“Fireworks are Coming”: New Media-Exposing Videos Are on the Way
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe issued a stark warning to the mainstream media world on Monday with a video announcing the next stage in his American Pravda series. The series, which has already caught several CNN journalists speaking out of school about the Trump/Russia investigation, is intended to shine a light on the seedy underbelly of liberal political news-gathering. O’Keefe promised that the next set of videos would almost certainly cost a few reporters their jobs.
“In the coming weeks, you’re gonna see one of the biggest investigations this organization has ever done,” O’Keefe said in the video. “It’s a continuation of our American Pravda series. It’s aimed at the media. We’re going after their holy grail. We have tripled our journalists in the field. They are not even here, they are out there everyday. It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna be massive.
“Not only are people in the media probably going to lose their jobs and be exposed for what they are,” O’Keefe said, “but this lawsuit is going to be exposed for what it is. So stay tuned ladies and gentleman. Fireworks are coming,”
In a June interview with Breitbart, O’Keefe said, “I think this is the year that we end fake news.”
That may be a more lofty goal than Project Veritas can accomplish in a year’s time, but O’Keefe is certainly doing more than his fair share of the work to expose the lies and manipulations within the mainstream media. His series exposing CNN was a watershed moment, finally convincing thousands of fence-sitters that conservatives are not lying when they accuse the media of abject bias against the president.
In one of the first bombshell videos, one of O’Keefe’s undercover journalists spoke to CNN Producer John Bonifield about the veracity of the Trump/Russia investigation.
“Could be bullshit,” said Bonifield, unaware that he was being filmed. “I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like, we don’t have any giant proof. Then they say, well there’s still an investigation going on. And you’re like, yeah, I don’t know. If they were finding something we would know about it. The way these leaks happen, they would leak it. They’d leak. If it was something really good, it would leak…I think the president is probably right to say, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun. You have no real proof.”
So now we wait to see which news organization will next feel the fury of O’Keefe’s guerilla journalism. The reference to the “Holy Grail” makes us think he’s going after the (failing) New York Times, but we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, you can bet there are hundreds of reporters thinking back over the last few months, trying to remember if they ever said anything…compromising…to someone they didn’t recognize.
