James O'Keefe and Project Veritas Expose How Far CNN Went to Defeat Donald Trump

At this point, any revelation that CNN is run by and populated with absolute left-wing hacks is more of a dog-bites-man story, but it’s newsworthy nonetheless.

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas dropped a new set of undercover videos showing just how far CNN went to try to oust Donald Trump out of office. Those in the video were also more than keen to take credit for putting Joe Biden in the White House.

CNN is not a journalistic organization. That may not be breaking news, but it’s worthy of repetition given their insistence on presenting themselves as such. As you can see in the clip above, there are CNN employees who admit to taking stories about nothing (i.e. Trump’s hand shaking while he drinks water) and turning it into a multi-day news cycle to shill for Biden. It’s also stated that the directive for such coverage came from the top, i.e. Jeff Zucker.

While CNN would trash Trump over every little thing, they shaped other coverage to make Biden look cool, and even more laughably, young and capable. You may remember Brian Stelter squeeing over Biden riding a bike as if he had just witnessed an Olympic-sized feat. But any questioning of Biden’s obviously deteriorating mental state was brushed aside as conspiratorial by the same network that would bring on “doctors” to diagnose Trump of infirmities live on air.

Democrats may lose their minds over mythical “foreign” interference in our elections via Russian Facebook memes, but no one interfered more in 2020 than news outlets pushing nonsense and censoring legitimate stories (such as the Hunter Biden laptop saga). CNN was chief among the guilty.

Lastly, according to the Project Veritas video, CNN also has a new topic they are going to push once COVID subsides. Climate change will apparently dominate their coverage, which isn’t surprising either. When a network is clearly just a political activism outlet, you expect them to push left-wing narratives, and that’s exactly what CNN does on a daily basis.

But look, we all know there’s no actual reformation of the media coming. Rather, the only thing to do now is to finish off what little credibility these “news” outlets may have left, and they do a good job of that themselves just via their garbage reporting. Alternative sources of media, including sites like RedState, are the wave of the future. People don’t want to be lied to by people who hide behind a facade of impartiality. They’d rather get the truth from people who are honest about their political leanings.
