CNN Is Dead: Network Loses All Credibility As Producer Admits That The Entire Russia Narrative Is Fake News

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Nobody else needs to dig a grave for CNN because they are doing it themselves.  There has been scandal after scandal at the network, and now one of their producers has been caught on undercover video admitting that CNN has been pushing fake news stories about a connection between Donald Trump and Russia in a desperate attempt to get ratings.  In other words, CNN’s entire Russia narrative has been a complete lie all along.  Unfortunately for CNN, they are going to discover that once your credibility is gone it is incredibly difficult to ever get it back.

On Tuesday, Project Veritas made headlines all over the world when it released undercover video of CNN Producer John Bonifield admitting that CNN’s Russia narrative is fake news.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you can view the entire video right here.  Now that this video has been made public, I don’t see how CNN is ever going to recover from this.  When one of your top producers admits that the story you have been pushing for months is basically a load of cow manure, it is impossible to maintain the pretense that you are a legitimate news organization any longer…

Project Veritas has released a video of CNN Producer John Bonifield who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that there is no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative.

“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield says. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”

He confirms that the driving factor at CNN is ratings:

“It’s a business, people are like the media has an ethical phssssss… All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school you’re just like, that’s adorable. That’s adorable. This is a business.”

And of course this comes on the heels of three reporters being forced out of CNN for publishing a false story that attempted to link a Russian investment fund with Trump…

Three CNN employees have handed in their resignations over a retracted story linking President Trump to Russia, the network announced Monday.

The article was removed from on Friday after the network decided it could no longer stand by its reporting.

“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on, CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement.

President Trump has taken a lot of heat for referring to CNN as “fake news”, but after the events of the past several days he has been completely vindicated.

And once news broke of three reporters being forced out of the network for a false story about Russia, he took a bit of a victory lap with this tweet

Wow, CNN had to retract big story on “Russia,” with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!

This is such a shame, because I always liked CNN’s election coverage compared to the other networks.  John King always did such a great job breaking things down county by county, and Wolf Blitzer always made things seem so dramatic.

But now it is exceedingly difficult to see any sort of a future for the network after all of this.

And of course other major news outlets have been guilty of pushing fake news about Russia too.  The following comes from the Intercept

Over and over, major U.S. media outlets have published claims about the Russia Threat that turned out to be completely false — always in the direction of exaggerating the threat and/or inventing incriminating links between Moscow and the Trump circle. In virtually all cases, those stories involved evidence-free assertions from anonymous sources that these media outlets uncritically treated as fact, only for it to be revealed that they were entirely false.

But with CNN it has always been on another level, and we now have a top insider on tape admitting that a connection between Trump and Russia is being pushed even though there isn’t any evidence.  In fact, Bonifield says that CNN CEO Jeff Zucker has been personally pushing this angle himself

“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.”

I can’t imagine that Zucker gets to keep his job now that this has been revealed.

It may not happen immediately, but look for him to be shown the door in the not too distant future.

All along, Trump has insisted that this whole thing with Russia has been a “witch hunt”, and that is what I have been saying too.  And it turns out that Bonifield feels the exact same way

“I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”

If this doesn’t kill “the Russia story”, I don’t know what will.

This whole thing has been a massive charade from the very beginning, and the big news networks have been endlessly pushing it for ratings.

In their zeal to destroy Trump, they have “jumped the shark” and have destroyed their own credibility instead.

Once upon a time, most mainstream journalists at least attempted to pretend that they were being objective, but those days are long gone.

Today, it is absolutely imperative for all of us to understand that everyone has an agenda.  In other words, every single person that you see on television is trying to get a message across.  So instead of taking in news and entertainment passively, we need to have our filters up and we need to be thinking for ourselves.

Fortunately, episodes such as this one tend to awaken a lot of people, and more Americans than ever are sick and tired of the lies and misinformation that they are constantly being fed.

  • pissedlizard كافر ‏

    Too many CNN viewers WANT to believe their lies. That is why they are not going away anytime soon. At best they “re-brand” themselves, but that is really pushing it.

    We believe what we want and avert our eyes from what we do not want. The networks know it. They could care less about anyone who does not want to believe them.

    They are going nowhere. Period.

