James O’Keefe confronted Washington Post writer, Paul Farhi on Wednesday about his fake news article claiming Project Veritas didn’t disclose that the producer in the first video, John Bonifield was in Atlanta.
The Rebel Media reported an email exchange between O’Keefe and Farhi where O’Keefe says, “Paul, I’m going to give you one more chance, here are the two quotes:
WHAT I SAID:
“I’d like to introduce you to CNN supervising producer, John Bonefield in Atlanta”
“It also doesn’t disclose that he is in Atlanta – not in Washington or New York where most of CNN’s coverage of national affairs and politics are produced.”
The WaPo writer is reporting false information, yet refuses to make a correction.
Farhi also said that his editors have no correction/retraction on his story.
Farhi also told one source to “apologize or drop dead” when confronted about his fake news reporting.

James O’Keefe called WaPo writer, Paul Farhi and confronted him about a factual error in his article about the undercover video released by Project Veritas.
“(The video) doesn’t disclose that he is based in Atlanta – not in Washington or New York, where most of CNN’s coverage of national affairs and politics are produced,” Farhi writes.
O’Keefe specifically mentions that Bonifield is based in Atlanta in the video.
O’Keefe clearly says in the video’s intro, “I’d like to introduce you to CNN’s supervising producer John Bonifield from Atlanta.”
O’Keefe tells Farhi in a phone call, “There’s a factual error that says i did not mention that john was based in Atlanta. In my on-camera in the video I clearly state that he, you know, he’s from Atlanta. Can you publish a retraction on that?”
Farhi replies with, “Let me look into it. Yes, if we got it wrong we got it wrong, we’ll correct.”
As of right now, WaPo has not issued a retraction or correction. In fact, they are doubling down on their defiance. Farhi told one source to ‘drop dead’ when confronted about his fake news reporting. Classy!
