[Statement] The Millions-Strong Constituency of My Faith Votes Calls Journalists to a Higher Standard, after CNN tape

DALLAS — Following the publishing of Project Veritas’ video, which revealed a startling bias against the Trump administration by CNN, My Faith Votes CEO Jason Yates issues the following statement:

“I found it disturbing to listen to a senior news producer discussing the way one of our nation’s most esteemed news providers is handling issues that are of great concern for the American public. Today too much news is tabloid news, focused entirely upon making money or editorialized news to push a predetermined agenda. Rarely — on the right or the left — are we given the facts without those facts being intermingled in the opinions of those presenting them.

“Our country finds itself in an extremely sensitive moment. Americans deserve more from the press, and they deserve the truth. Otherwise trust in our sacred free press will continue to be eroded, and the press will be guilty of the very indiscretions of which they accuse our politicians.

“My Faith Votes calls American journalists to a higher standard, to take a fully non-partisan and judicious stand on matters that impact the everyday lives of Americans.”
