The latest release in Project Veritas’ American Pravda series features a New York Times senior editor admitting to the blatant liberal bias at the newspaper, calling President Donald J. Trump an idiot, referring to Vice President Mike Pence as a “f–king idiot” — and more.
In the undercover footage released on Tuesday, New York Times Homepage Editor Des Shoe also speculates that journalists at the newspaper were actively trying to dissuade people from voting for Trump.
“I think one of the things that maybe journalists were thinking about is like…Oh, if we write about him, about how insanely crazy he is and how ludicrous his policies are, then maybe people will read it and be like, oh wow, we shouldn’t vote for him,” Shoe tells the undercover investigative journalist.
Shoe also admits that the Gray Lady has a clearly defined liberal-leaning bias, stating, “The New York Times is not…I mean, it’s widely understood to be liberal-leaning. But, American newspapers are not supposed to claim a bias, they’re supposed to be objective.”
“So the…ahh, but the New York Times is not left?” the Project Veritas journalist asked. Shoe clarified, “I’m not saying that they’re not. I’m saying it’s widely, widely understood to be left-leaning.”
The senior editor also states that while the main headlines are supposed to be objective, it has become increasingly difficult “in this day and age.”
“Our main stories are supposed to be objective. It’s very difficult in this day and age to do that,” Shoe said.
Shoe goes on to explain that every time Trump attacks them, it is good for business.
“I mean honestly, Trump has driven us more business than anybody else. Anytime he says failing, we add a boost of subscribers,” Shoe unknowingly tells Project Veritas.
The video concludes with Shoe admitting her own deep resent and bias against the current White House administration.
“I feel like Trump is…is just a…is sort of an idiot in a lot of ways. Just an oblivious idiot,” Shoe states. She also attacks Pence, saying that if you impeach Trump, “then Pence becomes President, Mike Pence, who’s f***ing horrible…I think maybe, possibly worse than Trump.”
Her reason for despising Pence? His religion.
“He’s extremely, extremely religious. He [Pence] at one point backed a bill that hinted at conversion therapy for gay people…Which is like electrocution, stuff like that,” Shoe said.
The Shoe video is the third installment in the series taken from inside the NYT.
“Corruption is inescapable within the mainstream media machine. From the Times editors that dictate the paper’s coverage to the journalists that try to sway the public with their reporting,” Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said in a press release accompanying the latest video.
“In American Pravda, truth takes a back seat to money, and objectivity takes a back seat to politics.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship
Texas has had enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.
State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.
“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.”
I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints.
It's un-American, Un-Texan, & soon to be illegal.https://t.co/zSdirRa1pj

“These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.”
“Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.”
The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.
The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
