O’Keefe confident in Project Veritas lawsuit against mainstream media: we will ‘drop Brian Stelter’


Project Veritas founder and chairman James O’Keefe on Wednesday denounced his investigative journalism organization’s lawsuit against CNN and the New York Times for libel, telling Fox News he was confident in his ability to prove the genuine malice of a CNN presenter – while also alleging “collusion” between the big tech companies and the two left-wing news outlets.

O’Keefe alleged he could prove Ana Cabrera herself was indicted when she cited Project Veritas in a February Twitter comment cracking down on “the spread of disinformation.”

Project Veritas was, in fact, sanctioned for alleged policy violations involving the sharing of private information, an allegation that O’Keefe refuted.

O’Keefe previously announced that he had filed a lawsuit against CNN in Georgia, where its global headquarters are located.

He argues he can prove real nastiness on Cabrera’s part by pointing to a pair of tweets she made three days before quoting a Twitter spokesperson who cited the private information policy that resulted the permanent ban on the Project Veritas account. He also pointed to a CNN.com report that correctly cited the apparent violation of the policy.

O’Keefe noted that Cabrera was speaking with Stelter on air at the time and that the 35-year-old left-wing media guru claimed that Project Veritas “had been engulfed in a Twitter policy by violating several rules on the site “.

On “Fox News Primetime,” O’Keefe told Fox News host Pete Hegseth that Project Veritas has demonstrated, especially in recent times, that the mainstream and big tech media can be held accountable for their irresponsible actions by through libel lawsuits.

“The New York Times lied to us. We sued for libel. We won [against a] New York Supreme Court dismissal motion – a huge historic victory on this motion. And a lot of people come to us, “he said.” They have been lied to and vilified. Every day people in this country are defamed by the media. “

O’Keefe noted that in the Empire State court case against the Times, Project Veritas had rare success in the procedural hurdle before the “ discovery ” – the next exchange of witnesses and evidence before a trial. Normally, he said, media organizations win in their quest to send by “discovery.”

“The collusion between Twitter, Google, Facebook, CNN and the New York Times. So we have to expose it and Project Veritas made the video on [CNN Technical Director], Charlie Chester, claiming his network is propaganda, “added O’Keefe – referring to a damning undercover video in which Chester admitted the network’s hope of seeing President Donald Trump defeated – and CNN Chairman Jeffrey Zucker could call a “rouge phone” to request that data on coronavirus victims be displayed more prominently on the screen to bolster ratings.

“Twitter has banned us from reporting what he said. But I don’t think we can lose if we retaliate, go on the offensive and have the courage to stay offensive – so we sued the New York Times, we are suing CNN. We are suing Twitter and just launched a new initiative to represent others to sue for libel. “

O’Keefe vowed to see New York Times reporters “sworn in” – despite the newspaper’s legal motion, they were simply expressing an opinion. He noted, however, that Facebook summarily relied on this “ opinion ” as the basis for fact-checking videos of other people posted on the social media platform.

“There’s that oligarchy out there – a connection – and we’re going to pass the dismissal motion in the CNN lawsuit – and remove Ana Cabrera and Brian Stelter at CNN.”

In Project Veritas’ lawsuit against The Times, New York State Supreme Court Judge Charles Wood dismissed the Times Square-based media’s motion to dismiss over their description of O coverage. ‘Keefe of alleged voter fraud in Representative Ilhan Omar, D-Minn’s, District of Minneapolis.

Times reporters Maggie Astor and Tiffany Hsu described Project Veritas reports as “misleading”, “false” and “without verifiable evidence.”

“The facts submitted by Veritas could point to more than standard media bias about garden varieties and support a plausible inference of actual wickedness,” Wood wrote in his March ruling.
