In a music video announcement Monday, Project Veritas launched its new legal group that will represent those defamed by the media. Project Veritas has been one to launch a number of lawsuits fighting alleged defamation of its own name.

Lanching PV Legal, the group released the following video, titled “OLIGARCHY” starring founder James O’Keefe. The video features sound bites from CNN and the network’s logo makes a number of appearances. O’Keefe recently filed a lawsuit against CNN, claiming that the network maliciously made false allegations that damaged their reputation, as reported.

The lawsuit came after Project Veritas released a batch of undercover videos appearing to show CNN technical director Charlie Chester. Later, O’Keefe and his organization were banned from Twitter.

CNN host Ana Cabrera claimed that Project Veritas was banned for spreading misinformation and later shared in a tweet that it was for “repeated. violations of Twitter’s policies prohibing the sharing – or threats of sharing – of other people’s private information without consent.”

O’Keefe denies any wrongoing.

Project Veritas has also an ongoing lawsuit against The New York Times.

White House Confirms It Is Looking Into Shutting Down Oil Pipeline Amid Fuel Crisis

Gas Pipeline

The Biden administration confirmed that it is considering shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan despite the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

“Revoking the permits for the [Line 5] pipeline that delivers oil from western Canada across Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan and into Ontario, would please environmentalists who have urged the White House to block fossil fuel infrastructure, but it would aggravate a rift with Canada and could exacerbate a spike in energy prices that Republicans are already using as a political weapon,” Politico Pro reported. “Killing a pipeline while U.S. gasoline prices are the highest in years could be political poison for Biden, who has seen his approval rating crash in recent months.”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about the report during Monday’s press briefing, asking, “why is the administration now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan?”

“So, Peter, that is inaccurate,” Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed. “That is not right. So, any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate. … So, again, I would — it is inaccurate what you just stated, but —”

“What’s inaccurate?” Doocy asked.

“The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I didn’t say ‘wanting.’  I said, is it being studied right now?  Is the administration studying the impact of shutting down the Line 5?”

“Yeah. Yes, we are. We are,” Jean-Pierre admitted.

 

The news comes as gas prices have reached their highest since 2014, when Biden was vice president, and are currently about 50% higher than they were when Biden entered office.
