James O’Keefe and Project Veritas (PV) have exposed some rather disturbing happenings in this country.
PV has videos up on voter fraud, political corruption and now, PV has exposed something that should both interest and worry every American in this country.
O’Keefe managed to get a CNN employee to go undercover to expose the blatant bias by CNN’s top executives, including company president Jeff Zucker, in their concentrated effort to take Trump down.
The Downfall of CNN
There was a time, believe it or not, when CNN was almost a fair news outlet.
It has always had a bit of a left slant, but the news that came across was, for the most part, straight news.
That, of course, has changed rather dramatically over the last decade and significantly so since Donald Trump became president.
Now, the network is Donald Trump all the time, regardless of whatever else is happening in the world.
Remember the Stormy Daniels controversy? Her attorney at the time, Michael Avenatti, reportedly appeared on CNN 65 times between March 7 and May 10, 2018. He appeared 20 times with Anderson Cooper alone!
There were some major stories during this time, but you would have never known it from watching CNN because the ONLY story CNN was covering was Donald Trump.
If you were scratching your head during this time, you were not alone, but the PV undercover video makes it very clear why this was happening.
The focus of the network is dictated by network president Jeff Zucker, who has literally told his staff to ignore everything else and concentrate on Trump’s impeachment.
During a morning phone call, when a gun rally was taking place with multiple presidential candidates attending, Zucker stated, “I don’t care about the MSNBC event, OK? I don’t care about them. Let’s just stay very focused on impeachment.
“We shouldn’t just pretend, oh, this is going one way. And, so, all of these moves are toward impeachment.”
This attitude, believe it or not, is not well received from everyone at CNN. During the PV video, several employees express their displeasure over the mandated direction of the network (the video is almost 20 minutes, but I highly encourage you to watch the entire video)…
Mission Vs News Reporting
To be clear, there is nothing wrong with any network reporting on the impeachment story because it is, after all, a news story.
However, interjecting commentary to dictate a narrative and having on-air anchors openly celebrate is more than a bit over the top.
The entire CNN network has become an opinion show and is no longer a serious media outlet, but that seems to be the direction as to where the media is headed right now.
Look at what ABC News did with the bogus video on Turkey attacking Kurdish citizens. The story was created to paint a negative picture on Trump’s Syrian strategy and nobody even fact-checked the source to ensure the video they were blasting out and devoting major TV time to was actually legitimate.
Hopefully, this CNN insider video wakes people up because EVERY American needs to realize networks like CNN are manipulating them and the news to suit what appears to be a personal vendetta by CNN executives, specifically Jeff Zucker, against the sitting president of the United States.
