U.S. Attorney Condemns Project Veritas? Unbelievable!

In opposing James O’Keefe’s Motion for a Special Master, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York dangerously condemned Project Veritas as not worthy of journalistic protections afforded under the First Amendment, writing “Project Veritas is not engaged in journalism within any traditional or accepted definition of that word.”

Today however, in an unrelated matter, New York Supreme Court Justice Charles Wood seemed to disagree.

During a nearly a two-hour oral argument on whether the New York Times engaged in litigation misconduct by publishing the privileged attorney-client communications of Project Veritas’ lawyers in Project Veritas’ defamation case against the Times, Justice Charles Wood compared Project Veritas with the New York Times and noted that “both sides” in the case (both Project Veritas and the New York Times) “are media organizations” to which the First Amendment protections apply.
