After Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe released a series of undercover videos on CNN this week, Twitter has responded by banning his account, and has stated the ban is permanent.
The Washington Times quoted a Twitter spokesperson as saying the company’s policies prevent users from “mislead[ing] others on Twitter by operating fake accounts” and stop users from artificially amplifying or disrupting conversations through the use of multiple accounts.
O’Keefe says he is filing a lawsuit against Twitter, and released the following statement: “I am suing Twitter for defamation because they said I, James O’Keefe, ‘operated fake accounts. This is false, this is defamatory, and they will pay. Section 230 may have protected them before, but it will not protect them from me. The complaint will be filed Monday.”

Below are the three videos O’Keefe has released this week featuring CNN technical director Charlie Chester.
PART 3 – Released on Thursday, April 15: Chester Says CNN ‘Trying To Help’ Black Lives Matter By Protecting Group’s Narrative On Race
Chester admits that CNN doesn’t give as much coverage to a mass shooting if the gunman is not white. He also admits that the “optics are not good” in incidents where blacks are attacking Asian-Americans, because CNN is “trying to help BLM.”
PART 2 – Released Wednesday, April 14: CNN Director Reveals That Network Practices ‘Art of Manipulation’ to ‘Change The World’
Chester touts that the higher the death toll with Covid, the better their ratings. “Let’s make it higher,” he brags.
PART 1 – Released Tuesday, April 13: CNN Director ADMITS Network Engaged in ‘Propaganda’ to Remove Trump from Presidency
Chester brags that their “propaganda” attacks against Trump helped oust him from the White House.

O’Keefe also shared the following video on Tuesday, of the moment he confronted Chester and let him know he had been speaking with their undercover journalist.
CPAC 2021 shared a video message from O’Keefe Thursday afternoon:
Twitter is suppressing James O’Keefe’s voice and product that exposes how Big Media makes editorial decisions.
CPAC and conservatives still believe in #FreedomOfSpeech

Conservatives are voicing their outrage over Twitter suspending O’Keefe’s account:
Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza wrote, “The suspension of James O’Keefe only exposes the totalitarian mindset that now governs Twitter. This platform has become an official organ of left-wing propaganda. There is no open public forum in America now—until we build a new one!”

“Twitter will rue the day they went after James O’Keefe,” one person wrote.

Twitter just suspended James O’Keefe, for acting well within the bounds of the law in exposing media bias and corruption.

O’Keefe exposes CNN for lying about me and Donald Trump for propaganda.

One Twitter user defiantly posted a clip from one of O’Keefe’s videos, and wrote, “Since James O’Keefe has been suspended from Twitter, here’s the only part of the interview you need to see.” It is a video of CNN admitting it would be help to the Democrats to get Rep. Matt Gaetz out.

“In the first [Project Veritas] video, Chester admits that CNN’s negative coverage of unproven allegations against Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is ‘propaganda’ because Gaetz is a ‘problem for the Democrats.'”https://t.co/b7MGnacGqL

Incredibly sad to see @Twitter ban O’Keefe & his organization this afternoon. This will increase a mass exodus of political users of ALL political parties as new competitors launch. PLEASE rethink this strategy.
