In a world where outrage as power, The Washington Post is puffing up and screaming Foul as loudly as possible.
It seems Project Veritas sent in an imposter to profess they had information damaging to Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore… a Republican.
What is clear is that Project Veritas was attempting to solicit a reaction it has received in numerous other circumstances where bogus information offered up to Leftists at News Organizations forgo what most of us would believe should be basic journalistic standards like verifying sources due to their excitement over inflicting damage upon those they disagree with.
The Washington Post appears to have done their job, in this specific case.
And they’re mad. Very mad.
Yep, The Washington Post is Mad, Mad, Mad.
First, their feigned outrage seems to stem from the obvious implication that they do not typically do their job.
Second, they seem to take offense at the subterfuge of a party, well not just any party but rather a ‘conservative’ party, used to test their journalistic vigilance. Who’s to say what the reaction, or lack there of, should they verified that this person was sent to them by a Democrat Lobbying Firm… but in this case…
‘Someone needs to go to jail!’
Kudos to the Post for doing their job… on this one… even if they’re angry they had to do it.
However, testing a media outlet’s honesty is not a crime, yet.
What this is really about is the fear the media has because it knows, knows, that a great many of its Leftists are willing to run with whatever they think will hurt the Constitutionally Limited Government of the United States and any of those who support it. The Media has used this tactic for decades if not longer.
They know that Project Veritas will continue to be successful if it’s not destroyed, and they are screaming for its destruction. Their outrage is a loud warning to other outlets, their reporters and their useful idiots that Project Veritas is out there… so BE CAREFUL!
Their outrage is also a plea for help from their fellow travelers with the effort to destroy Project Veritas and make them an example for any other citizen watchdog groups brave enough to challenge the ‘integrity’, read leftist ideology, of the National Media.
Kudos to Project Veritas too.
If there has ever been a lesson learned over the last decade, Project Veritas can always take a page from their very first victim. Just like ACORN, if the heat gets to be too much… just split up your efforts and give them a bunch of different names, then keep going.
