CNN Staffer: Our Obsessive Anti-Trump Coverage Won’t Stop Until Trump Dies

A new video released by Project Veritas Thursday shows CNN employees admitting on tape that the network peddles “a bunch of bullsh-t” and that it will not stop hammering the president “until he dies—hopefully soon.”

Part III of O’Keefe’s expose on CNN focuses on the network’s movement away from objective news-gathering towards partisan advocacy.

Once upon a time, CNN was respected as a serious, straight news outlet, but those days are long over, several CNN employees lamented on camera.

CNN insider Cary Poarch told O’Keefe, “I want to chase the facts, like the motto that CNN put out earlier this year, ‘the facts first,’ that’s what I want the news to be. That’s what it should be. That’s what it used to be.”

Multiple CNN staffers were secretly recorded voicing similar concerns.

CNN’s Manager of Field Operations Patrick Davis has been with the network for 25 years and has seen first-hand how its journalistic standards have slid.

“…I hate seeing what we were and what we could be and what we’ve become. It’s just awful…I mean, we could be so much better than what we are…And the buck stops with him (Zucker),” he said.

“I haven’t listened to a 9 AM call in about 15 years. I just stopped,” Davis complained. “Just, I can’t listen to it. It’s all bullsh-t. It’s all just a bunch of bullsh-t. And I wish that wasn’t the case.”

Scott Garber, Senior Field Engineer at CNN kvetched, “we used to cover news. We used to go out and do stories…But Trump is more important.”

Said Adia Jacobs, CNN Technical Operations Supervisor:“ When Zucker took over it wasn’t until Trump that we ended up being all Trump all the time.”

Nick Neville, CNN Media Coordinator complained, “he (Zucker) basically said f**k all the other stories.”

Said Mike Brevna, Floor Manager at CNN: It’s the Trump Network, dog. It’s like everything is all Trump…they not even thinking about anybody else. They sold themselves to the devil.”

CNN Media Coordinator Christian Sierra explained that the network’s desire for more “clicks” and “money” was behind a lot of its hyper-partisan reporting.

Gerald Sisnette, Field Production Supervisor at CNN suggested that “this story” (Trump’s presidency) would not go away until Trump dies. In other words, CNN won’t stop its obsessive anti-Trump coverage until the president is six feet under.

“This is a story that’s not gonna go away,” Sisnette said.

“Oh, the Ukraine thing, or Trump in general?” asked the undercover journalist.

“Trump in general,” Sisnette replied. “The only way this will go away is when he (Trump) dies. Hopefully soon.”

Steve Krakauer, a former Senior Digital Producer at CNN commented on Project Veritas’ CNN sting on Twitter:

“Lots to criticize CNN about, but Project Veritas has found basically nothing of interest,” he said. “Low-level staffers making off-hand comments is irrelevant, and if that’s all he has from the 9am calls, it shows a very well-run network saying things privately it essentially says publicly.”

But the point of these videos is to expose how extreme the bias at the network is (they won’t stop until the president is dead?!) and how their standards have severely declined in recent years.

Said O’Keefe:  “CNN has made a conscious decision to focus almost exclusively on the impeachment of President Trump at the expense of covering legitimate news around the world.”
