    Default Swing and a miss for project veritas

    Looks like James O'Keefe's Project Stupid-Ass, er, Veritas, tried to pull one over on the Washington Post by planting a woman with a false story about Roy Moore and trying to get them to run with her unsubstantiated fairy tale. Didn't work out so well for him.

    A woman who falsely claimed to The Washington Post that Roy Moore, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama, impregnated her as a teenager appears to work with an organization that uses deceptive tactics to secretly record conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets.

    In a series of interviews over two weeks, the woman shared a dramatic story about an alleged sexual relationship with Moore in 1992 that led to an abortion when she was 15. During the interviews, she repeatedly pressed Post reporters to give their opinions on the effects that her claims could have on Moore’s candidacy if she went public.


    The Post did not publish an article based on her unsubstantiated account. When Post reporters confronted her with inconsistencies in her story and an Internet posting that raised doubts about her motivations, she insisted that she was not working with any organization that targets journalists.


    But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the New York offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups.

    The organization sets up undercover “stings” that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias.

    James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas who was convicted of a misdemeanor in 2010 for using a fake identity to enter a federal building during a previous sting, declined to answer questions about the woman outside the Project Veritas office, a storefront in Mamaroneck, N.Y., on Monday morning shortly after the woman walked inside.


    “I am not doing an interview right now, so I’m not going to say a word,” O’Keefe said.

    I'm wrong, apparently plead out to misdemeanor. Guess he still has something to aspire to.

    Which is why it backfired spectacularly. This actually gives even more credibility to Moore's real accusers.

    First thing I did upon hearing this story was head over to GP to see how they'd spin it. They truly are on another planet.

    Yes they are my friend. But the depressing reality is that there are countless Americans who blindly swallow their garbage as if it was the Holy Gospel.

    as it stands, he unwittingly strengthened the case that the Washington Post is very careful with its sources.

    Most conservatives used to be honorable and trustworthy. Now they're just a bunch of miserable dishonest scumbags.

    Their ravenous quest for power is disturbing.

    Moore's staunch supporters will never see this...or see it that way.

    They'll believe the Gateway Pundit.

    It doesn't matter. By Thursday, F&F will be giving cues to the Meat Golem. By next Monday, it will prophetic truth that O'Keefe caught the Post in a scandal because he exposed that Soros had 'operatives' there.
    Give praise to the American children who sacrifice themselves every 60 hours in blessed martyrdom that guns may be free.

    No he hasn't.

    He heavily edits covertly recorded video to manipulate the context of what's been recorded.

    He's extremely dishonest. On top of that he seems to be a bit of a fruitcake.
