Twitter Suspends James O’Keefe

Twitter locked/suspended Project Veritas's Jame O'Keefe, for the high crime of reporting the truth about Democrat Bernie Sanders campaign staffers. James caught WaPo in FakeNews, claiming Kyle Jurek and Martin Weissgerber (two campaign staffers calling for violent revolutionary acts) were "volunteers" when they were paid campaign staffers. James demanded a retraction... and with the evidence presented, WaPo was forced to reluctantly retract the story, and admit their malfeasance. James's tweet had a screen shot of publicly available campaign documents which showed what the Sanders campaign paid Jurek. So Twitter jumped in and suspended O'Keefe claiming, "You may not publish or post other people’s private information without their express authorization and permission". By definition public documents, on a valid media story, are not protected private information.

🗒️ NOTE:
If James isn't a journalist, then you have internet trolls that are able to fact check and force corrections on one of the topic liberal rags in the nation -- so what does that make WaPo, when trolls have better fact checking than you? Of course by nature of James's history of investigative journalism and a better record on the facts than WaPo or NYT, he is obviously a journalist and should be given more leeway than the average person. But his crime is that he exposes the far left, so far left organizations like Twitter have a higher bar for him than their side.

Twitter is an enemy of free speech and tolerance. Examples include them shadow banning conservatives (and admitting it, on-tape), some of their employees getting excited about violating their members privacy (assuming those members are conservatives/Trump), and how they suppressed anti-Hillary tweets during the election. That's scarily Orwellian. It's still their company and they get to be as dicky as they want to be with it (within the bounds of the law). But I'm going to point out their moral terpitude just so that consumers can make an informed choice -- not as any call to action (legal, governmental or otherwise).
Project Veritas
Project Veritas (created by James O'Keefe) uses the long practiced investigative journalism techniques of using secretly recorded undercover audio and video encounters to expose academic, governmental, and social service organizations doing abusive or illegal behaviors. Because he's conservative and is exposing such abuse of leftist organizations, he's unfairly censored/attacked by far left Social Media outlets or media organizations who have no interest in exposing abuses on the left.
A once great paper, now a liberal fake news rag that looks more like Bezos Blog (or the DNC's blog) than an objective Newspaper. To be fair, WaPo was always walking in the Grey Lady's (NYT's) shadow, and Jeff Bezos acquisition didn't change much... now that the NYT in the mud, it's no surprise that WaPo is crawling in the sewer. Here is a partial list of falsehoods, embarrassments, and mistakes.