      I thought about her today in the grocery store, and it actually made me laugh to myself. Yea I know, it sounds strange, but what sparked the strange thought was when I saw a young man, maybe late 20’s wearing a bright red T-shirt with these words on the back, in big bold white letters…..

      “I’m always on Tranny Patrol”

      If that ain’t sick enough, he was toting around a six month old baby. We got a messed up world right now, and the sad part is, it ain’t gonna get better any time soon.

    PIERS MORGAN: Trump’s media enemies know that bashing him makes them big money but CNN’s greediness and desperation to get him has cost them dear

    CNN’s high moral ground has crumbled beneath it in spectacular style. In a humiliating moment in its history, CNN just accepted resignations from three of its top journalists for a fake story. It couldn’t have come at a worse time for CNN, or involved a worse kind of story. Its war with Trump has escalated on an almost daily basis since he won the presidency. Last Thursday, blasted out a new ‘bombshell’ exclusive about Trump and Russia – but it wasn’t true.

    ‘What about all the other phony stories they do?’ Trump lashes out at CNN after ‘massive f**k up’ story linking official to Russia is retracted and three employees are forced out

    The president launched a new attack on CNN Tuesday after three of its journalists were forced to resign over an anti-Trump story that the network retracted. ‘Wow, CNN had to retract big story on “Russia,” with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!’ the president tweeted. Trump also retweeted a Photoshopped version of CNN’s iconic logo – remade to read ‘FNN – Fake News Network.’

      I’m retired so I don’t have an agenda anymore, but I do have an angle most days.

      The good thing about retirement and old age, is that you can go through what days you have left without having to work on any agenda, and most days you just could not really give a sheet if you pizz people off.

      I never want to hurt innocent people but for the most part I am like an old curmudgeon when pizz ants like ScBeechDud plays his liberal handed jabs, and have this for him……..

        • JC Teecher

          Thanks Runnin Man. I hope you are protected from the thing that has been predicted to wipe out trillions across the globe, which is the coming worldwide collapse. In regards to your retirement funds, I hope you are not 100% invested in a pension or 401k stock plan that could be wiped out, “IF”????, the big econ collapse does happen sooner rather than later.

          I thought the big one was going to hit in 08/09, and made adjustments in 07. I did not play the markets heavily after selling off some real estate retirement holdings, but only dabbled in day trading for a while.
          My biggest move was to pay off a small mortgage debt early, with my profits from the “well timed real estate sell off, and a couple other debts like clearing the title on my F-350 Crew.

          If you are debt free, other than a small CC payment on unsecured debt, than you are truly free from the bonds of capitalism.
          We can never be truly free from taxes with ownership of anything more than a bicycle and a tent, but we can adjust to make those burdensome property taxes, lower and lower, as they soar higher and higher.
          Good luck with your future plans.

          • TheRunningMan

            Don’t know if I would say that I feel protected, but have been debt free for over a decade having paid off my mortgage early. My portfolio has VERY little exposure to equity markets at this point…all very low risk, and sadly low return, instruments now…and some of the shiny stuff. I just need to stash away for a few more years. Who knows, maybe I can exploit the market reset for some nice gains at some point. Honestly, I figured I would have had that opportunity a couple of years ago. I’ll just play it safe from here forward. Thanks for the well wishes.

          • JC Teecher

            Good work, and good planning!

          • aldownunder

            Low returns are alright at this uncertain stage better to protect what you have than to risk it for high return and lose 50-80% of what you have.
            Be patient the time will come when a lot of people have just about been wiped out to get back into the market and make a very good profit.
            Keep stacking the shiny stuff also, an excellent insurance against uncertain times.

    CNN your most trusted source for fake news. LMAO. Ever since Big Don told Jim Acosta your news organization is terrible you are fake news it’s been a riot. I haven’t watched CNN or PMSNBC since the crysacks were bawling on election night. I never ever thought that President Trump was guilty of Russian collusion. That’s the stupidest thing I ever heard. Their denial is so BAD that had to find any excuse they could for the loss. No it couldn’t have been Hillary a terrible candidate. No there was no way the election of Trump was a referendum on President Obama. Nope. He cheated. He stole it from us! Also Obama knew about Russian interference since August! I’m gonna watch Rachel Madcow tonigh just to see what excuses they have tonight. But it’s most likely they will pretend this didn’t happen…but it’s too late the genie is out of the bottle. And I hope this will destroy their credibility from here on out!

