The website is accurately described as a media company because its authors refuse to call it a “news organization,” explained senior Lincoln Project member Stuart Stevens, according to Axios. Stevens claimed that the project refuses to accept the journalistic burden of objectivity, or in his words, “to tell both sides of a lie.”
The biased media company apparently sees itself as a cure for the “deplorables” and “bitter clingers.” Stevens whined that, “There’s a world of people who have spent the last six to seven years screaming at their television and watching this poison,” and claimed that his new media company “is the answer.”
“We’re going to proudly declare we’re all bias, all the time,” he said, boasting that, “One of the slogans we’re using is, ‘We’re right, they’re wrong.'”
Unfortunately, a show of honesty is hard to believe from these sources.
Further, The Lincoln project is also known for its lies and distortions. The organization admitted to planting “white supremacist impersonators” at a mainstream Virginia political event, according to Forbes.
The Lincoln project has also demonstrated itself untrustworthy by covering for the predatory homosexual behaviors of John Weaver, one of the group’s founders.
According to the New York Times, 25 men reported being sexually harassed, with one confirmed victim who was 14-years-old at the time of Weaver’s harassment. The behavior was brought to the attention of the Lincoln Project months before the crisis was publicly known.
Despite prior knowledge, the Lincoln project severed ties and denounced Weaver only after his behavior was publicly known, according to the Daily Mail.
