Vimeo bans media watchdog Project Veritas after it accused Google of anti-Trump bias

Vimeo had deleted the account of right-wing media transparency group Project Veritas just days after they published reports accusing Google of bias against conservatives and President Donald Trump.

A screenshot shared by Project Veritas on Wednesday appears to show that Vimeo removed the group’s account from its platform, citing a violation of community guidelines.

The group denied breaking any rules, saying that they have done “nothing” that fits the description.

The group’s founder, James O’Keefe, pointed out that the incident with Vimeo happened several days after YouTube took down a video of their latest investigation, in which YouTube’s owner, Google, was accused of harboring bias against conservatives and President Trump.

They keep citing ‘privacy violations.’ Being embarrassed by legitimate investigative journalism is not a ‘privacy violation.’
Project Veritas is known for releasing internal documents and undercover videos they say expose liberal, left-wing bias in the media and tech companies.

Earlier this week, the group shared a video in which a senior Google executive talked about the company’s prospects of “preventing the next Trump situation.” The group also leaked an email which allegedly shows that a member of Google’s transparency and ethics team referred to well-known conservative pundits as “Nazis.”
