Project Veritas vs. CNN, Ch. 3

James O’Keefe released the third Project Veritas CNN video today. It reprises a few highlights of the first two editions, and shows excerpts from an undercover conversation with a CNN producer who says that pretty much everyone at CNN hates President Trump, and American voters are “stupid as sh*t.” (I have long been struck by how readily many journalists, who themselves are not mental giants, label the rest of us dumb.)

There is more, which, while not particularly notable, does paint the picture of CNN as a political actor rather than a reputable news source. We will see how much more O’Keefe has in store, but I wonder whether CNN’s reputation can ever recover–not so much from Project Veritas’s expose as from the network’s own behavior during the Trump presidency.
