Project Veritas is the most well known and feared undercover journalism operation and James O’Keefe has been at the helm of this formidable organisation for over a decade.
It is an absolute pleasure to speak with James about their latest expose involving an FBI whistleblower and also to discuss his latest book American Muckraker, which delves into the reasons why Project Veritas exists and the struggles they have had in exposing truth when the establishment, in all its forms wants to silence them.
James O’Keefe is an award-winning journalist and writer. He is the founder and President of both Project Veritas and Project Veritas Action, non-profit organizations dedicated to investigating corruption, dishonesty, waste and fraud in both public and private institutions.
At nineteen James started a newspaper at Rutgers, five years later he conducted an undercover investigation, financed with nothing but a credit card, that led to the congressional defunding of ACORN. He founded Project Veritas by shipping hidden cameras to citizen reporters and whistleblowers.
This new genre of guerilla video journalism ignited a movement with the tagline: "Be Brave, Do Something."
Along the way, O'Keefe has exposed big tech abuses, media malfeasance, and state and federal election violations leading to scores of resignations and arrests.
His work has also led to enhanced voter integrity, new state legislation, and courtroom First Amendment triumphs - including a 2021 defamation lawsuit against The New York Times and the recent FBI raids on his home concerning the Biden diaries, the undercover reports on Pfizer and the COVID narrative and his removal from Twitter have certainly got people talking.
James is the author of Breakthrough: Our Guerilla War to Expose Fraud and Save Democracy and American Pravda: My Fight for Truth in the Era of Fake News.
His latest book is American Muckraker: Rethinking Journalism for the 21st Century.
It is a work of nonfiction and recounts the new journalistic mass movement of today. Compiled from over a decade of investigative reporting coupled with a vast reference of philosophical research, American Muckraker is the definitive guide of truth-telling in the video age and is available on Amazon and all good non-woke book stores.
