Get your popcorn ready: Project Veritas’s attack on the mainstream media is underway.
Project Veritas had embarrassed CNN not once but twice this week – and it’s only Wednesday. On Monday, the group caught CNN medical producer John Bonfield on camera confessing that there was no “big proof” of any secret backdoor deals made between US President Donald Trump and the Russian government prior to his election in November 2016, but the network loved the "Russia story" because "our ratings are incredible right now."
“We’re going for the jugular of the mainstream media,” Project Veritas spokesman Stephen Gordon told Radio Sputnik’s Fault Lines with Lee Stranahan and Garland Nixon on Wednesday. “We want to shut you down for the liars you are … every time you lie; we’re going to catch you in it.”
Claims of Russian "hacking" the US vote have lacked the robust proof needed for such explosive charges, and many have been quietly retracted. The FBI never looked at the DNC’s servers before alleging a "Russian hack." The contractor relied on to do the FBI’s forensics, CrowdStrike, has a history of twisting the truth. Nearly half of the sketchy IP addresses cited in the US intelligence community’s report on "Russian Malicious Cyber Activity" were generic Tor exit nodes.
CNN reporters are in full damage control mode on social media, where after being busted on publishing "very fake news," as Breitbart called it, they are now outright lying in an attempt to cover up their previous lies.
Quick recap: In June 2017 alone, CNN lied about what James Comey was going to say during Senate hearings, then after his prepared statement went live, they changed their headline, changed their story and added a correction and editors note. Then they published an outright false story which they were forced to retract, delete and apologize for. Then James O'Keefe from Project Veritas published undercover videos of a CNN producer admitting that their Russia coverage was bullsh*t and that President Trump was right in calling it a "witch hunt."
NOTE- O'Keefe now says part 2 of the "American Pravda: CNN" will be released on Wednesday, June 28, 2017. His statement, as a response to another CNN reporter that claims the CNN producer shown in the video above "isn't involved in Russia or Trump coverage," to which O'Keefe responded "That's just the reaction we were expecting and it just punctuates the video we release about CNN tomorrow."
Caught up? Good, because the fallout, not just from the false articles and fake news being pushed by CNN, but more from their attempts at damage control as well as other media outlets circling the wagons in an attempt to protect CNN, has been brutal.
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.
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.
In reaction to the inaccurate, poorly sourced, false story that CNN retracted, deleted and apologized for, they network claimed the three journalists responsible for the story, Tom Frank, editor Eric Lichtblau and Lex Haris, had "resigned." Well, we find out now, that response was also misleading as the victim of their lies, Anthony Scaramucci, had threatened CNN with a 100 million dollar libel suit, forced them to retract the story, and "They called them in and said they’d pay out their contracts, but they should leave immediately."
More major fallout occurred during the White House press briefing, when other outlets decided to try to help CNN out, so rather than asking WH Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders policy questions on any number of topics, the journalist instead decided to ask her about President Trump's reaction to CNN's fake news story, the retraction and the so-called resignations, asking why that was not enough.
CNN is not alone on the hot seat this week, as the New York Times is being sued by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, for defamation after they also published a very fake news story after the VA shooting of GOP congressman, incorrectly accusing her in a June 14 editorial of inciting Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep. Gabby Giffords in 2011, using the reference in a claim of the shootings being part of a "sickeningly familiar pattern."
The paper said Palin incited the shooting, which left congresswoman Gabby Giffords with a severe brain injury, through an ad from her PAC that put “Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.”
In fact, the ad never put Giffords or any other individual in the cross hairs — forcing the newspaper of record to issue an embarrassing correction.
The correction, posted on June 16th, admitted that The Times “incorrectly described a map distributed by a political action committee before that shooting.”
The map “depicted electoral districts, not individual Democratic lawmakers, beneath stylized cross hairs,” the correction said.
The mainstream media is being called out by many of its own media insiders for their reckless disregard of the facts in their attempt to destroy the President, and the chickens are finally coming home to roost as the public, the White House and "we the people" are finally calling them out for their false reporting, and their war on America because we dared vote a candidate in that they did not want elected.
Stay Tuned....... Project Veritas is about to release America Pravda: CNN Part 2.
