Why do people think that CNN are biased leftist clowns?

#ExposeCNN: Project Veritas records CNN staffer admitting CNN’s pro-Democrat bias

Project Veritas has caught a highly-ranked CNN employee admitting pro-Democrat bias. This is amazing. The CNN employee was on Tinder. So, Project Veritas did the old “honeypot” trap = extracting information by using an attractive spy as bait. AND IT WORKED. They went on 5 dates, and Project Veritas got all the inside information about CNN’s bias.

Here’s the first article from the New York Post:

A CNN staffer admitted in a secretly recorded video that his network produced “propaganda” to oust former President Donald Trump during the 2020 presidential election — and bragged about their success.

Charlie Chester, a technical Director at the cable network, was filmed by Project Veritas during a series of fake Tinder dates as he explained how they “got Trump out” of office.

“Look what we did, we [CNN] 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,” Chester said, adding that he came to work at CNN because he ​​”wanted to be a part of that.”

“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was.”

Chester explained how they overdramatized Trump health issues by bringing in medical experts.

“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to all 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. I think that’s propaganda,” he said.

Wow, he admitted it. CNN employee admits that CNN is propaganda. We’d better be careful with this, because this is how the secular left takes power – by lying their way into power.

Second New York Post article:

The CNN staffer who was secretly recorded admitting the network used “propaganda” to help get Joe Biden elected president also said they played up the COVID-19 death toll for ratings — and that the order came down directly from top brass.

Charlie Chester, a technical Director at the cable network, was filmed by Project Veritas during a series of fake Tinder dates as he explained how “Fear really drives numbers.”

“COVID? Gangbusters with ratings,” Chester told the unidentified PV staffer.

“Which is why we constantly have the death toll on the side,” he continued, making reference to the coronavirus death tracker that would appear on the screen. “It would make our point better if [the COVID death toll] was higher.”

[…]Chester claimed there was a “red phone” that network president Jeff Zucker would use to call the control room to order producers to play up the Covid death count on screen.

This part is my favorite:

“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,” he said.

“And the only people we let on air, for the most part, are people that have a proven track record of taking the bait.”

Previously, I blogged about how CNN rehearses with guests what they want them to say before putting them on screen.

It’s so amazing that Project Veritas is able to get this information out into the public. I’ve blogged about academic studies that confirmed the pro-Democrat bias of the mainstream news media before. You can find out how they think by analyzing their sources, their words, and their political contributions. But this is something else. Now we have CNN admitting to their Democrat bias in their own words. What’s amazing is how many American voters still watch this garbage and think they are getting real journalism. CNN is fake news, and the people who watch it are lazy and uninformed.

  1. Your last two sentences are the rub. Much as I wish this would bring that awful network to its knees, you and I both know that the average CNN viewer, on hearing CNN’s people think CNN is propaganda, would say, “Yeah, so what?”

  2. And now the creator of Project Veritas, James O’keefe has been permanently banned from Twitter. So yes we know he was on to something and now unfortunately getting the old out will be that much harder.

  3. In his book Voltaire’s Bastards (1992), John Ralston Saul makes useful comments about the mindset and behaviour of our postmodern elites (of which mainstream media are a significant part):

    “Modern men of power come in many apparently different forms. But certain characteristics link them. First, a great difficulty in coming to terms with the democratic process. The talents of the technocrat do not suit public debate or an open relationship with the people. They become aloof in order to hide contempt; or ridiculously friendly, as if the people were idiots; or simply confused. Their innate talents lead them in other directions. They are masters of structure, of backstairs battles, of prestructuring or withholding information. They are merchants of knowledge, selling it in return for power.” (p. 106)

    “The modern technocrat attempts at all costs to initiate any dialogue. Thus he is able to set, in the first sentences of any exchange, the context of the theoretical discussion about to take place. In written arguments briefing books play the same role. The intended audience unthinkingly accepts the parameters laid out. It is then caught up in the coil of the resulting logic and kept busy rushing back and forth between the questions and answers which the predefined structure imposes. In the process it feels the satisfaction produced by simply keeping up or the despair of inferiority if it does not. There is no time for reflection or consideration of the basic parameters.” (p. 116)
