James O’Keefe Offers $10,000 Awards For Evidence Of ‘Media Malfeasance’ (Video)

Conservative activist James O’Keefe, president of Project Veritas, is ramping up his effort to take down mainstream media by enlisting the help of ordinary citizens to go undercover and expose wrongdoing in newsrooms around the country.

The Project Veritas leader announced he will give $10,000 to anyone who brings him evidence of “corruption, malfeasance and wrongdoing” in the press, The Washington Times reports.

“If you have hidden audio recordings, videotapes or documents inside of a newsroom or media institution, and the material is good enough, I will pay you $10,000,” Mr. O’Keefe says in the video set to be released on Thursday.

According to Richardson, the announcement of the award coincides with the first release of the “CNN Tapes” project, for which Project Veritas is uploading 119 hours of audio recordings taken by an anonymous source within the cable network’s Atlanta headquarters.

The audio, which is from 2009, features behind-the-scenes discussions between reporters, producers and other CNN employees.

Project Veritas says the audio contains evidence that the cable television network endorses a progressive view of journalistic ethics. It also accuses CNN of knowingly misrepresenting polling data in one case.

After the election of President Trump, Mr. O’Keefe said his next target would be the mainstream media.

Project Veritas has compared its new strategy to the one employed by WikiLeaks.

“We want to become a destination where citizens can come forward, work with us and make real impact,” Mr. O’Keefe says in the video.
