(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – A brand new video from Project Veritas, part two of a series, shows a director for CNN, Charlie Chester, admitting that the network uses COVID as a means of fearmongering to help drive up ratings.
According to Gateway Pundit, Chester, a technical director, explains how CNN uses “manipulation” to help shape the public’s opinion. This is stuff conservatives have been saying right from the very beginning, but folks ignored it. Well, here you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth.
“Any reporter on CNN — what they’re actually doing is they’re telling the person what to say… It’s always like leading them in a direction before they even open their mouths. The only people that we [CNN] will let on the air, for the most part, are people that have a proven track record of taking the bait,” Chester went on to explain.
“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?” he continued.
Chester then went on to describe how they often want the COVID death tolls to be higher than they already are to help “make our point better.” This, ladies and gentlemen, should tell you how sickening and disgusting the mainstream media really is.
They are truly a propaganda machine designed to help push the liberal agenda, caring little for providing people with facts and truth. All that matters is pushing the narrative the progressives in power want to spread. Anything that leads them to having more power.
“Like, why isn’t it high enough, you know, today? Like it would make our point better if it was higher. And I’m like, what am I f***ing rallying for? That’s a problem that we’re doing that,” Chester stated.
The technical director also explained how CNN used the fear from the COVID pandemic to ensure people kept tuning into the network.
“It’s fear. Fear really drives numbers – [TV ratings],” he said. “Fear is the thing that keeps you tuned in.”
“COVID? Gangbusters with ratings, right? Which is why we [CNN] constantly have the [COVID] death toll on the side,” he explained.
Chester then went on to say that Jeff Zucker, the network’s president, would make calls to the CNN newsroom during live television segments and issue orders for the staff to keep COVID death tolls on the screen.
“The special red phone rings and this producer picks it up. You hear [murmurs] and every so often they put it on speaker and it’s the head of the network being like, ‘There’s nothing that you’re doing right now that makes me want to stick, put the [COVID death toll] numbers back up, because that’s the most enticing thing that we had. So, put it back up,” Chester said on the video.
The technical director then revealed that they sometimes throw in a “feel good” story because so much of their coverage is “doom and gloom.”
“No one ever says those things out loud, but it’s obvious based on the amount of stories that we [CNN] do. The fact that we have a segment called ‘The Good Stuff’, which is a feel-good thing, but it’s a dedicated moment at the end to almost be the ice cream to alleviate everything that you’ve been through. Something sweet to end it with because everything else is doom and gloom,” Chester said.
Folks, the mainstream media does not care about the facts. They are not educating you on the important issues of the day. They are pushing propaganda for progressives who want to usurp power and authority away from the people and consolidate it in the hands of an elite few in the government.
And this is the most effective means of making that happen. Terrifying the public so they willingly surrender their liberty out of a desire to be protected and made to feel safe. It’s diabolical to say the least.
