A new undercover video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas in a series targeting establishment-media bias features a longtime New York Times employee confessing his coworkers hate Trump “like the plague, dude.”
It’s the fourth video on the Times in Project Veritas’ American Pravda series. The third showed London-based editor Desiree Shoe blasting Trump as an “oblivious idiot” and attacking Vice President Pence as “horrible” because of his religion. Shoe confessed that her colleagues hoped their reporting would influence people not to vote for Trump.

The newest video features Todd Gordon, an IT consultant for the Times for 20 years.
He explains the anti-Trump sentiment is a cultural belief shared by all workers at the paper.
Asked whether anyone at the Times liked Trump, he said, “No, no, no. … Not one person. … Everyone hates him. They hate him like the plague, dude.”
And he said it’s impossible for the Times to be impartial.
Asked whether the newspaper reports on Trump unfairly, he said, “Unfairly, yes. I agree 100 percent. They unfairly report on him.”
He points out that a “lack of sourcing” affects the newspaper’s coverage of Washington.
“Right; it’s all been heresay. Maybe he did this, maybe he did that. You’re right, 100 percent. They haven’t been able to prove it,” he said.
“And they’re like, grab that heresay, and let’s put it out there.”
