After yesterday’s bombshell video showing a CNN producer saying that CNN’s Russia coverage was driven by a search for ratings, James O’Keefe and Project Veritas are back with another video. This time it shows Van Jones, a professional leftist and former Obama administration official, calling the “Russia thing” a “big nothingburger.”
Project Veritas started its video with a clip of Jones saying the story was different because America was “under attack” by Russia. This undercover video seemingly proves the notion that what CNN personalities say on the air is agenda and narrative-driven, a point that CNN’s Brian Stelter tried vigorously to deny in his daily email. Stelter called those who allege that the media pushes a narrative, not facts, “anti-journalism.”
Stelter vigorously defended his compatriots, saying that his network doesn’t push an agenda or propaganda but rather deals in facts. In addition to what Van Jones says above, The Daily Wire showed earlier on Wednesday how CNN used Elmo – yes, the lovable red monster from Sesame Street – to attack Donald Trump. In the video, Elmo, in a CNN Facebook live posted to CNN’s YouTube channel, talks about meeting poor refugee children. That’s not reporting; that’s agenda driven propaganda.
Showing that the media is presenting biased coverage is important so that Americans can choose whom and what to trust. CNN should be learning that lesson.
