CNN’s technical director was caught on video admitting that the cable “news” network traffics in propaganda under the guise of journalism in order achieve a desired political outcome.
The director, Charlie Chester, described in Part One of Project Veritas’ “CNN Exposed” series how the network used propaganda to benefit Joe Biden and get former President Trump voted out of office.
During a conversation with an undercover Project Veritas reporter, Chester also divulged that CNN plans to start hyping the climate change agenda as soon as the Covid-19 hysteria dies down, per CEO Jeff Zucker’s orders.
Chester proudly stated that CNN is responsible for getting Trump removed from office, and that he had in fact joined the network because he wanted to be a part of that effort.
“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.
Chester openly admitted that CNN engaged in “propaganda” when covering Trump’s health as compared to the much more frail 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. 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 told the Veritas reporter.
Chester explained how the propaganda network used shots of Biden jogging and/or wearing hip aviator sunglasses to deflect from his advanced age and promote the idea that he was healthy.
“He is definitely — the whole thing of him running during the entire — like run for the campaign. Showing him jogging is obviously deflection of his age and they’re [CNN] trying to make it like, ‘Oh, I’m healthy,” 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.”
Chester went on to predict that COVID-19 media hysteria would be coming to an end in the near future, and that CNN would be transitioning to promoting climate change hysteria to take its place.
“I think there’s a COVID fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN’s] going to latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is — will be open to it — we’re going to start focusing mainly on climate,” Chester said.
“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.”
Asked what that will look like, Chester said he wasn’t sure, but he had a feeling it would involve lots of videos of “decline in ice, and weather warming up,” and preaching about the effects climate change is having on the economy.”
When asked who decides that shift in focus, Chester said it was the head of the network, Jeff Zucker.
Chester pointed out that the pandemic storyline that they “beat to death” would inevitably “taper off,” but climate change has legs because it is allegedly a decades-long process.
“You know what I mean? Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit,” he said. “Be prepared, it’s coming. Climate change is going to be the next COVID thing for CNN.”
“You think it’s going to be just like — a lot of like, fear for the climate?” the Veritas journalist asked.
“Yeah. Fear sells,” Chester replied.
“CNN isn’t a news organization, they’re a Democrat Super PAC!!!” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. in reaction to the appalling video.
