The level of protection Twitter & Facebook have must end after James O’Keefe banning!
Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN.
Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter.
On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.”
“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,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News.
O’Keefe categorically denied Twitter’s assertions, telling Fox News that he vows to sue the tech giant for defamation.
Twitter declined to comment when asked what fake accounts O’Keefe allegedly used. The company also did not respond to requests for comment on O’Keefe’s pending lawsuit.
Critics, however, were not buying Twitter’s “fake accounts” accusation.
