CANNES -- In a blockbuster new video, Project Veritas has exposed the truth about the dark funding behind Hollywood's anti-fracking messaging machine.
New York Times Bestselling Author and Project Veritas founder and president James O'Keefe debuted the latest investigation at a "premiere" in Cannes, France on Wednesday.
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."

Love it !
Yes, because the vast majority of Americans are totally clueless about this.
I have not seen the video, but I can already hear the Hollywood response!
Their spin-meister PR masters will say that they were not worried about the Washington, D.C./oil efficiency aspects - no, no, they just hate fracking because it is so evil and dirty and bad for the environment!
The worst part, most of the low information voters won’t even listen to the video, but will take the Hollywood PR response as GOSPEL!
We don’t need the film, but the LIVs do.
the EPA has undertaken serious investigation of the potential negative side effects of fracing... and have not uncovered one... not even one instance of contaminated groundwater...
Both Mariel Hemingway and Ed Begley are claiming they knew it was a fake Saudi all along. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Hollywood attempting to make America defenseless. What a country!
Wow! What a bunch of low life scum bags. They would sell their country down the tubes for a few bucks. They are nothing but traitors. No wonder the regime is in bed with them.
I could totally see Sean Penn or George Clooney accepting funding to make a propaganfor piece for Communism for Obama without so much as a second thought...
And there you have it! Now we know why they are so against fracking, and it is exactly as conservatives have been saying all along.
The OPEC states DO NOT WANT the USA to become energy independant from them.
So lets keep buying oil from countries that hate us and use our money to fund terrorists.
Ed Begley Jr. is a nut job. I saw his show where he accepted every FREE solar or windmill or electric device to promote and he turns around says how we need to use electric cars and solar. He pays not 1 dime.
BTW how did he get to France? Did he ride his bicycle over the ocean on pontoons?
Ed Begley’s statements about Hollywood being all smoke and mirrors is very telling about their complicity in the deception and brainwashing of the “common folk” in America for FedGov. Hemingway’s statement about what they are talking about being confined to the table shows me how much of a disgusting and low-life she really is. I hope the video goes hyper viral and destroys her career after hearing her comments. It should.
The entertainment industry has long been bribed by communists and other enemies of the USA.
Enemies know it is the easiest and cheapest way to feed propaganda to the majority of Americans (who don’t even watch news anymore). Ever since TV became common, the media has completely driven the culture of this nation. It has been a continuous cycle of dumbing down and BS since around 1960.
The only thing slowing them down is the internet and they are desperately trying to kill that too.
There you go, trying to use facts to make an argument against liberals!
You like the challenge of facing an impossible task - don’t you? LOL!
You can see the hidden glee in Rebecca Tickell’s eyes as she thinks about the money they will make and the liberal delight at stabbing America in the back to help a foreign government. What a truly disgusting creature she is...
If you knew someone was trying to “play you,” wouldn’t you just walk out? Or at least call them out?
BS! $9 million was the reason they stayed - PERIOD!
Boy, watching that investigation really made me want to punch a bunch of people in the face.
Well, most in the entertainment industry have already sold-out their own soul. Naturally, it is a good place for our enemies to find traitors.
> There you go, trying to use facts to make an argument against liberals!
You like the challenge of facing an impossible task - dont you? LOL!
First of all, liberals are too gullible and stupid to know they’re being manipulated because they’re “like college educated and stuff you know”
Did you hear her voice when the 2nd 4.5 million was mentioned? If it was on Skype you would have seen her "O" face.
This one made my day! That smug Begley caught with his pants down is priceless!
Ed Begley Jr ,I thought he died when his Electric car ran out of power and Eds head exploded
> Did you hear her voice when the 2nd 4.5 million was mentioned? If it was on Skype you would have seen her “O” face.
And the liberals say the old white conservatives are all about the money but it sure doesn’t seem that way. They seem to get far more excited about getting it. Stands to reason that they get to keep theirs while us useless Tea Party Christians foot the bill to keep FedGov operating by having all of our funds “redistributed” to liberal low-lifes and their constituents.

I think Rebecca Tickwell had several orgasms when the amount if money was mentioned...
O’Keefe does excellent work, but this is one ‘gotcha’ I just don’t see the importance of. It’s not like American doesn’t already know who and what these people are. They have zero credibility already.
I really hope James focus’ next effort is on the real problems facing us, not the loony leftists who blow money on BS in Hollywood.
Are any of us surprised? NO!
I agree. Although I'm a highly-trained graduate of FReeper University I read and re-read and still can't quite grasp what the frack it's all about in relation to the guy on the street who can't find a job or the mom trying desperately to stretch her food budget money.
I'm afraid that this is one of O'Keefe's catches that isn't going to grow legs....in Hollywood or anywhere else, for that matter.
Watching the dem/libs since JFK, my take is they feel entitled to pad their personal wealth with public money, using these “do gooder” programs as a cover and as a vehicle to the Treasury. They know without any doubt that when they get their fill and we finally kick em out, the Republicans will find a way to right the ship and rebuild the Treasury, ready for the next lib turn at the helm to repeat the same process again and again.
These liberals obviously subscribe to the Arab maxim “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Too bad that their enemy is their own country and its poorer citizens who won’t be able to make Cannes this year.
Absolutely! They’re so stupid they think we’ll buy that?
Begley’s a bum. An anti-American bum. He’s got his and the rest of us can go to hell.
Which aspect of it do you think is its weakest message?
That Hollywood celebrities who claim to be working for a better earth would secretly accept money from a foreign nation that has historically been the supplier of much of the worlds oil?
Or that the supplier of much of the world's oil is willing to pay millions of dollars to liberals to make false claims regarding capitalist enterprises in the U.S.?
There are millions of "independent" voters who just might be upset with this duplicity and change their voting habits, perhaps for life. If they don't, then we are doomed anyway.
If they do, then perhaps we can turn things around.
Whichever occurs, it will not be the fault of the message or the messenger. The truth is there for those who wish to see.
