James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas is back as promised with another exposé of a major media outlet. This time it’s The New York Times.
After a successful takedown of CNN, the American Pravda series is back with undercover journalists inside the Gray Lady, discovering the same thing as it did the first time around: the media is wholly biased to a leftist agenda.
In part one, we are introduced to Nick Dudich, who is the Audience Strategy Editor for NYT Video. His claim is to be a “gatekeeper” for what goes on the social media accounts for the NYT.
"My imprint is on every video we do,” Dudich boasted to the undercover journalist, explaining that it’s not his job to be fair.
“I will be ‘objective,’” he said in air quotes. “No, I’m not. That’s why I’m there.”
Dudich also explained how leftist NYT employees push an anti-Trump agenda to the front pages and how they target everything about the president and his family:
"I'd target his businesses, his dumb f*** of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric...
"Target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott... So a lot of the Trump brands, if you can ruin the Trump brand and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down, or they're hacking or other things. He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or he'd lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to."
Of course, all of this goes against the NYT Ethical Handbook of journalistic standards, which states, “Journalists have no place on the playing field of politics. Staff members are entitled to vote, but they must do nothing that might raise questions about their professional neutrality or that of The Times."
Oops! Wonder if they did a background check on Dudich before hiring him to edit videos for publication. They would’ve learned that he worked on both Hillary Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s campaigns. He worked for Clinton in 2016 as “a volunteer strategist” to make videos “heartfelt for Clinton.”
"I had to leave my job at Fusion ABC to then take a job at Upworthy where I wasn't deemed a journalist anymore to be able to work for the Clinton campaign,” he said in the undercover video.
Once the Clinton campaign ended, Dudich knew he had to get back in the news game “and keep doing shit because, like, this isn't going to change."
Dudich also bragged about his strange connection to former FBI chief James Comey and how he was personally asked by the agency to join Antifa:
"Yeah, I used to be an Antifa punk once upon a time. So, I had fun. They'd start shit, I'm like, ‘I get to hit you. I'm so excited.’
"I joined that stuff for them [the FBI]. I was an asset... So it was intelligence gathering, seeing if they were [sic], what their agenda was, whether they're a threat or not."
When asked how he came to meet Comey, Dudich replied, “He’s my godfather.”
It’s also against the NYT handbook for staffers to work on stories about people they are related to or know personally.
"Well, the Comey hearing, I should have recused myself, but I'm not ever telling anybody there [at the Times] that I have a tie with that or else I don't know if they can keep me on,” Dudich said.
However, Project Veritas later learned that the man’s family has no relationship with Comey. Dudich said he isn’t sure why he said that, but blew it off as "a good story.”
Here’s what O’Keefe had to say:
The fact remains that Nick Dudich lies and he's a gatekeeper at the New York Times. And that fact should be worrisome to the bosses at the paper of record. Who else are they letting spread misinformation in their name?
Stay tuned for part two.
