NYT urges no restain on covering Project Veritas The New York Times urged a judge to restore what it called its constitutionally-protected freedom to cover the conservative activist group Project Veritas, on the eve of a hearing on a rare attempt to block news coverage by major media.

Project Veritas' claims "do not implicate the kind of extraordinary public harms, such as national security, that American courts have suggested might rarely justify a prior restraint," the Times' lawyers said in a Monday court filing.

The newspaper also accused Project Veritas of trying to "silence critical reporting," despite First Amendment guarantees, while it pursues a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper.
