James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released the third part of their most recent series on exposing CNN, on Friday, showing a network director admitting that they try to help Black Lives Matter and that shootings lose “steam” if they are committed by a suspect who is not white.

On BLM and hate crimes, CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester said:

  • “I was trying to do some research on the Asian hate, like the people [who] are getting attacked and whatnot. A bunch of black men have been attacking Asians. I’m like ‘What are you doing? Like, we [CNN] are trying to help BLM.’”
  • “The optics of that are not good. These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements, because the far [right] will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess.”

When asked by Project Veritas’ undercover journalist about the network covering shooters who are from different racial backgrounds, Chester responded:

  • “Yeah I, for the longest while, the story was like, people were lapping up that it was like, you know, white guys for like so long. I don’t, I haven’t seen anything about focusing on the color of people’s skin that aren’t white. They just aren’t saying anything. You know what I mean? They’re just not, all of a sudden that story loses a little steam from it. They just like leave it be.”
