Backfire: Project Veritas 'sting' of Washington Post only makes the paper look better

As Twitchy reported earlier Monday, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas had just teased another expose, this one involving the Washington Post, whose reporters were waiting outside his headquarters to “ambush” him.


A few hours later, Project Veritas and O’Keefe were the leading trends on Twitter, and not in a good way. It appears those Washington Post reporters had tracked down a woman who had met with a Washington Post reporter to feed her a false accusation against Alamaba Senate candidate Roy Moore. Busted.

The Post reports:

In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.

But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups. The organization sets up undercover “stings” that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias.


We’ll hand it over to Ben Shaprio, who sums thinks up nicely, as usual.


We’ve been fans of O’Keefe’s work in the past, but this “sting” seemed off from the beginning. Had there been some credible accusation that the Washington Post had been paying women for their stories, that certainly would have been ripe for a sting operation. But trying to plant a deliberately fake story to prove it could be done? To help Roy Moore’s case? Was that the idea?




At the end of the day, Project Veritas did have a new video to show, but it wasn’t much.
