The Supreme Court of New York located in Westchester Country just delivered a massive victory to the conservative investigative reporting group Project Veritas on Friday.

The court denied The New York Times’ motion to dismiss a major defamation suit brought against it by Project Veritas over the paper’s decision to publicly label Project Veritas’ reporting on illegal ballot harvesting in Minnesota as ‘deceptive.’


As Project Veritas reports:

[NEW YORK – Mar. 19, 2021] Yesterday, Justice Charles D. Wood of the Supreme Court of New York in Westchester County denied The New York Times’ Motion to Dismiss in the defamation lawsuit brought forward by Project Veritas….

The New York Times defended calling Project Veritas’ Minnesota Ballot Harvesting videos “deceptive” by arguing this was simply an “unverifiable expression of opinion.”

Project Veritas pointed out this “opinion” was printed in the news section of The New York Times and the Court agreed: “if a writer interjects an opinion in a news article (and will seek to claim legal protections as opinion) it stands to reason that the writer should have an obligation to alert the reader … that it is opinion.”  The Times did not do so, and the Court found this troubling.

The Court found Project Veritas demonstrated “a substantial basis in law and fact that the Defendants [The New York Times] acted with actual malice, that is, with knowledge that the statements in the Articles were false or made with reckless disregard of whether they were false or not” and Project Veritas should be permitted to “conduct discovery.”

This is LONG OVERDUE . . .
The NY Times. . .became the New PORK Times – OR – New DORK Times. . .
A Long Time Ago. . .

Jill Abrahams – Spoke about HOW LOW. . .
This Once VENERABLE – Publication. . . has SUNK. . .
As far Others – since then. . .

The same is True for – WAPO (Turned into CRAPO – by Jeff BOZO). . .
and Many Others. . .

However – Publications – like The ATLANTIC. . .
Have stayed TRUE to their Commie Socialist (Globalist Beholden) Ways. . .
