Project Veritas and founder James O’Keefe were back at it Tuesday, exposing social network Pinterest for censoring Live Action, a prominent pro-life organization.
“Leaked Pinterest ‘Sensitive Terms List’ includes ‘bible verses’ and ‘christian easter,’ Inside explains search term ‘christian’ won’t auto-complete, others can’t trend, no notifications, or recommendations,” Project Veritas said on Twitter, attaching a video.

According to Project Veritas, the documents they obtained were handed over by a “Pinterest insider.”
The social network reportedly classified Live Action as “pornography,” which is banned from the platform, in order to censor their content:

In response to the report, Pinterest then banned Live Action outrightly, only to re-instate the group’s page later. However, it is still classified as “pornography.”
NEW>> For all of you following at home:
Sunday: @LiveAction is on @Pinterest porn domain block list
Monday: Live Action is removed
This morning: Live Action is permanently de-platformed
NOW: Live Action is back on the porn domain block list!

Further documents published by Project Veritas show an employee calling right-wing pundit Ben Shapiro a “white supremacist,” and putting listing Candace Owens alongside him as “ones to watch for content.”
“Ben Shapiro is a white supremacist who has regularly spewed anti muslim hate and he and candace owens and few others may be ones to watch content for over the next few days,” a post from an internal Slack chat said.
“I reported all the top instances of his “Myth of the tiny radical muslim” video from youtube that a number of journalists have been calling out,” the post continued. “There will no doubt be people searching for his content across platforms. I’ll start putting together a list of things like this video of his that may be worth creating an advisor for (though not blocking results).
It appears that another social network is taking cues from the leftist activists masquerading as journalists in the mainstream press.
Last week, Vox “reporter” Carlos Maza lobbied YouTube to ban right-wing pundit Steven Crowder because Maza was offended that Crowder was making fun of him. The week-long effort resulted in the demonetization of Crowder’s channel for a short period of time.
Sunday, Facebook banned Natural News after The Daily Beast wrote a hit piece on the website, comparing it to also-banned InfoWars and claiming that the site was spreading conspiracy theories.

Twitter Suspending Bloomberg Bots for Coordinated Fake Engagement
The Bloomberg campaign is taking a page from the strategy of supposed Russian bots.
Twitter began suspending more than 70 pro-Michael Bloomberg accounts from its platform on Friday, citing supposed inauthentic and coordinated behavior.
The platform was alerted to the suspicious behavior by the Los Angeles Times, and shortly after began suspending the accounts.
The reports of the Bloomberg bots are reminiscent of the claims of Russian bots waging influence campaigns in U.S elections. Both operations apparently involve scripted messaging, fake political engagement, and platform manipulation.
Evidence of identical messaging being spread by dubious pro-Bloomberg accounts was published by the Los Angeles Times in their report on the matter Friday.
A statement from Twitter on the suspensions confirmed the Bloomberg shill accounts violated the platform’s rules by “creating multiple accounts to post duplicative content” and “coordinating with or compensating others to engage in artificial engagement or amplification, even if the people involved use only one account.”
The accounts avoid direct connections to the Bloomberg campaign, in an attempt to avoid being identified as coordinated shill accounts.
Bloomberg is paying a considerable cohort of “deputy field organizers” $2,500 a month to shill for the New York oligarch on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. The messaging strategy is relatively unprecedented in American politics, offering cash directly for a constant stream of political messaging on personal social media accounts.
The Bloomberg campaign claims that paid deputy field organizers are required to identify their affiliation with the campaign in a statement regarding the suspensions. As Bloomberg’s online social media strategy copies a page from the book of supposed malicious Russian bots, high-ranking U.S intelligence community personnel are claiming that the Russian bots are active once again in attempts to promote the campaigns of both Bernie Sanders and President Donald Trump.
