Political journalist James O'Keefe threatened to release videos "exposing" media outlet CNN.
He released part one while streaming live on Periscope.
Most outlets are calling the 119 hours of audio lackluster at best.
The Washington Post says,
"For one thing, the recordings are from 2009, so anyone looking for evidence of journalistic malfeasance during the recent presidential campaign (or, for that matter, the one before that) won't find any here."
Politico says the leaks "fall flat".
And how about the network at the center of this?
A CNN spokesperson says
"I don't think there's anything to comment on."
The audio was recorded and provided to O’Keefe’s website, Project Veritas, by an unidentified source.
O'Keefe is also offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who brings him evidence of “corruption, malfeasance and wrongdoing” in the press.
O'Keefe is promising more audio is to come.
