VAN JONES ADMITS Russian Narrative Is A Big NOTHING (VIDEO)
CNN must be so proud.
Once again the Fake News Network is caught red-handed.
James O’Keefe made a name for himself going undercover with hidden cameras. His website, Project Veritas, seeks to expose the truth in WikiLeaks fashion. In fact, earlier this year, we reported that O’Keefe offered a $10,000 reward to help expose the Fake News. In more than 200 hours of secret tapes recorded at CNN, O’Keefe gave us a sneak peak into the inner-workings of the network.
One of the juicy tidbits shows Richard Griffiths, Vice President and Senior Editorial Director of CNN holding a meeting with interns. Griffiths is heard asking “If we are journalists, what is our roles as journalists? What is the fundamental role, for us to do?” The interns all chime in “tell a story” like they’ve got this answer down. But Griffiths takes it a step further when he says “there’s a secondary corollary to that, right? Aid the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable!”
So for months now, we’ve known O’Keefe’s target. And it’s no surprise that O’Keefe went after Van Jones.
The History of Jones
Jones has a long list of radical behavior. It’s surprising that even CNN would want him.
According to Real Clear Politics:
Mr. Jones was arrested during the rioting in Los Angeles in 1992 that followed the acquittal of the police officers who beat Rodney King. Mr. Jones spoke of that experience in a 2005 interview:
“I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28, and then the verdicts came down on April 29,” he told the East Bay Express. “By August, I was a communist.”
Mr. Jones attributed his conversion to the people he met during his incarceration:
“I met all these radical young people of color, I mean really radical, communists and anarchists,” he said. “It was like ‘this is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next 10 years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.”
Mr. Jones was arrested again in 1999 during the anti-free trade riots in Seattle.
In 1994, Mr. Jones was one of the founders of STORM, a Marxist-Leninist group whose hero was Chinese Communist dictator Mao Tse Tung.
In 2004 he had signed a petition to investigate whether the Bush administration had been behind the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Jones acknowledged signing the petition but claimed he hadn’t read it carefully and that it did not represent his views. The veracity of this claim was called into question when it was reported that Mr. Jones had been one of the organizers of a “truther” rally in San Francisco in January 2002.
Reporters also uncovered a number of racist statements Mr. Jones has made, including this one from January of last year: “the white polluters and white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people-of-color communities.”
Despite all that, Obama hired him anyway as the Czar of Green Jobs. And when the truth came out about his past, Jones started screaming at everyone else for spreading “lies” about him.
Now, Jones wrote an article denying the truth of this video.
However, it’s pretty clear. CNN is coming apart at the seams. In fact, according to this video, even CNN producers agree that the Russian story was just a ratings game. It won’t be long before CNN loses their last shred of credibility. I’m just waiting for the Jim Acosta takedown! That will be the icing on the cake.
