The latest video from conservative activist James O'Keefe's Project Veritas is sure to cause a series of headaches for the folks at the New York Times.
The video reveals a discussion between a Project Veritas undercover reported and Nick Dudich, the Audience Strategy Editor for the Times' video department, in which Dudich freely admits to doing everything possible to promote anti-Trump coverage and even claims alleged family connection to former FBI director James Comey.
In the video, Dudich — who worked on the Clinton campaign — boasts of his status as a "gatekeeper" for the Times' videos. "My imprint is on every video we do," he says. He also brags about promoting his liberal slant, admitting that "no I'm not [objective], that's why I'm here."
Oh, and Mr. Dudich also confessed to at one time being a member of Antifa — the violent left-wing group some accuse of being a terrorist organization. "Yeah, I used to be an Anti-Fa punk once upon a time," he says. "So, I had fun. They'd start s**t, I'm like, I get to hit you. I'm so excited."
But perhaps Dudich's most bizarre — and potentially problematic for the New York Times — comments were his claims to have a close family relationship with James Comey.
"I joined that stuff for them [the FBI]. I was an asset... So it was intelligence gathering, seeing if they were [sic], what their agenda was, whether they're a threat or not," he claimed.
When asked by the Project Veritas journalist how he met Comey, Dudich responded: "He's my godfather — my dad and mom knew him and his wife for a really long time."
"Well the Comey hearing, I should have recused myself," Dudich continues, "but I'm not ever telling anybody there [at the Times] that I have a tie with that or else I don't know if they can keep me on." His family denies any connection to the Comeys.
