CNN has been dragging itself through the mud for the better part of the last week.
On Friday, it was revealed that the network had published a fake story about the Trump-Russia controversy.
In response, CNN’s editor issued a statement apologizing for the story and saying that the network would be changing its submission guidelines and several people resigned from the network.
On Tuesday morning, a video showed CNN producer John Bonifield admitting that the network has no proof that Trump colluded with the Russians.
“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.”
“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.

You can see the full interview below:
In the video, Bonifield suggested that CNN’s ratings were really low and that the network kept reporting on Russia because it brought in good 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.’”
CNN has no shame. Clearly, they do not care about journalistic integrity at all. I for one do not blame Trump for constantly bashing CNN for spreading “fake news,” because it has now been proven true.
