ABC News Suspends Reporter On Eve Of Project Veritas Exposure


Written by Shelby Talcott | Media Reporter |

ABC News has suspended a reporter involved in an upcoming Project Veritas video the evening before the project is set to be released. Project Veritas, a conservative watchdog group, plans to release a video Wednesday exposing bias at ABC News, founder James O’Keefe tweeted. Veteran reporter David Wright was suspended Tuesday evening ahead of the project’s release, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation.

“Any action that damages our reputation for fairness and impartiality or gives the appearance of compromising it harms ABC News and the individuals involved,” a statement given to the Daily Caller from an ABC News spokesman reads. “David Wright has been suspended, and to avoid any possible appearance of bias, he will be reassigned away from political coverage when he returns.”

They have previously received insider videos exposing network biases in numerous networks, including CNN and ABC News. The watchdog group has also aired videos of a Democratic Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ staffer promoting violence against his political opponents.

The upcoming Project Veritas video “will expose ABC News’ agenda to mislead voters and push their own narratives,” O’Keefe tweeted.

The video will air tomorrow. Project Veritas previously exposed ABC News over allegedly covering up reporting on deceased accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. (RELATED: Katie Pavlich Ties ABC’s Epstein Cover-Up To Clintons, Stephanopoulos)

James O’Keefe strikes again!

Project Veritas released a new undercover video on Wednesday of ‘Socialist’ ABC reporter David Wright admitting his bosses spike stories important to voters. David Wright is on camera admitting he is an overt Socialist who thinks there’s “too many billionaires.” Wright was suspended on Tuesday night before Project Veritas dropped the video of him admitting his network doesn’t cover President Trump fairly.

Via Project Veritas:

Senior ABC Correspondent David Wright on Hidden Camera: How ‘Bosses Don’t See an Upside’ for Reporting News; ‘The Truth Suffers’; Says ABC Doesn’t ‘Give Trump Credit for What Things He Does Do’; ABC News Producer: New Yorkers Need to ‘Cross the Hudson River’ to Learn Why Voters Back Trump

David Wright, ABC News Political Correspondent: “We Also Don’t Give Him [Trump] Credit for What Things He Does do…I Feel Terrible About it, I Feel That the Truth Suffers, the Voters Are Poorly Informed…Our Bosses Don’t See an Upside in Doing the Job We’re Supposed to do.”
David Wright: “In Television, We Have Lost Any Sense of Context.”

Wright: “We Don’t Hold Him [Trump] to Account. We Also Don’t Give Him Credit for What Things He Does Do.”

Are You a Democrat Socialist? Wright: “Oh yeah. More than that I would consider myself a socialist; like I think there should be national health insurance. I’m totally fine with reigning in corporations, I think they’re too many billionaires, and I think there’s a wealth gap–that’s a problem.”

Wright: “You Can’t Watch ‘Good Morning America’ Without a Disney Princess or a Marvel Avenger Appearing.”

Wright: “We’re in This Awkward Moment…We Have This F**king President, and We Can’t Figure Out How to Challenge Him.”

To Andy Fies, ABC News Producer: “People in New York Are Constantly, I Think, Fascinated by, ‘How Can People Like Donald Trump?’…You Know, Well F**k! Cross the Hudson Now and Then, and Come Out and Spend Some Time, and You’ll Hear Why!”

Fies: Real People, Practical Issues? “Those things aren’t TV-friendly.”

Project Veritas: Bernie Sanders Field Organizer Suggests Gulags to Help ‘Nazified’ Trump Voters

An undercover video published by Project Veritas on Tuesday shows a field organizer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign saying Soviet gulags were actually a positive phenomenon, suggesting that some similar program could re-educate Trump supporters and billionaires.

The video begins with a Project Veritas journalist asking an individual identified as Sanders organizer Kyle Jurek if “MAGA people” could be re-educated if Sanders wins the White House. “We gotta try,” Jurek replies. “In Nazi Germany, after the fall of the Nazi Party, there was a shit-ton of the populace that was fuck**g Nazified.”

“Germany had to spend billions of dollars re-educating their fuck**g people to not be Nazis,” he continues. “We’re probably going to have to do the same fuck**g thing here.”

“That’s kind of what all Bernie’s whole fuck**g like, ‘hey, free education for everybody’ because we’re going to have to teach you to not be a fuck**g Nazi,” he added.

In another part of the video, Jurek is seen discussing Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin’s use of gulags, where he claims that the CIA was overly critical of them. “People were actually paid a living wage in the gulags. They have conjugal visits in gulags. Gulags were meant for re-education,” he says.

Jurek is then seen suggesting that the most effective way to re-educate the billionaire class is to order them to “break rocks for 12 hours a day.”

“[The] greatest way to break a fuck**g billionaire of their privilege and their idea that they’re superior, go and break rocks for 12 hours a day. You’re now a working class person, and you’re going to fuck**g learn what the means, right?”

