    Raw footage has been leaked documenting producers joking with CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux about President-elect Donald Trump’s plane crashing before Malveaux went live covering the Carrier press conference featuring Trump and his vice-president, Mike Pence.

    In the leaked clip, obtained by FTVLive, Malveaux is seen preparing to go live and asking what details she should share. An off-camera producer is then heard saying, “if I do this, it means he landed,” then a few moments later adding, "that means his plane's crashed — just kidding."

    Malveaux looks stunned and surprised at the comment, before laughing it off.

    Scott Jones of FTVLive told Sputnik News that he was given the video by a “source,” but would not elaborate.

    CNN has apologized to the Trump transition team and disciplined the unnamed producer.

    “An unfortunate and inappropriate remark was made by one of our producers off camera yesterday,” a spokesperson for CNN told TVNewser. “We have apologized to the Trump transition team, and the producer has been disciplined.”

    Trump and his supporters have long asserted that CNN is biased against him, even nicknaming the station the “Clinton News Network” during the election.

    During a private meeting with high-profile members of the press in November, Trump reportedly lashed out at Jeff Zucker, CNN's president.

    "Trump kept saying, 'We're in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong,'" a source who was present at the event told the New York Post. "He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars.”

    "I hate your network. Everyone at CNN is a liar, and you should be ashamed,” the president-elect reportedly told Zucker.

    With this latest video, it seems unlikely that the relationship will improve.

      Rob Malone, here in facebook, is correct. Now, the problem I see is that the Kennedy family doesn't go public on all these assassinations which are historically so many that I have lost count, but at least, 8 US Presidents.

      Such things are not a joking matter. Unfortunately there are people out there especially from the establishment who want to discredit him as illegitimate. Those people have no respect for the US electoral system, nor the Constitution, they haven't for a long time. Now they are showing themselves true to form.

      I say all those involved in this sick joke should be interviewed by the secret service as this is very serious. Then after that they should be blacklisted from ever having a media job. CNN has shown bias and cheating let's not forget the debate questions given to Hillary by a CNN employee. Maybe Trump will have them fined and shut down as the stories they tell are lies. Russia messing with our elections I think not ,CNN yes messing with the election in over 100 fraudulent and slandering ways. Blame CNN not Russia!!

      The whole CNN staff is deplorable. A bunch of corrupt spoiled little crying liberals. Anyone with half a brain does not watch CNN. CNN IS THE JERRY SPRINGER OF THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA NETWORKS. ......... They are known for lying and being biased about the news.
