O’Keefe: Why was it so ‘obvious’ to CNN chief that Hunter Biden story not be covered?

James O’Keefe and the Project Veritas crew have released more audiotape of purported daily editorial teleconferences chaired by CNN boss Jeff Zucker during which he more or less gives his immediate staff of the network, the laughable slogan of the most trusted name in news, their anti-Trump marching orders.

In the latest drop, which O’Keefe discussed with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night (and there is much more coming according to the Project Veritas founder), Zucker claims the president is a national security threat for raising serious questions about the 2020 election results and dismisses the Hunter Biden Burisma/laptop scandal.

“Obviously, we’re not going with the New York Post story right now on Hunter Biden,” a complaint Zucker lieutenant purportedly indicates, when another CNN exec chimed in on the call with a weird accusation that Miami Cubans voted for Trump because they are “attracted to bullies.”

As he alluded to above, O’Keefe appeared on FNC’s Hannity to comment on his latest tape trove. Sean Hannity began the segment by claiming that Zucker was “instructing his staff to not cover news that’s bad for Joe Biden and Democrats, and essentially be…an extension and arm of the Democratic Socialist Party.”

O’Keefe seemed to agree:

“Well, hearing the vice president of CNN say, ‘obviously, we shouldn’t cover the New York Post story, we shouldn’t cover that story,’ what’s so obvious about it? Why is it obvious that we shouldn’t report on something that’s newsworthy related to the son of the vice president?” he wondered.

O’Keefe then went on to address the voter-fraud issue, which apparently no CNN reporter has actually looked into. He also disregarded Zucker’s legal saber-rattling, in part because it’s just more projection.

“Hearing Zucker say that you’re a national security threat if you look into evidence of voter fraud, we did that in Minnesota and Texas, by the way. We caught cash exchange for ballots. We caught people talking about buying elections. You’re a national security threat if you investigate. And investigative reporters are supposed to investigate and find evidence. But this isn’t journalism. This isn’t any journalism I know,” O’Keefe insisted

“For the president of a news conglomerate to be ordering, ordering his troops, ordering his reporters to not look into facts, and the fact that Zucker would call the police to threaten me with arrest for quoting him — I think maybe Zucker may have met his match because maybe we’re the only reporters who aren’t ‘yes men’ to him like his troops on these phone calls at CNN.”

O’Keefe was alluding to the CNN accusation that the Project Veritas eavesdropping might be a felony. Both he and Hannity recalled that the corporate media had no such concerns about the leaks of secretly recorded Melania Trump’s private conversations.

According to O’Keefe, it may be less than a happy holiday for Zucker because, in response to allegations of selective editing, Project Veritas plans to release the raw, unedited staff meeting tapes of 50-plus CNN calls “And they’ll wish we had edited the tapes” that shows how CNN “manufactures consent.”
