This has not been a good week for the accredited media. Shortly after my article on Trump’s war on the media, two subversive videos started going viral on the internet, produced by the fake news outlet and terrorist organization, Project Veritas. The two videos purport to show CNN admitting that the media’s coverage of Trump’s Russian ties is a manufactured witch hunt, designed to delegitimatize the US president and justify war with Russia and Syria. Of course, the accredited media is rightfully ignoring these videos, as they have not yet been fact-checked by PolitiFact or verified by any accredited journalists.
The first video claims to show a CNN supervising producer supposedly agreeing with Trump that there is no evidence of his collusion with Russia:
Excuse me? Is John Bonifield a high-level anonymous source from the intelligence community? If not, he needs to be quiet! Is he really claiming that SEVENTEEN accredited intelligence agencies are lying?
The second video purports to show Van Jones saying that there is nothing to the Russia story:
But obviously, what Van Jones meant was that the anonymous sources couldn’t produce evidence because it’s all classified and secret, and therefore the investigation would probably be unfruitful. He wasn’t saying that there isn’t collusion – he was simply saying that they couldn’t prove it right now! Geez!
CNN’s star presenter, Brian Stelter, quickly denounced this lynching of the accredited media, calling it “anti-journalism”, and referring to an accredited report detailing the rise of anti-journalism in the 21st century.

This, along with the term “post-truth” has now been declared by progressives as the new buzzword of 2017, and I have added an anti-journalism flag to our flagging system accordingly.
Project Veritas needs to be investigated immediately for attempting to subvert journalism in America, and THIS needs to be the headline story reported by all accredited media outlets! Accredited journalists are protected by the first amendment and should be able to criticize the president without being HARASSED by right wing saboteurs with no formal qualifications!
