A new video published by the investigative group Project Veritas shows a CNN director admitting the network executed a “propaganda” operation to oust President Donald Trump.
“We got Trump out,” CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester is shown celebrating on hidden camera. “I am a hundred percent going to say it, and I a hundred percent believe it that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out.”
Chester was clear, however, in the tape published by Project Veritas, that the news network pursued its primary goal “without saying it” publicly.
“No one says those things out loud, but it’s obvious,” Chester said.
On hidden camera, Chester discusses how the network brought in medical experts to make up a story about Trump’s cognitive capabilities after the president’s hand was seen shaking.
“It was all speculation,” Chester said. “We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about.”
CNN, which hosted hours-long townhalls with the Democrat presidential candidates during the primaries, will now pivot to becoming the Climate News Network, he said.
“Our next thing is going to be climate change awareness,” Chester said, appearing to pledge continued activism over journalism. “Fear sells.”
Project Veritas, a top target among the ruling class for its exposé reporting on a litany of issues from ballot box integrity to tech censorship, most recently published information from a top executive at Facebook last month warning of the Silicon giant’s power.

It's too much power…It needs to be broken up the way telecom companies were broken up." https://t.co/Ymr4IseNRz pic.twitter.com/w4DlGYrT6B

“The government needs to step in and break up Google and Facebook. I’ll make less money but it’s a better thing for the world,” Facebook’s Global Planning Lead Benny Thomas said. The company’s platforms, ranging from Instagram to Oculus and WhatsApp, have accumulated “too much power when they’re all one together.”
