James O’Keefe revealed Tuesday morning that his organization Project Veritas has secretly recorded CNN conference calls over the span of two months. Many of the recordings involve the network’s President, Jeff Zucker.

In the recordings, Zucker is heard disparaging President Trump. During a conference call on Oct. 9, he urged his staff to not “normalize” the President’s “erratic” behavior as he was recovering from the coronavirus, suggesting the president’s medical treatment was affecting his actions.

From Fox News:

In another conference call a week later, Oct. 16, Zucker appears to allude to the Hunter Biden email scandal that the New York Post broke just two days prior — as well as the unmasking controversy involving top Obama administration officials, including now-President-elect Biden, requesting the identity of former Trump national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn during the transition, both stories Zucker suggested the network shouldn’t cover.

“The Trump media, you know, moves immediately from — OK, well, never mind — the unmasking was, you know, found to be completely nonsensical to the latest alleged scandal and expects everybody to just follow suit,” Zucker told his staff. “So, I don’t think that we should be repeating unsubstantiated smears just because the rightwing media suggests that we should.”

Zucker’s message on dismissing the Hunter Biden controversy appeared to have later resonated with his star anchor Jake Tapper, who said Oct. 22 that the allegations against Biden’s son were “too disgusting” to repeat on air and that the “rightwing is going crazy.”