          I posted a couple more funny true stories, but the owners didn’t like me sharing a funny moment because they are not fun loving people. They are stuck in the mud, over the top, too serious kind of people, with no sense of humor. They were removed. I am on their “hit” list, and that is OK, because that is the kind of self-proclaimed Christians they are, you know the types, all holier than thou, “dull” people, that have a tendency to look down on others, most of the time.

          That is OK, because they own and operate the site, but keeping people interested with an occasional joke or two, is a plus in my opinion, but they want all strictly puritanical liberal based stuff.

          When I get my site up and running later this Fall…hopefully, we can have plenty of discussion without the likes of ScBDud, and his lying accomplices such as Carl, snottly , and Carrie.
          I promise we will have fun as well, and the ECB will be a distant memory of mine.

At that point, the war that I’ve been hoping for will be accelerated. The collapse of CNN will add fuel to our fire.

    I do not watch any news on TV now, neither cable or satellite. ALL OF IT is fake news. I get my news from trusted sources like alternative media, conservative talk shows, youtube channels like Kevin Johnston, and even foreign language online newspapers (with the exception of Arab/Muslim countries). I alway knew CNN was fake news the moment they defended “poor Palestinians” as victims, when if fact they are terrorists or terrorist sympathizers. Good riddance to bad TV.

    CNN has definitely fallen to the depths of depravity.

    I remember well when CNN Baghdad correspondents Bernard Shaw, John Holliman, and Peter Arnett showed the world what modern warfare was like from a hotel room during the first Gulf War. It felt as if we were there with them. We felt the fear along with Bernard Shaw as he reported the bombing nearby and the anti-aircraft fire shooting in all directions. It was a news coup that was the envy of all the other news agencies.

    Now CNN is nothing but a political stooge of the Left. It doesn’t let the facts stand in the way of a good leftist political agenda.

    • SoCalBeachDude

      Read the news here and on a number of credible news sources which both the author and I link to posts. The real information is very much out there, but ignore most of the MSM including its cable news sources such as FNN.

      • Bob

        Is Zero Hedge the only reliable news source? Who writes the Zero Hedge articles? Does anyone edit them for reliability? What other sources do you recommend? Give us some hot links.

        • SoCalBeachDude

          There is nothing even vaguely reliable from the clueless dolts over at ZeroBrains who do NOTHING BUT SPIN THE NEWS to suit their own interests. I wouldn’t – and don’t ever go there – for anything. I use the author’s site here, the WSJ, MarketWatch, Bloomberg, DollarCollapse, Rense, DrudgeReport, and an array of other sources to check out actual news including Google News (which is now at total mess as of today), and DailyMail which is the best overall source for news out there. Every source has its faults, however, and none are perfect at all, but that is to be expected these days.

          • Daddyotis

            Laughably false. ZeroHedge is one of the best news sites out there.

          • SoCalBeachDude

            ZeroBrains is one of the MOST FAKE NEWS sites out there when it comes to reporting and is JUST AS FAKE IF NOT MUCH MORE SO THAN CNN. ZeroBrains is the very epitome of SLANTED YELLOW JOURNALISM.

    Fake news! Doctored Time magazine front cover with Trump’s face on it is spotted hanging in five of the President’s golf clubs

    In at least four of President Trump’s golf clubs hangs a framed Time Magazine cover from March 1, 2009, featuring the reality star and the headline: ‘The “Apprentice” is a television smash!’ But Time never published an issue on March 1, 2009, and a closer look at the magazine’s famous red border reveals the cover, which hangs in golf clubs as far flung as Scotland, is a fake. It remains unclear who made the cover, but Time is now asking Trump’s businesses to take down the phony mock-up, according to Washington Post reporter David Fahrenthold.

          There is an excellent chance that Jerry will run and that he will become the next President of the USA. Most people – particularly here in California are beyond fed up with the contentiousness of DJT and want him gone whereas we absolutely love Jerry and Ann Brown who have done a wonderful job managing the State of California.

