According to data, CNN averaged 2.2 million viewers during the first three weeks of the year 2021. However, they only averaged one million viewers since Biden took office, this is a staggering decline of 54%.
Few days ago, a video from an undercover journalist revealed how CNN’s political motivations during the 2020 presidential election, as admitted and candidly mentioned by a CNN staffer.
Charles Chester, CNN network technical director, revealed the horrific details about the political motivations that the CNN network had during the 2020 presidential election. He even boasted that the network helped defeat former President Trump in the presidential race.
Chester shed light on how the network wanted to remove to its nemesis, former President Trump, and help Biden in the Presidential race. This was exposed in the first part of the three-part #ExposeCNN campaign that was launched by Project Veritas, a right-wing guerilla news outlet.

“Look at what we did, we got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it. And I 100% believe it that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out,” Chester said.
The video was released by the Project Veritas. Although some parts of it were seemingly deceptive and taken out of context, in most part of the video, you can hear and see Chester make remarks related to the network’s political agenda and “propaganda.” Most of the clips also feature him speaking in clear, complete sentences.
Chester also boasted that he was “one step down” from a director. Chester also claimed that CNN was “creating a story” the questioned former President Trump’s health that “we didn’t know anything about,” calling it as a “propaganda” in order to help remove Trump from office.
“Trump was, I don’t know, like shaking his hand or whatever… we brought in like so many medical people to like all tell a story that, like, it was all speculation that he was like neurologically damaged, that he was losing it, he’s unfit to, you know, whatever,” Chester said. He added, “We were creating a story that we didn’t know anything about.”

Chester also mentioned that the network wanted to “promote health and fitness of Biden,” in addition to his claims that CNN wanted to help remove former President Trump from office.
“We would always show shots of him jogging… him in his aviator shades and like you paint him as a young geriatric,” Chester said of Biden, before making comments that he is a fan of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Chester said, “I think we got him through this term. He’s not going to f—–g die, but I’m OK with that. [Harris] probably could be like a b—-h in like a board meeting and you’d hate her as a boss, but she’s f—–g real and better than what we got regardless.”
In another conversation after the “COVID fatigue,” from CNN’s coverage, Chester said that the network will “start focusing mainly on climate” once the public is “open to it.”
Chester said, “Our focus was to get Trump out of office. Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So our next thing is going to be for climate change awareness.”

The undercover journalist asked, “Do you think it’s going to be just like a lot of like fear for the climate?” Chester responded, “Yeah. Fear sells.”
CNN did not immediately respond to request for comment about the matter. The network also did not immediately responded when they were asked if Chester is still employed.
