Last week, the first two videos released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposed how a now apparently former New York Times employee colluded with the biggest players in social media and online video to favor its content over others.
The videos drove a furious Dean Baquet, the paper’s executive editor, to criticize that employee and O’Keefe using, of all things, religious terms — “venial” and “mortal” sins, respectively — rarely used outside of a Catholic church, school, or home.
