It's War, and the Washington Post Knows It - Bloomberg view.
Quote:
The Washington Post exposed a fraud this week, which is not particularly remarkable. But there was something unusual about it. ...
The Post put more than its methods on display in its handling of a scam run by Project Veritas, an agitprop outfit run by James O’Keefe, a younger and even less principled version of right-wing provocateur Roger Stone. O'Keefe, who enjoys a $317,000 salary courtesy of right-wing funders, once tried to lure a female CNN reporter to a boat where he intended to seduce her -- if that is the correct term for what he had in mind -- and secretly film the results. A distraught O’Keefe colleague tipped off the reporter, sparing her who knows what.

A guy who looks like a twelve year-old that stole his Mommy's credit card?
Yeah, I bet he DREAMED he was going to seduce her.
