Project Veritas hit CNN hard by releasing another secretly filmed video, one of three sections of Project Veritas’ #ExposeCNN campaign, featuring network technical director Charles Chester admitting that the network was “trying to help” Black Lives Matter by preserving their racial narrative, FoxNews reports.
“I was trying to do some research on the Asian hate, like the people [who] are getting attacked and whatnot. A bunch of black men have been attacking Asians. I’m like, ‘What are you doing? Like, we [CNN] are trying to help BLM,’” said Chester during the video.
Chester continues by saying, “The optics of that are not good. These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements because the far left will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess.”
Since it would contradict the Black Lives Matter campaign, Chester predicted that “conservatives” would pounce if it was revealed that Black people were the perpetrators of hate crimes.
“You can shape an entire people’s perception about anything [depending] on how you do it,” Chester said.
Chester later claimed that the media was “propaganda,” a stance he maintained throughout the series of undercover recordings from the right-wing guerilla news organization.
Chester admitted in a video released by Project Veritas that CNN uses fearmongering about COVID to drive ratings.
“COVID? Gangbusters with ratings, right? Which is why we constantly have the death toll on the side, which I have a major problem with, how we’re tallying how many people die every day,” he said on secretly recorded video, noting that he strangely found himself cheering for the death toll to increase to support CNN’s story.
Project Veritas released an explosive video of Chester bragging that CNN assisted in the loss of former President Donald Trump and even calling his own employer “propaganda” earlier this week.
“Look at what we did. We got Trump out,” Chester expressed his joy in a celebratory tone. “I am 100 percent going to say it. And I 100 percent believe it that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out.”
