CNN technical director admits to pushing COVID panic and using death tracker to

ADL hit with blowback over calls for Tucker Carlson to resign

A CNN technical director was documented on an undercover video admitting to peddling fear about the coronavirus pandemic and using the daily death tracker on the screen to do so.

“COVID? Gangbusters with ratings, right? Which is why we constantly have the death toll on the side … Let’s make it higher,” CNN technical director Charlie Chester told an undercover journalist, according to the political action group Project Veritas.

“It's fear. Fear really drives numbers [TV ratings] … Fear is the thing that keeps you tuned in,” Chester added.


Chester seemed aware that what he was saying was controversial, acknowledging that “no one ever says these things out loud.” Chester also declared there is “no such thing as unbiased news” and that it “doesn’t exist.”


I sure hope this gets picked up by more than this article and FOX.

That gun smoked a long time ago for anyone paying attention.

It's nice to get confirmation, but that changes nothing. CNN is still a steaming pile of shit and it's still worshipped by a lot of people who love steaming piles of shit.

It's the way of the world.  :thatsright:
