Last October, Project Veritas, a far-right citizen journalism organization run by publicity stunt gnome James O'Keefe, released a heavily-hyped and heavily-doctored project promising to #ExposeCNN.

Well, like literally every single Project Veritas operation, the #ExposeCNN videos were incredibly misleading and didn't expose a single thing, except show a few clips of low-level "media coordinators" drinking beers at a D.C. bar and dropping purported bombshells like CNN president Jeff Zucker had an "ongoing feud with Trump since 'The Apprentice.'"

The operation also leaned heavily on the daily organization-wide phone calls from Zucker, who can be heard telling his staff to focus on Trump's impeachment. Big stuff. It should be noted that nothing in these videos was actually new, and most of these "revelations" were all things Zucker has said in public, but perhaps it just sounds more provocative when viewed through a series of shaky footage under the guise of a "whistleblower."
