Conservative activist James O’Keefe founded Project Veritas to uncover the news that the liberal mainstream media considered unimportant or better left unsaid.
His most recent work was apparently too much for Twitter.
A PV reporter confronted Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president over integrity, about a leaked internal call in which Rosen discussed an algorithm “that is able to freeze commenting on threads in cases where our systems are detecting that there may be a thread that has hate speech or violence,” according to The Washington Times.
Conservatives have long complained about Big Tech shutting down content over a flexible definition of “hate speech.”
PV attempted to get Rosen to explain the comment. During a video, which lasted less than a minute, Rosen’s house number is shown, although nothing identified his street, city, state, or ZIP code.
Nonetheless, on Feb. 11, Twitter permanently suspended Project Veritas’s account, which had 733,000 followers, for violating its rules protecting privacy – even after PV deleted the video featuring Rosen.
