continues today with a video of left-leaning political commentator Van Jones caught on camera plainly stating that “the Russia thing is just a big nothing burger.”

This video comes just a day after CNN's statement declaring John Bonifield was just a "health producer" and "isn’t involved in Russia or Trump coverage."


The video was commented on by Saturday Night Live

The second video, also reaching #1 trending worldwide, was also mentioned on Saturday Night Live, referencing the line “nothing burger.”

Part 3

CNN Producer: Voters "Stupid as Sh*t"– American Pravda: CNN Part 3

Project Veritas' newest video from the American Pravda: CNN series exposes Jimmy Carr, the Associate Producer for CNN's New Day attacking President Donald Trump and admitting that CNN has a left-leaning bias.

When asked by an undercover journalist if CNN is impartial, Carr plainly responded, "In theory."

Also, leaked one and a half hour long audio from a CNN segment featuring Alisyn Camerota proves CNN selectively edits to make Trump supporter look like a conspiracy theorist.


Alisyn Camerota deleted her Twitter account

After exposing Alisyn Camerota’s segment for deliberately editing out of context to make a Trump supporter seem like a conspiracy theorist, Alisyn Camerota deleted her Twitter account, claiming Twitter has “become mean and verbally abusive,” and is “a cesspool of spleen-venting from people who think it’s acceptable to insult other people in public and anonymously.”

Part 4

CNN Producer Doubles Down on "Stupid as Sh*t" Comments About Voters

A follow-up to Project Veritas' American Pravda: CNN video again exposes Jimmy Carr, the Associate Producer for CNN's New Day saying he doesn't think he "said anything wrong." Carr was recently featured in Project Veritas' American Pravda: CNN video series, stating that CNN thinks Trump is "f*cking crazy," that Kellyanne Conway looks like she was "hit with a shovel," and that the American voters are 'stupid as sh*t." After seeing the first and second Project Veritas video which exposed CNN employees admitting the Russia narrative was "bullsh*t" and a "nothing burger," Carr says he "had a moment of panic."


Washington Post's Paul Farhi was exposed as #FakeNews

The videos received negative attention from the Washington Post’s Paul Farhi, who wrote a piece claiming that the Bonifield video left out the fact that Bonifield was from Atlanta. The video in fact DID clearly state that, and the Post was forced to issue an embarrassing retraction, which was framed by O’Keefe.
