Project Veritas on Wednesday released a snippet of undercover audio in which CNN president Jeff Zucker is heard encouraging staff to be “fully committed” to taking President Trump’s impeachment seriously, arguing that those who are “covering it up” are “lying.”
“We are at an incredibly important time in history and this country and this is the story,” Zucker is heard telling reporters on a CNN conference call, according to Breitbart News. “This is it and I want to be fully committed to it, and not take our eye off this ball.
“I also don’t want to be afraid to call out those who are covering it up and obfuscating, and coming out and saying there’s nothing to see here, because they’re lying,” he added.
This video clip comes after Project Veritas published a separate video of a media coordinator at CNN, which calls itself “the most trusted name in news,” saying Zucker has a “personal vendetta” against Trump. To quote the network’s tagline, “This is CNN.”
