Ah , Project Veritas .... an organization contradicted by its name.

Project Veritas (PV), led by James O’Keefe, has produced a string of fraudulent video products
and campaigns that rely on deceptive editing, out-of-context clips and exaggerated and false
claims.
● Deceptive editing: 19 months after the PV video sting against Democracy Partners, which
resulted in widespread condemnation and calls for criminal investigations, the
Republican Attorney General in Wisconsin determined – after two investigations – that
the PV videos offered no evidence of criminality and that the “raw” footage O’Keefe
claims to have provided as evidence was edited. (WI DOJ DCI Case Master Report
17-4176).
● Media bias:The Washington Post Staff won a Pulitzer Prize for their investigation into
Roy Moore’s relationship with underaged women and exposing a Project Veritas sting
based on a ruse of a fake Moore victim. Dean Baquet, Executive Editor of The Times,
called Project Veritas’ work writ large “despicable.”



O’Keefe’s tactics have been widely criticized for their deception and are not aligned with
investigative journalism ethics. He describes his work as “one third investigative reporting, one
third intelligence agency, cause we kind of are spies, and one third Borat.” The Chair of the
Society of Professional Journalists said that “James O’Keefe is not an ethical journalist if we
look at his actions in the context of [the Society of Professional Journalists’ ethics code]...he
obviously has an agenda, goes directly to surreptitious reporting methods and has a history of
distorting facts or context.”



O’Keefe supports and collaborates with “Proud Boys” leader Gavin McInnes, “alt-right” leader
Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative commentator Mike Cernovich, among other leading right-wing
figures. He also works with and defends conspiracy theory bloggers such as Alex Jones and
has employed radical Islamophobe Laura Loomer.

Nothing to say about Kyle Jurek?

Why is that?

What do you expect me to say about a 59 second video from the producers of fake news ?

Project Veritas has proven itself repeatedly to be untrustworthy, lying purveyors of clipped together videos and lies.

Totally discredited as a source. Religiously repeated by the right-wing media.


Right now we have the left in flames in this country over various incidents with short clips of videos.

Strangely though, most of those same people on the left dismiss the things vertitas shows in their videos because they say its just clips and we dont see the full context.

SO in this case, when bernis workers talk about cities burning and trump supporters being put in concentration camps, they laughably suggest it must be a lie and there is somehow a context that makes this ok

Yep, veritas is bad.

Anyways, back to the main stream media

They never lie!

Seriously. People will destroy cities based on some out of context video clips on Twitter, but bring Project Veritas up and all of a sudden everyone is incredibly interested in journalistic integrity - meanwhile they like to cite places like the NY Times and MSNBC.

I assume then you would never make a judgement based on a short video.

Like police doing something bad?

Oh and seriously, you [post a source claiming they arent in following with "investigative journalists ethics"

Lol!

Sure, like the russiagate hoax, kavanaugh being a gang rapist, and the rest of the garbage investigative "journalists" have been putting out for years.

What are you talking about? There was just a thread on PP finally admitting to doing everything PV showed them saying they did.

Totally different situation. Everyone knows that the leftist MSM would never, ever, in a million years take something out of context or deceptively edit an otherwise innocuous statement to mislead the public. They certainly wouldn't blatantly lie to their audience.

Yeah right.

A scenario popped in my head about this. Tell me what you think.

What if antifa, and all who are linked to their convenient actions, were put in place to destroy uber liberal cities which would therefore force them into red cities to infiltrate and vote blue? May not happen this election or even next, but they would set their roots in our cities when this stuff isn't tolerated, take leader positions, and then turn our cities into the cities they destroyed and left.

Because, let's be honest, democrats aren't winning another election because of their policies.

I wouldn't make a judgement based on a soundbite , especially when it comes from a source with a track record of deception but you're free do do so if that's what floats your boat.

Oh that guy? He smirked and wore a MAGA hat. He's a racist, raised by racists, taught by racists, attends school with racists, and is being taught by his homophobic school to be even more racist.

Funny to watch a group of people who believe just about anything the MSM establishment tells them. Explain why an independent media source isn't credible.

Regardless of editing these people being filmed say some pretty inflammatory stuff and if the shoe was on the other foot you could damn well believe these same people would believe it if it were a dude in a MAGA hat saying these things...

Independent ?

PV received a donation from the Trump Foundation in 2015 and subsequently produced sting videos related to Common Core that included undercover footage with education leaders and highlighted Trump’s position on Common Core, encouraging viewers to ask questions about Common Core during presidential debates.

Breitbart is known to have funded or facilitated funding to Project Veritas operations, including
one operation bankrolled and orchestrated by Steve Friess.
A former employee claims that they received funding and guidance from Americans For Prosperity.
Most of PV’s donations come from major donors and are hidden; the organization has received support from Peter Thiel, Ben

I remember when the Nazi's used the burning of the Reichstag to begin a reign of oppression against the communists, Jews, the Polish poor, homosexuals, and others that they rounded up and mass executed.

However, this Jurek guy appears to be inciting violence. He should be arrested, and tried.

And, why is the Russian media behind this video? Wouldn't a leftist revolutionary be 'one of their guys'? Something fishy is going on, here.

Mo re evidence that this is action by radicals egging on the riots.

These are the children of the left. They're organized and they have plans. They have targets and they know what they're doing.

The chickens are coming home to roost.


These guys all in black and sporting Clockwork Orange apparel, the ones doing the actual vandalism, are frequently Caucasian and have several times been identified to be police officers and white supremacists. It is a false flag operation.

Of course you would think that since you are a progressive and you don’t like the truth to come out about the underhanded BS Democrats try to pull.

Forget Russian media. They are one of many outlets who showed the clip. I just happened to select theirs on YouTube.

You should make a thread about those white police officers starting false flags in this current situation complete with video to back it up. Let's see it.
