CNN director admits to spreading propaganda

By: V4 Agency

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 a footage published by Project Veritas, Charlie Chester is seen speaking honsetly about how they managed to oust Donald Trump using propaganda tools.

“Look what we did. We [CNN] got Trump out. I am a hundred percent going to say it, and I a hundred percent believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know if Trump would have got voted out,” he said, adding that “I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”

Chester also talks about the network’s methods, admitting that they deliberately magnified Trump’s health issues.

“When Trump was, I don’t know, like his hand was shaking… or whatever I think, we brought in like so many medical people to like all tell a story that like, it was all speculation… that he was like neurologically damaged, that he was losing it. He’s unfit to, you know, whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about, you know. I think that’s propaganda,” Chester said.

In response to a question on whether the network was also paying attention to Biden’s health, CNN’s technical director said “we would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging,” in a bid to present him as healthy and to deflect people’s attention from his age.

Talking to a journalist, CNN’s director said that if Biden died, he would be okay with that, because VP Kamala Harris would also be doing fine.

When the journalist mentioned Biden tripping on multiple occasions on the steps of Air Force One, Chester said they did not “harp on Trump tripping. I think we talked about it a little bit.”

According to the technical director, CNN also targeted anti-Trump voters with a focus on climate change awareness, adding that “fear sells”.

“I think there’s just like a Covid fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN] going to latch on 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,” he said, adding that it’s going to be CNN’s next focus.

“So our next thing is going to be for climate change awareness,” Charlie Chester said.

“It’s going to be like constantly showing videos of like decline in ice and weather warming up and like the effects i’s having on the economy,” he said, envisioning the network’s methods to be used.

The footage recorded with a hidden camera also makes clear that it is up to the head of the network, Jeff Zucker, to decide what issues to concentrate on.

Earlier, Project Veritas managed to get hours of audio recordings on Zucker’s editorial briefings. The discussions reveal that CNN’s executive team agreed not to focus on leaked emails proving graft that Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden were implicated in.
