This exposé just confirms what we already know about the leftwing MSM.
Project Veritas released its third installment of the #ExposeCNN series today, which features CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester opening up about the network’s unwillingness to cover racial issues in an objective manner.
Chester said he attempted to learn about Asian hate crimes and found that Black-on-Asian crime was high, but decided to refrain from delving deeper into the topic because it does not help Black Lives Matters’ narrative.
“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.
Chester continued, “The optics of that are not good. 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.”
Chester admitted to a Veritas journalist 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?”
CNN has been covering the Black Lives Matter riots taking place in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota consistently during the last three days. Chester’s revelations bring into question whether or not the network is impartial on the issue of race.
The technical director also corroborated what he said in earlier #ExposeCNN installments about propaganda and manipulating the public.
“You can shape an entire people’s perception about anything [depending] on how you do it,” Chester said.
Project Veritas released the second installment of a new #ExposeCNN series today, featuring Technical Director Charlie Chester – who described how the network uses “manipulation” to shape public opinion and garner higher ratings.
CNN Director Charlie Chester Reveals How Network Practices ‘Manipulation’ to ‘Change the World’: ‘There’s an Art to Manipulation…
……“Any reporter on CNN — what they’re actually doing is they’re telling the person what to say… It’s always like leading them in a direction before they even open their mouths. The only people that we [CNN] will let on the air, for the most part, are people that have a proven track record of taking the bait,” Chester explained.
“I think there’s an art to manipulation…Inflection, saying things twice — there’s little subtleties to how to manipulate people…I mean, it’s enough to change the world, you know?”
“Like, why isn’t it high enough, you know, today? Like it would make our point better if it was higher. And I’m like, what am I f***ing rallying for? That’s a problem that we’re doing that.”
Chester also described how CNN has used the COVID-19 pandemic to keep viewers hooked on the screen.
“It’s fear. Fear really drives numbers – [TV ratings],” Chester said. “Fear is the thing that keeps you tuned in.”
He added, “COVID? Gangbusters with ratings, right? Which is why we [CNN] constantly have the [COVID] death toll on the side.”
Chester said Jeff Zucker – the network’s president –- would call the CNN newsroom during live TV segments and order the staff to keep COVID death tolls on the screen to capture viewers’ attention.
Chester admitted, “The special red phone rings and this producer picks it up. You hear [murmurs] and every so often they put it on speaker and it’s the head of the network being like, ‘There’s nothing that you’re doing right now that makes me want to stick, put the [COVID death toll] numbers back up, because that’s the most enticing thing that we had. So, put it back up.”
Chester went on to explain how his network manipulates the public and attempts to hide their tactics, in order to be successful in achieving personal political agendas.
After the video was aired, James O’Keefe followed up by confronting the tech director and the results were hilarious.
Project Veritas released a new video today 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. Chester also said CNN has a pre-determined agenda when reporting on COVID-19 and climate change.
……Veritas Journalist: “I guess I have a confession. I worry about Biden and his health, I guess.”
CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester: “Your news health?”
Veritas Journalist: “What? No, I said Biden, our president.”
Chester: “Oh, his health.”
Veritas Journalist: “I want to take care of him and make sure he’s okay.”
Chester: “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.’”
Veritas Journalist: “Is that what we did? I don’t know. Like what do you mean?”
Chester: “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 say that COVID-19 media coverage should be coming to an end in the near future. He added that CNN is already preparing its shift in coverage to push and promote climate change fear.
“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.
Chester: “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.”
Veritas Journalist: “What does that look like?”
Chester: “I don’t know. I’m not sure. I have a feeling that it’s going to be like, constantly showing videos of decline in ice, and weather warming up, and like the effects it’s having on the economy–”
Veritas Journalist: “Who decides that?”
Chester: “Head of the network.”
Veritas Journalist: “Who is that? Is that [Jeff] Zucker?”
Chester: “Zucker, yeah. I imagine that he’s got his council and they’ve all like, discussed, like where they think–”
Veritas Journalist: “So, that’s like the next–”
Chester: “Pandemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity. 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.”
Veritas Journalist: “So, climate change overload.”
Chester: “Be prepared, it’s coming. Climate change is going to be the next COVID thing for CNN.”
President Trump fought back against the hostile media hacks. And they hate him for it.
