CNN's Brian Stelter Confronted Over Bombshell Videos Exposing Network's 'Propaganda'
Far-left CNN host grilled by Project Veritas reporter
CNN’s Brian Stelter was confronted by Project Veritas reporter over the recent bombshell series of undercover videos exposing the "propaganda" agenda at the far-left "news" network.
The explosive videos show a CNN director telling an undercover reporter that the network worked to get rid of President Donald Trump.
He also boasted that CNN creates “propaganda” and smears people who are a "problem for the Democratic Party."
Despite being the host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources” show, which "examines how journalists do their jobs and how the media affect the stories they cover," Brian Stelter didn’t seem too interested in speaking with a Project Veritas reporter about the recent exposé.
"I feel really bad for you," Stelter told the PV reporter while sporting a sweatshirt that read, “Journalism Matters. Now More Than Ever.”
“Do you report any news that [CNN President] Jeff Zucker doesn’t directly tell you to report?” the PV employee asked.
A journalist for Project Veritas asked Stelter if CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester still worked for CNN, to which Stelter replied by saying, “I feel really bad for you.”
The journalist asked Stelter if he uses “propaganda” or if he ever reports news outside of what CNN president Jeff Zucker allegedly tells him to report.
“I feel really bad for you,” Stelter said.
“Are you a journalist?” the reporter asked Stelter.
“Are you able to report anything that’s not directly handed down from…?”
“I report whatever I want,” Stelter said as he appeared to grow upset.
“You need to leave.”
Highlights from Project Veritas’ three-part release this last week include Chester saying the following about CNN allegedly working to remove Trump from 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…I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”
- “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 climate change awareness.”
Chester on CNN allegedly creating “propaganda” to damage Trump:
- “[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 on CNN’s plans to use “fear” to promote the network’s agenda on climate:
- “I think there’s a COVID fatigue. So, like whenever a new story comes up, they’re [CNN’s] going to latch onto it. They’ve already announced in our office that once the public is — will be open to it — we’re going to start focusing mainly on climate.”
- “I have a feeling that it’s going to be like, constantly showing videos of decline in ice, and weather warming up, and like the effects it’s having on the economy—”
- Climate change is the next “pandemic-like story that we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity. You know what I mean? Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN will] probably be able to milk that quite a bit.”
- “Be prepared, it’s coming. Climate change is going to be the next COVID thing for CNN.”
- When asked if CNN was going to use “fear” to push their agenda, Chester said, “Yeah. Fear sells.”
Chester on CNN reporters allegedly manipulating interview subjects into saying what the reporters want them to say:
- “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.”
- “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 on CNN trying to “help” Black Lives Matter and how the network covers crimes related to race:
- “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.’”
- “The optics of that are not good. These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements, because the far [right] will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess.”
- “Yeah I, for the longest while, the story was like, people were lapping up that it was like, you know, white guys for like so long. I don’t, I haven’t seen anything about focusing on the color of people’s skin that aren’t white. They just aren’t saying anything. You know what I mean? They’re just not, all of a sudden that story loses a little steam from it. They just like leave it be.”
