Russian Hacking Is All About Ratings - NOT TRUTH!
Project Veritas has released a video of CNN Producer John Bonifield who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that there is no proof to CNN’s Russia narrative. “I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield says. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”
“It’s a business, people are like the media has an ethical phssssss…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.”
“I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”
According to the CNN Producer, business is booming. “Trump is good for business right now,” he concluded.
Responding to the video, President Trump took to Twitter:
Fake News CNN is looking at big management changes now that they got caught falsely pushing their phony Russian stories. Ratings way down!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 27, 2017
In a press briefing today, Sarah Huckabee Sanders took the podium in place of Press Secretary Sean Spicer. She called the behavior of CNN "A disgrace to all of media, to all of journalism." Sanders encouraged all Americans to watch the Project Veritas Video for themselves. Here are her comments:

GOOGLE GETS GORED - EU Doubles Record Fine:
In a landmark decision, the European Union has fined Google for manipulating it's search results - especially within it's online store. Google has been caught de-listing services like Kelkoo and Foundem, and using it's own platform to sell similar goods.
According to Bloomberg: Google is "liable to face civil actions for damages that can be brought before the courts of the member states by any person or business affected by its anti-competitive behavior," the EU said in its statement. "The new EU antitrust damages directive makes it easier for victims of anti-competitive practices to obtain damages."
The record-setting fine was $2,700,000,000 - doubling the previous record fine dispensed by the EU towards Intel some time ago.

What does this really mean though? Who cares that Google was manipulating it's store results? Well, anyone who cares about the free and open exchange of information should care.
Before we talk about "Russian Hacking" we really need to confront the data manipulation and censorship being perpetrated by MASSIVE companies like Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and the like.
For example, take a look at this graphic showing auto-suggestions for "Hillary Clinton is" on Google, Bing and Yahoo (no this isn't photoshopped) :
And another for "Bernie Sanders com"
And when applied to Donald Trump?
Alex Jones may not be right, but when it comes to identifying the "Info War", he's not wrong. Knowledge is power, and right now, the internet is the largest store of knowledge in human history. For most of the population, Google is the door to that bank of knowledge. If Google doesn't want you looking at something, they can very easily keep you from finding it.
With massive data powerhouses like Google, Amazon, Facebook and Twitter (all run by Marxist-Leftists) we have some serious problems lurking just around the corner if we don't keep both feet planted in the real-world.
Global Ransomware Attack Strikes Again:
(NY Times) - Computer systems from Russia to the United States were struck on Tuesday in an international cyberattack that bore similarities to a recent assault that crippled tens of thousands of machines worldwide.
And in the first confirmed cases in the United States, Merck, the drug giant, confirmed that its global computer networks had been hit, as did DLA Piper, the multinational law firm.
It remains unclear who is behind this cyberattack. Like the WannaCry attacks in May, the hack on Tuesday takes over computers and demands digital ransom from their owners to regain control.

Ransomware is a type of malicious software that blocks access to the victim's data or threatens to publish or delete it until a ransom is paid.
#ProudToBe YouTube Censors Comments On Video - Again:
Last week I told you about a YouTube video dedicated to World Refugee Day, a video paid for by George Soros funded Non-Profits that was totally rejected by the average YouTube viewer. Well, YouTube Spotlight is at it again with a video produced for #GayPride month.
I assume that they thought the video would go over with YouTube users better than the Refugee video last week, but it would appear as though they thought wrong.
As the views go up- so do the dislikes on the video... As of 7:30pm here are the statistics on the likes vs. dislikes:
It would seem as though the average Joe on YouTube has rejected YouTube's attempt to "Celebrate Pride".
The like/dislike ratio is only one part of the story though... The comments section has been raided by people offended and upset by YouTube's latest video... Not to mention internet trolls, anti-Semites and Homophobes. YouTube is deleting these comments almost as quickly as they are being posted:
At one point, the top comment on the video was by a user named "Adolph Hitler," and the comment had received over 800 "likes" before YouTube deleted the comment:
If you would like to see the video for yourself, I've embedded it for you below:
