The Fall Out Begins After Veritas Exposes New York Times Collusion With Social Media Giants To Manipulate The News
The Fall Out Begins After Veritas Exposes New York Times Collusion With Social Media Giants To Manipulate The News by Susan Duclos – All News Pipeline
After the Project Veritas videos titled American Pravda: CNN were released showing a CNN producer and panelist admitting, on camera, that the Russian collusion stories they had been peddling non-stop for months as hit pieces against President Trump were “bullsh*t” and a “nothing-burger,”a dire warning went out from New York Times’ Deputy Managing Editor, Clifford Levy.
The social media message started by saying “Newsrooms Beware,” further stating “Someone claiming to be a college student is trying to interview NYT journalists. We’re concerned that it’s a ruse.” Attached to that tweet was a memo explaining that newsroom personnel had received emails requesting interviews from someone who claimed to be a college student, then the memo to colleagues warned “this could be a ruse by someone trying to trick unwary Times journalists into unguarded or damaging statements. (No doubt you recall the hidden-camera ploy used recently on a CNN producer.)
It was the perfect example of the expression: Too little, too late, as Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe so kindly reminded Levy on October 10, 2017, as the new American Pravda: NYT series began, when O’Keefe responded to Levy by saying “Too late. More videos coming.”
So far two videos have been released as part of the American Pravda: NYT segment of the series, where Nick Dudich, Audience Strategy Editor for NYT Video, admits to the NYT manipulating the news so that anti-Trump coverage slants to the front page, and admitting to a lack of objectivity, saying “That’s why I’m here [at the NYT].”
In response to the first video release by Project Veritas, Times spokesperson Danielle Rhoades Ha, issued the following statement, “Based on what we’ve seen in the Project Veritas video, it appears that a recent hire in a junior position violated our ethical standards and misrepresented his role. In his role at The Times, he was responsible for posting already published video on other platforms and was never involved in the creation or editing of Times videos. We are reviewing the situation now.”
That was the same panned reponse the Deputy Managing Editor, Clifford Levy, offered via Twitter as well, but he prefaced by attempting to distance the Times as a whole with the “new guy,” or as he puts it, the “recent hire,” as he states “Project Veritas published a video today purporting to show a junior NYT staffer who is a recent hire. The official NYT response.”
While Dudich obviously embellished in certain areas and Project Veritas usually releases the most damning of the reports first, in this case, the blockbuster, in my opinion, was the second release, where Brand and Diversity Curation lead for YouTube , Earnest Pettie, confirms much of what Dudich asserted about how, on behalf of the NYT, YouTube “curates,” and manipulates the search results to favor the Times. What Petite admits about forcing certain videos to trend, rather than the algorithms being the determining factor as to what is and is not “popular” among users, and pushing what Petite refers to as “legitimate news” to the top, directly contradicts YouTube’s bogus “mission statement” which claims that users, not gatekeepers, decide what’s popular.
“Realistically, that’s what the… that’s what the news carousel kind of does. So like, it’s above the search results so, at the very least, we can say this shelf of videos from news partners is legitimate news because we know that these are legitimate news organizations. And if at that point, somebody decides they’re going to scroll past that and go find Alex Jones, well, they were looking for him to begin with anyway.”
This provides even further proof of what we and many YouTube users have been reporting, since YouTube has started scrubbing, hiding and redirecting searches so that the “news” people see is only the news YouTube, owned by Google, wants them to see.
Another point Dudich makes clear is how he deliberately places stories that affect Facebook negatively, in spots where they will not receive much attention, to protect the social media giant.
“As an editor, I’m a gatekeeper so I can choose what goes out and what doesn’t go out. And let’s say we wrote something about Facebook negatively… We actually just did a video about Facebook negatively, and I chose to put it in a spot that I knew wouldn’t do well.”
For those that think the CNN videos showing a panelists and another person, a producer, along with these new ones showing a videostrategy editor working in cahoots with a YouTube curator to manipulate the news, only shows certain corrupt individuals, rather than a “conspiracy” of MSM on the whole to produce fake news, deliberately manipulate where and what news is seen, then consider the fact that the initial video release from Project Veritas was released on October 10, 2017 yet not one of the “legacy” mainstream media outlets, except the NYT offering only their statement on the video, has reported this news.
A search, specifically highlighting news versus web, for the term “New York Times Project Veritas,” brings up articles at Breitbart, Washington Examiner, RT, Inquistr, Front page Magazine, TheWrap, WND, and a few other conservative leaning outlets, but none of the major mainstream media outlets.
Dudich made his bias clear with statements explaining how he would target President Trump, like “I’d target his businesses, his dumb f*ck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric… yet no MSM source thought this type of bias, from within the New York Times was newsworthy?
The people caught by the undercover Veritas videos are not the exception, they are the rule.
THE FALLOUT BEGINS
Immediately after the release of part one of the American Pravda: NYT, the LinkedIn profile for Nicholas Dudich, who was at the URL: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nicholas-dudich-89606818 now automatically redirects to an “profile unavailable” page, showing Dudich started immediately hiding from the public.
