A special assistant to Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) shared details about an approved list of journalists his office uses to report in ways favorable to the senator.
O'Keefe Media Group, the new organization by former Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe, shared the undercover video of Luke Borwegan.

"I only pick reporters who we know will paint the narrative the way we want," Borwegan said.
"So it's like, when John checks himself in for depression, we tell one reporter in particular, because they will hit the facts that we want them to," he added.
Luke Borwegan, Assistant to John Fetterman:
“He'd be okay with, like, overturning the Second Amendment.”
“I think he would much rather prefer, like, nobody have guns at all.”
And yet people like ME are called threats to democracy.

"He'd be okay with, like, overturning the Second Amendment," Borwegan also said during the video.
"I think he would much rather prefer, like, nobody have guns at all," he added.
The fallout from the video could add to the problems Fetterman is already facing over health-related issues.
Prior to his election to the Senate in 2022, Fetterman had a stroke that kept him from being involved in debates and left him struggling to talk with reporters.
Earlier this year, the senator checked into a hospital for clinical depression where he missed a lengthy time in the Senate following only a month in office. He has now returned to the Senate but has struggled with communications and has often been seen in his trademark hoodies and shorts rather than the usual dress code in the Senate.
The video reveals an inside look at the bias in today's media, showing that some lawmakers only work with journalists who will tell the story they want.
