Description

Project Veritas undercover journalists met with Academy Award Governor Ed Begley Jr., Academy Award nominated actress Mariel Hemingway, and Sundance Award Winning Producer Josh Tickell at the Beverley Hills Hotel to discuss funding for an anti-fracking film to the tune of 9 million dollars. The three members of Hollywood’s vanguard thought they were meeting with a man named “Mohammed” whom they believed to be the son of a Middle Eastern oil family dynasty, however, they were actually meeting with an undercover journalist of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. Hemingway makes clear to our undercover journalist that knowing where the money comes from “is only at this table.” And Begley Jr. adds “No, no absolutely, I would never say that.” Begley Jr. adds “Washington and Hollywood are a lot alike; illusions, special effects, smoke and mirrors.” On a subsequent call to Josh Tickell while discussing the anonymity of the purported deal, Tickell was caught by our undercover journalist saying: “We’re confident that we can keep this zip locked, you know tight, tight, air tight forever. If we don’t protect – who is kind of funding this thing. If we have to disclose that or that becomes a necessary part of it the whole enterprise will not work.”
