Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe released secret recordings Tuesday showing a CNN employee boasting of how they “got Trump out.”
In the clips, CNN Techincal Director Charlie Chester suggested he came to the network with two goals in mind: support then-candidate Joe Biden and smear Trump, according to the secret recordings.
CNN’s focus: “Get Trump out of office”
The clips, which are edited bits of comments Chester made, show the director on a date with an undercover Project Veritas worker, bragging that he was “one step down from director,” though according to Mediate, the role of the technical director has nothing to do with creating the content for the network’s programming.
“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it, and I 100% 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,” Chester is heard telling a female Project Veritas reporter.
In another instance, he appears to admit that CNN engaged in “propaganda” when reporting on Trump’s health and said they deliberately aired baseless information that Trump was “neurologically damaged, and he was losing it.”
“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. 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,” Chester said.
“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,” he says.
“It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be climate change awareness,” he adds.
“We would always show shots of him jogging. Like … ‘I’m healthy, and blah, blah, blah,’” he said.
‘Ok’ If Biden died?
At one point, Chester says he would be okay if Biden died and Vice President Kamala Harris took over as president, according to Project Veritas.
“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, ‘You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. “And I’m like, ‘He’s not going to f*cking die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b*tch in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f*cking real, and better than what we got regardless.”
In October 2019, Project Veritas released secret footage of CNN President Jeff Zucker directing the network to focus on Trump’s impeachment as their primary story.
“I want to stay with this, our top, top – our own reporters, our own political analysts, the top, the top [unintelligible] we have. Okay, so make sure we’re doing that. All these moves are moves towards impeachment. So, don’t – don’t lose sight of what the biggest story is.”
Hey …. visit CNN sometime and ask yourself, “Would this be any different if it were produced by the Democratic party?” #DontTrustTheMedia
