After exposing CNN media manipulation, James O’Keefe banned from Twitter


James O’Keefe, head of Project Veritas has been banned from Twitter one day after posting a bombshell video with CNN producer Charlie Chester. Chester admitted the network was rooting for COVID-19 deaths, pushing political agendas in their news stories, worked against former President Donald J Trump and is artificially inflating the scandal involving U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz.

Twitter claims O’Keefe’s ban was not related to the CNN story, but that the journalist held multiple Twitter accounts in violation of their terms of service.

In the video released by O’Keefe this week, Chester met with a woman and thought he was on a blind date arranged through the dating app Tinder. Instead, his date was recording him as he bragged to her about how the network intentionally manipulates the masses through Democrat propaganda packaged as news.

Chester admitted marching orders to turn the network into a politically charged weapon for Democrats came from the top, CEO Jeff Zucker.

O’Keefe denied the allegation and said he will be suing Twitter.

“I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts,'” O’Keefe said in a statement. “This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.”

This comes only months after Twitter suspended the accounts of both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action. This also comes at a time when O’Keefe’s account was on the verge of reaching 1,000,000 followers. 

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed O’Keefe has been permanently banned “for violating the Twitter Rules on platform manipulation and spam.”

A Twitter spokesperson pointed us to a section in the company’s rules which state: “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.”
