CLARIFICATION (6/12/2019): Project Veritas has learned that the insider has been placed on “administrative leave.”
(San Francisco) – Project Veritas has learned that the brave insider at Pinterest who exposed their methods of censoring conservative and religious content has been fired. This morning, Project Veritas published documents and an interview with the insider showing how Pinterest banned Live Action, suppresses Christian terms, and censors other pro-life content.
A Pinterest spokesperson responded to Project Veritas, saying:
“Religious content is allowed on Pinterest, and many people use our service to search for and save Pins inspired by their beliefs. To protect our users from being targeted based on personal characteristics such as their religion, we have policies in place so that ads and recommendations don’t appear alongside certain terms.”
Despite great risk, the insider displayed incredible courage and helped expose one of the largest tech censorship stories of 2019.
In our first interview with the insider, he told Veritas the following:
“I think when public policies don’t match with how social media companies are actually implementing them, people have a right to know, people have a right to that transparency. And the thing is one person can make all the difference… one person can bring transparency to big tech.”
One person can make all the difference. If you are an insider in big tech, media, government, or education please come forward and share your story with Project Veritas.
Our second video in our Pinterest series will be released in the coming days.
