James O'Keefe and Washington Post Bust Each Other

O'Keefe was booked by the SMU Young Americans for Freedom, a conservative group that booked the controversial conservative activist before Monday's Washington Post expose.

"It says that you're moving to NY, and you've accepted a job to work in the conservative media movement to combat the lies and deceit of the liberal MSM", McCrummen said.

"But on Monday morning, Post reporters saw her walking into the NY offices of Project Veritas, an organization that targets the mainstream news media and left-leaning groups", the Post reported, blowing her cover. Not simply because they foiled a "sting" operation that aspired to paint The Washington Post as promoting a political agenda.

The Post did not publish an article based on her unsubstantiated allegations.

One interesting twist is that the Post made a decision to breach its off-the-record agreement with Phillips after confirming that she had lied.

The paper's owner, Amazon.com founder Jeffrey P. Bezos, used the phrase in an interview with The Post's executive editor, Martin Baron, at a tech forum at The Post last May. The Post did not fall for her trick and instead exposed her for the blatant attempt to discredit the many women who have come forward with their stories of sexual assault.

The would-be tipster, later identified by the Post as Phillips, continued communicating with Reinhard and her colleague reporter Stephanie McCrummen for several days, leading to in-person meetings.

What they discovered was that their informant had ties to Project Veritas, inconsistencies in her tall tale and no corroboration. "They're anxious that we have a story on them", Project Veritas wrote on its fundraising page, hinting that it would have more selectively edited videos on the way. "Because of our customary journalistic rigor, we weren't fooled, and we can't honor an "off-the-record" agreement that was solicited in maliciously bad faith".

The woman, who gave her name as Jaime Phillips, said Mr Moore had encouraged her to get an abortion after - a significant claim given his status as a devout Christian and a social conservative.

The Post reported that she claimed to work for NFM Lending in Westchester County, New York.

Another top official at the group is former television producer Robert J. Halderman, who was sentenced to six months in jail in 2010 after he was accused of trying to blackmail late-night host David Letterman. The reporters and editors did their jobs. Her phone number had the wrong area code for where she said she was from, her supposed employer said they didn't have someone by that name working there. That publication told the Post it had no knowledge or record of Phillips interviewing for a job there. James O'Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, declined to answer the Post's questions about her.

Moore has vehemently denied the allegations by those women and five others, and he and his campaign have repeatedly targeted the Post and "liberal media lapdogs". "I just really love girl things and feminism", he says, as he tries to convince Bee he's flawless for the job.
