O'Keefe Drops Part 2: NYT Editor Brags About Colluding With YouTube To Push Political Agenda

Tyler Durden's picture

Yesterday we covered the latest James O'Keefe undercover video bombshell which featured the New York Times' Audience Strategy Editor, Nick Dudich, admitting to  exploiting his position at the Times to promote content that intentionally sought to, among other things, damage President Trump's businesses as a means towards forcing his resignation (see: O'Keefe Strikes Again, Catches NYT Editors On Hidden Camera: "Targeting Trump's Businesses, His Dumb F**k Of A Son").

Today, Project Veritas is back with part 2 of their New York Times series which features Dudich bragging about his extensive contacts at YouTube that allow him to, among other things, bypass search algos and get his content promoted to the front page and/or buried, depending upon his personal preferences.

"As an editor, I'm a gatekeeper so I can choose what goes out and what doesn't go out. And let's say we wrote something about Facebook negatively... We actually just did a video about Facebook negatively, and I chose to put it in a spot that I knew wouldn't do well."


"Let's say something ends up on the YouTube front page, New York Times freaks out about it, but they don't know it's just because my friends curate the front page. So, it's like, a little bit of mystery you need in any type of job to make it look like what you do is harder than what it is."

Meanwhile, Earnest Pettie, the Brand and Diversity Curation Lead at YouTube - and Dudich's friend and former coworker at Fusion ABC - was also caught on video describing how he buries videos posted by "Alex Jones" while promoting videos from "legitimate news organizations," a designation which he is seemingly allowed to make autonomously.

"There are things that exist in the product that, like, are definitely optimized for news."


"Now, like last night if you searched for Hugh Hefner, there's the search results but then there's also... A carousel comes up with a page that's just news videos.


"There's this need, people are searching for a topic that is, that our systems know is a 'newsy' topic, so let's give them videos that we know to be newsy because we know we have these news partnerships."


"Realistically, that's what the... that's what the news carousel kind of does. So like, it's above the search results so, at the very least, we can say this shelf of videos from news partners is legitimate news because we know that these are legitimate news organizations. And if at that point, somebody decides they're going to scroll past that and go find Alex Jones, well, they were looking for him to begin with anyway."

Of course, in Congress' endless effort to track down the couple hundred thousand dollars that 'Russian-linked' accounts 'may' have spent on Facebook and Twitter ads during the 2016 campaign, why do we suspect they will continue to ignore our own domestic news organzations' relentless attempt to push their own biased, liberal political agendas onto the American public rather than just reporting the news?

With that intro, here is NYT Part II in its entirety:

Those undercover videos with Bob Creamer and his ilk were a death nail.  They bragged about voter fraud and the methods, plus inciting riots at Trump rallies

I didn' know Creamer was Russian!

Youtube did feature a video on its home page for a full week just before British general election, encouraging all SJWs to vote  - trying to sabotage Brexit. Pretty successful if you ask me.

True story and I respect the org, but I interviewed with PV and was invited to fly out for "situational testing" in Chicago. During phone interview for the field journalist-they also had analysis plans for me (I am a BI analyst)-I answered an "ethical position" I took against an employer to which I desc a massive fraud scheme in CC chargesI discovered.

The next day they rescinded the invite...w/e, drain the swamp PV

Read "An Underground History of American Education" by Gatto. This has been rolling a long, loooong time.

But the Internet is allowing some re-humanization to happen.

Don't listen to hours of talk radio, just bits and pieces, but nobody is saying anything about this, which I find very odd.

Unfortunately, these O'Keefe "bombshells" are only bombshells to the relatively small audience that visits ZH and similar sights.  Oily Leftist malfeasance previously documented by O'Keefe before the election barely made a ripple in the MSM

The totally corrupt MSM will not only not argue the documented issues of Fake News bias that are raised, they won't even acknowledge that the issues exist.

O'Keefe is pretty much spitting into the wind.  Which is a shame...

techpriest's picture

CNN has less viewership than Nick at Night. Young people are forwarding these bombshells around to their friends.

Its like a forest fire. Not that big at first, but given the ample fuel and more time, this is going to burn bigger and hotter.

Who are you going to tell about it?

Like Albert Bartlett's lectures on a geometric progression.

We're at the proverbial moment of the awareness of "The Emperor Has No Clothes'

Look, 'Fake New' is in the public's lexicon. And they know that MSM is part of it's definition.

Not so, we can spread the word about something faster than they can take it down. We "force" it into the news when news people decide they need to "save face" (credability).

No, it's accumulative. Each one awakes a couple new people. Each one of those new people will never see the world the same any more. Once you know the trick, it's no longer magic and you can't be mystified by no longer.

There are Many Many more awake now than (in say) 2008.
One of the reasons trump was elected.

It's accumulative. Btw, they know this too. Hence them speeding up on their plans. Things are going faster and faster. Like Alan Toffler's Future Shock on Speed And Acid.

Sounds like a crescendo to me.

We need a thousand more James O'Keefes. I imagine O'Keefe has made a small fortune doing this plus he's exposed the rampant gangsterism in American politics.

techpriest's picture

Here's a great interview of how his org. works: http://tomwoods.com/ep-989-james-okeefe-on-the-lying-media/

He is paying the bills, but is not rich from this. Anyone who really wants to become another O'Keefe if they wish to - there is nothing magic about it, just start doing it consistently.

Stan522's picture

The NY Times and this turd already has an out, or a defense to these recordings. In Part 1, he was caught lying about his relationship with Comey. All both of them needs to do is simply say, they were onto the O'Keefe recordings and simply filled the airways with BS......
