In brand new hidden camera footage from Project Veritas, CNN technical director Charlie Chester admitted that the network wanted to downplay the string of crimes against Asians because it would hurt the BLM movement.
“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,’” he said.
“The optics of that are not good,” Chester continued.
“These [are] little things that are enough to set back movements, because the far left will start to latch on and create stories like ‘criminalizing an entire people,’ you know, just easier headlines that way, I guess.”
At another point in the video, Chester admitted that CNN refuses to report on racial issues unless it directly implicates white people.
“I haven’t seen anything about focusing on the color of people’s skin that aren’t white. They [CNN] just aren’t saying anything. You know what I mean?”
