Project Veritas, a team of investigative journalists with a long history of exposing corruption through the use of an old tactic known as “ambush journalism”, has been banned from running ads on Twitter.
Responsible for exposing the Russian hoax, and also the first to report on shadowbanning — a tactic used by social media companies that blocks messages from going viral — their list of accolades was getting to be so long that they were beginning to put the mainstream to absolute shame!
The stories they report are very hard to dispute because most of the time it is just video surveillance of high ranking executives admitting to corrupt activity in a public place, and it’s usually posted on their website in its entirety.
They take a tremendous amount of risk when they publish these stories, so for Twitter to just blanket ban these brave reporters from running ads on their platform not only indicates how little respect they have for the profession of journalism, but it also shows how far as a society we have fallen. If tech corporations can just ban journalists because they disagree with their reporting, how will people with differing opinions ever truly be able to express themselves in a meaningful way?
