Today Project Veritas released a new video documenting an investigation into Facebook, the largest social media company in the world. We introduce you to our Facebook insider, taking us behind the scenes of how the tech giant “demotes bad content”, “deboosts” conservative livestreams, classifies users, and triggers special features “close to elections.”
She provided Project Veritas with documents showing the bias evident in Facebook’s policies and actions, and how software engineers go about censoring voices on the right.
Here’s what the Facebook insider told Veritas:
“I think that the biggest thing, that getting the documents, getting video or still pictures of what was going on that shows that it is actually happening. This isn’t rumors, they talk about how right-wingers, they come up with all these crazy theories, and that’s not actually happening at these social media companies. They pooh pooh it. But here it is and it’s in your face.“

UPDATE on our Facebook investigation.
You and I have Facebook on their heels.
Facebook just released a comment in an article in The Verge in response to our latest investigation:
“We fired this person a year ago for breaking multiple employment policies and using her contractor role at Facebook to perform a stunt for Project Veritas. Unsurprisingly, the claims she is making validate her agenda and ignore the processes we have in place to ensure Facebook remains a platform to give people a voice, regardless of their political ideology.”
The article continues:
But Facebook says the tag has a more straightforward meaning. Starting in 2016, Facebook gave a significant News Feed boost to live videos as a way of encouraging users to broadcast live. Some pages tried to game that system by uploading pre-recorded videos through the live API, a violation of Facebook’s policies. If moderators found such a video, the “ActionDeboostLiveDistribution” tag would be applied to undo the News Feed boost otherwise applied to Live videos.
Here’s why this response to our investigation is so fascinating:
- Facebook verifies the existence of “deboosting” conservative pages. Veritas reached out to one of the “deboosted” page owners, Steven Crowder, who told Veritas that Facebook’s claims were “ridiculous” and he does not upload pre-recorded videos through the live API.
- Facebook does not deny censoring political comments for users.
- Facebook does not deny the existence of their efforts to “Coordinate Trolling on Facebook.”
- Facebook does not deny suppressing conservative pages.
The reality is, Facebook does not deny any of the documents of our investigation.
Instead, Facebook tries to discredit our insider. And The Verge entertains their attacks by promoting the manufactured comments of a corporate spokesman over the firsthand account of a brave whistle blower. It’s shameful.
You’ll be glad to know that Veritas will not back down. Together, you and I will continue to promote truth above all.
Stay tuned — I visited a few Facebook engineers who had a bit more to say.
