The undercover video confessions of a CNN producer released Monday night by The Mighty James O'Keefe's Project Veritas is stunning in two respects. The first is that nothing the CNN producers says is in the least surprising. We already knew CNN was a left-wing propaganda network dedicated to spreading fake news. The other surprise, though, is how shocking it is to hear this truth spoken so matter-of-factly. Especially the truth about not scrutinizing Obama.
Of course, the biggest bombshell confession is the admission from this producer that the Trump/Russia thing is fake news (or as he puts it: "bullsh*t"). Furthermore, he confesses that CNN knows it is fake news. Nevertheless, he assures us, CNN is still intentionally pushing what it knows is fake news to appeal to their rabidly partisan viewers.
But there is another part of this startling video confession that is getting less attention but is just as illuminating, the part where this producer admits that CNN never scrutinized President Obama in the same way they do Trump. The rationale for this is just as jaw-dropping: CNN wants to appease a left-wing audience:
I think that there are a lot of like, liberal CNN viewers who want to see Trump really get scrutinized, and I think if we would have behaved that way with President Obama, and scrutinized everything that he was doing with as much scrutiny as we apply to Donald Trump, I think our viewers would’ve been turned off. I think they would have felt like we were attacking him. I think our viewers, right now, and I’m not saying all our viewers are like super liberals, I think there’s just a lot of them.
Again, we all knew this. But still … wow.
CNN is currently in a credibility death spiral — from which it will never recover.
