Undercover journalist James O’Keefe and his group Project Veritas released some secretly recorded video clips on Tuesday that O’Keefe believes show CNN’s political bias — particularly the outlet’s alleged favoritism toward 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
O’Keefe’s video features former CNN satellite uplink technician Cary Poarch — who wore a hidden camera “to expose the bias” at the cable news outlet.
Poarch used his camera to capture a discussion with Christian Sierra, a CNN media coordinator.
“I think they like Warren a lot,” said Sierra.
“They’re pro-Warren for now.”

Also shown on the video is CNN’s senior justice correspondent, Evan Perez, who commented that former Vice President Joe Biden “has a problem, because his son was trading in his name.”
“It looks bad, it smells bad … How do you go and say, ‘President Trump is the problem, get him out of here’ and convict him when your son is doing the same s***?” Perez can be heard saying.
Sierra even admitted CNN doesn’t necessarily treat candidates fairly — including such candidates as Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) or tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
“Just ’cause they’re going to talk about Biden more, Sanders — they’re not going to mention the others,” he said.
Sierra also admitted CNN’s leadership doesn’t like Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) — and that news anchor Anderson Cooper doesn’t like President Donald Trump.
“Every day, he’s always like mocking him and stuff,” Sierra said.
Project Veritas released a video on Monday prior to the one featuring Sierra, which captured CNN head Jeff Zucker on audio saying on his daily call, “Let’s just stay focused on impeachment.”
Poarch said that Zucker did this every day on the call, just “hammering Trump in some way, shape or form, or Republicans in general.”
Poarch’s said Zucker communicated that while there may be other stories to cover, “we want to divert all our resources to this aspect of Trump or that aspect of Trump.”
More recently, Zucker reportedly said it’s “just all about impeachment — impeachment, impeachment, impeachment.”

None of this is shocking.
Anyone who watches CNN for two minutes can see the blatant liberal bias, in our view — and now we have this video confirming that.
CNN is staffed and led by the same people who become angry when Trump describes the press as the “enemy of the people” — yet this video reminds us they are precisely that when they choose to mold and create news instead of just reporting.
In a true republican democracy, the people choose their leaders and the media reflect those preferences.
This is a “news” outlet trying to stuff its own preferences down Americans’ throats.
