The investigative journalists at Project Veritas have released a second undercover video exposing what appears to be journalistic misconduct at The New York Times.
In Wednesday’s video, Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich describes how he can influence the news by manipulating social media so that stories that Silicon Valley may not appreciate are swept under the rug.
“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,” Dudich said.
Dudich also claimed his friends at YouTube help to move his content to the front page of the website, something that the platform has long claimed they do not do.
“Let’s say something ends up on the YouTube front page, The 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,” Dudich claimed.
The Project Veritas press release accompanying the video states that Earnest Pettie, the Brand and Diversity Curation Lead at YouTube –also Dudich’s friend and former coworker at Fusion ABC — helps push Dudich’s videos to the top.
In a meeting with Pettie, he said YouTube attempts to push what they believe to be “legitimate” news sources to the top, over alternative news sources like InfoWars.
“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,” Pettie said.
“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,” he said.
This process of handpicking news to feed their viewers while also demonetizing independent journalists who are doing on the ground reporting has left many questioning the credibility of the platform.
“Which organizations have YouTube bestowed with the title of ‘legitimate?'” asked James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. “If YouTube is going to get in the news business, they’re going to have to answer for the sins of their news partners.”
Tuesday, Project Veritas released the first undercover video from within The New York Times, in which Dudich admit to targeting the Trump brands and family to attempt to strong arm President Donald J. Trump into resigning.
In response, The New York Times released a statement saying that based on what they have seen in the Project Veritas video, “it appears that a recent hire in a junior position violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role. In his role at The Times, he was responsible for posting already published video on other platforms and was never involved in the creation or editing of Times videos. We are reviewing the situation now.”
California’s Santa Clara County, Reportedly the Last Place in America to Prohibit Indoor Worship, Finally Lifts Ban Following Supreme Court Order
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley.
The Supreme Court issued an order on Friday that required California’s Santa Clara County to lift its prohibition on indoor religious services.
Santa Clara County is home to Silicon Valley and the city of San Jose. It may have been the last place in the United States to maintain its indoor worship ban prior to the Supreme Court order, which came almost a full year after the in-earnest beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in America.
Bishop Oscar Cantu of San Jose said in a Friday night statement that “I join all Catholics and people of faith in Santa Clara County in expressing our satisfaction in tonight’s U.S. Supreme Court decision rejecting Santa Clara County’s ban on indoor worship services. Santa Clara was the only county in the country to continue such a ban. Banning indoor worship and yet allowing people to gather at airports, personal services establishments, and retail shopping is unconstitutional—and the Supreme Court has said so several times.”
Religious services in Santa Clara County, however, cannot take place at more than 20 percent capacity and without strict mask, social distancing, and sanitization protocols.
After hearing the South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom case, SCOTUS ruled on February 5 in favor of the former and effectively mandated that the state of California lift its ban on indoor religious services. Santa Clara County tried to maintain that the ruling didn’t apply to them because their county directives did not specifically target religious worship, but the court is evidently not buying that explanation given Friday’s order.
The decision back in 2020 to deem religious services “non-essential” was disastrous and evil from the beginning. Glad the Supreme Court has been doing its part to rectify that injustice.
