The Cable News Network (now called CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news 24-hour television network. CNN has been called “American Pravda” by those who believe that it serves a propaganda function similar to the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. “cnn is the american pravda, and should die. soon” was posted on Twitter on July 27, 2012. “American Pravda: CNN Producer Says Russia Narrative ‘bullsh*t’” by Project Veritas on YouTube on June 26, 2017 helped to popularize the “American Pravda” nickname.

The Associated Press (AP) newsgathering service has also been nicknamed “American Pravda.”

CNN has also been nicknamed the “Chicken Noodle News” (cited in print since 1981), the “Communist News Network” (cited in print since 1991), the “Clinton News Network” (cited in print since 1992), “Certainly Not News” (cited in print since 1993), the “CIA News Network” (cited in print since 1997), the “Criminal News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Corporate News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the <“Counterfeit New Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Cartoon News Network” (cited in print since 2000), “Crescent News Network” (cited in print since 2002) and “Crap Not News” (cited in print since 2007).

In the recent video footage obtained by Project Veritas, John Bonifield a Sr. Producer at CNN, admits to several beliefs that are in direct conflict with the official CNN narrative that Trump has colluded with Russia, and that Russia has interfered with the 2016 election. Bonifield expresses clear doubts that there is a fire behind the Russia smoke, stating, “I haven’t seen any good enough evidence to show that the President committed a crime.” He also confirms suspicions that CNN staff is ideologically biased against Trump, stating, “I know a lot of people don’t like him and they’d like to see him get kicked out of office…”
