Interesting how what justified the total overhauling of a news organization yesterday is of no consequence today. What's the forecast for tomorrow? :)

I'm not sure I'd call O'Keefe a journalist but he's closer to it than anyone at CNN.

For sure CNN is pissed after being totally exposed for being a corrupt, partisan, propaganda organization.


Really? Because I recall that ethically challenged weasel making a doctored video in order to take down the civil rights organization, ACORN, then later admitting to bugging the phone of a prominent Louisiana elected leader after getting caught. I don't recall the real journalists at CNN ever railroading people with fraudulent evidence.

Only if you're hindered by right wing partisanship.

Hardly. The fact remains, your Veritas boy is an unethical weasel who destroyed a civil rights organization through a fraudulent, doctored tape. I like to think there's a special place in Hell for people like him.

No, my argument is against both the person and his position. What, pray tell, is there to defend about the weasel, other than that he has a history of "owning the libs."

I have heard many times before that his videos are "heavily and deceptively" edited. But, how does the media know that? It seems to be just a reactionary defense.

ACORN was not a benevolent civil rights organization. Just like Planned Parenthood is not a women's health organization.

ACORN was and Planned Parenthood is. ACORN helped black people in need, and Planned Parenthood does a whole lot more for women than just perform abortions. My wife in the past had received medical care from them in the past.

Yes, we do know that. The ACORN workers he had punked were first approached by the weasel while dressed respectably, asking for a business loan. After, he replaced footage showing himself dressed as a pimp, with a girl posing as a prostitute, looking to further their illegal business.
Reactionary? Are you serious? That weasel and his organization are the right wing reactionaries who destroyed a civil rights organization.

The guy's as dirty as hell. It has nothing to do with libs theoretically being closed minded, but with common sense dictating who is right.

A CNN staffer has been caught on camera admitting the network tried to undermine Trump during the 2020 election, calling his own employer a "propaganda" outlet.

Charlie Chester, a technical Director at CNN, was secretly filmed while on a series of fake Tinder dates with a woman who was an undercover journalist for right-wing group Project Veritas.

Mr Chester, who was filmed without his knowledge, said the network helped defeat Mr Trump.

"Look at what we did, we got Trump out,"Mr Chester said.

"I am 100% going to say it. And I 100% believe it that if it wasn't for CNN, I don't know that Trump would have got voted out."

Project Veritas released the full secret recordings on the group's YouTube account.

Conservatives have slammed CNN and claimed the tapes showed the network's endemic bias against Republicans.

CNN has not yet released a statement regarding the story, nor has the network confirmed if Mr Chester is still an employee.
