After stirring the hornet’s nest of the “Ivory Tower” media world, and being attacked regularly for hit, Project Veritas brings you Part V in our series, To Catch a Journalist.
This latest release brings our investigation full circle.
Last month, this series was criticized — before its release — by Sam Stein of the Huffington Post. He assumed we came up empty in our questions posed to a progressive “think tank” in Ohio . . . but we didn’t.
Not only did we expose a “pay-for-play” deal among unions and non-profits where a researcher for a prominent public policy institute was willing to “kill” a study that did not support the goals of a union; but we brought to light a Pulitzer Prize-winning professor who gloated how reporters, particularly Sam Stein, “goes out drinking at night” and when “you get some booze in people and suddenly the stories flow.”
In Part V, we went back to Rutgers University to speak to another professor who was willing to take personal payment – up to $50,000 – to create reports for our union decoy.
This professor, Bruce Baker, stated he would only “ink the deal” after he had a chance to “play with the data first to see if it would undermine.” Ironically, Mr. Baker also serves on the Think Tank Review Panel, a group of researchers that reviews the “validity of assumptions, methodology, results, and strength of links between results and policy recommendations.”
Given that our investigation uncovered two Rutgers University professors who were willing to take part in schemes to provide the education industry with reports that support their financing and goals, we tried to speak with a Rutgers Dean to obtain comment.
Our request didn’t go so well, as you will see . . .
