Project Veritas was banned in 2021 after multiple exposés embarrassing establishment institutions, including media companies like CNN and tech companies like Twitter.
Veritas undercover reporters used in 2018 to film many Twitter employees confessing to anti-conservative bias. One admitted that he classified discussion. “god, guns and America”As bot-like behavior.
“Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and the cross,”According to the employee. “Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.”
Another employee admitted to using algorithms to suppress large numbers of accounts, which is a practice that has since been widely recognized. “Yeah. You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you’ve got to, like, write algorithms that do it for you.”
Project Veritas is being restored as many prominent conservative accounts are now back on Twitter. Its new owner SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and Tesla CEO Elon Musk have promised that the platform will return to its freedom-of-speech roots.
Musk began his restoration of accounts for Jordan Peterson (satirical conservative site The Babylon Bee) and Jordan Peterson.
