CNN ‘fesses up: Reporting promotes Black Lives Matter movement

‘You can shape an entire people’s perception’

CNN, through an executive caught on a hidden camera, is confessing that the network will ignore stories and evidence that don’t promote the Black Lives Matter movement and its narrative.

It is in the third video released by Project Veritas of CNN’s technical director, Charlie Chester, that the confession was made.

Chester explained he was researching anti-Asian hate crimes and “found that black-on-Asian crime was high,” Project Veritas explained.

But he refrained from digging into the topic because it would not help Black Lives Matter.

“I was trying to do some research on the Asian hate, like the people [who] are getting attacked and whatnot. A bunch of black men have been attacking Asians. I’m like ‘What are you doing? Like, we [CNN] are trying to help BLM,’” he said.

“The optics of that are not good. These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements, because the far left will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess,” he explained.

Chester told an undercover Project Veritas journalist that CNN declines to report on racial issues unless it directly implicates white people.

“I haven’t seen anything about focusing on the color of people’s skin that aren’t white. They [CNN] just aren’t saying anything. You know what I mean?” he said.

He also suggested the intent of the editorializing in the network’s reporting: “You can shape an entire people’s perception about anything [depending] on how you do it.”

In the second video released by Project Veritas, Chester explained how CNN reporters coach interview subjects so their comments align with the network’s political agenda.

“I think there’s an art to manipulation. … Inflection, saying things twice — there’s little subtleties to how to manipulate people. …I mean, it’s enough to change the world, you know?”

Chester also boasted the network used “propaganda” to get President Trump voted out of office.

“Look what we did, [CNN] got Trump out,” Chester said. “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 … I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”

Chester said CNN brought in “medical people to tell a story that was all speculation” about Trump’s health, “that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it.”

Chester said: “Wewere creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what – I think that’s propaganda.”

This was an exposé; cowardly CNN did not ‘fess up’.

Much needed… thank God for James O’Keefe/Project Veritas… But CNN would never admit propagating Marxist-Leninist BLM lies under the guise of ‘media’ or ‘journalism’.

Words matter.


Slam dunk proof that big media fraudulently manage “the narrative.” Of course leftists will insist it’s just a “conspiracy theory,” even in the face of Overwhelming evidence.
