There’s little doubt the mainstream media is going to lash out at America’s number one investigative journalist for this. James O’Keefe has arguably been the biggest thorn in the fake news media’s side; even more so than Donald Trump. Surely, O’Keefe and his Project Veritas will once again ironically be labeled fraudulent and untrustworthy by the mainstream numpties. But O’Keefe’s record speaks for itself.
CBS Morning news now has the misfortune of getting caught up in O’Keefe’s crosshairs.
Per the Project Veritas website: “A CBS News crew pulled medical professionals off the floor at the Cherry Medical Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to line up in their vehicles so a CBS film crew would have a long line for their COVID-19 coverage.”
“Our insider witnessed the whole thing” said O’Keefe “and came to Project Veritas, because he knew we would protect him”.
“The insider told us that medical personnel were taken away from treating patients and making the line longer for actual patients to wait for the COVID-19 test,” added O’Keefe.
O’Keefe then asked the insider: “You’re telling me you’re a hundred percent certain that CBS News, CBS News Corporation–national, staged a fake event. They faked the news. They faked the reality and broadcasted that to all of their audience last Friday on “CBS This Morning.”
The insider’s response: “A hundred percent. Absolutely.”
If Only Project Veritas Was Around in 2008
It’s a shame that CNN’s ratings are down 41%. What’s worse is there’s a simple solution that they refuse to accept. Stop Lying to try to make @realDonaldTrump look bad. https://t.co/O3XyWchsJh pic.twitter.com/BCUCxKnOvO

CBS News of course denies the whole thing.
Its statement reads as follows: “CBS News did not stage anything at the Cherry Health facility. Any suggestion to the contrary is 100% false. These allegations are deeply disturbing. We reached out to Cherry Health to address them immediately. They informed us for the first time that one of their chief officers told at least one staffer to get in the testing line along with real patients. No one from CBS News had any knowledge of this prior to tonight. They also said that their actions did not prevent any real patients from being tested. We take the accuracy of our reporting very seriously and we are removing the Cherry Health portion from the piece.“
This isn’t the first time the mainstream media has been caught faking a scene for dramatic effect. In 2016, most notably, ABC News was caught staging a crime scene. And of course in 2008, Anderson Cooper was pretending to stand waist deep in water while reporting on Hurricane Ike.
So this isn’t the media’s first fake news rodeo. But thanks to James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, a lot more of their shenanigans will be exposed.
