Project Veritas Sues New York Times for Calling Group 'Deceptive'

•, Adam Klasfeld

"The Times' newsroom was incensed at what it viewed as Project Veritas stealing its thunder," the outfit insisted in a 73-page complaint filed Friday in Westchester County Supreme Court.

The lawsuit takes aim at journalist Maggie Astor's article in the Times on Sept. 29 titled "Project Veritas Video Was a 'Coordinated Disinformation Campaign,' Researchers Say," reporting that Stanford University and the University of Washington researchers found that the group's video accusing Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) of voter fraud was a "concerted disinformation campaign."

Researchers at those elite academic institutions reached the conclusions that the Times reported.
