O’KEEFE: NYT Fires Employee Over “Damaging” Undercover Video
On Tuesday, James O’Keefe released part 3 of Project Veritas’ undercover New York Times operation. The sting targets Senior Homepage Editor Des Shoe, who admits employees at the Times have great difficulty reporting objectively on the Trump administration. On the same day as releasing part 3, O’Keefe announced the subject of part 1, New York Times video gatekeeper Nicholas Dudich, has reportedly been terminated from the paper.
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.
While talking about being objective at the Times, Dudich replies candidly, “No I’m not, that’s why I’m here.“
Dudich considers himself an important player at the New York Times, telling the Project Veritas Journalist “my voice is on… my imprint is on every video we do.”
Dudich goes on to explain what he might do to target President Trump:
“I’d target his businesses, his dumb fuck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric…
“Target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott… So a lot of the Trump brands, if you can ruin the Trump brand and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down, or they’re hacking or other things. He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or he’d lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to.”
Before working at the Times, Dudich worked on the political campaigns of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
In 2016, he was recruited to work for the Clinton campaign:
“So I have that background, so when Clinton in 2016… they needed a volunteer strategist to do video… well, they needed someone to help them do video, and how to make it heartfelt, for Clinton.”
O’Keefe released NYT Part 1 Tuesday morning.
