In a video announcement released on September 18th, Project Veritas founder and guerrilla journalist James O’Keefe warned his organization was currently operating one of the biggest ever investigations into the mainstream media’s ‘holy grail,’ promising media people will likely lose their jobs over the imminent exposé.
As previously reported, James O’Keefe released part one of his ‘American Pravda’ series with CNN on June 27th and subsequently released 2 more videos exposing CNN for reporting on the Russian collusion “Nothing Burger”.
O’Keefe says his goal is to expose the real motivation behind the decision making process in our dominant media corporation. The Russia story has dominated CNN. Since the inauguration, CNN has mentioned Russia on air nearly 16,000 times. Early Tuesday morning, O’Keefe teased that he recorded the New York Times in a tweet to President Trump.
Project Veritas released part one Tuesday morning. It’s a video of the New York Times video gatekeeper Nicholas Dudich, who was caught on hidden-camera boasting of his lack of journalistic ethics. Dudich, who serves as Audience Strategy Editor, displays a lack of integrity throughout the video, manages videos which go “on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram” for the Times.

Project Veritas has released its second New York Times video, again featuring Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich. This time, the video gatekeeper describes how he can influence the news by manipulating social media and employing the help of his friends in Silicon Valley.
“As an editor, I’m a gatekeeper so I can choose what goes out and what doesn’t go out. And let’s say we wrote something about Facebook negatively… We actually just did a video about Facebook negatively, and I chose to put it in a spot that I knew wouldn’t do well.”
Dudich admits he has friends in Silicon Valley who help his videos trend. He buried the Facebook story because of his personal biases, and to protect his friends in Silicon Valley, which is in conflict with the New York Times mission. When asked if it’s good for business to have Silicon Valley connections, Dudich replied, “Yeah. Very good. Very, very good.” Dudich goes on to explain why he doesn’t want anyone at The Times to know about his connections:
“Let’s say something ends up on the YouTube front page, New York Times freaks out about it, but they don’t know it’s just because my friends curate the front page. So, it’s like, a little bit of mystery you need in any type of job to make it look like what you do is harder than what it is.”
Prior to launching part two of Project Veritas’ video series exposing the New York Times, James O’Keefe went live on Periscope to offer a behind the scenes update on the fall out from the tapes. O’Keefe explained the New York Times has yet to fire the Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich. An investigation into Dudick is on going.
O’Keefe then goes on to explain the significance of going undercover in YouTube. This feat has never been done, says the Project Veritas founder. YouTube wields tremendous power, the source in O’Keefe’s part II video explains. The New York Times and YouTube can use algorithms to promote or stymie content that doesn’t fit the narrative.
O’Keefe reveals Alex Marlowe, Breitbart News’ Editor-in-Chief believes part II will amount to a serious “fallout,” either at YouTube or the New York Times. “Part II is absolutelty damning,” says O’Keefe. “It goes right to the top.”
