A reporter with CNN admitted on air that no one actually cares about the Russia collusion theory that the network has been hawking for over a year.
The revealing comment was made by CNN reporter Maeve Reston, who said Sunday that Americans she has spoken to are simply beyond caring about the issue.
Reston said that people no longer have fears about economic downturn.
“Remember, even in 2016 when we went out to these swing states and talked to voters, there was still this fear that things were suddenly going to turn down again,” Reston said.
“You don’t feel that as much anymore, and I’m so interested to see how the Russia investigation affects things, because so far, out in these districts when you talk to people about Russia, and that’s all we talk about at CNN basically, they say they don’t care.” the reporter added.
“It doesn’t have any effect on their lives,” Reston clarified.
In a further CNN broadcast Sunday, commentator Jeff Greenfield pointed out that CNN has hyped the Russia angle so much that anyone watching would think President Trump was about to be indicted.
Greenfield noted that the only people watching are those who want their opinions re-confirming.
“And I was told it’s like sinking into a nice warm bath. And I think on both sides of the divide, people are sinking into nice warm baths to reconfirm what they believe.” Greenfield said.
In other words, CNN is a leftist echo chamber.
Last year a CNN producer was caught on camera by Project Veritas essentially admitting that the only reason the network has pushed the Russia angle so consistently is because it wants to attract anti-Trump viewers:
In the video John Bonifield noted that CNN CEO Jeff Zucker ordered staff to get back to the Russia collusion story following coverage of Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord for two days. It is thought that ratings fell in that time, prompting the decision.
“All the nice cutesey ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you’re like: ‘That’s adorable,’” Bonifield said, adding “This is a business.”
