(BLP) – CNN has been adamantly denying that anti-Kavanaugh protesters are being paid. Their star anchor Chris Cuomo even brought Ana Maria Archila, the woman from the now-famous elevator confrontation of Sen. Jeff Flake on his show to deny being paid, despite running an organization largely funded by George Soros.
But just hours after that segment, CNN correspondent Joe Johns admitted he has met paid protesters.

Talking about President Donald Trump’s recent Tweet about paid protesters with “expensive signs,” he clumsily tried to dispel the claim.
Johns talks about reports, “mostly from conservative media,” about cash exchanging hands at protests against Kavanaugh. After trying to say they aren’t being paid, he admits protesters confirmed the cash exchanges, saying it was meant as bail money for protesters causing disruptions.
“What the protesters tell me that’s about, is bail,” Johns stated. “Essentially a lot of people get arrested, and they have to forfeit, put up $50 bail in order to get free of the police.”
What Johns is talking about is something that is well known, that left-leaning media outlets have avoided talking about.
They are attempting to claim that these protesters are organic, with only some guidance from larger organizers. But based on the fantastic reporting from CNN’s Joe Johns we know that isn’t true.
