James O’Keefe crashes network boss Jeff Zucker’s call, reveals months of recordings
Investigative reporting outlet Project Veritas dropped a bombshell on Tuesday, revealing they have been tapping the conference calls of CNN’s president Jeff Zucker and will be releasing months’ worth of recordings.
PV’s James O’Keefe revealed the news in a live stream video on social media, during which he crashed Zucker’s daily conference call and told the anti-Trump network head that he’d been recording him and his executives for the past two months.
O’Keefe crashed Zucker’s call on Tuesday and revealed that he allegedly has months of recordings from the daily call that expose a multitude of issues.
According to O’Keefe, the calls reveal network bosses discussing propaganda and public manipulation tactics to advance their own agenda.
In the video, O’Keefe filmed himself unmuting his phone and crashing the call to confront Zucker.
The footage of the confrontation was recorded live on Periscope and uploaded to O’Keefe’s social media accounts.
O’Keefe said his team was given access to the daily calls by a CNN insider.
“Hey Jeff Zucker, are you there?” O’Keefe says as he jumps into the call.
“Hey, this is James O’Keefe.
“We’ve been listening to your CNN calls for basically two months, recording everything.
“Just wanted to ask you some questions if you have a minute.
“Do you still feel you’re the most trusted name in news?
“Because, I have to say, from what I’ve been hearing on these phone calls, I don’t know about that and we got a lot of recordings that indicate that you’re not really that independent of a journalist.”
A clearly stunned Zucker responded: “OK, thank you for your comments.”
“So everybody, in light of that I think what we’ll do is we’ll set up a new system and we’ll be back with you,” Zucker continued, addressing his staff.
“We’ll do the rest of the call a little bit later.”
O’Keefe responded by saying that he is going to start releasing the recordings today at 7 pm Eastern time.
“It’s important that we hold accountable the mainstream media,” O’Keefe said.
“The media has to be held to account.
“They are hurting the American people with their lies, their innuendo, their slander, the defamation, the hyperbole and I think Mr. Zucker is shaking in his boots right now.
“I think he’s very afraid of what might be coming,” O’Keefe concludes.
