Throughout this week, James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas has been uncovering what’s going on inside the control rooms of CNN. John Bonifield, a producer with the network’s Atlanta office, was captured by PV reporters saying that the Russian collusion story was “mostly bulls**t,” but it’s great for ratings. CNN contributor and former green jobs czar under the Obama administration Van Jones was caught admitting that the Russia story is a “big nothing burger.” Now, associate producer for New Day Jimmy Carr is caught saying that American voters are “stupid as s**t,” and that the network feels President Trump is “f**king crazy.” Carr also takes a swipe at Kellyanne Conway, the Counselor to the President, as the blonde who looks like she got hit with a shovel. He also says that President Trump isn’t a Republican, and that he’s probably paid for abortions.
Concerning party affiliation, yes—Trump isn’t a conservative Republican. He’s a right-leaning populist, though alleging that he paid for abortions without offering any proof is; well—in keeping with CNN’s standards nowadays. Yes, some of their reports are fine, but when it comes to Trump and especially Russia—things have gone off the hinges.
PV Reporter 2: CNN is impartial, right?
Jimmy Carr: In theory
PV Reporter 2: What’s the view of Trump in like the media circle and places?
Carr: On the inside, we all recognize he is a clown, that he is hilariously unqualified for this, he’s really bad at this and that he does not have America’s best interests. We recognize he’s just f**king crazy.”
Here’s the deal, this is a man who’s not actually a Republican. He’s not actually a Republican. He just adopted that because that was the party he thought he could win in. He doesn’t believe anything that these people believe.
The man is on his third wife. I guarantee you he’s paid for abortions. He doesn’t give a s**t about abortion. He doesn’t care about gay marriage. He doesn’t even really care about the budget.
PV Reporter 1: Would it be fair to question the, I don’t want to be rude here, I’ll be careful how I put it, you’re apparently some percentage Irish or Scottish. Would it be fair to question the intellect of the American voter?
Carr: Oh no. They’re stupid as s**t.
Now, and of course the thing that pisses the White House off so much, because we actually had that awful Kellyanne Conway. You know, the blonde.
PV Reporter 2: Who?
Carr: Kellyanne Conway
PV Reporter 2: What does she look like? Is she the one with the…
Carr: She looks like she got hit with a shovel.
Van Jones has tried to push back on his on-camera role in these investigations, calling them a hoax (via The Hill):
“If you take any one line of my argument out of context, you can use it to pull off a hoax. That’s what O’Keefe’s minions did,” Jones wrote in the CNN article.
“The notion that I think Trump is innocent of all wrongdoing in Russiagate is ludicrous. But perhaps the people on team Trump can afford to live in a fantasy world," he continued.
In both cases, Jones and Bonifield are admitting that there is nothing to the Russian collusion hysteria engulfing the news media. In both cases, the two are admitting that the story is shoddy, with Bonifield saying it’s great for CNN’s finances. Even if there was selective editing, you can't edit that. They said it. O’Keefe tried to confront network president Jeff Zucker outside of his home in New York City. He didn’t feel like talking.
