My name is Cary Poarch and I am the insider who blew the whistle from within CNN.
As you might expect, this was not a decision I made lightly. I considered quitting and just looking for a new place to work, but that seemed like the easy way out when exposed to what concerned me.
I was inspired to wear a hidden camera after I saw and heard information I believed the American people deserved to know, and saw the Facebook whistleblower from earlier this year.
I reached out to Project Veritas and was provided a camera with which I recorded firsthand evidence of rampant bias across the network, and President of CNN Jeff Zucker’s personal vendetta against the President of the United States.
I also recorded a number of longtime CNN employees, many of whom truly want to do their journalistic best, confessing that they are bothered by the bias and relentless drive for ratings that rule the network.
Other networks own their bias, but CNN portrays itself as middle of the road. I believe the American people deserve to know the true agenda of President Jeff Zucker so they understand what’s really going on behind the scenes at CNN and can make informed choices as consumers of media.
As a Bernie supporter in 2016, my goal in blowing the whistle was not to score a win for one side or the other. In fact, it was driven by disappointment. I landed what to me was a dream job as a contracted satellite uplink technician for CNN’s Washington, DC, bureau. Instead, I found myself bothered by one-sided coverage, a relentless drive for ratings over meaningful content, and the skewed judgment of a network president who prevents other stories from overtaking his vendetta against Trump.
At the same time that I embarked on this journey, I am starting another one. In a few months, I’ll become a father for the first time and am settling in a new state far from the Capitol. I hope to be able to continue the work that I enjoy doing, but I’m not sure if that will be the case or when. My concern now that I’ve fulfilled what I saw as my duty, is how I will care for and support the people that I love.
I’m asking for your help as I stare into a vast unknown and what it will entail, from the small things like basic moving costs to the potential for having one of the most powerful media corporations in the world coming after me. I did what I believed was the right thing to do.

I intend to use this money to establish a baseline of financial stability for my family for the next year and face down any legal challenges I may be presented with.
