Undercover Journalist SUSPENDED on Twitter for Correcting Mainstream Mistake

The truth is out there, as they say, but Twitter would prefer that we don’t know it. 

Is the truth no longer objective?  Has the corporate media mangled honesty beyond recognition?  Is spin the primary currency of our national consciousness?  The latest news from Twitter certainly seems to point us in that unfortunate direction.

Some weeks ago, undercover journalists with Project Veritas revealed hidden camera footage of a number of Bernie Sanders’ campaign staffers suggesting that violence would arise should their candidate not receive the Democratic nomination for 2020.  These men were emphatic, with one campaign employee, Kyle Jurek, even going so far as to intimate that police would be particularly targeted in the potential melee.

Now, the man responsible for this act of journalism is being targeted by Twitter simply for asking a mainstream news source to correct mistakes that were made when reporting on the story that he himself broke.

Undercover journalist and Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe was temporarily suspended from Twitter on Tuesday for a tweet he posted requesting the Washington Post correct the record on his reporting about the presidential primary campaign staff of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

O’Keefe’s Twitter account was locked on Tuesday due to a tweet he posted on January 22, which called on Dave Weigel of the Washington Post to correct one of Weigel’s reports that contained incorrect information regarding Sen. Sanders’ campaign staffers, Kyle Jurek and Martin Weissberger, according to the Post Millennial.

Here’ where it gets downright diabolical.

Twitter contended that O’Keefe was posting “private information”, despite the fact that there was no additional information related by O’Keefe that wasn’t already part of the Washington Post‘s factually scurrilous story.

The truth is out there, as they say, but Twitter would prefer that we don’t know it.
