Twitter Bans Journalist Who Released Undercover Videos Exposing CNN
Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe permanently banned by Big Tech platform
An investigative journalist has been permanently banned from Twitter, shortly after he released bombshell undercover videos exposing CNN's propaganda agenda.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe was blocked by the platform on Thursday after he released his third installment of CNN videos.
Without evidence, Twitter claims that O’Keefe was “violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam.”
“As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” Twitter said in a statement.
O’Keefe immediately released a statement saying that he is filing a lawsuit against the platform, calling their allegations that he was “operating fake accounts” false.
“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said, I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts’,” O’Keefe said.
"This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay," the journalist warned.
“Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me.
"The complaint will be filed Monday.”
Donald Trump Jr. responded to Twitter’s latest crackdown against conservatives by writing on Twitter: “In case you haven’t figured out how it works by now… @CNN spreads propaganda to elect Democrats [and] then @Twitter runs interference to protect CNN.
"They’re all on the same team.”

“After the latest round of hidden camera videos embarrassing to CNN were released, @JamesOKeefeIII has been permanently banned from Twitter,” journalist Andy Ngo wrote on Twitter.
“The @Project_Veritas account was also recently banned.
"This is how big tech works with liberal corporate media to take down challengers.”

O’Keefe released video footage this week of CNN Technical Director Charlie Chester boasting of the network's far-left agenda.
Key points made by Chester were:
- “Look what we did, we [CNN] got Trump out. I am 100% going to say it, and I 100% believe that if it wasn’t for CNN, I don’t know that Trump would have got voted out…I came to CNN because I wanted to be a part of that.”
- “It’s going to be our [CNN’s] focus. Like our focus was to get Trump out of office, right? Without saying it, that’s what it was, right? So, our next thing is going to be climate change awareness.”
- “[Trump’s] hand was shaking or whatever, I think. We brought in so many medical people to tell a story that was all speculation — that he was neurologically damaged, and he was losing it. He’s unfit to — you know, whatever. We were creating a story there that we didn’t know anything about. That’s what — I think that’s propaganda.”
Chester also said that the network’s "reporters" manipulate people into saying what CNN wants them to say.
He said that the network mostly puts people on television who have “a proven track record of taking the bait.”
He went on to suggest that the race of individuals involved in crimes played a part in how much coverage the incident received on the network.
