Project Veritas has released part three of their American Pravda New York Times investigation. The video is of the NYT Homepage Editor Des Shoe, who was caught on hidden-camera admitting that the Times has a liberal bias and attacking President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
Shoe reveals a biased political agenda in the operation of the so-called ‘paper of record.’ She explains a difficulty in reporting about Trump objectively due to political bias.
When confronted with the notion that during the election, The Times‘ front page, for which she is responsible, was completely focused around Trump, she tells the undercover journalist that NYT reporters tried to influence the election with their reporting:
“I think one of the things that maybe journalists were thinking about is like…Oh, if we write about him, about how insanely crazy he is and how ludicrous his policies are, then maybe people will read it and be like, oh wow, we shouldn’t vote for him.”
She admits that the New York Times has a clearly defined liberal-leaning bias: “The New York Times is not…I mean, it’s widely understood to be liberal-leaning. But, American newspapers are not supposed to claim a bias, they’re supposed to be objective.”
Shoe blames the business model for the New York Times‘ lack of fact-based reporting:
“This is what I was trying to say is like the last couple years it’s changed for the bad…
“I think the business model itself is just… there’s so much panic about what to do that, you know, what else is a company supposed to do?
“That’s the conundrum… is that a business model, in this time is built on what the readers want.”

Des Shoe‘s Twitter feed, which is now private, demonstrates her blatant left-wing bias. On Twitter, Shoe has defended Antifa, praised comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s pro-Obamacare stance and accused President Trump of being a racist. The trifecta!
The New York Times employee has also RT’d anti-Trump figures such as former New York Attorney General Preet Bharara ripping into Donald Trump Jr.

Following the release of O’Keefe’s damaging videos, Baquet says the paper will “institute tougher social media rules for employees.”
Shoe is in clear violation of the New York Times’ new social media policy.
