Washington Post Reporters Bust Right-Wing Plot To Discredit Them

That does not appear to have been the case when a woman approached Post reporters with she a story of having been impregnated by Mr Moore when she was 15 years old. The organization sets up undercover "stings" that involve using false cover stories and covert video recordings meant to expose what the group says is media bias. Mary Landreiu (D-LA.), apparently wanted to help cast doubt on the women's stories.

Red flags were raised during the interview process when Phillips reportedly kept asking The Post reporters for their opinions on how her story might effect Moore's race, and whether her story might crumble his chances to win.

And at the same time, Project Veritas is attempting to undermine the credibility of Roy Moore's real accusers. "How do we do this?" The newspaper did publish a nine-minute interview with the woman, identified as Jaime Philips, with a Post reporter. She became pregnant, she claimed, and Moore drove her to get an abortion in Mississippi.

The Post said that after Phillips was observed walking into the Project Veritas offices, the paper made the decision to publish her previous comments, which were provided off the record, as well as a video showing an interview last Wednesday between Post reporter Stephanie McCrummen and Phillips in which McCrummen challenged Phillips on numerous details of her story.

"Later that day, Phillips told Reinhard that she felt 'anxiety & negative energy after our meeting, ' text messages show", the story continues. The place she gave as her employer had no record of her.

Woodhouse said he was unaware until Monday's Post story that two months before she stayed in his basement apartment, Phillips had posted a GoFundMe online fundraising appeal that said she was laid off from her job as a mortgage broker and was moving to NY to "combat the lies and deceit of the liberal MSM". She claimed in an interview filmed by Washington Post videographers that she was interviewing for a job at the Daily Caller, but the woman she named as her interviewer wasn't actually employed at the conservative website.

"James O'Keefe Shoots at The Washington Post and Misses", blasted the National Review's headline.

In a public statement about the event, Young Americans for Freedom said they invited O'Keefe because his acts "holding organizations and media outlets accountable makes him noteworthy".

The Post also reports she "appears to work with an organization that uses deceptive tactics to secretly record conversations in an effort to embarrass its targets".

In 2014, Project Veritas released a video claiming to show supporters of then-state Sen. The New York-based non-profit reported $4.8 million in contributions nationwide past year. It hurts actual victims by making the public even less likely to believe their stories, while many are already too afraid to come forward because they're anxious they'll be written off as liars. But the video showed signs of adjustment to make comments appear more derisive.
