In their latest expose, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas revealed that they’ve been recording CNN’s conference calls for the past two months, including directives to reporters by CNN president Jeff Zucker. I’m not sure if this actually qualifies as news, though, because I can’t imagine anyone would be surprised to learn that it sounded more like a bunch of unhinged leftists having a dorm room Trump-hate bull session than a phone meeting of professional journalists discussing the news.

We did learn that CNN didn't want to cover the Hunter Biden laptop story (Jake Tapper called it “too disgusting” - at least he didn't call it "icky"), that Zucker thought CNN’s anti-Trump banner headlines were actually too polite, that he compared Trump not conceding to the situation preceding 9/11, and that he urged his staff to “go after Lindsay Graham.” There was also some smearing of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for “naked racism” and promoting white supremacy by CNN’s general counsel. CNN tried to accuse Carlson of racism for misidentifying the speaker as a black executive, but Carlson pointed out that CNN, perhaps desperate to change the subject, once again got the story wrong. Project Veritas misidentified the speaker, but Carlson didn’t identify him at all. Well, research and accuracy are not CNN’s strong points.

Rather than claim the tapes were fake or doctored or deny what they revealed, CNN expressed outrage at O'Keefe for recording them and threatened legal action for releasing them. I’m strangely reminded of the DNC’s response to the release of all those emails in 2016.

Zucker and CNN should just take a chill pill. I hardly consider it a major revelation to find out that CNN is not a news network but a biased propaganda mouthpiece for the Democratic Party. I would’ve been far more shocked if those tapes had revealed them engaging in actual, objective journalism.

    If they did the same to Fox News it would probably show the same bias !

    This is right on. They make me think of a social club that just get together to gossip & make fun of those not in their click!
    They all need to go back to kindergarten & learn what truth, honesty & respect is along with History. Maybe it’d do them good to be required to do about 100 hours of service for fifty different families and learn there’s more than their Social clicks in America and they’re some very smart & knowledgeable people who are much more qualified to be journalists.
    Thank you Governor for all you do.
