CNN producer, John Bonifield: “Russia narrative is bullsh*t, CNN covers Russia only because it gives good ratings”

“The Russia story is basically bullsh*t, it’s mainly bullsh*t right now, we don’t have any giant proof. I just feel that they don’t really have it, but they want to keep digging. We cover it because it gives good ratings,” states CNN supervising producer, John Bonifield, who has worked for CNN for 15 years. “It’ a business. People are like, the media has ethics … All the nicecy cute little ethics that used to be talked about in journalism school, that’s adorable. But this is business. They gotta do what they gotta do to make the money, I think. And so I love the news business, but I am very cynical about it, and at the same time so are most of my colleagues.”
