Project Veritas released damning new video Tuesday showing a CNN director admitting that the fake news network engaged in “propaganda” to boost Joe Biden’s candidacy and denigrate President Trump during the 2020 election.
In the undercover footage, CNN Director Charlie Chester admitted that his network engaged in shameless propaganda to lie about President Trump’s health, temperament, and policies.
“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 told a PV journalist.
“[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,” he admitted.
Chester also confessed CNN deployed propaganda to portray ailing Biden as a vigorous “young geriatric.”
“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,” he said.
Chester went on to explain that, since Trump was successfully ousted from the White House, CNN would pivot to climate change messaging for the long-term, especially now that COVID-19 hysteria is waning.
“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 for climate change awareness,” 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.”
“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,” he added.
Veritas baited Chester to confess through several staged Tinder dates, according to Mediaite.
“A source close to CNN tells Mediaite that Chester was targeted by Project Veritas via the dating app Tinder, in which his dating profile included CNN. The unidentified Project Veritas employee claimed to by [sic] a nurse and the two initially bonded over Chester’s past health concerns. They went on a total of five dates, the last of which occurred at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood, but was interrupted by O’Keefe and others before leaving the coffee shop.”
