Undercover video footage of CNN’s employees released this week by Project Veritas shows a field production supervisor suggesting that the network’s endless conspiracy theories involving President Donald Trump won’t disappear until he dies.
“This is a story that’s not going to go away,” field production supervisor Gerald Sisnette says at the start of a short clip shared on Twitter this Thursday by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe.
“The Ukraine thing or just Trump in general?” one of Project Veritas’s undercover agents replies.
“Trump in general. The only way this will go away is when he dies. Hopefully soon,” Sisnette says as the clip concludes.

While the full context remains unclear, in part because O’Keefe has a tendency to present his findings in short snippets, it appears the Project Veritas agent and Sisnette had been discussing CNN’s current obsession with the Ukraine impeachment non-scandal.
Much like the network spent slightly over two years disseminating the Democrat Party’s since-debunked Russian collusion delusion conspiracy theories, it’s now obsessively pushing the party’s narrative that the president deserves to be impeached.
The network’s even launched a brand new “Impeachment Watch” newsletter that seems to be designed solely to convey the Democrat Party’s latest impeachment-related talking points to the masses.
We know it can be hard to keep up with the daily twists and turns around the impeachment inquiry.

Featured at the bottom of the newsletter is a little blurb that explains its purpose.
“What are we doing here?” it reads. “The President has invited foreign powers to interfere in the US presidential election. Democrats want to impeach him for it.”
“It is a crossroads for the American system of government as the President tries to change what’s acceptable for US politicians. This newsletter will focus on this consequential moment in US history.”
Nothing contained in that blurb is a fact, except for Democrats’ desire to impeach the president. It’s not a fact that “The President has invited foreign powers to interfere in the US presidential election” (here’s why), and it’s certainly not a fact that Trump is trying “to change what’s acceptable for US politicians.” These are blatant opinions.
Regarding Sisnette’s grotesque analysis of these opinions — namely, that CNN will keep opining negatively about Trump until the president dies — it does seem valid, especially when weighed alongside all the other information known about the far-left network.
For instance, other undercover footage released by Project Veritas this week shows a media coordinator based in Washington D.C. admitting that CNN Worldwide President Jeffrey Zucker boasts a “personal vendetta” against the president.

“Jeff Zucker, basically president of CNN, has a personal vendetta against Trump,” Neville, described by Project Veritas as a “CNN insider,” says in the clip above. “It’s not going to be positive for Trump. He [Zucker] hates him. He’s going to be negative.”
Reportedly until the president dies.
This vendetta is so deeply ingrained in the network’s dubious brand of “journalism” that even some of its own employees have admitted — while being filmed by Project Veritas’s undercover agents, granted — that the network is a biased purveyor of left-wing agitprop.
“Even though we’re totally left-leaning… we don’t want to admit it,” CNN field operator manager Patrick Davis says in one clip. “We could be so much better than what we are… we’re supposed to be middle of the road. Now it’s just infotainment is all it’s become. There is no true media news outlet.”
Here are some more notable quotes from Project Veritas’ investigation:
- CNN floor manager Mike Brevna: “It’s the Trump Network, dog. It’s like everything is all Trump … they not even thinking about anybody else. They sold themselves to the devil.”
- CNN media coordinator: “[C]onflict is what sells, nobody wants to hear one-minute canned statements. … Because conflict drives clicks … create clicks, get more money.”
- Zucker himself: “So, my point here is, I know there’s 7,000 impeachment stories that – Look, I am the one that’s saying we should just stay on impeachment, but when, you know, when a story of this magnitude comes up (referring to the story of alligators and snakes in a moat and shooting immigrants in the legs) and you can objectively say, you’re out of your mind. You should do it and say you’re out of your mind.”
The latter quote is particularly telling, as it shows that Zucker wants CNN’s “journalists” to express negative opinions about Trump whenever afforded the opportunity.
And as noted by Sisnette, this apparently won’t stop until Trump dies — or, perhaps, CNN simply goes out of business as its ratings keep sinking lower and lower.
