In January 2018, Project Veritas shined a bright light on Twitter, showing their own engineers and former employees admitting to shadow banning and targeting and labeling those that spoke of God, guns or America First, so we know that despite claims to the contrary by big tech, there is a pattern of censorship.
We have noted and documented the type of censorship from social media giants like Facebook and Twitter, along with the censorship practices of Google and YouTube, but now we see by another Project Veritas project that this anti-Christian, anti-conservative, far left liberal mindset hasn't just infected big tech, but apparently it is a disease that runs rampant throughout Silicon Valley.
They published six sets of document packets on their website and spoke with the whistleblower on camera. Those documents included "product code, Slack messages, and internal policies, reveal terms and websites that Pinterest apparently censors," as reported in the lengthy and informative article over at Project Veritas.
You can see more documents and the video over at Project Veritas, because exposing Pinterest kicked off a series of events which shows that Silicon Valley has given up on subtly, now that they are being investigated on anti-trust issues by the U.S. government, and have evidently decided to blatantly do as much damage to conservatives, people of faith and anti-war pundits, as possible before they can be stopped.
YOUTUBE, TWITTER RUSH TO KILL THE STORY
Pinterest: The whistleblower was suspended and escorted out of the Pinterest building the day the Project Veritas video was published. According to the updates on the Project Veritas article, once exposed Pinterest removed Live Action Org from the "Porn Domain Blacklist." As of the second update, "LiveActionís Pinterest Account has been permanently suspended."
YouTube: Google's video platform YouTube pulled the Project Veritas video of their investigative report. In the video below, James O'Keefe explains why they pulled the video. YouTube demanded that a specific portion of the video be blurred or removed due to third party privacy. As O'Keefe highlights that portion YouTube wanted removed was the document below showing who added LiveAction to the "Porn Domain Blacklist."
Independent journalist Tim Pool posted a video on YouTube highlighting a Project Veritas report citing a Pinterest insider revealing specific targeting of Christian and pro-life content on the platform.
In addition to showing that Live Action had been censored, the Veritas report also showed that terms such as "bible verses" had been placed on a "sensitive" list.
Pool's video was removed from YouTube, and he said he was given no explanation.
"Youtube has removed my video on Censorship at Pinterest without notifying me or explaining what happened. I have no opportunity to appeal," Pool wrote on Twitter.
Yes, they censored Pool's video on censorship. Pool had to upload his work on BitChute because of YouTube's ham-handed handling of this entire fiasco.
YouTube wasn't finished though, because next YouTube then decided that simply interviewing O'Keefe on the breaking Pinterest story was a "privacy violation," as pointed out by Steven Crowder, who recently had his entire channel demonetized by YouTube because some Latino gay writer at Vox Media whined relentlessly that Crowder hurt his feelings."
Crowder tweeted to O'Keefe "Wow. Hey, @JamesOKeefeIII! Looks like youtube is claiming that even having you on to COVER the Pinterest scandal is a "privacy violation."
Crowder also provided a screen shot of his YouTube notification.

Project Veritas responded to the Crowder tweet by stating "So we can't even talk about censorship or our @Pinterest investigation? So far @YouTube has removed coverage of our Pinterest story from @Timcast, @scrowder, and our own channel! The "powers that be" don't want @Eric_Cochran's story to be heard. It's becoming quite clear."
Breaking News: Twitter has decided that investigative journalism is in violation of their terms of service - @Project_Veritas has been temporarily suspended from posting for tweeting internal communications from @Pinterest which show them calling @benshapiro a "white supremacist"
O'Keefe also provided a screen shot of the Twitter notification highlighting what they found to have violated their terms of services.
Readers can see for themselves there is no "private information" in that tweet. It doesn't name anyone other than Shapiro and just to highlight how a Pinterest employee, who they don't even name in the tweet, called him a white supremacist and censors content about Shapiro. (Note - Ben Shapiro is a Jewish conservative pundit)
Listen to O'Keefe describe some of the aforementioned events.
We at ANP have known about Pinterest's censorship practices as we used to promote our content on Pinterest using our "All News PipeLine" board, but Pinterest notified us on September 14, 2018, informing us they removed our entire board because it violated their policies on "hate speech." It is noteworthy that the only thing we ever pinned at Pinterest was our articles, which are based on news events, and analysis.
So to Pinterest, conservative news and opinion is considered "hate speech."
The liberal media and liberals across the internet deny that conservatives are censored and that Christians are targeted by big tech, but the evidence is overwhelming that they do, but the speed in which both YouTube and Twitter attempted to kill this breaking news story is unprecedented, most likely because it wasn't just a whistleblower making claims but those claims were backed up with a significant amount of internal documentation.
