More trouble is coming for CNN.
25-year CNN veteran Patrick Davis is now joining Project Veritas as the new executive producer.
James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, spoke at CPAC in Orlando on Thursday, and spoke about the changes made at CNN, in part due to the Project Veritas’ undercover reporting on the network. From exposing the bias of the former CNN head Jeff Zucker to exposing pedophiles, Project Veritas has kept the heat on CNN in an effort to hold them accountable to the journalistic standards they claim to believe in.
On stage at CPAC, O’Keefe introduced Patrick Davis, a 25-year veteran operations manager for CNN, as the new executive producer with Project Veritas. The crowd erupted in cheers to welcome Davis to the stage, and to the organization.
O’Keefe said that change comes when people “cease to be afraid,” and that’s something that O’Keefe, and Project Veritas, have certainly done. That is a big draw for Davis, and a reason he joined the organization. He spoke, too, about the egalitarian nature of the enterprise.
“Journalists used to be adversarial and expose the powers that be, now they work in concert with the powers that be,” he said. The Project Veritas method, of undercover reporting, confrontations and pushing for answers, has gotten the outlet locked out of social media platforms like Twitter, but the work continues, and continues to influence the media landscape.
“Veritas has sources everywhere,” he said, listing off places where his journalists are placed, including the Department of Justice and the Department of Education.
