American Pravda: New York Times

The New York Times, the supposed "paper of record" purports to be an unbiased newspaper that conducts by-the-books facts-based journalism. 

Project Veritas released undercover videos revealing the exact opposite. In the videos, New York Times editors explain a company-wide anti-Trump culture, how they skew their coverage to chase clicks, and that they leverage relationships with Silicon Valley tech companies to push personal editorial agendas.

American Pravda, NYT Part I – Slanting the News & A Bizarre Comey Connection

Project Veritas' first installment in the American Pravda, New York Times series takes aim at The New York Times, the supposed "paper of record." Nicholas Dudich, Audience Strategy Editor for the Times' extensive video library speaks candidly about how his left political bias influences his editorial judgement and reveals an unusual connection to former FBI Director James Comey, and a strange association with domestic terror group Antifa.


NYT Releases Statement

The Times responded quickly to the first video in an official capacity, stating that Dudich “violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role.” The statement also revealed that the Times is “reviewing the situation.” NYT

American Pravda, NYT Part II – Exploiting Social Media & Manipulating the News

In this American Pravda video, New York Times Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich explains how he can (and has) manipulated news reach based on his own personal agenda. Dudich also reveals that thanks to inside-baseball connections in Silicon Valley, he can exploit social media to his advantage for the Times.


NYT Changes Social Media Policy

In the wake of Project Veritas videos showing the left-bias of NYT employees, the NYT issued an “expanded set of guidelines for journalists’ use of social media” in an effort to appear more impartial. NYT

Part 3

American Pravda, NYT Part III – Senior Homepage Editor Reveals Biased Political Agenda at NYT

Undercover video obtained by Project Veritas shows New York Times London Senior Staff Editor Desiree Shoe revealing a biased political agenda in the operation of the so-called ‘paper of record.’ Shoe explains a difficulty in reporting about President Donald Trump objectively due to political bias. In one exchange, she says that journalists covered Trump in such a sensational way during the election season so as to deter readers from voting for him. Shoe also shares her negative opinion of Vice President Mike Pence, citing his religious views.


NYT Executive Editor Says O'Keefe "Not a Journalist"

In an appearance on CSPAN, the Executive Editor of the NYT, Dean Baquet, said that James O’Keefe is “not a journalist” and disparaged Project Veritas’ undercover techniques.

New York Times Company Culture Revealed: “Everyone hates Trump” | American Pravda, NYT Part IV

Project Veritas has released undercover audio of an IT Consultant for The New York Times admitting The Times has a company culture of anti-Trump bias. Todd Gordon, who works in-house at The Times, says he has not met a single person who likes Trump: "Everyone hates him [Trump]."


NYT Executive Editor Says Videos Are "Damaging"

Following the first two video releases, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet called Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe “despicable,” and also said that the Veritas videos were “damaging.”
