INSIDE SCOOP: CNN Director Admits Pumping COVID Fear to Drive Ratings


Those of us with critical thinking skills already knew this.

But it’s nice to see someone from Fake News CNN finally admit it.

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had the exclusive scoop that exposed CNN for the fearmongers they are.

Their wicked newsroom preyed upon fear of a new virus to pump their ratings and terrify their audience.

And CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester spilled the beans.

Check it out:

These people are pure evil.

And that’s no hyperbole.

Wishing the death toll to be higher.

Pumping nonstop fear to people so they keep tuning in.

They should be ashamed of themselves.

But they have no shame.

Fake News CNN will gleefully keep peddling fear as long as their audience remains glued to their television sets.

Who else agrees that this should be regarded as a criminal act?

Because Fake News CNN doesn’t qualify as news.

It’s downright propaganda to frighten people from living their normal lives.

The New York Post reported:

The CNN staffer who was secretly recorded admitting the network used “propaganda” to help get Joe Biden elected president also said they played up the COVID-19 death toll for ratings — and that the order came down directly from top brass.

Charlie Chester, a technical Director at the cable network, was filmed by Project Veritas during a series of fake Tinder dates as he explained how “Fear really drives numbers.”

“COVID? Gangbusters with ratings,” Chester told the unidentified PV staffer.

“Which is why we constantly have the death toll on the side,” he continued, making reference to the coronavirus death tracker that would appear on the screen. “It would make our point better if [the COVID death toll] was higher.”

The Project Veritas employee, who was not identified and claimed to be a nurse, went on five dates with the CNN staffer, including the final one at a coffee shop in Chester’s neighborhood. It’s unclear when the dates took place.

On one of the meet-ups, Chester explained to the PV employee why the network went so heavy on COVID coverage, saying, “Fear is the thing that really keeps you tuned in.”

Going on to reference the death toll, Chester then said he had “a major problem with how we’re tallying how many people die every day, because I’ve even looked at it and been like, look at it and be like, ‘Let’s make it higher.’ Like, why isn’t high enough, you know, today?”

How hilarious that a series of fake Tinder dates busted these band of criminals.
