Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe revealed hundreds of hours of secret audio obtained from CNN newsrooms.
And it exposed one massive CNN lie.
O’Keefe’s secret audio revealed how CNN manipulates polling data to push their liberal narrative.
He released audio that showed the network used old poll results to push their preferred narrative.
Project Veritas published the transcript:
“Miss X: “I read a CNN poll that was taken on June 26 and 28th, and I know that the hearing for the case, the fire fighters case was on the 29th, so the poll was done right before it, and those are still the poll results we’re reporting, so I asked someone in DC who does the poll results about why we hadn’t updated it, and said there were a few newer polls from last week and the week before and there’s CBS news polls and a Rasmussen poll, and he said we don’t use Rasmussen, and I said does CNN plan to do another poll if we’re only using that. He said we’re not going to be doing another poll, those are the results we’ll be using. So I don’t see how that’s reporting all sides because that poll said hold for release until Friday the 10th.”
Arthur Brice: “Who did you talk with?”
Miss X: “Paul [CNN’s Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser].”
Arthur Brice: “Yeah, he’s your director. Yeah, he’s pretty high up in the food chain. I agree. I think it’s dishonest to use outdated information if new information shows something that is in variance with what you’re reporting. It’s just, it’s dishonest.”
When Obama nominated Sonya Sotomayor, the network also misrepresented their polling numbers.
Project Veritas released this transcript:
“The same apathy towards reporting accurate poll numbers was seen in the way CNN released inaccurate poll numbers about Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor.
Miss X: “This wasn’t released until two weeks after. So can we say a newly released poll?”
Joe Sterling: “No, you can’t say that. You can’t say that at all. This isn’t a newly released.”
Miss X: “But it says newly released on Friday.”
Joe Sterling: “I know, how did we write about this? Did we write a wire about this? “I don’t think we stand to change how people think of her [Sotomayor]. Geez, I mean if someone picked this up it’s not going to change – it’s not going to change anybody’s opinion.”
Donald Trump has taken to calling CNN “Very Fake News.”
The explosive revelations that CNN cherry picked poll data to push their narrative stunned many observers.
CNN liked to bill itself as the “most trusted name in news.”

ALL THE PUBLIC WANTS IS the FULL, IMPARTIAL FACTS, HONEST RECORDING , NO SENSATIONALISM, OR HYPE….JUST THE FULL UNEDITED TRUTH.
CNN is not a news organization. It is nothing but a willful propaganda perversity. They have even acknowledged that it is ‘their job to influence people’s opinions’!!! This was stated by an anchor on one of their shows recently. I will never listen to them again, and I know many people who have begun to follow suit.
CNN has lost all credibility. It is a defunct organization. I don’t know why advertisers waste their money here. People are paying very close attention to who advertises where and it will show up in their sales reports.
