CNN director admits to spreading propaganda

Project Veritas, the American investigative portal, has published another undercover video, which shows CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester speak about the network using speculative propaganda to attack former US President Donald Trump.

In the second instalment of the series, Chester talks about how “fear really drives numbers”.

“Covid? Gangbusters with ratings. Which is why we constantly have the [Covid] death toll on the side […] Like it would make our point better if it was higher,” he said.

Referring to death count on screen, the director said he had a major problem with how “we’re tallying how many people die every day, because I’ve even looked at it and been like, look at it and be like, ‘Let’s make it higher.’ Like, why isn’t it high enough, you know, today?”

Chester claimed there was a “red phone” that CNN president Jeff Zucker would use to call the control room to order producers to play up the Covid death count on screen.

“Like, this special red phone rings and they pick it up and […] it’s like the head of the networkbeing like, ‘There’s nothing that you’re doing right now that makes me want to stick. Put the numbers back up. Because that’s the most enticing thing that we have.’ So, things like that are constantly talked about,” Chester explained.

There is “no such thing as unbiased news,” the director said.

“Any reporter on CNN, what they’re actually doing is they’re telling the person what to say. It’s always like leading them in a direction before they even open their mouths,” he said. “And the only people we let on air, for the most part, are people that have a proven track record of taking the bait,” he added.
