With all due respect to the Washington Post, democracy doesn’t die in darkness. It dies a tortured death on camera at CNN.
Project Veritas has provided us proof of that observation in the form of undercover videos of incriminating statements directly from the horse’s mouth.
Cary Poarch, who works at CNN’s Washington D.C. Bureau — or perhaps I should say “worked” there — wore a hidden camera “to expose the bias running rampant” at the network. He clandestinely recorded footage over the space of several months. The first Project Veritas report concentrates on network President Jeff Zucker, who detests Donald Trump. (By the way, for anyone confused about what a whistleblower is — and judging from the Democrats’ careless and wrongheaded use of that term in recent weeks — Poarch is a true whistleblower.)
In one of the recordings, Zucker is shown directing staffers to push the impeachment narrative.

I want to stay with this, our top, top – our own reporters, our own political analysts, the top, the top [unintelligible] we have. OK, so make sure we’re doing that. All these moves are moves towards impeachment. So, don’t – don’t lose sight of what the biggest story is.
Zucker isn’t exactly a big fan of Fox News either:
I think what’s going on in America now is really fundamentally result of years of fake news, conspiracy nonsense from Fox News that has taken root in this country. …
The fake conspiracy nonsense that Fox has spread for years is now deeply embedded in American society and at the highest levels of the Republican elected officials as we’ve seen … and frankly, that is beyond destructive for America. …
Zucker also directed his people to stop being nice to Lindsey Graham:
Yeah, so I just want to say on the Lindsey Graham front, I know that there’s a lot of people at CNN that are friendly with Lindsey Graham. It’s time to knock that off and it’s time to call him out.
Not that the network takes kindly to Republicans in general. Christian Sierra, a CNN media coordinator, is captured on hidden camera admittig:
… MSNBC is tougher on Republicans, and we’re tough on the Republicans too. More than so than the Democrats. Our Democratic interviews are like softballs, compared to the Republicans. … [I]f you notice like every time, we ask questions to Republicans, like it’s always a little tougher than when we do get the Democrats.
