    CNN got called out by Project Veritas. Gonna put this here.






    These videos already confirmed what we knew about CNN. Thanks to this whistleblower who actually had the balls to show his face.

    Info is good, so already people resort to attacking the messenger.

    Veritas does some pretty good work. The footage is well done and pretty damning. The second video some of you democractic primary voters should really watch because CNN is clearly rigging the debates. Or hey, hate on O'Keefe's approach while going on blind to CNN's war on real journalism.

    Of course anyone paying attention knew this was the case.

    Oh because I critique CNN I must like Fox News right? Hell no. They're awful too. Their work to sell the Iraq war should be considered a criminal offense. This is a good window into the mindset of the people behind the scene.

    I don't know if CNN is as bad as FOX, but they're certainly trying.

    https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Project_Veritas

    Project Veritas is a group affiliated with James O'Keefe, a right-wing provocateur known for a series of deceptive videos attacking targets like Planned Parenthood and ACORN, a community organizing group.[1] As of 2017, Porject Veritas's main targets were the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups via "undercover 'stings' that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias."[2]

    In fall 2014, the group "launched a political offshoot with its sights set on high-profile campaigns and organizations" called Project Veritas Action, according to Mother Jones.[3]

    In its tax filings, Project Veritas states that its mission "is to train, educate, and inform others to investigate and expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical and transparent society."[4] Some of the primary methods used by O'Keefe and other Project Veritas operatives, however, use disguises and deceptive editing.

    The messenger gets attacked because the messenger has no credibility at this point. Project Veritas has consistently put out things that are dishonest and completely slanted. It’s surprising that anyone believes their schtick considering how many times they’ve been exposed.

    I don’t like CNN, I think they are a hack organization at this point, but there are sources that are legit that attack them on that front. Resorting to defending this uncredible organization leaves you with no credibility via association.

    Sorry, no. Some trust is required in these sorts of things and O'Keefe has burned it all. If the info is good, use a different messenger. I will not waste my time with that dude.

    Veritas has done zero good work. They have never had a single credible story. I kept checking for some time thinking maybe one of them would actually be credible. It never has been.

    The real joke is on you for taking anything Veritas does as legitimate.

    Why don’t you start a thread worth reading, @dachuda86. A thread attacking Mr trump for betraying our Kurdish allies, bending over for Turkish strongman Erdogan, who’s doing all of this crap for domestic reasons, helping Russia tremendously in the region and around the world by dramatically hurting trust in American foreign policy, destabilizing the Middle East and, the cherry on top, giving Assad a reach around?

    Why don’t you start a thread about that? I usually don’t start threads. You start them all the time.

    Please ... CNN helped put Trump in the White House. Even if PV wasn’t the definition of fake news, CNN producers pushing narrative negatively towards Trump is really not anything to make a thread and bitch about.

    Who cares?? CNN might be bias against Trump in the producers room, but on air they do the opposite of what they should to get him out of office.... which is to support Democrats which they certainly do not.
