James O’Keefe is trying to fulfill his promise to go after the media by employing the help of American citizens nationwide. His offer comes at a time where the label of ‘fake news’ could literally destroy a news agency. If someone exposes a major network of such ‘reporting’ then there will be big problems for them.
The Project Veritas leader announced he will give $10,000 to anyone who brings him evidence of “corruption, malfeasance and wrongdoing” in the press.
“If you have hidden audio recordings, videotapes or documents inside of a newsroom or media institution, and the material is good enough, I will pay you $10,000,” Mr. O’Keefe says in the video set to be released on Thursday.
The announcement of the award coincides with the first release of the “CNN Tapes” project, for which Project Veritas is uploading 119 hours of audio recordings taken by an anonymous source within the cable network’s Atlanta headquarters.
The audio, which is from 2009, features behind-the-scenes discussions between reporters, producers and other CNN employees.
Project Veritas says the audio contains evidence that the cable television network endorses a progressive view of journalistic ethics. It also accuses CNN of knowingly misrepresenting polling data in one case.
