Watch CNN President Jeff Zucker Run When Confronted by Project Veritas

Published

on

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe tracked down CNN President Jeff Zucker outside his residence in New York City to question him about their American Pravda series, which included a producer saying that the orders for the Russian witch hunt was coming from the top.

Zucker ignored O’Keefe and quickly hopped into the waiting vehicle.

Earlier this week, Veritas released explosive footage of CNN producer John Bonifield admitting that the network’s coverage is “mostly bullshit” — and being done by direct order of Zucker.

The video went massively viral, and was even promoted by Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during Tuesday’s press briefing.

“There’s a video out there circulating right now, whether it’s accurate or not, I don’t know, but I would encourage everybody in this room, and frankly, everybody across the country to take a look at it,” Huckabee Sanders stated. “If it is accurate, I think it’s a disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism. I think we have gone to a place where if the media can’t be trusted to report the news, then that’s a dangerous place for America, and if that’s the place where certain outlets are going, particularly for the purpose of spiking ratings, and if that’s coming from the top, that’s even more scary, and that’s even more disgraceful.”

Veritas also released a video of a phone conversation O’Keefe had with the Washington Post’s Paul Farhi on Thursday, in which he confronts the reporter over a lie that he had published in his coverage of the American Pravda videos.

Farhi had claimed that O’Keefe did not disclose that Bonifield in based in Atlanta, despite the fact that it is plainly stated during the introduction of the Veritas video.

“[The video] doesn’t disclose that he is based in Atlanta — not in Washington or New York, where most of CNN’s coverage of national affairs and politics are produced,” Farhi wrote.

“There’s a factual error that says i did not mention that john was based in Atlanta,” O’Keefe says during the call. “In my on-camera in the video I clearly state that he, you know, he’s from Atlanta. Can you publish a retraction on that?”

“Let me look into it,” Farhi says. “Yes, if we got it wrong we got it wrong, we’ll correct.”

In subsequent emails, Farhi says that the paper is sticking by the fake news and will not be publishing a retraction. He also tells O’Keefe to “drop dead.”

CNN has acknowledged in a statement that the American Pravda video of Bonifield is legitimate, but stood by him, claiming that they embrace diversity of “personal opinion.” They did not respond to the allegations that their witch hunt is being directed from the top, which is what O’Keefe was attempting to get answers about in the video released on Thursday.

“CNN stands by our medical producer John Bonifield.  Diversity of personal opinion is what makes CNN strong, we welcome it and embrace it,” the network said in a statement.

On Wednesday, Veritas released another video where hidden cameras revealed CNN’s superstar activist and commentator Van Jones saying that the Russia narrative is a “big nothingburger.”

During a press conference from CPAC in February, O’Keefe offered a $10,000 reward for content exposing media malfeasance — but Project Veritas Communications Director Steve Gordon told Big League that this week’s videos came from an undercover journalist with Veritas, not a leak.

A Veritas insider has confirmed to Big League that there are still more videos that will be released, though they did not provide information on when.

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic

Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.

Published

on

The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.

“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.

“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.

“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”

The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.

“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.

“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.

By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
