Twitter censored a clip showing its executives testify before Congress uploaded by Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe this morning in an action usually taken against videos violating copyright law, in spite of it being in the public domain.
The video featured Republican Sen. Ted Cruz questioning Twitter executives about undercover video recorded by Project Veritas. O’Keefe’s overlayed the undercover video alongside Cruz’s questioning and the executive’s response.
“The irony,” wrote O’Keefe, “Somehow a video of Twitter exec testifying that they don’t shadow ban in a Senate hearing was DELETED from our post.”
“It was a public testimony, watched by thousands.”
O’Keefe rhetorically wondered on what grounds Twitter would take down such a video.
For those curious, the video is still on YouTube! https://t.co/ip7BchEeiV

In the undercover video, a man identified as a Twitter employee discussed how the platform censors conservative users, telling the reporter “You look for Trump, or America, and you have like five thousand keywords to describe a redneck,” the employee explained. “The majority of the [machine learning algorithms] are for Republicans.”
In the Congressional hearing, the Twitter executive maintained that the employee’s statement was untrue.
The censored video is still available on YouTube.
Project Veritas has a long track record of having its undercover videos proven accurate. Nearly two years ago, one of its reporters had a candid conversation with CNN reporter Van Jones in which he described Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion as a “nothing burger,” which was ultimately proven true this year when the investigation concluded with no indictments or accusations of wrongdoing.
Last month, O’Keefe and Jones shared an exchange during CPAC, in which Jones claimed he was taken out of context in the original video.
Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election
They fear Tucker Carlson.
Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.
Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.
Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”
Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.
Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.
Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
