Project Veritas is back at it again. This time, they've managed to uncover information from Nick Dudich. Dudich is a Audience Strategy Editor for NYT. Dudich, the supposed "Gatekeeper" whose Godfather is none other than former FBI director James Comey claims no one at the Times is aware of this connection, an obvious conflict of interest. In addition to being the "gatekeeper" to the <i>New York Times</i> video library, he admits that political bias plays into his decisions. Dudich claimed to have worked on social media for Barack Obama's 2008 campaign as well as the 2012 re-election. No surprise then that he would also show up as a volunteer media strategist for Hillary Clinton in her 2016 campaign. Part of his job was making her videos more "heartfelt." Talk about having your work cut out for you…
In the Project Veritas video he has no qualms making his bias clear. “I’d target his businesses, his dumb f**k of a son, Donald Jr., and Eric, so they’re running Trump, like, the Trump business. … And you put pressure on his business and you start investigating his business and you start shutting it down. … He cares about his business more than he cares about being President. … He would resign.”

Acccording to the Times' own staff handbook, he should have recused himself from any Comey related stories. It gets weirder though, at one point in the undercover expose by Project Veritas he claims to have been an undercover "Antifa punk" investigating whether or not they were involved in "domestic terrorism." Asked if his Godfather, FBI head Comey, was aware of this he cryptically offered that he "cannot confirm or deny that information." The Project Veritas undercover journalist tried to confirm the Comey connection, but his father doesn't seem to be willing to corroborate either the FBI/Antifa connection or Comey.

"How much are you lying to me about?" the PV journalist asks, "Not much," is the answer by the Comey. Not much, when it comes to well-respected news sources is far too much for my personal taste.
Whether or not the stories of his connection to Comey and Antifa are true or not, the question of journalistic integrity is the same. Either the man is a storyteller or involved in conflict of interest, either way it doesn't seem to bode well for the Times.
