Part Two of Project Veritas’ sting on The Washington Post has the paper’s national security reporter admitting on hidden camera that the Trump-Russia collusion story — which the paper has been covering obsessively for over a year — doesn’t hold much weight.
National security reporter Adam Entous said, “Our reporting has not taken us to a place where I would be able to say with any confidence that the result of it is going to be the president being guilty of being in cahoots with the Russians. There’s no evidence of that that I’ve seen so far.”
Entous, who says he has done most of the Post’s reporting on the ongoing Russia investigation, continued: “We’ve seen a lot of flirtation, if you will, between them, but nothing that, in my opinion, would rank as actual collusion. Now that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist, it just means we haven’t found it yet. Or maybe it doesn’t exist.”
He told the Project Veritas undercover reporter that “it could just be lower level people being manipulated or manipulating.”
Entous admitted that he has no idea how the investigation will go, describing it as both a “f*cking black box” and a “f*cking crap shoot.”
The Washington Post’s anti-Trump editorial page, as founder of Project Veritas James O’Keefe points out, does not seem to be taking its lead from Entous’ reporting, however.
“Why doesn’t the editorial page reflect what the news people report?” O’Keefe asked. “The only explanation for the Post’s mishandling of the Russia story is bias,” O’Keefe declared. As an example of that bias, he cited Melissa McCullough, director of newsroom operations, who admitted her anti-Trump bias on tape: “Let’s just hope he doesn’t get re-elected in another three years,” she said, adding that President Trump is “living on a different planet.”
McCullough later backtracked. “I shouldn’t be saying these things,” she said, “because we don’t…. We’re not supposed to really talk about that kind of stuff.”
“The mainstream media want to destroy Project Veritas. Why? Because we hold them accountable. They see us as their enemy. Those who dwell within the media complex cannot abide us. It is not just their jobs they are worried about. It is their power,” said O’Keefe.
“Project Veritas has a stone lodged between Goliath’s eyes. The media wants me to kneel down and apologize. I will not. We will keep pushing, we will keep fighting, we will expose the truth because there’s no one else doing it. They’re out for blood, but we will not surrender.”
