This is the first day of recordings Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe released to the public of the CNN morning teleconferences he clandestinely recorded.
After O’Keefe spoke to CNN boss man Jeff Zucker on the morning conference call, CNN called the police on Project Veritas, suggesting that his actions could be a felony. O’Keefe responded in a tweet that it didn’t seem to be a problem when CNN aired a tape with First Lady, Melania Trump that had been secretly taped by her ‘friend’.
In the first recording to drop today, a CNN Field Producer named Stephanie Becker was discussing the Biden campaign’s presidential transition and how to convince viewers that the sooner it began the better. She said,
On the issue of why it’s important to get the transition going right, the 9-11 report talks about one of the problems was that the trouble that was brewing that lost during the transition. So, if you want a good, concrete example of what happens when you don’t have a good transition, well, look at the Twin Towers.
So using the tragedy of 9/11 to scare their viewers into complying with an early Biden transition into the White House was their goal.
In addition, they discussed downplaying the fact that Donald Trump did not concede the election and was not yet leaving the White House. Well of course he isn’t leaving yet. He is, after all, still the President of the United States.
Becker told Zucker that they should limit any focus on Trump, giving him very little air time, essentially disappearing him from his current role as President, despite the fact that he holds the title until at least January 20th, when either he or Joe Biden will be sworn in.
A second recording was released soon after the first, in which they discuss emphasizing what they called Trump’s erratic behavior.
CNN President Jeff Zucker said,
This is a president who knows he’s losing, who knows he’s in trouble, is sick, maybe is on the aftereffects of steroids or not. I don’t know. But he is acting erratically and desperately, and we need to not normalize that.
You know, this is what we’ve come to expect for the last three and a half years, four years, but it clearly is exacerbated by the time that we’re in and the issues that he’s [Trump] dealing with. I think that we cannot just let it be normalized. He is all over the place and acting erratically, and I think we need to lean into that.
CNN wanted to blatantly make the President look like he is off his rocker.
Part 3 of the recording series was the dropped. CNN VP of Global Programming, Marcus Mabry, could be heard chiding Fox News and evening host, Tucker Carlson of being racist and calling his show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, the “White Supremacy Hour”.
CNN’s VP of Global Programming Marcus Mabry:
Yeah, I was just going to say, if you’re going to talk about the story, I think it’s unavoidable that you have to talk about the naked racism of Tucker Carlson. Because that’s really what drove this anti-diversity push, you know, Trump watches Tucker Carlson’s show and then reacts. And just as sort of the white supremacy hour they have on Fox News every night, I think it’s the — You can’t disconnect the two.
James O’Keefe appeared on Hannity after releasing the recordings, where he spoke about how Project Veritas was able to get access to the CNN morning phone calls. He explained that they had been given access to the calls via an inside whistleblower and had been recording the calls for several months. O’Keefe plans to drop an “Advent Calendar” of recordings every day between now and Christmas.
O’Keefe also hopes he can get more insider whistle blowers from other big media enterprises to come forward. and “Be Brave”.
