In yet another Project Veritas hidden camera video that exposes rampant liberal bias in the corporate media, a CNN technical director appears to claim that the network’s intent was to “get Trump out of office.”
The so-called most trusted name in news also allegedly sought to portray Joe Biden as a “young geriatric” to offset concerns about his health. CNN has not yet commented on the new Project Veritas undercover video.
It should be noted that the footage released by James O’Keefe and his muckraking crew contains heavily edited snippets of what presumably is a longer conversation (or series of conversations) that took place in a noisy restaurant and may not capture the full context. O’Keefe has indicated that part 2 is coming, so stay tuned.
Project Veritas allegedly found the man, identified as Charlie Chester, via the Tinder dating app, where his profile listed his employment. According to Mediaite, Chester and the undercover Project Veritas journalist went on five dates.
Also, it’s not entirely clear the degree of influence, if any, over content that a technical director has in the CNN food chain.
In the video, however, the technical director seems rather boastful about CNN’s alleged effect on the electorate.
“We got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it, and I 100% believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out…our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was,” he aid.
Chester also claimed that “I think we got [Biden] through this term.”
The director also implied that CNN wildly exaggerated a narrative about Trump’s hands shaking in one instance as a form of propaganda that raised doubts about the incumbent president’s health. “We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about.”
The discussion also got to the possibility that CNN is now going to push climate change as the new COVID. “Fear sells,” the man claimed.
Watch the video embedded below and draw your own conclusions:
In an appearance with Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel that highlighted this new video, James O’Keefe acknowledged that this kind of revelation “doesn’t shock your audience, but it is amazing the man was caught on tape. He’s not just an unwitting whistleblower. He’s participating in what he knows is wrong. He says it’s propaganda…”
“The implications are staggering because Google and Twitter prefer CNN in their algorithms, and CNN considers themselves the most trusted name in news, but here are they are admitting that they’re trying to help certain political candidates, and they’re trying to hide that,” the Project Veritas founder added.
O’Keefe noted that his defamation lawsuit against CNN in connection with a separate issue has survived a motion to dismiss and is going forward. “I think a lot of people need to start suing the media for defamation. It’s disgraceful what they’re doing; it’s disgusting.”

In another video, Chester appeared to claim that CNN is running with negative coverage of U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) “because he’s a problem for the Democratic Party…so it would great for the Democratic Party to get him out. So we’re going to keep running those stories to keep hurting him…”
The Project Veritas video prompted Donald Trump Jr. to assert that “A @CNN director is caught on video admitting that the focus of CNN’s news coverage in 2020 was ‘to get Trump out of office’ & that they engaged in ‘propaganda’ to make it happen. CNN isn’t a news organization, they’re a Democrat Super PAC!!!”
