CNN is hosting a live climate-change townhall in the wake of a staffer disclosing in a hidden-camera exchange with Project Veritas that the network plans to pivot its focus from COVID-19 to climate change, noting “fear sells.”

Moderated by CNN anchor Dana Bash, “The Climate Crisis” will air Friday night, featuring Biden climate envoy John Kerry, White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.
Project Veritas published conversations with CNN technical director Charles Chester, who said the network will “start focusing mainly on climate.”
The focus over the past four years, he acknowledged, was “to get Trump out of office.”
Chester, explaining that “fear sells,” said it’s CNN CEO Jeff Zucker who decides what the network’s focus will be.
He said in another exchange with Project Veritas that climate is “going to be the next COVID thing for CNN.”
In a virtual meeting Friday on climate change, Biden told world leaders, “We’re really beginning to make some real progress.”
Biden recently vowed to reduce U.S. emissions by at least 50% by 2030, which is more than double the commitment of the Obama administration under the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
CNN.com published an op-ed Friday by Columbia University Professor Jeffrey Sachs with gushing praise for Biden’s virtual summit Friday.
“By every standard, President Joe Biden’s climate change summit was a remarkable success,” wrote Sachs, the director of Columbia’s Center for Sustainable Development and president of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.
“With great diplomatic dexterity, Biden and climate envoy John Kerry assembled world leaders representing 82% of world carbon emissions, 73% of the world population and 86% of world economic output to commit to bold climate action,” he said.
Sachs said Biden “deftly used the occasion to set the US economy on the path of bold decarbonization by 2030.”
“And all of this was accomplished by videoconference, a daily act for schoolchildren and office workers, yet and much-needed breakthrough for a gathering of world leaders.”
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
