WOW: You can’t make this up. Twitter actually suspended Project Veritas & @JamesOKeefeIII for exposing political bias & fear mongering tools at CNN. This is a move of blatant partisan censorship. Someone at CNN straight up called Dorsey to shut down a conservative reporter.— Blair Brandt (@BlairBrandt) April 15, 2021
The lawsuit was set in motion after O’Keefe’s personal account — with nearly one million followers — received a permanent ban from Twitter, for operating “fake accounts.”
The ban was issued almost immediately following Veritas’ release of Bombshell undercover CNN videos, where Technical Director Charlie Chester calls the network “propaganda” and admits to using “fear” as a way to drive viewership.
Twitter’s accusation of operating fake accounts was immediately challenged by O’Keefe, who maintains he has never done so.
