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

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:
