Project Veritas Has Been Secretly Recording CNN, Jeff Zucker Calls; Will Release Tonight

CNN is about to take yet another L in 2020.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe crashed CNN President Jeff Zucker's executive call on Tuesday to reveal he has been secretly eavesdropping on and recording the daily meetings for months.

“Hey Jeff Zucker, are you there?” O’Keefe unmuted himself for the first time. “Hey, this is James O’Keefe. We’ve been listening to your CNN calls for basically two months, recording everything. Just wanted to ask you some questions if you have a minute. Do you still feel you’re the most trusted name in news, because I have to say from what I’ve been hearing on these phone calls, I don’t know about that. And we got a lot of recordings that indicate that you’re not really that independent of a journalist.”

Zucker then told his staff they'd pick up the meeting later after they "set up a new system."

O’Keefe, still live on Periscope, said he expects that Zucker is terrified of the material that O'Keefe must have on him.

“It’s important that we hold accountable the mainstream media,” O’Keefe went on. “The media has to be held to account. They are hurting the American people with their lies, their innuendo, their slander, the defamation, the hyperbole, and I think Mr. Zucker is shaking in his boots right now. I think he’s very afraid of what might be coming.”

O’Keefe says he will begin releasing the recordings at 7 p.m. tonight.

Last October, the Daily Wire reported that a contractor working at CNN recorded videos of Zucker admitting his network is "pushing the agenda of the Democrat Party by making all their news coverage about 'moves towards impeachment'".

Ironically, CNN's parent company is AT&T, which likely is aware of private call security. Maybe?

What do you think is on these calls? Hopefully, it will clear up the following:

What a network.