The video also shows Jurek warning that Milwaukee, host of this year’s Democratic National Convention, will “burn” if Sanders fails to win the party’s nomination. “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC convention, fuck**g Milwaukee will burn,” says Jurek. “It’ll start in Milwaukee and then when the police push back on that, other sites will fuck**g [explode].”

The footage concludes with Jurek issuing the chilling prediction that Milwaukee could see riots akin to the 1968 convention in Chicago, where left-wing activists engaged in violent riots in the streets. “Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC convention. We’re going to make [1968] look like a fuck**g girl’s scout fuck**g cookout,” warns the Sanders field organizer. “The cops are going to be the ones fuck**g beaten in Milwaukee.”

The undercover video’s emergence comes as 2020 Democrats are slated to debate Tuesday evening — their final meeting before Iowa holds the nation’s first caucus on February 3. Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe has teased that Tuesday’s footage is one of several upcoming videos to be released as part of the group’s “Expose2020” campaign.

In Tight Race, Tenn. Dem’s Own Staff Says He’s Lying To Get Votes


Reported By Karista Baldwin | October 11, 2018 at 11:33am

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas’ undercover reporting just exposed the double-dealing tactics that Tennessee Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen is using in his 2018 election campaign for the U.S Senate. The group released damning undercover video footage of staffers from Bredesen’s campaign revealing that Bredesen is not above lying to voters to get elected. And his staff has no problem helping him get away with it.

On Friday, Bredesen voiced support for Judge Brett Kavanaugh and said that he wanted him on the Supreme Court, according to The Washington Post. This, according to Bredesen’s own staffers, is a total lie.

On the Project Veritas video, a man identified as Will Stewart, a field organizer for Bredesen’s campaign, was asked if Bredesen “would actually vote yes” on Kavanaugh’s confirmation if he were in the Senate. Stewart quickly set things straight.

“Oh, he wouldn’t,” Stewart said. “But he’s saying he would.” (“It’s politics,” another campaign staffer added.)

“Which, I don’t know if it makes it worse or better,” Stewart continued. “No, it makes it better.”

“I don’t understand what’s to gain by saying yes,” the undercover Project Veritas journalist prodded.

“Moderates,” Stewart said.

“Moderate Republicans,” another staffer agreed.

The duplicitous strategy seems to be common knowledge among Bredesen’s staff.

A woman identified as Maria Amalla, another field organizer, responded to why Bredesen would lie about supporting Kavanaugh, saying, “Yeah, because it’s a political move and he’s trying to make up those points.”

“I guess we won’t know until November 6th whether or not this was worth it,” she said.

Apparently, lying was the only way Bredesen could see himself beating Marsha Blackburn.

“We’re down eight points and it also said that … 74 percent of Tennesseans wanted to see Kavanaugh confirmed. Logically, based on those numbers and what I’ve seen, is that he had already known that the gap between him and her has grown more,” Amalla said, referring to Blackburn.

“And so he thought that by coming out in support that it would get more Republicans on his side. He wasn’t doing as well in the rural parts … He thinks that by saying this he’s appealing to more moderate Republicans and he’ll get more of them to vote for us,” Amalla continued.

Bredesen doesn’t hold much respect for the people he wants to represent, with Stewart agreeing that Bredesen can get away with his tactics because Tennesseans are “ignorant.”

The Project Veritas journalist also talked to a man identified as James Miller of “voter protection” on Bredesen’s staff. “I think it’s important to just remind yourself that it’s just a political move, right?” the journalist asked him.

“Yeah.  But isn’t that gross?” Miller said, lowering his voice. “That’s the way it has to go.”

“I just hate that he has to like … lie to get that vote,” the journalist said.

“I know. I know. Tell me about it.  Unfortunately, that’s reality,” Miller agreed.

Another field organizer, identified as Delaney Brown, said she hoped that all the deception at least pays off in the election.

“I know I’m going to be p—ed if this doesn’t pay off,” she said in the video.  “If we lose, I’m going to be so mad.  Because not only did he forfeit a lot of moral high ground … if it’d still lose, if it’s by a small margin, that’s the base.”

But campaign staffers assured the reporter that Bredesen’s just pulling a bait and switch. Fear not! His staff says that once Bredesen gets in office, he won’t feel any obligation to follow through with his campaign promises, since he doesn’t plan on running for re-election again anyway. Phew.

“He’s not going to be running for re-election. He can get in there and do the right thing,” Stewart said. “Between you and me, once Phil actually gets into the Senate, he’ll be a good Democrat.”

Right … once Bredesen’s elected he’ll “do the right thing.” No reason to jump the gun and act ethically while he’s campaigning.

“Once you’re in, six years, you’re going to do the right thing,” Miller also said. He agreed that Bredesen would be a good Democrat, saying, “100 percent. Always has been.”

Stewart also said that despite orders not to act as if Democrats are simply running against Trump, that’s actually pretty much the point.

