CNN isn’t having a good week. On Friday the network had to retract a Trump-Russia scandal story after it was proven to be false, and on Monday three senior staff members resigned because of their roll in the story.
On Tuesday morning, CNN’s woes continued. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a video showing CNN producer John Bonifield admitting that the network has no proof of any collusion between the Trump administration and Russia — they’re just doing it for the ratings, Breitbart reported.
“Could be bulls***. I mean, it’s mostly bulls*** right now,” Bonifield said in the undercover video. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof. Then they say, well there’s still an investigation going on. And you’re like, yeah, I don’t know. If they were finding something we would know about it.”
Ready for the real kicker?

“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,” he stated.
Well there you have it, folks. A CNN producer just admitted, on camera, that not only is there no actual proof of collusion, and that their mortal enemy, Donald Trump, is actually right.
Anyone care to take a bet on how long it is before Bonifield is asked to resign?
You can watch the full interview here. Warning, strong language:
In the video, Bonifield also admits that the network has been playing up the Russia narrative because it’s good for ratings.
“Our ratings are incredible right now,” he stated. “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 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.’”
Why bother with the real news if the fake news gives you better ratings, right CNN?
This isn’t exactly a surprise. Many Americans have known for a long time that CNN is biased against Trump. However, it’s quite shocking to hear someone openly admit exactly what CNN is doing.
