FACTS

    James O’Keefe, founder of non-profit undercover journalism organization Project Veritas, had his Twitter account permanently suspended for what the company said was “violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam.” The move follows O’Keefe’s exposé of a CNN director who is recorded admitting to CNN’s production of what he called “propaganda.” He stated that this includes the network’s recent coverage of “unproven allegations” regarding Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), whom he called a “problem for the Democrats.” The CNN director, Charlie Chester, also told his “date,” a Project Veritas team member, that the network regularly hypes Covid numbers and heavies in on fear tactics to increase ratings and “drive numbers.”

    O’Keefe announced that he is suing the company in response to his account’s suspension. “I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts.’ This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay.”

    LEFT

    The Left supports the move. The Daily Beast‘s contributing editor Justin Baragona linked the Twitter policy O’Keefe supposedly violated and wrote, “So it appears O’Keefe was involved in sock puppet accounts or something of that nature.”

    Not sure what’s more hilarious…That James O’Keefe got suspended from Twitter, or that he’s threatening to sue. Like bro…They’re a private company who can do whatever the f*** they want with their platform.”

    RIGHT

    The Right strongly condemns Twitter’s move. Political commentator and media host Ben Shapiro tweeted, “So Twitter has banned James O’Keefe for reporting on CNN by using long-utilized undercover techniques…This isn’t about barring methods. It’s about barring content.” Conservative media company PragerU wrote, “James O’Keefe and Project Veritas got a CNN director admitting on camera what most people already knew...and Twitter banned him for it. Wake up.”

    “This is pure censorship for political reasons because he has successfully exposed CNN, the media and Democrats. This is insanity.”

    Robby Starbuck, conservative producer and director

    Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows stated, “They’re censoring conservatives. They’ve shown it repeatedly.” Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza argued that the move “exposes the totalitarian mindset that now governs Twitter. This platform has become an official organ of left-wing propaganda.”
