Project Veritas released part one of its "American Pravada" series late Monday. The video allegedly shows a CNN supervising producer saying the network's nonstop Russia coverage was about ratings and that it was "mostly bulls*** right now."

"I think the president is probably right to say, like, you are witch-hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof," says CNN Supervising Producer John Bonifield out of Atlanta.

According to Bonified, President Trump has been good for business, plain and simple.

"All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you're just like, that's adorable. That's adorable. This is a business," he says in one clip.

The goal of "American Pravada," according to Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe, "is to expose the real motivations behind the decision making process at our dominant media corporations." Part I is focused entirely on CNN.

What do you think? Is Project Veritas on to something?
