Former CNN Field Ops Manager Defects to Join Project Veritas

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) Former CNN Field Operations Manager Patrick Davis, who worked at the media outlet for 25 years, has defected to join Project Veritas as an executive producer, Wayne Dupree reported.

Project Veritas Founder James O’Keefe announced Davis’s transition at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando on Feb. 24.

Davis said he believes he joined “the right side” in the battle for ethical journalism.

“In the first five days of working at this company, I’ve had more conversations about ethical journalism than I did probably in the last ten years of my career,” he said.

“I mean, this is a young team, but they love journalism,” he said. “They love getting to the bottom of things.”

O’Keefe said American journalism will improve as people “cease to be afraid.”

“Journalists used to be adversarial and expose the powers that be, now they work in concert with the powers that be,” he said.

Twitter banned Project Veritas. Wikipedia calls the company a far-right organization that spreads conspiray theories. The mainstream media ignores its undercover reporting, even when audio and video recordings provide indisputable evidence.

“Veritas has sources everywhere,” O’Keefe said, adding that he has sources in the federal government, including in the Departments of Education and Justice.

On stage at CPAC, Davis said it feels “great to be back in Florida where people still believe in freedom,” the Post Millennial reported.

Davis worked with Project Veritas in 2019, and he said that CNN was no longer “what it used to be,” lamenting that it had become mere “infotainment.”

He said he believes that “objective journalism is absolutely possible” and that he is excited “to get back into more investigative-type journalism.”

CNN is undergoing a transformation. Former CNN President Jeff Zucker left as ratings plummeted and former primetime host Chris Cuomo quit amid a scandal.