            Those fools would be laughed off the ticket the moment they announced candidacy, whereas Jerry would go on to win the Democrat Primary and the national election.

  • MathCapitalist289

    Exhibit A of CNN logic is: A or B, B ¬ A. Both A and B could be true. A reinforces prior beliefs; ergo, A is true while B is false.

    This is non sequitur. People (e.g. communists, zealots, and apparently reporters) use this all the time to propagate their own narrative, but a news medium should not use such lousy fallacies in their reporting.

  • MathCapitalist289

    Later, assuming CNN still exists, I will purchase them from their parent company (market value will be low due to waning viewership, a few million dollars might work) and double the salaries of the more repugnant reporters.

    Why would I double their salaries?

    They need an incentive to dress up in jester costumes and tell jokes about debacles the old network was involved in. After all, capitalism requires people to offer a service to consumers and investors, and this would be the optimization of these individuals’ potential.

    • JC Teecher

      They should only watch the news long enough to catch up on “current events”. Watching any news channel long enough, especially cable news such as PMSNBC, Clinton News Network, and Faux News, will eventually cause one to freak out with unintentional outbursts of anger at family, friends, and neighbors, and complete strangers with road rage.

      My friend was driving through town last week, and a guy on a crotch rocket moved to the near center of the lane markers, (no turn lane) with his left arm extended as in signaling to turn left across traffic when it cleared.
      As traffic was only about 20 mph, my friend slowly moved past the motorcycle but had to stop for vehicles ahead of him. The guy on the bike cussed him and told him he had no right to pass him until he turned, and my buddy said he had every right, and the guy on the bike cussed him back, and my friend showed him he was “number one” as he drove away. Shortly after when traffic cleared in another section of town, here comes the motorcycle on it’s rear wheel right beside my friends vehicle, and the rider took his fist and slammed the passenger side mirror and busted it.

      Road rage 101. He must have overdosed on PMSNBC. Hope he broke his hand in that idiotic move of rage.

        So you have a “friend” who is a HIGHLY OBNOXIOUS DRIVER who goes around inciting road rage and you report that here in detail ? Really? Seriously?

    I knew CNN and others are a big ‘load of cow manure’ long ago. I stopped watching them years ago. Not only waste of time but a danger to my mind.

    What still surprising about this expose is how many Americans are surprised by it. They have been watching these network ‘news’ for so long the do not have the mental capacity to understand have been brainwashed by BS propaganda. Whose directors are the unethical CEOs and the deep state war, intelligence and money machines.

    Some headlines say this expose is the ‘American Pravda’. Don’t insult Pravda. The headline reflects years of deep anti-Russia (and anti-China) brainwashing. These propaganda campaigns, which the corporate media CEOs have been directed to join, serves the interests of the war hawks and their machines, line their own fat pockets.

    Such a degradation of society and intelligence is sign of an arrogant warring empire in decline. This is good.

    The media will do anything to bash Trump — and now they’re hurting

    In the sixth month of Donald Trump’s presidency, we are witnessing an unprecedented meltdown of much of the media. Standards have been tossed overboard in a frenzy to bring down the president.

    Trump, like all presidents, deserves coverage that is skeptical and tough, but also fair. That’s not what he’s getting.

    What started as bias against him has become a cancer that is consuming the best and brightest. In rough biblical justice, media attempts to destroy the president are boomeranging and leaving their reputations in tatters.

    He accuses them of publishing fake news, and they respond with such blind hatred that they end up publishing fake news. That’ll show him.

    CNN is suffering an especially bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, even trying to make a virtue of its hostility to the president. In doing so, executives conveniently confuse animus with professional skepticism, and cite growing audiences as proof of their good judgment.

    CREDIT CRISIS: The BIS and the global debt bubble

    The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is to be applauded for its candor about the serious debt related vulnerabilities in today’s global economy. At a time when a great sense of complacency pervades both global markets and policy making circles, the BIS has had the courage to suggest in its recently released Annual Report that the emperor might have no clothes.

    It has done so by pointing to the large increase in global debt levels and the large reductions in global interest rate risk premiums that have been spawned by years of ultra-unorthodox monetary policies by the world’s major central banks. It has also done so by flagging the existence of a series of asset price bubbles and poor bank practices in a number of important countries.

