President Trump has floated the possibility of filing a lawsuit against CNN for network president Jeff Zucker’s politically biased “campaign to destroy Trump.”
“Project Veritas-Obtained Undercover Videos Highlight Jeff Zucker’s (@CNN) Campaign To Destroy Trump. Videos Reveal @CNN’s BIAS!” @TuckerCarlson @FoxNews Does this sound like a good, or even great, lawsuit?

Judging by the initial undercover videos released on social media by Project Veritas that were made of former CNN employee Cary Poarch, it seems the case for mega-damages would be a slam dunk.

In several segments, a voice identified as Zucker’s is heard telling executives and employees to focus solely on impeachment, even to the exclusion of other important news stories.
“I don’t care about the MSNBC event, OK? I don’t care about them,” he said in one recording. “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.”
In another segment, he tells news staff to call out Sen. Lindsey Graham and not to be “friendly” with him, and he encourages them to attack Fox News.
Poarch says he was a satellite uplink technician at the network’s Washington Bureau for two years, but that his “dream job” turned into a nightmare due to the blatant fake-news anti-Trump bias by Zucker.
He decided to secretly record video from within the workplace that he believes verifies that the company and its top management are “obsessed” with getting the president impeached.
James O’Keeke, the founder of Project Veritas and a self-described “guerrilla journalist,” has released multiple extensive videos on their site that were filmed by Poarch exposing radical bias within CNN … involving not only President Trump but also racial bias that enters into story content decisions.
In one undercover video segment, CNN Media Coordinator Christian Sierra hypothesizes: “A white kid gets shot at Princeton University. He’s walking, he’s visiting his big brother who’s a student there, he gets shot in the head. He gets killed. We’re going to get coverage on that because, OH MY GOD, WE HAVE TO PUT THE PRECIOUS LITTLE WHITE BOY.”
Insider/whistleblower Poarch responds, “But three people get shot in Newark?”
Sierra insists, “NOBODY CARES. Nobody. Nobody cares. Maybe unless it happens on Cory Booker’s block!”

Nick Neville, another media coordinator was filmed saying: “What’s difficult is like we have some conflicting things at play here. Like, there’s a lot of people who are out here trying to like just do what they think is best of journalistic integrity and then you get on the 9am call and big boss Jeff Zucker f*****g tells you what to do. You have to follow his verdict.”
Neville also is heard saying: “Don Lemon comes on, he makes you think he’s objective news … I’m not trying to bash CNN … but he’s blatantly opinionated. So either disclose where you’re coming from, or get someone who is a little bit more objective. Don Lemon, I mean love him or hate him, he’s blatantly anti-Trump. He’s blatantly left. CNN makes it appear as though we have 24 hours of unbiased news. That’s not true.”
Poarch said he was on the verge of just quitting his job, but decided instead to do something to “protect the Republic,” and perhaps help return CNN to its former “greatness.”
“I was about to quit. I wrestled with the decision long and hard. It still scares me. This is exposing most likely the biggest media conglomerate in the world. But I decided to wear the camera. I didn’t see any other option.
“To do something to protect the Republic,” he continued. “Let the cards fall where they may. At least let us have one more fair and free election. I just hope that others in similar positions will take the mantle.”
Poarch hopes others in a position to make a difference take action also. “The Facebook insider inspired me, my goal from me, aside from getting CNN to return to its old greatness, is to inspire the people I’ve had the same conversation with.”
CNN has not responded to the damning exposé or to Trump’s lawsuit tweet.
