Project Veritas secretly recorded Charles Chester, a director at CNN who led CNN's coverage of the 2020 election. Here are the main (obvious) takeaways:
Removing Trump Was A Goal
"Our focus was to get Trump out of office"
“Look what we did, we got Trump out. I am 100 percent going to say it, and I 100 percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out... I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”
Insiders Understood CNN Was Propagandized
"We brought in so many medical people to tell a story that was all speculation that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to, you know, whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what, I think that’s propaganda."
Conscious Efforts Were Made To Cover Biden Positively
“We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric,”
Insiders Understand That CNN Manufactures Crises For Ratings
"[COVID] will taper off to a point that it’s not a problem, anymore. Climate change can take years, so [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit. … Climate change is going to be the next COVID thing for CNN. … Fear sells.”
CNN Manufactures Outrage Against Republican Threats
"If the agenda, say, is to get, like, Matt Gaetz right now, he's like this Republican," Chester began. "He's a problem for the Democratic Party because he's so conservative, right? And he can cause a lot of hiccups in passing of laws and whatnot. So, it would be great for the Democratic Party to get him out. So we're going to keep running those stories to keep hurting him and make it so that it can't be buried and, like, just settled outside of court. And just like, you know, if we keep pushing that, it's helping us."
"That's propaganda because it's helping us in some way"
CNN was once known as 'The Most Trusted Name In News.' Those days are gone. Today, CNN is known for being a partisan propaganda outlet for the Democratic party.
