Project Veritas co-founder James O’Keefe has revealed a new organization that he will be running – called the O’Keefe Media Group – after he was controversially and forcibly removed from the Project Veritas board last month.
“In paving the way to establish citizen journalism, I have been defamed, arrested, raided, and ultimately removed from the organization I spent so much time developing the credibility of,” O’Keefe stated Wednesday in a video posted to Twitter. “I always knew they would try to ruin the reputations of those who exposed them, the pharma giants, the three-letter government agencies, and those who I thought I could trust.”
“But in response, we are going to build an army of investigators and exposers. They have awakened sleeping giants,” O’Keefe continued. I’m back.”
O’Keefe added, “Remaining by my side are a small, tight-knit group of the most elite journalists in the world. Exposing corruption requires standing up to power because power hates sunlight. We are sunlight. Welcome to the O’Keefe Media Group, where we will never be shut down.”
The new website for the O’Keefe Media Group states that the organization “is building an army of investigators and exposers along with the most elite journalists in the world,” and claims “In the coming months you will see this army expanding across the country, every statehouse, every city council, every school board and everywhere people are conspiring to keep themselves in power, practice favoritism, or line their pockets with tax dollars.”
O’Keefe confronted New York Times reporter Matthew Rosenberg last week over previously recorded instances in which he claimed that “they [media] were making too big of a deal [of January 6, 2021]” and claiming it was “an organized thing that it wasn’t.”
The video followed the same style employed by O’Keefe during his highly successful career at Project Veritas.
“There were a ton of FBI informants who attacked the Capitol,” Rosenberg admitted while being secretly recorded. “The left’s overreaction in some places were so over the top,” he added. Rosenberg also admitted that he and other members of the media thought the day was amusing and lighthearted.
The video has since gone viral, with more than 2.4 million views at press time, and features O’Keefe asking the mainstream media journalist to speak on the record about his claims that seem to contradict the newspaper.
