The world’s most powerful tech companies are retaliating against Project Veritas, colluding to blacklist the investigative watchdog off the internet after the group exposed the extent Google executives are deliberately suppressing conservative content to rig U.S. elections.
Vimeo is the latest tech giant to ban Project Veritas, Veritas founder James O’Keefe announced Thursday evening. According to O’Keefe, Vimeo said the investigative group’s videos are “hateful, defamatory, or discriminatory.”
“Perhaps we embarrassed Google,” Project Veritas fired back, warning, “they’re trying to erase us from the internet.”
Vimeo’s ban is a retributive response to powerful undercover footage and internal documents Project Veritas released Monday revealing Google’s liberal “Machine Learning Fairness” program. The video featured a Google executive admitting the company uses algorithms to enforce “fairness” because it is entirely devoted to preventing Trump or anyone like the president from ever winning elections again.
The executive, Jen Gennai, also suggested that Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) plan to break up Google is misguided because only Google has the power to prevent “the next Trump situation.”
Social media site Reddit, which proclaims itself as the “Front page of the Internet,” banned Project Veritas’ account after the organization attempted to post a link to their Google whistleblower story.
Google-owned video hosting platform, YouTube, then removed the Google expose.
It’s investigation of Google is one of multiple bombshell reports unveiled by Project Veritas on big tech this month, which has resulted in Silicon Valley’s cyber police taking measures to censor the investigate group off the internet.
Earlier this month, Project Veritas obtained internal documents from a Pinterest insider which proved the social media platform censored the pro-life website, LiveAction.org, as “pornography” and Bible verses to a “sensitive terms” list. Veritas’ investigative report also included video testimony featuring the whistleblower.
Hours after Project Veritas published its video with the whistleblower, YouTube removed the video.
The tech industry holds left-leaning outlets to a different standard, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said in a statement after his video was taken down.
“The established media and technology are so afraid of investigative journalism they need to censor it. YouTube calls REPORTING on someone by showing their face and name, and how they added a pro-life group to a porn blacklist, a ‘privacy complaint,’” he said. “Would they do this to NYT?”
Project Veritas’ Twitter account also temporarily suspended from the platform for publishing the exposé.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) cross-examined Google representative Maggie Stanphill during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing Tuesday, as the tech executive claimed to she was completely unaware Project Veritas reports and denied Google employs algorithms to manipulate public discourse.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) also denounced Facebook and Google for endangering conservative commentators by labeling them as “nazis” during a Homeland Security Committee hearing on Wednesday.
“[Leaked emails from Google show] that labeling mainstream conservative media as Nazis is a premise upon which [Google] operate,” Crenshaw said.
