Project Veritas seemingly caught feeding false Moore accusations to Washington Post


"Project Veritas, an organization run by conservative activist James O’Keefe, appears to have been get caught trying to pass false sexual misconduct allegations against Senate candidate Roy Moore to The Washington Post, extending its history of deploying deceptive tactics to try to ensnare news organizations in controversy.

"The newspaper reported Monday that a woman who falsely told its reporters she had been impregnated by the embattled GOP candidate as a teenager was seen entering the offices of the organization in New York, seemingly tipping the group’s hand in its efforts to bait The Post into publishing uncorroborated accusations against Moore.

"After a series of interviews with the woman, The Post report said, the newspaper opted not to publish the explosive yet unverified claims. It noted that during the meetings, the purported accuser repeatedly solicited the reporters for opinions on whether her claims would damage Moore in Alabama’s special election on Dec. 12."

...

"Led by O’Keefe, the organization is known for carrying out hidden-camera interviews in which it looks to lure members of established news outlets into making supposedly compromising ethical statements. It has been criticized for deceptively editing footage to misrepresent the subjects’ comments.

"In 2010, O’Keefe was sued for his videos involving members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) purportedly discussing illegal activities. O’Keefe later apologized for the series and paid $100,000 in a settlement.

"O’Keefe was commissioned in 2009 by Andrew Breitbart, founder of the popular conservative news site currently led by former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

"Bannon and Breitbart News are among Moore’s staunchest political allies and defenders."

Couple that with the liberal shills and there you have it.


I'd say the man is innocent. Especially since the Democrats pull this trick every single time that something important is at stake.

you'd say Moore is innocent because some dick tried to feed a fake story & was caught by the good journalists? (this account wasn't one of the ones published as true)

He seems more desperate than a liar. He wasn't trying to push the moore story. He was trying to expose liberal outlets for running anti conservative politician stories with minimal research. Its worked for him in the past, blew up in his face this time.

So he's purposely feeding fake news to news agencies, but that's not a problem at all? And he only tried to dupe one kind of news outlet?

Sounds like outright lying with only an extremely thin veil of notcompletelybullshittothepointofactionablefraud.

Well, it would be if he wasn't caught being actually fraudulent and getting sued over it.

How was Trump supposed to know back then what just came to light.

That some Republicans are using the same trick that the demorats use every time there is someone up for an election that needs to be smeared.

You are aware that this method is not exclusive to one party or the other right?

Didnt say it was a problem, just said what he was actually trying to accomplish. His goal wasnt to get wash post to smear moore. His goal was to get wash post to smear moore with fake news and "catch" them. Again, im sure he has done this before and will do it again, he just got caught this time.

Planned parenthood kills children, that's a stupid comparison. Its funny. The party of science completely forgoes objective reality when it comes to abortions and trannys.

"Planned parenthood kills children"

Someone doesn't understand simple definitions. Someone is also completely evading the point. I will take it as a concession that you recognized you were easily duped and decided to steer away from the fact that okeefe is just a straight up liar.

Okeefe aint a straight up liar. He is about as honest every other journalist. The difference is he had to build his brand and never settled into an established agency like rose.

He tries to convince people of publishing falsehoods. That's about as much of a liar as you can get.

Okeefe is a spreader of alternative facts according to obaminated. That makes him the equal of every other journalist, again, according to obaminated.

It's like the parts of the brain responsible for critical thinking are completely shut off in the mind of a cuckservative. So many false equivalencies.
