When our founding fathers were debating the Bill of Rights, they agreed that the new country should have a press free from government control.
A free press, they said, was vital to keeping local, state and federal governments in check with a fully informed populace.
In their wildest nightmares, none of them could ever have fathomed that an American news outlet would voluntarily become nothing more than “state media” — that is, a legitimate propaganda mouthpiece for a political party.
They could never have imagined CNN, in other words.
Thanks again to the intrepid undercover work of real journalists who work for Project Veritas, one of CNN’s media content directors was caught on video admitting that the network spread “propaganda” in order to help get former President Donald Trump defeated.
Project Veritas released a new video today exposing CNN Director Charlie Chester, who admitted that his network engaged in propaganda to benefit Biden’s candidacy during the 2020 election to the detriment of then-President Trump. Chester also said CNN has a pre-determined agenda when reporting on COVID-19 and climate change.
During a conversation with a Veritas journalist, Chester boasted about the impact the network had in determining the outcome of the presidential race last year.
“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100 percent going to say it, and I 100 percent 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 bragged.
This professional liar went on to note that his network also schemed to create the false impression that Trump was physically incapable of being president.
“[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,” Chester said.
“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,” he added.
That’s rich considering that by falsely portraying Trump as feeble, these lunatics helped get a truly feeble, dementia-stricken man elected, at a time when the world needed a strong U.S. leader because it’s a ticking time bomb.
“We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric,” said the CNN director said.
Since these heady days of lying about Biden’s health, the president has had difficulty remembering simple things like the names of people he has nominated to his Cabinet or even what he is doing at certain events and what he’s supposed to say.
He can’t climb the steps of Air Force One without tripping and coming close to breaking his neck. He can’t hold a conversation. He lets his vice president, Kamala Harris, talk to foreign leaders (definitely the president’s job). He doesn’t hold press conferences (remember that Trump held impromptu pressers all the time). He isn’t seen in public for days at a time. He didn’t even campaign much last year for all the same reasons, staying holed up in his basement and flubbing teleprompter responses.
All of which the garbage network called CNN and its state media propagandists hid from the American people.
And yet, the tech giants like YouTube, Google, Facebook and Twitter publish CNN freely and without restraint while censoring outlets like the New York Post, which was the first newspaper to report on Hunter Biden’s scandalous life.
If there was ever any better example of why Trump called the ‘mainstream media’ “enemies of the people,” we can’t think of one.
