    CNN producer admits Russia narrative is ‘bullsh*t,’ just for ‘ratings’ (VIDEO)

    “Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it,” an email from a CNN spokesman to the Daily Beast reads. “CNN stands by our medical producer John Bonifield,” it said.

    CNN Health supervising producer Bonifield, who is not involved in the channel’s political coverage, was videotaped saying the company does not have any evidence to support its Russia-Trump narrative, driven mostly by the desire for ratings.

    “It’s mostly bullsh*t right now. Like, we don’t have any big giant proof,” the CNN producer can be heard saying in the video, adding that US President Donald Trump is “probably right” to accuse them of a conducting a witch-hunt.

    The revelation was featured in a Project Veritas sting, led by controversial conservative activist James O’Keefe.