“We don’t say that out of these walls. But here, of course, we talk about that,” Stewart said. “Cause it’s so funny. The messaging is like, ‘don’t talk about the blue wave. We’re not running against Trump.’ All this sort of stuff. Even though that’s all why we’re all here.  We can’t put it out there.”

Stewart then added that Bredesen “hates Trump.”

But if Democrats want to beat Republicans, they could learn a thing or two from them. Stop looking down on the people you need to vote you and show them respect instead, starting with not blatantly lying to them to try to con them into supporting you.

Also, if you do need to con people to get them to vote for you, maybe re-evaluate some of what you actually stand for.

I’m with Bredesen’s staff on this one in one respect — it’s just plain gross.

DOJ Is Assessing Employee Featured in Undercover ‘Deep State’ Video Released by Project Veritas


Reported By Jared Harris | September 20, 2018 at

12:30pm

The conservative activist group Project Veritas is creating shockwaves around the nation’s capital with its latest undercover videos. On the videos, federal employees boasted about slowing President Donald Trump’s agenda with resistance from inside the government — effectively acting as the kind of “deep state” President Donald Trump’s supporters are so suspicious of.

A woman identified as Department of Justice paralegal Allison Hrabar was one of those caught on the video, which is titled “Deep State Unmasked.” She was one of the leaders of the group that harassed Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in a D.C.-area Mexican restaurant in June, according to the Project Veritas video.

On camera, she speaks of like-minded co-workers who talk of “how we can resist from the inside.”

https://www.projectveritas.com/video/deep-state-unmasked-doj-official-resists-from-inside-cant-get-fired-leaks-at-hhs/fvp/

And she’s apparently not afraid of any repercussions.

“Like, what’s kind of lucky is at the DOJ, we can’t really get fired,” she said in the Project Veritas video.

The DOJ said in a statement that the video’s contents were “deeply concerning.”

The department is looking into the videos over a policy that “prohibits misuse of government resources to advance personal interests.” Possibly to highlight the seriousness of the situation, the matter was also referred to the department’s Office of the Inspector General.

Project Veritas, the source of the sting videos, has a long history of undercover investigations. One of its projects shook up The New York Times so much an editor got fired.

Several of the Deep State videos have been released this week. Some have even been picked and played on FOX News.

On video, the employee talks about slowing down the gears of government and destroying capitalists. He was identified by Project Veritas as “Natarajan Subramanian … a government auditor for the GAO and a member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America.”

He claimed there are a “fair number” of Democratic Socialists are federal employees.

The Democratic Socialists of America are hostile of their perceived version of capitalism.

In the organization’s constitution, it pledges to firmly “reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, disability status, age, religion, and national origin, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo.”

The alleged “deep state” operatives exposed in the Project Veritas videos show a disregard for the rule of law, and are using their taxpayer-funded positions to push a dangerous socialist agenda.

We can only hope more investigations are to follow.

Hidden Cam: Anti-Trump ‘Democratic Socialist’ Working At State Department Vows To ‘F–k Sh-t Up’ At Every Level


Reported By | Wes Walker |

Just a couple of weeks ago the entire left CHEERED as ‘heroic’ some anonymous chucklehead that claimed to be gumming up the works in the White House. A hidden cam conversation found a guy just like that working in the State Department. How ‘heroic’ does it seem once it’s unmasked? #Resist

He’s one of those ‘Democratic Socialists’ the Left has been warming up to. And he’s living on the taxpayer dime, bragging that he can’t be fired for his ethics violations.

Let’s test his ‘I can’t be fired’ theory, shall we?

Project Veritas went undercover again. Here’s the highlight reel version of the first installment of what they’ve brought back:

Here’s the full version:

Today, Project Veritas released the first installment in an undercover video investigation series unmasking the deep state. This video features a State Department employee, Stuart Karaffa, engaged in radical socialist political activity on the taxpayer’s dime, while advocating for resistance to official government policies. In addition to being a State Department employee Stuart Karaffa is also a ranking member of the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America (Metro DC DSA.)

Metro DC DSA is a socialist group that works to advance progressive causes in the metropolitan DC area.

[…]Stuart Karaffa is just the first federal government employee that Project Veritas has recorded in an undercover series unmasking the deep state.

“We’ve heard a lot about the Deep State; holdovers from the previous administration resisting change or nameless and faceless bureaucrats slowing things down or leaking secrets in an effort to undermine this administration,” said Project Veritas President James O’Keefe. “What is truly striking is their boldness, they are not afraid. They are even boastful about a warped reality, where they won’t get caught and can’t get fired even if they did.”

This is what we mean by ‘drain the swamp’. This is also why we have a ‘Hatch Act’.

As for my own personal favorite moment in the video, it would have to be this one:

He thinks he can get away with subverting the system on the government dime. He may be getting a very different kind of government assistance soon enough. But which kind?
