A CNN staffer can be seen in a newly released undercover video calling out his own network for “propaganda” and boasting that the cable news giant successfully removed former President Donald Trump from office.
“Look at what we did, we got Trump out,” Charles Chester, a network technical director at CNN, said to an undercover journalist from the political action group Project Veritas
in a tape released Tuesday. “I am 100% going to say it. And I 100% believe it that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out.”
Chester spoke to the undercover reporter in several clips in which he bragged that he was “one step down” from a director and admitted that the network pushed a story it “didn’t know anything about” relating to Trump’s physical health in order to damage him.
“Trump was, I don’t know, like, shaking his hand or whatever … We brought in, like, so many medical people to like all tell a story that, like, it was all speculation that he was, like, neurologically damaged, that he was losing it, he’s unfit to, you know, whatever,” Chester said. “We were creating a story that we didn’t know anything about.”
