Mark Moore, for the New York Post, reports that, “A CNN staffer boasts to Project Veritas that network peddled anti-Trump ‘propaganda.’”
“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, claims, ‘If it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,’ during a series of fake Tinder dates filmed by Project Veritas.”
“Tinder” is a social networking and online dating app.
Do we love Project Veritas, or what?!
This is too funny!
What a moron…, bragging to fake Tinder dates how influential CNN and he were!
‘“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.’”
Many of us were already aware of this, but for those who had any doubt, here it right from the horse’s mouth.
“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.”
So, he thinks that was propaganda.
Uh, yeah, Charlie, I think you’re correct there.
“Asked by the sleuth if he and CNN were concerned with Joe Biden’s health during the election, Chester said the network had that in mind.”
‘“Showing him jogging is obviously deflection of his age and they’re [CNN] trying to make it like, ‘Oh, I’m healthy,’ Chester said.”
“The date asked, ‘What do you mean?’”
“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN says the network was ‘creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about,’ in regards to former President Donald Trump’s health issues.”
‘“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 replied.”
“A source close to CNN said Project Veritas targeted Chester through the dating app Tinder because his profile mentioned he worked at CNN, according to Mediaite [a political website].”
“The Project Veritas employee, who was not identified and claimed to be a nurse, went on five dates wearing a wire, including the final one at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood.”
These people are better than the FBI!
“Chester told his ‘date’ he would be fine with it if Biden died, because he thought Vice President Kamala Harris is ‘f—ing real.’”
I’m sure Illegitimate Joe will be glad to hear that.
‘“I had so many arguments about, like — my dad would be like, “You’re, you know, you’re voting in Kamala Harris because he’s going to die in the presidency,” Chester told the woman. ‘And I’m like, He’s not going to f—ing die.’ But I’m OK with that. I’m OK with that. She probably could be a b—h in, like, a board meeting, and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f—ing real, and better than what we got regardless.’”
Wow…, how gender sensitive of you, Charlie.
Yup…, “woke” Charlie, that’s our boy!
“Chester was asked if CNN covered Biden tripping as he walked up the stairs.”
‘“You talk about that briefly. You don’t make that a huge story,’ he said.”
“CNN did not respond to requests for comment by The Post.”
Project Veritas is like the modern-day version of “Candid Camera,” only you’re not sympathetic for the person being caught on camera.
“During one of the meetings with his ‘date,’ Chester talked about how CNN also targeted anti-Trump voters by focusing on climate change, adding ‘fear sells.’”
Well, CNN must have been ecstatic about the pandemic!
‘“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.”
‘“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,’ he added.”
Thanks for the “heads up,” Charlie…, I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that.
“Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, says the network’s goal was ‘to be climate change awareness,’ following President Donald Trump’s election loss.”
‘“What’s that look like?’ Chester was asked.”
‘“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,’ Chester said.”
“Asked who makes that decision, he said the ‘head of the network,’ referring to Jeff Zucker.”
‘“I imagine that he’s got his council and they’ve all like, discussed, like where they think,’ he said, trailing off.”
“He then said the new focus would be on a ‘pandemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity.’”
‘“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 said.”
At the rate CNN is losing viewership, these days, CNN may not be around long enough to do much “milking.”
If anybody had any doubts about where CNN was coming from, I thinks those doubts have now all been laid to rest.
