Project Veritas released a video on Tuesday, showing CNN technical director Charlie Chester admitting that his network has fabricated stories to “get Trump out of office” among other things.
“Look what we did. We got Trump out. I am 100% gonna say it and I 100% believe it, that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know if Trump would have got voted out,” Chester said in the video.
Charlie Chester admitted in the video that CNN pushed stories over former President Donald Trump’s health, even though they “didn’t know anything about” the former president’s health, and instead, would prop up Joe Biden health during the campaign to “paint him a young geriatric”.
“Our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was. So our next thing is gonna be for climate change awareness,” Chester said.
Asked if he thinks there is going to be “a lot of fear” pushed to their viewers over the subject of “climate”, Chester admitted, “Yeah. Fear sells. … No one ever says those things out loud, but it’s obvious”.
“I think there’s just like a COVID fatigue. So like whenever a new story comes up, there gonna latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is– will be open to it, we’re gonna start focusing mainly on climate,” he said. Continued Below
