Video released on Tuesday shows that a man identified as the special assistant of Democratic Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman, told an undercover journalist the office had a list “puppet reporters” who would cover the campaign narrative.
O’Keefe Media Group (the new outlet of Project Veritas’ founder James O’Keefe), released video footage of Fetterman’s special assistant Luke Borwegan. He claimed that the office approved of certain journalists, such as MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough and “Pod Save America’s” hosts, along with former New York Times journalist Kara Swisher. These journalists would purportedly be covering the narrative staffers wish to push.
Borwegan, in a video by O’Keefe Media Group, said: “I’ve got to fucking force-arm these reporters, and that’s my job. But there’s just so many of them.” It’s important to maintain a positive relationship with reporters, even if we don’t like them. Our press operation is a work of art. We can tell reporters to fuck off, but they won’t listen, because we need them more than they do. Everyone wants to hear a story about John Fetterman, but we only share it with certain people.
He continued, “I choose reporters that we know will portray the narrative in the way we desire.” “So, for example, when John is diagnosed with depression, we will tell a reporter because he will give us the facts we want.”
Borwegan stated that they allowed Scarborough to interview Fetterman but that he is “sucky”. He also said Fetterman conducted an interview for “Pod Save America”, after the interview Scarborough, and the podcast, which was hosted by former Obama aides covered the narrative of the office. Borwegan said that Fetterman’s office also permitted Time Magazine to conduct a interview.
Borwegan stated, “They are just puppets.”
The video shows that he added Fetterman likely would support “overturning” the Second Amendment and prefers no American to own a firearm at all.
The Daily Caller did not receive a response from Fetterman’s Office by the publication date.
