In secretly recorded video clips released by Project Veritas on Tuesday, a CNN employee admitted his network worked to get then-President Donald Trump out of office during the 2020 presidential election.

The heavily edited composite video centers exclusively on CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester—on seemingly separate occasions—saying on camera that the cable network tried to get then-candidate Joe Biden elected.

“Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it, and I 100% believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out […] I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that,” Chester said to someone off camera during one instance shown by Project Veritas.

Other statements made by Chester throughout the video include but are not limited to:

  • “We would always show shots of him [Biden] jogging and that [he’s] healthy, you know, and him in aviator shades. Like you paint him as a young geriatric.”
  • “It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be for climate change awareness.”

Following Project Veritas posting the Chester video to Twitter at noon, “#ExposeCNN” was trending on the social media site by the late afternoon on Thursday.

Conservatives as influential as Donald Trump Jr. were employing the hashtag in response to the Project Veritas report.

“CNN is propaganda. Pass it on,” Trump Jr. tweeted, followed by the hashtag.

Embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) also joined in on the online furor, simply writing “Preach!” when retweeting Trump Jr.’s post.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’

Published

supply chain

The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”

The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”

An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.

In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.

Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”

As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”

Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
