Project Veritas Exposes Hollywood Hypocrisy: Lefty Actors Accept Dirty Mideast Oil Money For Anti-Fracking Film

okeefe

James O’Keefe has done it again. This time he dove into perhaps the most influential bastion of progressive power – Hollywood –  and exposed the dark and slimy underbelly behind their anti-fracking machine.

O’Keefe, (pictured above) premiered “Hollywood’s War on US Energy” to a packed room at the Cannes Film Festival, earlier today.

Via Project Veritas:

In the investigation, an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posed as a member of a Middle Eastern oil dynasty and offered $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.

In video from a meeting with Ed Begley Jr., Mariel Hemingway and Josh Tickell, a Project Veritas investigator disguised as “Muhammed” offered $9 million for an anti-fracking film. “Muhammad” clearly states: “If Washington DC continues fracking, America will be energy efficient, and then they won’t need my oil anymore.”

In the same conversation, Begley and Hemingway accept the funding and agree to hide the source of funds for the anti-fracking movie. Hemingway agreeing that those who will know the source of the funding are “only at this table.”

Ed Begley Jr. is an outspoken environmental activist and current Governor on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science (the organization that brings us the OSCARS every year.)

Mariel Hemingway is a Golden Globe- and Oscar-nominated actress.

Josh Tickell is a Sundance Film Festival Winner and the director of environmental message movies “Fuel”, “The Big Fix” and “PUMP”.

Team Begley even submitted a video of Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo offering his unwavering support for the fictitious anti-fracking film project.

The meeting came about after a series of discussions with Josh and Rebecca Tickell. A Project Veritas journalist posed as an ad executive seeking to broker a deal for his client (“Muhammed”) to fund an American-made anti-fracking film.

This is so hilarious. Anyone with any sense already knew that Ed Begley Jr was a giant pretentious, phony poser. This O’Keefe sting proves it – and discredits the whole Hollywood anti-fracking franchise.

The only hitch is — most of the fellow-traveling MSM are as dishonest and corrupt as they are. Will anyone outside Fox News report on this?

The Hollywood Reporter already has.

Via Big Hollywood: the hypocritical movie makers are already defending their intentions to create an anti-fracking film funded by Middle Eastern oil interests.  Ed Begley Jr argues that there’s nothing wrong with taking Middle Eastern oil money (strongly suspect he’s done it before) because he’s spent his whole sainted life fighting against Middle Eastern oil. And he takes a swipe at O’Keefe (and by extension a large percentage of Americans who drive big cars) for driving “gas guzzlers.” We should be more like the blameless Ed Begley Jr. who rides his bike and drives an electric car, everywhere.

In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, Begely defended Tickell’s actions.

“I don’t think it’s bad Josh Tickell is taking money from some Arab guy. It’s much better than giving money to Middle East oil, which I’ve spent my whole life against,” he said. “Think about it. My electric car. My bicycle. How much foreign oil is there in that? Unlike these James O’Keefe characters who ride around in gas guzzlers, I’ve given no money to foreign oil.”

What a doosh.

More reaction from Begley via HR: – he’s totally innocent because he’s hard of hearing and didn’t even hear what was being said, you guyz!!1!

Begley tells THR that if it looks like he’s agreeing with faux Muhammad about anything, it’s because the Tickells asked him to be polite so that they’d get their funding for a movie they’re making calledFracked, a film that will argue a technique for extracting natural gas called fracking is bad for the environment. Also, Begley says that he is hard of hearing and couldn’t understand everything Muhammad was saying.

“Smoke and mirrors…”

These slimeballs and their managers are fuming – threatening legal action – but check the comments at The Hollywood Reporter – they’re cheering on James O’Keefe.

    Howie Kurtz { who I can’t stand } was on Meghan Kelly last night and they were discussing this latest video from Veritas and O’Keefe. When he was asked what he thought about it, he responded {something like, I don’t remember the actual wording} I know, James and he “considers” himself a journalist and he feels like he has this mission to expose liberal hypocrisy where ever he finds it. I’ve always questioned his “tactics” of hidden cameras and taping the unsuspected people he goes after.

    Oh, really Howie you dope! Never heard of undercover investigative journalism that has been used by your cohorts for decades exposing what they considered criminal activity? O’Keefe exposed another sanctimonious dopey lib without even trying.

    Fox has managed to destroy at least two hours of programming on Sunday mornings, with the addition of Howie, his partner and platter lips.

    Wait a minnit here. . . . .

    Isn’t this the same Beverly Hills Hotel that the Sultan of Brunei owns. You know the one that is on the dopey lib “hit list” and is being picketed because of Sharia Law and a War on Women?

    Yep, I thought so! They have absolutely no shame.
