On Tuesday, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe crashed a CNN conference call with CNN president Jeff Zucker, telling him that he has months of recordings of CNN’s daily calls.
O’Keefe filmed himself crashing Zucker’s call on Periscope which was uploaded on his social media accounts.
“Hey Jeff Zucker, are you there?” O’Keefe said in the video. “Hey, this is James O’Keefe. We’ve been listening to your CNN calls for basically two months, recording everything. Just wanted to ask you some questions if you have a minute. Do you still feel you’re the most trusted name in news, because I have to say from what I’ve been hearing on these phone calls, I don’t know about that and we got a lot of recordings that indicate that you’re not really that independent of a journalist.”
Zucker replied, “OK, thank you for your comments.”
“So everybody, in light of that I think what we’ll do is we’ll set up a new system and we’ll be back with you,” Zucker said. “We’ll do the rest of the call a little bit later.”
O’Keefe then notified Zucker that he would be releasing all of his recordings later today.
“It’s important that we hold accountable the mainstream media,” O’Keefe said. “The media has to be held to account. They are hurting the American people with their lies, their innuendo, their slander, the defamation, the hyperbole and I think Mr. Zucker is shaking in his boots right now. I think he’s very afraid of what might be coming.”
This isn’t the first time that O’Keefe has gone undercover on CNN. Check out what the Daily Wire reported last October:
A contractor working at CNN came forward on Monday and released videos that they recorded of CNN President Jeff Zucker appearing to admit that the network is pushing the agenda of the Democrat Party by making all their news coverage about “moves towards impeachment” and telling CNN employees that the only coverage he wants is “impeachment.”
The contractor, Cary Poarch, released the videos through James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, which has a history of releasing damaging video content of left-wing figures and organizations admitting a wide range of things that often conflict with what they say publicly.
“I decided to wear a hidden camera … to expose the bias running rampant,” Poarch said.
Poarch recorded CNN company meetings where Zucker appears to admit that CNN is essentially pushing the agenda of the Democrat Party by giving non-stop coverage to impeachment and by stating that all news coverage is about “moving toward impeachment.”
“I want to stay with this, our top, top — our own reporters, our own political analysts, the top, the top [unintelligible] we have,” Zucker says. “All these moves are moves towards impeachment.”
“Let’s just stay very focused on impeachment,” Zucker adds. “We’re moving towards impeachment … all these moves are moves towards impeachment.”
Zucker tells employees to “knock off” their friendliness toward South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham.
