James O’Keefe and Project Veritas have released more than 100 hours, or part one, of audio from inside the newsroom of CNN in 2009, the supposed most trusted name in news. Instead of going through all of the information themselves, they are doing a WikiLeaks-style dump and will be asking the public to go through all of the tapes.
This should be rather interesting to say the least, and the usual responses from his critics will be: O’Keefe doctored the footage, committed a criminal offense or is a racist. You know, the usual stuff.
Here is the opening video that exposes the biggest cable news network in the United States today:
The group is also putting forward a $10,000 reward for those who present legally obtained evidence of media malfeasance, corruption and wrongdoing.
“Project Veritas is determined to expose malfeasance, corruption and wrongdoing,” said Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe in a statement. “We want to become a destination where citizen journalists can come forward, work with us and make a real impact. That’s why today, we’re announcing a $10,000 award for anyone that comes forward with legally obtained materials exposing media malfeasance. If you have hidden audio recordings, video tapes or documents inside of a news room or media institution, and the material is good enough, I will pay you $10,000.”
Well, let’s get to work!
