James O’Keefe is partisan journalist, but an actual journalist nevertheless. He’s sort of like Glen Greenwald, where Greenwald’s doing serious expose’s of corruption under the “right-wing,” government in Brazil. If all journalists were partisan, but actually journalists, people would like them a lot more.
Project Veritas recently did an extremely embarrassing on stage dance routine at TPUSA’s latest Convention, Americafest 2021! I wrote about that here, and you can see the video below.
The (((ADL))) controlled FBI did a raid on Project Veritas in early November. James O’Keefe put out a video explaining what the FBI was doing, despite the FBI threatening him to keep his mouth shut.
O’Keefe decided to open his mouth as wide as possible, and this was a wise decision. The FBI are a political police, filled to the brim with utter cowards. Never talk to them without recording, and find a way to show the general public what they are doing to you.
Mere days after this FBI raid, the New York Times “mysteriously,” acquires private documents owned by Project Veritas. And that brings us to the article you see above.
In his ruling on Friday, Justice Charles Wood of the Westchester County Supreme Court in New York state ordered the New York Times to give Project Veritas back any physical copies of legal memos prepared by the media watchdog group’s attorneys and to erase all electronic copies.
The judge also upheld his temporary order issued last month against further publication of details from the memos. He said that the documents did not constitute a matter of public concern, adding that they fell under the group’s expectations of privacy that outweighed concerns about press freedoms.
“Steadfast fidelity to, and vigilance in protecting First Amendment freedoms cannot be permitted to abrogate the fundamental protections of attorney-client privilege or the basic right to privacy,” Wood ruled.
Project Veritas had raised objections to a November 11 New York Times article that purportedly revealed how the group held discussions with its lawyers to “gauge how far its deceptive reporting practices can go before running afoul of federal laws.
The article’s timing prompted outrage and suspicions that an FBI source might have leaked the newspaper confidential data obtained during recent raids.
It came out in less than a week after an FBI raid of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe’s home – as part of an investigation into the group’s acquisition of a diary supposedly belonging to Ashley Biden, the US president’s daughter.
Obviously we can’t know for sure, but it’s ridiculous to believe that the FBI didn’t leak these documents to the New York Times. The NYT has of course not explained how they obtained said documents.
In a statement, Libby Locke, a lawyer for Project Veritas, said that the ruling affirmed the view that the New York Time’s behavior had been “irregular.”
The decision came as part of a defamation lawsuit Project Veritas filed against the New York Times in 2020 when the paper published an article accusing the group of engaging in “deceptive” journalistic practices. The judge said that while these practices may be of public interest, legal communications were not.
Meanwhile, New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger said the paper would appeal the ruling – claiming that it was without “apparent precedent” and maintained that the documents were “obtained legally in the ordinary course of reporting.”
Of course they didn’t bother explaining how they obtained said documents. Only that they did so through a mysterious method that is nevertheless completely legal.
Top comments were pretty funny.
We’ll talk about anything else that happens with Project Veritas’ ongoing defamation lawsuit against the NYT.
