If you needed anymore evidence that the top tech giants are purposely targeting conservative, Right-leaning, and pro-Trump voices online, this should help you.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has become famous as an undercover journalist organization exposing Left-wing bias and hate against conservatives, and his organization has struck again, this time exposing blatant bias against a pro-life website.

The organization received and has published documents from an insider at Pinterest including “product code, Slack messages, [and] internal policies” that “reveal terms and websites that” the tech giant “apparently censors,” Infowars reported.

“The documents we obtained raise questions about whether or not these tech companies really operate like neutral platforms, as opposed to publishers with editorial agendas,” said O’Keefe, in a statement posted to the Project Veritas website.

The organization noted further:

Pinterest is a publicly-traded social media company headquartered in San Francisco that has nearly 300 million active monthly users. In the past, Project Veritas released undercover footage of Twitter employees discussing “shadow-banning,” and also published leaked documents from Facebook which revealed plans to target and demote conservative commentary.

The site that was targeted is LiveAction.org, according to a Pinterest insider who added he/she was “pretty surprised” by the decision, especially because it was added to the “porn domain block list.”

The insider told PV that the block list is intended to be a group of sites Pinterest uses to ensure that pornography can’t be posted to the platform. But that kind of content makes in on the platform anyway. And besides, LiveAction isn’t one; it’s the domain of a very prominent pro-life advocacy group.

According to the insider, websites listed on the domain block list subsequently cannot be linked in posts made by users to Pinterest. During its investigation, PV journalists attempted to post a LiveAction link but were unable to do so. The attempt drew an ‘error’ message from the platform stating, “Sorry, your request could not be completed.”
