Samantha Bee Expertly Trolls That Failed Sting On The Washington Post

There are plenty of real accusations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore to report. "But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the NY offices of Project Veritas".

Instead, the group ended up showing how thorough the Post's reporting really was. The assumption, presumably, was thatthe Post would be so entranced by this politically ideal story that they'd just run with it - without verification - revealing once and for all that all a woman has to do to be believed by the Libturd Snowflake Fake News Post is simply say she was assaulted by a conservative man, and that all of Moore's accusers were just a bunch of gold-digging fakers out for fortune and fame. "Roy Moore in Alabama". I might know something but I need to keep myself safe. "How do we do this?" The Moore allegations have touched off a political firestorm, with his backers claiming he has been the target of political opponents even as his poll numbers fall.

The Post said that after Phillips was observed walking into the Project Veritas offices, the paper made the decision to publish her previous comments, which were provided off the record, as well as a video showing an interview last Wednesday between Post reporter Stephanie McCrummen and Phillips in which McCrummen challenged Phillips on numerous details of her story.

Inconsistencies in Phillips' explosive stories quickly raised suspicion. A reporter's call to the woman's claimed place of employment in Westchester County, N.Y. revealed that she was not and had never been employed there.

The Washington Post said its reporters followed Ms Phillips to confirm the suspicious and found her entering Project Veritas' New York office.

And for Mike Cernovich, one of the biggest figures on the far right these days, the Post story only opened the door to more questions about the Post's workings. "The woman, Jaime T. Phillips, appears to work with Project Veritas, an organization that attempts to secretly record deceptive conversations with journalists in an effort to discredit mainstream news outlets".

Still at the center of a controversy stemming from an apparent conspiracy to plant fake news in The Washington Post, James O'Keefe will speak at an event on Southern Methodist University's campus Wednesday night.

O'Keefe is set to begin speaking at 7 p.m. SMU's Young Americans for Freedom said attendees can challenge O'Keefe however they see fit. She's positively thrilled to have encountered one of O'Keefe's bad operatives, and finds the whole thing charming and flattering, which wasn't really an available option for a real reporter like McCrummen.

In May 2016, O'Keefe posted hidden camera video of former Oregon House leader Val Hoyle. "The last video cost NYT reporter his job". Rolling Stone relied on only one, single unidentifiable source, while the WaPo had four on-the-record victims - and their stories were backed up by more than 30 corroborating sources. But the video showed signs of adjustment to make comments appear more derisive.
