Project Veritas dropped a new video on Tuesday that reveals CNN engaging intentionally in creating and spreading propaganda to boost Joe Biden's campaign during the 2020 election season.
CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester was caught admitting that CNN used their platform to help Joe Biden's presidential campaign, to the detriment of then President Donald Trump.
Chester also admitted that the network had a specific, pre-determined perspective on climate change and COVID-19.
In the video, CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester says "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…I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that."
"[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 says.
In an effort to give the exact opposite treatment to Biden, 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."
After the election season, Chester can be heard to remark that their first goal was to get Trump out of office, and that the next thing will be to focus on Biden's pet issue, climate change.
As regards COVID-19, precautions, and the public's reaction to it, Chester said "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."
"It's going to be our [CNN’s] focus," Chester said. "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 for climate change awareness."
As far as COVID is concerned? That's practically a thing of the past, Chester said. "It [COVID] will 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…Climate change is going to be the next COVID thing for CNN…Fear sells."
