Project Veritas released its second undercover video of a CNN director this week who claimed the network focuses on the art of manipulation.
CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester, also featured in the first video by Project Veritas, noted “The Most Trusted Name in News” is focusing on allegations concerning Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz because he was a problem for Democrats. Chester stated it would be great for Democrats if Gaetz was out of Congress.
Manipulation was a major emphasis in the latest undercover video. Chester said, “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?”
Many are also concerned at the CNN director’s comments about the people the network allows on the air. He stated, “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.”
Another topic in the wide-ranging video focused on the COVID-19 pandemic. Chester mentioned the network’s improved ratings during the height of the 2020 virus numbers. He noted some seemed to wish the daily statistics were higher, but that this was a concern because of the nature of the issue.
Chester claimed the network covered the pandemic at such a detailed level because fear “really drives numbers” and “keeps you tuned in.”
And did we mention this was the SECOND video? The third undercover CNN video has not yet been released, but the first video was made public earlier this week.
In the first video, Chester said, “Look what we did, we 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.”
No bias here, right?
CNN was once the home of breaking news. Now it appears to be a marketing extension of the DNC. Biased beyond belief, you have to watch the videos to actually understand the influence of today’s liberal media.
The mainstream news is not your friend. They have an agenda, and it’s not to help you. It’s to control you. Whether hating on Trump or increasing the fear of the coronavirus, CNN and others like them simply want you to keep watching the network and lining their pockets.
It’s no longer about journalism. It’s about manipulation. Those on the inside support the left and are unafraid to say it. They’re also mining for dollars, using fear as the basis to increase viewership.
You don’t have to be a pawn for CNN and the left. Turn. It. Off. Think for yourself. Break the fear cycle that feeds the left’s narrative. You’ll be glad you did.
