Project Veritas released a video showing CNN director Charlie Chester admitting that the focus of CNN’s news coverage in 2020 was “to get Trump out of office” and that they engaged in “propaganda” to help make it happen.
Chester admitted that they made up their story about Trump being unhealthy, while at the same time making it seem as if Biden was healthy.
“[Trump’s] hand was shaking… 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… We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about…I think that’s propaganda.”
“We would always show shots of him (Biden) jogging and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him (Biden) as a young geriatric.”

Chester also says that without CNN Trump wouldn’t have lost. He continues that, after the hype surrounding Covid starts to die down, CNN’s next agenda will be to push climate fear.
During a podcast interview with Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin in August 2020, the “CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon said “I don’t really understand how people will say CNN is biased and focuses on the negative of Trump.”
Prior to Charlie Chester’s LinkedIn being deleted, Project Veritas posted an image of his profile on Instagram.
