Project Veritas published this video about voter fraud in Minneapolis:

Afterward, the New York Times published a news article, which refers to the video as “deceptive.”

You can read the New York Times article at this link:

Project Veritas then sued the New York Time for defamation.

The New York Times tried to get the lawsuit dismissed by claiming that the writer was expressing her opinion, and that it was not a statement of fact.

However, The New York State Supreme Court ruled that because the New York Times accusation of deception was in a news article, and not an opinion column, the lawsuit can proceed.

Now, in order to defend itself, the New York Times must prove that the video is deceptive.

And here’s an article about the court’s ruling:

I’m no legal expert. But I am curious to see what the New York Times will do in order to prove that the video is deceptive.
