Undercover journalism operation Project Veritas has filed a defamation lawsuit against liberal news network CNN and anchor Ana Cabrera. After Twitter permanently banned the Project veritas account from the platform for sharing “private information” without consent Ana Cabera claimed the ban was part of the platform’s crackdown on “misinformation.”
The Daily Wire reports:
“Cabrera had knowledge of Twitter’s original reasoning for banning Veritas before she went on air and acted with malice when she said the de-platforming was part of a crackdown on those ‘promoting misinformation,’” Project Veritas contended Monday.
The group noted that Cabrera, days earlier, “had tweeted that the ban was in fact for an alleged violation of Twitter’s privacy policies – not for misinformation as Cabrera stated.”
Big Tech’s targeting of Project Veritas has only continued. O’Keefe’s personal Twitter account was banned earlier this month, the same week the organization released more damaging footage to CNN.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe also filed a lawsuit against Twitter last week.
The ban and lawsuit came after Project Veritas released undercover footage of a CNN employee saying the platform worked to sway the 2020 election. Recently, popular podcast host Joe Rogan praised Project Veritas for exposing CNN for its lack of ethics behind its so-called journalism.
