John Bonifield

CNN's credibility was rocked after an undercover investigator for Project Veritas infiltrated the newsroom and apparently planted fake Russia stories that were reported by CNN as fact.

CNN retracted a Russia collusion story from its website last week and apologized to an associate of President Trump who was falsely implicated in the article.

Three CNN employees were forced to resign on Monday, including the producer of the cable network's new investigative unit.

Thomas Frank, who wrote 2 Russia articles for that were never verified, also resigned.

Then the other shoe dropped.

A hidden video recorded by Project Veritas shows a CNN producer eagerly admitting the network ignored legitimate news stories for months in order to report on the Trump/Russia probe for ratings.

In the bombshell video, CNN producer John Bonifield admits CNN's non-stop Russia coverage is for ratings.

"Trump is good for business right now. Our ratings are incredible right now," he says.

Bonifield admitted CNN pushed the Russia narrative without any evidence.

"I haven't seen any good evidence to show that the president committed a crime," he says. "I think the president is probably right to say, like, 'look, you are witch hunting me. Like, you have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.'"

He admitted CNN didn't scrutinize former President Obama the way they are scrutinizing everything Trump does -- because viewers would have been turned off.

Bonifield also theorized that Hillary Clinton lost the election because she didn't play the game right.

    Anybody with half a brain can see CNN is pure bullshit at this point. They lied during the election and numerous other things. It sad this is what the American people have to deal with, fake news being passed as legitimate stories just for ratings smh. Stay woke lol

  • Kanyade

    Is the ratings race that bad? Is Sweeps Week no longer what it used to be?

  • Scromes1212

    The news cycle is going to have to slow down a bit. It's to the point that if journalists want to investigate a story, they can't because the story is old news by the time they get to the bottom of what's going on. Same with these bills they debate. Some of that stuff is a thousand pages long and everyone on tv is a expert on what's in it the day it comes out smh

  • Renee26

    LMAO...he could be giving out that thang (AIDS)...what kinda mess is that?

  • Quitedeliteful

    Most news on American television is fake news. I don't believe anything the talking heads say -- and they all say the same damn things. What is really the news, the things we really should know for our well being, our health and about our world are never on the news -- and if it is on the news it is only a snippet of what we need to know. I'd much rather watch news from the viewpoint of the rest of the world. They give news and viewpoints that we rarely get to see or hear in America.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    But Trump himself admitted that Russia meddled in the elections and blamed Obama.

  • hottlanta

    Dump knew about Russia's hacking before the election because he told Russia to hack into Hilary's email and get those so called deleted emails. Now he is saying he knew nothing about it. All during the election he kept saying it was rigged instead of discussing the issues and he said if he lost it would be rigged. What was up with that. Why would be say that over and over again. Dump had a full page spread of his lies. I look at various news agencies and do my own research before he became President. So all of this stuff they are discussing is not new. It is a lot going on. This doesn't clear him of anything. Fox News had me dying saying collusion is not a crime. They went on and on all day yesterday at their roundtable. Their attitude is so what. When Btill and Loretta was talking for 3 seconds on the tarmac they had a heart attack and said that was interfering in the Benghanzi investigation. Fire her and Hilary is guilty. Obama was dragged through the mud and they are still discussing him and he is gone. Hilary was PROVEN to not have done anything wrong by the Republicans and had 2 cases tossed out of court and they are still dragging her through the mud for Benghazi ad Dump will forever be dragged though the mud for Russia because after he fired Comey he had a bromace with Russia and this guy from Russia is mocking us in out house the "White House". We would never do that level of disrespect at Russia's house.

  • hottlanta

    Yep, here he is on the campaign trail in 2016 before he took office in 2017. How are you gonna tell about country to hack another American citizen.

  • hottlanta

    Where/Who is this? I am always a skeptic until I get more information.

  • Elevated Soul

    Good article....Those of us who are not influenced by CNN aka Fake News Network know that these lies passed off as news were and are presented for ratings purposes.

    Zombies will continue to have and defend the lies because they are stupid,nothing more or nothing less..."It is what is"...

    Shout-out to my truth seekers.....

  • Messenger

    Never have I known of a president so in the spotlight as Trump. This man is the epitome of confusion. What an embarrassment.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Omfg... I can't f'ing believe that Agent Orange was right about "fake news"! Smmfh. Wow, this whole f'up just gave journalism as a whole less credibility in the future when news stories are legit reporting against Trump.

  • Phillybruh

    Too much politics is never good, its been non-stop for two years now. Its time to give it a rest for at least a few months, every show is politics. Give me some news. And I still trust CNN more than the Potus and his administration!

    The masses are awakening from their sleep with this govt/illuminati BS of depopulating the world!


  • hottlanta

    Folks got a lot of real lawyers to fight this so called fake news. Them lawyers getting real money instead fake monopoly money. Wouldn't it be great if we had Comey on tape telling Dump the same thing. Something is fishy about all of this. I guess they feel like since the FBI didn't come forth to say Dump is cleared. we got this on tape from CNN. This is just as fake of news you can get. Somebody got some checks.

  • The Dutchess

    What annoys me the most about this is that Trump was right about something

  • wiseone

    All of it is not fake - most of it is true.

  • dontgetblocked

    After they gave the debate questions to Hillary, I was done. They have no credibility.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    Unbothered, what does this have to do with the investigations?

  • ?Time2Shine?

    Well, I have seen that people believe lies more than the truth.

    He has the kind of money to get the truth out of those who thought they were too cunning to expose their own.

    I keep telling people that this man has real secret supporters. In your face they'll act as though they hàte him, meanwhile recording every negative word you say, to report it back to him.

  • hottlanta

    New York post had a page full of Dump lies since day one over the weekend and we suppose to be mad at CNN for their lies. Still laughing about his biggest lie about those Carrier jobs staying here in the USA and they are still moving to Mexico. Even Joe in the backroom said he lied his azz off. Still waiting on those guys he paid 5 million dollars to go to Hawaii to get Obama birth certificate.

  • hottlanta

    Comey had one better he had a pen and paper.

  • hottlanta



    Not shocking there... Anybody with a brain could tell CNN was making up lies... Constantly...
    Who trusts a network that gives the candidate questions and stages fake Q & As with potential Presidential Candidates on questions they should be able to answer. I was done with CNN and NBC during the primaries... too bias lied too much and it has had a huge impact.
    People on this site repeat the lies CNN has spread daily.
