James O’Keefe on Tuesday morning dialed into CNN’s conference call with senior leadership and told president Jeff Zucker that he has been recording insider calls for two months.
O’Keefe live-streamed the call to periscope.
“Do you still feel you’re the most trusted name in news?” O’Keefe asked Zucker.
A very nervous Zucker skirted around the question and said, “thank you for uh — thank you for your comments. So, everybody, I think in light of that, we’ll set up a new system, and we’ll be back with you, we’ll do the rest of the call a little bit later, okay?” Zucker said as he hung up the call.
O’Keefe told Zucker he would be releasing the recordings tonight at 7 PM.

Per O’Keefe, Project Veritas has “clips of various producers talking, the president talking, describing their motives, describing their political philosophy, describing how they don’t cover certain things and certain political parties tell them to cover things a certain way.”
Individuals including Zucker, Vice President David Chalian, Stephanie Becker, and Marcus Mabry.
“Hey Jeff Zucker are you there?… This is @JamesOKeefeIII”