    The BIS’s principal concern is that global debt to GDP levels today are some 40 percent higher than they were on the eve of the 2008-2009 global market meltdown. Equally troubling to the BIS is that debt levels have increased by even larger amounts in a number of systemically important countries. It notes that since 2008 overall debt-to-GDP levels are up by 190 percent in China, by 70 percent in Canada and France, and by 50 percent in Japan. The BIS is also warning that credit-to-GDP gaps have reached levels signaling elevated risks in a number of important emerging market economies.

    The BIS does us a service by pointing out the basic choice with which the world’s central banks are now confronted. They can either get serious now about normalizing interest rates from their artificially low levels, even though this is likely to cause some immediate painful disruption in the global financial markets; or, alternately, they can delay the normalization process at the risk of creating an even greater debt bubble down the road. That course of action would lead to even greater market disruption when that bubble eventually bursts as it will inevitably in the end do.

    Donald Trump is accused of encouraging violence against reporters after tweeting a bizarre wrestling video of himself ‘beating up CNN’

    President Donald Trump tweeted an edited video clip of himself hitting Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 23, but the CNN logo was slapped over McMahon’s face. The 71-year-old president captioned the tweet he sent around 9.45am with ‘#FraudNewsCNN #FNN’. The official @POTUS handle also retweeted the video that appears to be a literal embodiment of his assault against the media. CNN’s Jim Acosta fired back and tweeted, ‘Isn’t pro wrestling fake?’

    Trump retorted, ‘Yes, just like your coverage.’ The tweet comes one day after Trump publicly pondered over ‘changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!’ and claimed his use of social media was ‘MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL.’ But three days prior, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed ‘the President in no way, form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence.’

  • SoCalBeachDude


    While many of the president’s supporters online reacted to the video with humor, the consensus among journalists seemed to be that Trump was inciting violence against the media.

    Trump Tweets Video of Himself Attacking CNN

    President Donald Trump is continuing his feud against the media. On Sunday morning, he tweeted a video showing him punching a man with the CNN logo superimposed on his head during a WWE wrestling match.

    The video follows Trump’s series of tweets Saturday where he renewed his resentment against what he called the “fake and fraudulent” media. He defended his amount of tweeting as “modern day presidential” and called out CNN saying, “I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!”

    The original video footage is from WrestleMania 23 in 2007 when Trump went up against WWE CEO Vince McMahon during a “Battle of the Billionaires” match. Both Trump and McMahon chose wrestlers to represent them in the ring.

    CNN Flashes Fake National Enquirer Cover…

    Let’s call this one “‘F***!’ news.”

    We’re told CNN flew into a panic on Friday after it accidentally aired a fake National Enquirer cover during Jake Tapper’s broadcast.

    Tapper did a segment on his “The Lead” show about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski’s claim that Donald Trump tried to blackmail them with a hit piece in the National Enquirer.

    During the piece, it showed a cover from the tabloid, which seemed to be about a scandal involving GOP senator Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi Cruz.

    Unfortunately, the cover is — literally — fake news.

    The cover — which has the headline “Heidi Cruz: Betrayed by Cheating Husband!” and promised details on a “sordid threesome, sleazy love letters and sensational photo proof — has never appeared on the National Enquirer, according to sources at the magazine.

    Fake News: Associated Press Engulfed in CNN-Level Scandal as It Covers Up Invention of Imaginary Pruitt Meeting

    The Associated Press is at it again, pushing more fake news. Sadly, the once-great news wire service is trying to cover up its mistake—nearly the exact mistake that cost three editorial staffers at CNN their jobs in a scandal that first exploded a week ago today.

    A Breitbart News investigation has led to the correction by the Associated Press–which originally resisted–of the fake news it printed as deeper questions of responsibility, accountability, and journalistic ethics consume the AP heading into Fourth of July weekend.

    This time, the Associated Press invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris, and then alleged that some kind of impropriety happened as a result.

    A Breitbart News investigation uncovered that no such “meetings” took place, the Senate Intelligence Committee was not investigating the matter, and the Treasury Department had already—at the urging of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to now Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before Trump’s inauguration—looked into it and determined the matter to be entirely “without merit.”
