James O’Keefe Busts James Comey’s Purported ‘Godson,’ Video Editor at New York Times

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released another mainstream media exposé — this time, showing a former Democratic campaign operative who helps edit the New York Times‘ video content on social media platforms and apparently pretended to be James Comey’s godson.


In the video, New York Times Audience Strategy Editor Nicholas Dudich claims to have worked on social media for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and to have worked on his 2012 re-election effort. He also says he was a volunteer media strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, making her videos more “heartfelt.” Now, he says in the video, “I will be ‘objective.’ No, I’m not. That’s why I’m there. Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, no I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.”

In the Project Veritas video, he is shown expressing his ideas for bringing President Trump down: “I’d target his businesses, his dumb f**k of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. … And you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down. … He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. … He would resign.”

Bizarrely, Dudich then claims that former FBI director James Comey is his “godfather,” but it is not clear whether he meant that literally: “I’ve met him. He’s a great guy, actually. … [H]e’s my godfather. … My dad and mom knew him and his wife for a really long time.” Although Dudich is shown speaking to a Project Veritas reporter down the street from the Times‘ main New York office, it is not clear where this particular portion of the video, among others, was shot. Dudich then is shown admitting that according to Times policies, he should have recused himself from editing videos on Comey’s testimony before Congress, but did not — and that he could lose his job at the Times if anyone knew.

In yet another bizarre portion of the Project Veritas video, Dudich seems to suggest that he was an undercover FBI informant as a member of the radical, violent left-wing Antifa organization (“I used to be an AntiFa punk once upon a time”), gathering “intelligence” as to whether they were involved in “domestic terrorism.” When asked if Comey was aware of his activities in Antifa, he answers: “I cannot confirm or deny that information.”

The video shows that Project Veritas journalists attempted to corroborate Dudich’s claims about his relationship to Comey, but both his grandmother and his father are seen claiming they have no knowledge of the connection. The video then shows Dudich denying the truth of his earlier “godfather” statement when asked why members of his family did not corroborate his claim.

Either way, claims O’Keefe in the video, the New York Times must face serious questions about its journalistic integrity

James O’Keefe Busts YouTube Deciding What Is ‘Legitimate’ News, and What Isn’t

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released a follow-up to its exposé of bias at the New York Times earlier this week. This time, the target is YouTube, the ubiquitous video-sharing platform owned by technology giant Google.

Project Veritas picks up where the first video left off, in conversation with the Times‘ Audience Strategy Editor, Nicholas Dudich, a former Democratic campaign operative who was shown suggesting that his political views informed his work publishing Times videos on social media platforms. (The Times responded to that first video with a statement saying that Dudich had “violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role” in editing video content, but admitting that “he was responsible for posting already published video on other platforms.”)

The second video shows Dudich describing his relationships with staff at YouTube, and suggesting that he uses those relationships to promote or bury Times videos according to his own views.

He says he ensured a Times video that portrayed Facebook “negatively” was not promoted: “I chose to put it in a spot that I knew wouldn’t do well.” He says he can promote videos through “my friends at YouTube.” He adds: “My friends curate the front page.”

Next, the Project Veritas video shows conversations with one of Dudich’s apparent contacts at YouTube, Earnest Pettie, the “brand and diversity curation lead” at the company. Pettie is shown explaining to Project Veritas’s undercover journalist that the “news carousel,” a new feature on YouTube, is curated carefully by editors so that regardless of what videos the algorithms promote, only “legitimate” news sources are highlighted for the public.

Pettie is shown explaining that YouTube chooses to promote videos from its “news partnerships,” including with the Times. “We can say that this shelf of videos from news partners is legitimate news because we know that these are legitimate news organizations,” he says.

In one undercover interview, Pettie is seen wearing a hoodie with the Google logo on the arm and “black lives matter” across the chest. It is unclear if it is was produced or sanctioned by Google.
