CNN seems to have been exposed once again by Project Veritas.
The CNN technical director Charlie Chester, who was caught on undercover video bragging up his network’s “propaganda” to a Veritas operative he met on Tinder, appears to be completely busted explaining how the network’s narratives fueled “mostly peaceful” race riots that ravaged American cities throughout 2020.
Chester admits that CNN suppressed the statistical evidence that many victims of Asian “hate crimes” were attacked by black Americans.
“I was trying to do some research on the Asian hate, like the people [who] are getting attacked and whatnot. A bunch of black men have been attacking Asians. I’m like ‘What are you doing? Like, we [CNN] are trying to help BLM,’” he said.
“The optics of that are not good,” Chester confessed. “These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements, because the far left will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess.”
Project Veritas notes that Chester admitted that “CNN refuses to report on racial issues, unless it directly implicates white people.”
“I haven’t seen anything about focusing on the color of people’s skin that aren’t white. They [CNN] just aren’t saying anything. You know what I mean?” he asked rhetorically.
“You can shape an entire people’s perception about anything [depending] on how you do it,” Chester added.
On, Thursday, Project Veritas released a video exposing CNN Director Charlie Chester, who “admitted that his network engaged in propaganda to benefit Biden’s candidacy during the 2020 election to the detriment of then-President Trump,” the non-profit organization said. “Chester also said CNN has a pre-determined agenda when reporting on COVID-19 and climate change.”
“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 revealed in shocking fashion.
Chester admitted that CNN engaged in “propaganda” when covering Trump’s health as compared to Biden’s health.
“[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,” the former CNN director said. “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 admitted.
On Wednesday, it was revealed that Project Veritas is suing CNN for defamation. “We think we can win,” the group’s founder James O’Keefe said.
