James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released the first part of their new #ExposeCNN project. If you have been paying attention to CNN for the last few years, you may not be surprised by what is revealed in their report.

The insider is Cary Poarch, who worked at CNN’s Washington, DC bureau. His recordings suggest that CNN is on a mission to end Trump’s presidency.

Network President Jeff Zucker is heard holding a daily editorial phone call with employees, during which he makes it clear that CNN is pushing the impeachment narrative. Other CNN employees claim that Zucker hates Trump, and has harbored a personal vendetta against him since they were both at NBC during the days of “The Apprentice.”

PART 1: CNN Insider Blows Whistle on Network President Jeff Zucker’s Personal Vendetta Against POTUS

A brave CNN insider came to Project Veritas to expose anti-Trump bias at the cable giant. Cary Poarch, who works at CNN’s Washington D.C. Bureau, tells Project Veritas “I decided to wear a hidden camera…to expose the bias running rampant” at the network. Poarch documented CNN’s bias for months; recording undercover footage of numerous long-term employees, some of which talk about Jeff Zucker’s anti-Trump agenda.

In the video are Nick Neville, Christian Sierra, Hiram Gonzalez, David Chalian, and Mike Brevna. These employee’s positions range from media coordinator to high-ranking executives. I decided to secretly record the 9:00am rundown call meetings with senior management and executives, says Poarch. In the recordings, Zucker details his expectations for CNN’s coverage and very matter-of-factly states “impeachment is the story.”

One fascinating aspect of the report is that it reinforces the obvious contempt CNN has for FOX News. If you’ve ever watched CNN’s media reporter Brian Stelter, you know that he talks about FOX News almost obsessively. That makes perfect sense when you hear the way his boss speaks about the rival network. More from Veritas:

In one 9AM rundown call, Zucker and another executive disparage Republicans about Trump and attack FoxNews:

“I think what’s going on in America now is really fundamentally result of years of fake news, conspiracy nonsense from Fox News that has taken root in this country…”

Zucker continues, “The fake conspiracy nonsense that Fox has spread for years is now deeply embedded in American society and at the highest levels of the Republican elected officials as we’ve seen…and frankly that is beyond destructive for America…”

The report also claims what any reasonable person could assume about CNN’s top hosts such as Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, and Chris Cuomo. They all hate Trump:

The entire first video is posted below. It’s about 20 minutes long, and worth watching in full:

CNN’s response to this has been fairly mute so far. The Wrap has a statement from a network spokesman:

CNN Says No One in Project Veritas’s #ExposeCNN ‘Sting’ Is a CNN Journalist

CNN says none of the people included in a Project Veritas video that purports to expose left-wing bias at CNN are actually CNN journalists…

Project Veritas’s #ExposeCNN operation relied on video footage taken by Cary Poarch, who said he was a “CNN insider” at the network’s D.C. bureau. But according to a CNN spokesperson, Poarch wasn’t a CNN employee and was instead a freelance satellite truck operator whose company had been contracted by the network. Poarch had given notice prior to the release of the tapes, the spokesperson said…

The CNN spokesperson said that Neville was only a junior employee at the network, not a journalist, and would not have had access to Zucker or knowledge of the topics in which he was speaking about. Neville did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

We will be covering more of this story as Project Veritas rolls out additional reports.
