#ExposeCNN Part 1 – CNN President Zucker Has Vendetta Against Trump, is Pushing Impeachment

“nothing we can do if Zucker wants impeachment every single day to be the top story”

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.”

Here’s more, via Project Veritas:

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.

Wow. A whistleblower who has a name and a face, produces first-hand evidence that he witnessed personally and speaks publicly instead of behind closed doors. No Ratheresque “fake but accurate” nor Bidenesque “truth before facts” here. It’s about the facts proving what has been plainly obvious to anyone with a brain for years.

Huh. Tell me something about CNN that I don’t know.

“A CNN Journalist”…isn’t that a contradiction in terms?

The criticism, though deserved, is masking what Zucker the businessman is really doing. The CNN audience is rabidly anti-Trump and tunes into “the most trusted name in news” to be able to fantasize about the demise of Trump and 24-7 Mueller or 24-7 impeachment brings the TDS crowd to CNN

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.

Sounds like they really got caught with their pants down. No time to come up with a competent excuse, so they’ll bleat irrelevancies for a while. The recordings mean that “journalist”, “access to Zucker” and “knowledge of the topics” are utterly irrelevant. No spin needed when the evidence is plain.

    “No spin needed when the evidence is plain.”

    The spin is still needed but it takes time for them to “align” the evidence to the narrative. Video is damn difficult to lie about but lies are CNN currency.

    They don’t know what else is coming. So they cannot put out their usual pack of lies.

    Valerie in reply to tom_swift. | October 15, 2019 at 10:55 am

    They spin because they know that some people will never see the Project Veritas video, and will therefore believe their lies about it.

    Nancy Pelosi called it a “wrap-up smear.” Adam Schiff is using that same technique with his fraudulent impeachment witnesses. They testify in private, he lies about the testimony, the Republicans point out the lies, and then the Fake News spikes the Republicans’ responses.

Who you gonna believe, me or your lying eyes?

As much as I admire O’Keefe, this is something we already knew. If he had a WB inside the rest of the msm he would find the same thing. This is like saying, “Today a Demorat lied on national TV”.

    I heartily disagree. You might have an opinion about the poor quality reporting and ridiculous statements, which is fine for you. This is distinct. This is proof. It’s the difference between hypothesis and on-point data.

      Have you seen the latest from ABC? They were caught in a big lie about the firefight in the Turkey/Syria border region. They were exposed and didn’t even offer a correction only a half haearted “Oops”. The NYT prints lies almost daily to some degree or another. Msnbc is a hotbed of ridiculous conspiracies and all of this has to be done at the editor level. No reporter has the authority to go on air or to print their findings without editorial approval. So what would the cameras/tapes in all of the agencies find that would differ from what we already know? We actually have the tape of the editor of the NYT saying that since the Russian hoax failed that they must noe refocus on going after Trump.

    It’s certainly not shocking, but i suppose there is value in having it documented

    Geologist in reply to inspectorudy. | October 15, 2019 at 3:31 pm

    We all know that CNN is terribly slanted in its presentations of “the news.” So bfd, it is now documented. There is no “there” there. Is it illegal? Is it going to cause one CNN watcher to change channels? Is it going to undermine CNN in any way?

    CNN is pandering to its audience. Just as any “for profit” business does.

    What a waste of energy to get excited by this. O’Keefe missed the mark here.

      With their bias exposed, can they be called News any longer?

      Why not change it from CNN to CON – the Cable Opinion Network. Maybe tack Spin to the end of it and call ’em CONS.

      LookoutABear in reply to Geologist. | October 15, 2019 at 5:01 pm

      If there is anyone who honestly still believes CNN is objective, this may finally give them evidence to the contrary.

      However, looking at MSM ratings slide, I think most of those people have already reached that conclusion on their own

I’ve yet to see O’Keefe legitimately discredited.

The only thing I see are uppity journalists getting mad that he exposed them by sending people in on sting operations.

They caught him on one going after WaPo, which doesn’t really prove that he was lying about anything (or that WaPo wouldn’t have published it if they hadn’t successfully doxxed the person).

That’s the most I’ve seen. Other than that, they just try to shame his tactics. If they weren’t so worried about what his tactics might reveal, then they wouldn’t scream so loudly, either.

I see random claims of “heavily edited” video but no proof yet that he actually changed someone’s words. Context is always useful, and that’s why it’s good when investigators like this release unedited versions, too (like with the PP scandals). However, I think some burden of proof on context reverts back to the caught party in the court of public opinion.

I have one complaint. I wish they’d also publish a plain transcript for those of us who have limited tolerance for sitting through YouTube videos.
