Update: The New York Times has just responded to the latest Project Veritas bombshell by dismissing the target of the undercover video, Nick Dudich, as a “recent hire” in a “junior position” who “misrepresented his role.”
The NYT confirmed that it looked as though he had “violated our ethical standards” and said they’re “reviewing the situation.”
Here is the full statement from NYT spokeswoman, Danielle Rhoades Ha:
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.
All of which sounds like Dudich is about to find himself without a job…maybe it’s time to do another tour of duty with Antifa?
In the latest of a series of undercover operations targeting mainstream media bias, James O’Keefe has just dropped a new undercover video which takes direct aim at the New York Times’ Audience Strategy Editor, Nick Dudich, who admits repeatedly to promoting content that intentionally seeks to, among other things, damage President Trump’s businesses as a means towards forcing his resignation.
Here is a brief intro from Project Veritas:
While talking about being objective at the Times, Dudich replies candidly, “No I’m not, that’s why I’m here.”
Dudich considers himself an important player at the New York Times, telling the Project Veritas Journalist “my voice is on… my imprint is on every video we do.”
Dudich goes on to explain what he might do to target President Trump:
“I’d target his businesses, his dumb fuck of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric…
“Target that. Get people to boycott going to his hotels. Boycott… So a lot of the Trump brands, if you can ruin the Trump brand and you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down, or they’re hacking or other things.
He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. He would resign. Or he’d lash out and do something incredibly illegal, which he would have to.”
When the undercover journalist asks Dudich if he could make sure that the anti-Trump stories make it to the front, he replied, “Oh, we always do.”

In 2016, he was recruited to work for the Clinton campaign:
“So I have that background, so when Clinton in 2016… they needed a volunteer strategist to do video… well, they needed someone to help them do video, and how to make it heartfelt, for Clinton.”
He even had to quit his job in journalism in order to work for the Clinton campaign: “I had to leave my job at Fusion ABC to then take a job at Upworthy where I wasn’t deemed a journalist anymore to be able to work for the Clinton campaign.”
Dudich explains how his activism motivated him to re-engage in the news business: “Like, after the Clinton campaign, I’m like, no I need to get back into news and keep doing shit because, like, this isn’t going to change.”

Bizarrely, Dudich also claims to have joined the Antifa movement as an undercover agent for the FBI… a request which he originally said came from his godfather, James Comey, even though he subsequently retracted that statement.
Nicholas Dudich also told the undercover journalist bizarre stories about his personal connection to the FBI and his previous excitement as part of Anti-Fa.
“Yeah, I used to be an Anti-Fa punk once upon a time.” he told the undercover journalist. “So, I had fun. They’d start s**t, I’m like, I get to hit you. I’m so excited.”
He also claims that James Comey, former Director of the FBI, asked him to join Anti-Fa: “I joined that stuff for them [the FBI]. I was an asset… So it was intelligence gathering, seeing if they were [sic], what their agenda was, whether they’re a threat or not.”
“How’d you meet Comey?” asked the Project Veritas journalist. “He’s my godfather,” Dudich explained. “My dad and mom knew him and his wife for a really long time.”
“Well the Comey hearing, I should have recused myself, but I’m not ever telling anybody there [at the Times] that I have a tie with that or else I don’t know if they can keep me on.”
With that intro, here is the complete video:
Why do we feel like it’s Dudich whose resignation is imminent as opposed to Trump’s?
