CNN Director Charlie Chester Says Network Is ‘Trying To Help’ The Black Lives Matter Movement By Protecting The Group’s Narrative On Race … ‘I Haven't Seen Anything About Focusing On The Color Of People's Skin That Aren't White’
[NEW YORK – Apr. 15, 2021] Project Veritas released its third installment of the #ExposeCNN series today, which features CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester opening up about the network’s unwillingness to cover racial issues in an objective manner.
Chester said he attempted to learn about Asian hate crimes and found that Black-on-Asian crime was high, but decided to refrain from delving deeper into the topic because it does not help Black Lives Matters’ narrative.
“I was trying to do some research on the Asian hate, like the people [who] are getting attacked and whatnot. A bunch of black men have been attacking Asians. I’m like ‘What are you doing? Like, we [CNN] are trying to help BLM,’” he said.
Chester continued, “The optics of that are not good. These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements, because the far left will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess.”
Chester admitted to a Veritas journalist that CNN refuses to report on racial issues, unless it directly implicates white people.
“I haven't seen anything about focusing on the color of people's skin that aren't white. They [CNN] just aren't saying anything. You know what I mean?”
CNN has been covering the Black Lives Matter riots taking place in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota consistently during the last three days. Chester’s revelations bring into question whether or not the network is impartial on the issue of race.
The technical director also corroborated what he said in earlier #ExposeCNN installments about propaganda and manipulating the public.
“You can shape an entire people's perception about anything [depending] on how you do it,” Chester said.
