The latest video from Project Veritas purports to show a CNN staffer admitting the network pushed anti-Trump “propaganda” before bragging it was intended to "get Trump out of office."
“Look what we did, we [CNN] 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, CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester says in the video. “I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”
Veritas allegedly tracked down Chester through the dating app, Tinder, where he listed CNN as his employer. Over a series of dates, Chester brags to his off-camera date about working for the network and their propaganda efforts.
The video shows Chester discussing CNN smear efforts on Trump’s health and other issues.
“[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to tell a story that was all speculation -- that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He's unfit to -- you know, whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn't know anything about. That's what -- I think that’s propaganda,” Chester says.
In the video, Chester lays out how CNN spread plenty of misinformation during the election. He also lets us know there is more to come.
“It's going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that's what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be for climate change awareness.”
