The decade's most triggering comedy
James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released explosive video on Wednesday in the second installment of their latest #ExposeCNN series. The video showed a CNN director claiming that the network’s reporters manipulate people and that the far-left network only has people go on television who “have a proven track record of taking” the network’s “bait.”
The videos feature CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester speaking to an undercover Project Veritas journalist. The first batch of videos, released on Monday, featured Chester saying that the network worked to get President Donald Trump out of office, that they create “propaganda” and that they plan to use “fear” to advance their climate agenda.
Chester said that the network is aggressively covering allegations made against Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) “to keep hurting him” because he was a “problem” for the Democrat Party and that it would be “great” for Democrats if he was removed from Congress.
In the latest batch of videos, Chester said:
Speaking on ratings from the coronavirus pandemic, Chester said that the way the network covered the pandemic made some people inside the network essentially wish that the daily statistics were “higher,” an incentive structure he said was a “problem” because it was perverse in nature.
Chester said that part of the reason that the network covered the pandemic the way that they did was because “fear really drives numbers” and it “keeps you tuned in.”
Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, noted how damaging the segment was to the credibility of those who appear on the network.
“The thing he admits at the end about the only voices they allow on air being the ones that are easily controlled is devastating to every CNN reporter/contributor/host’s credibility,” Hemingway said. “Not that wise people needed to have him admit that.”
