The Truth Report: CNN Fake News Explosion
An ATP Report Production – On This Episode Barry Nussbaum discusses the constant barrage of fake news from CNN and why they are doing it.
Welcome to The Truth Report, I’m Barry Nussbaum.
Several weeks ago, we began reporting on the fake CNN news reports coming out of London after the horrible terrorist attacks. In particular, we did a full show on the 100% created Muslim mother’s march against terror that was completely created by CNN and broadcast worldwide. You would think after the outcry against CNN, they would’ve cleaned up their act, but that would be bad for ratings wouldn’t it? Today on The Truth Report we will discuss the truth behind CNN’s continued mission to create news where none exists.
Let’s start with what CNN did in London. You remember the story don’t you? Hundreds of Muslim mothers demonstrating en masse against radical Islam, but the truth was reported by somebody who happened to walk by and captured the entire staged story on a camera phone, proving that CNN quite simply made up the story. There were just a handful of the mothers, who were given signs, told where to stand, and the reporter is seen narrating as if there are a thousand ladies carrying signs in the London street. In truth, there were just 8 women arranged by the CNN reporter to fit her narrative.
Now we know about more fake news regarding CNN! This time it’s in the United States.
Three CNN employees handed in their resignations over a retracted story linking President Trump to Russia. The article was removed from CNN.com after the network decided it could no longer stand by its reporting.
“In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. Citing a single unnamed source, the story reported that Congress was investigating a “Russian investment fund with ties to Trump officials.”
For your information, the story was completely made up! How bad has it gotten at CNN? Top management announced that no more stories about Russia could run unless they had personal approval from the big bosses. That’s because of the fake, and now retracted story that falsely linked Trump supporter Anthony Scaramucci to a Russian investment fund run by a bank controlled by the Kremlin.
So, the CNN narrative is basically, this: Trump is the devil. All stories must fit that narrative. Reporters and producers know that the bosses want to see these stories on Trump and so the news is either found and reported, or just simply made up and reported based on unnamed sources.
It would have been very easy to have had this story verified and then killed before it aired. If it was this easy for Scaramucci to demonstrate after the fact that the story wasn’t true, then it would have been easy for them to check with him beforehand, if they’d wanted to.
Now comes an even bigger admission by a key CNN employee that they are actively making up the news, and you will now know why they are doing it.
CNN producer John Bonifield made the brazen admission of the network’s absence of journalistic bona fides to an undercover reporter from Project Veritas. It is captured on secret video cam.
“He not only gave us a tour of CNN’s main newsroom, he gave us a window into the editorial bias and anti-Trump agenda of the organization,” reporter James O’Keefe says as he narrates the video. O’Keefe continues: “our goal is to expose the real motivations behind the decision-making process at our dominant media corporations. Fake news. One story has monopolized President Trump’s time in office like no other, especially on CNN: Russia. In fact, since the inauguration, CNN has mentioned Russia on their air nearly 16,000 times. So, we sent our undercover reporters inside CNN to understand why and to determine if CNN even believes if the story is even real. Referring to the Trump-Russian connections, Bonifield says, “could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof. So, I just feel like they (referring to CNN producers and reporters) don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. 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. I haven’t seen any good evidence to show the President committed a crime.”
But CNN is doggedly pursuing the fanciful Russia story because those at the top of the network are focused on “ratings,” he says. So now here is why they are pushing out the made-up stories: “our ratings are incredible right now,” Bonifield says. The fact is, CNN had its most-watched first quarter in 14 years, both in the key demo and in total viewers. The producer continues (still on tape) “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 Jeff Zucker said in our internal meeting, good job everybody covering the climate accords, but we’re done with it let’s get back to Russia. So, even the climate accords, he was like a day or so, it’s okay, but we’re moving back to Russia,” Bonifield says. “It’s a business,” he adds.
By the way, the facts we just reviewed do not include the constant references to how bad Trump is which run nonstop on CNN. Obviously, the CNN bias is great for ratings and the fake news creating business is not hurting the CNN checkbook!
