CNN Threatens Legal Action After Project Veritas Records Internal Conference Calls

The ‘worldwide leader in news’ was highly annoyed.

Undercover investigators with Project Veritas have long been the scourge of some of the world’s most gargantuan corporations, thanks to their willingness to record and release footage of employees at said companies saying some terribly off-brand things.

The James O’Keefe-led brand has been focused on the mainstream media as of late, working to extract juicy nuggets of controversy from employees at Google, Twitter, and even some who operate in the political realm…including the DNC.

This week, O’Keefe teased the release of several tapes made during internal CNN conference calls that the investigator was somehow given access to.  This irked CNN greatly.

CNN’s public communications department replied to James O’Keefe on Twitter, warning him that his secret recording and planned release of some of the network’s internal editorial calls could have broken the law — and that the company has notified law enforcement.

On Tuesday morning, O’Keefe posted a Tweet that previewed an upcoming release of a recording of an editorial call between CNN President Jeff Zucker and his network’s senior leadership.

More than seven hours later, in that Tweet’s replies, the CNN PR account responded: “Legal experts say this may be a felony. We’ve referred it to law enforcement.”

O’Keefe has a record of avoiding running afoul of the law, making this latest threat by CNN far less menacing than it sounds.
