Mission Statement
Investigate & expose corruption, dishonesty, self-dealing, waste, fraud, and other misconduct in both public and private institutions in order to achieve a more ethical & transparent society.

Core Values
MORAL COURAGE – Courage is the virtue that sustains all others. We choose to overcome our fears.

WE ARE ALL LEADERS – Turning people into leaders. Completed staff work. Ownership.

COLLABORATION – Best not to work in silos. No one individual is as smart as all of us.

RESILIENCE – Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. Never, ever, ever give up. We don’t let mistakes or setbacks discourage us. Pursue perfection, knowing full well you will never attain it.

MISSION DRIVEN – The best people are motivated by purpose. We are passionate and truly believe in our cause. We must be externally focused, not internally focused.

MAKE THE STATUS QUO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE – We move mountains. Failure is not an option. We do whatever it takes.

THE TIP OF THE SPEAR – We are a loss leader. We do not shy away from conflict or litigation.

Ethical Values
Rule #1 – Truth is paramount. Our reporting is fact based with clear and irrefutable video and audio content. Truth is paramount. We never deceive our audience. We do not distort the facts or the context. We do not “selectively edit.”

Rule #2 – We do not break the law. We maintain one-party consent when recording someone is inherently moral and ethical. We never record when there is zero-party consent. In areas where we are required to have consent from all parties, we seek legal guidance regarding the expectation of privacy’s impact on our right to record.

Rule #3 – We adhere to the 1st Amendment rights of others. During our investigations we do not disrupt the peace. We do not infringe on the 1st Amendment rights of others.

Rule #4 – The Zekman Test. The undercover investigations we pursue are judged by us to be of “vital public interest” and “profound importance.” The Zekman Test is our baseline. Undercover investigative reporting is necessary because, “…there’s no other way to get the story…” Whereas the Society of Professional Journalists allows for undercover techniques, if undercover techniques are necessary to expose issues of vital public importance; we believe they are not only allowed but required.

Rule #5 – We Protect the Innocent When Possible – Embarrassing private details are not to be investigated. We stay away from irrelevant embarrassingly intimate details about private citizens personal lives. We look for individual wrong-doing and judge its public importance. The irrelevant religious or sexual dispositions of our targets are not to be investigated.

Rule #6 – Transparency. Our methods & tactics must be reasonable and defensible. We use the “Twelve Jurors on Our Shoulder” rule. The work has to be done with such a degree of integrity that it can withstand scrutiny in both law & ethics. We are comfortable with transparency. We must be willing to be ready to disclose our methods upon publication.

Rule #7 – Verifying and Corroborate Stories – Evaluate impact on third parties and Newsworthiness of Statements Alone.We consistently consider the probable truth or falsity of statements, examine any reasons to doubt the veracity of underlying assertions and whether the assertions are newsworthy. When possible, we will confirm with our subjects that their statements captured on video are accurate & truthful. At the very least, we will give our subjects an opportunity to elaborate and/or respond. In all matters, we rely on the 1st Amendment to protect our ability to publish newsworthy items after our internal deliberations. On whether there is an obligation to ensure the veracity of statements made on video, 1.) consider whether the remarks may potentially impact an innocent third party. (Factors in support of releasing the content) and 2.)The Newsworthiness of the statement alone by itself. (Factors against releasing the content).

Rule #8 – Raw Video. In certain circumstances we may release the “raw” video to the press and or the public. But as a rule, we do not.

Rule #9 – Subject Anonymity. We investigate & question sources before promising anonymity. Once we confirm, we will do everything in our power to protect the identity of our confidential sources.

Rule #10 – Being Accountable. Admit mistakes & correct them promptly.

Rule #11 – We do not manufacture content. We do not put words in our investigative subjects’ mouths. We do not lead the horse to water. Our purpose is to elicit truth.

Rule #12 – With Great Power comes Great Responsibility.

  1. And? where's the accountability? None, never, the elites, the media, the government officials, continue to do what they do and we are just left to say "oh, what a good job PV is doing"?. So they get clicks and $ and we just watch and comment into a void to make ourselves feel better somehow? What good is this doing? Why hasn't ANY law enforcement agency weighed in on the grift that PV purports to expose? Is it because there is no grift? Is it because they are in on it? Where is the truth? Who's job is it to bring justice? Until we see real investigation, real consequences for the corruption, libel, slander, coercion, grift, etc. etc. etc. then there is no point to watching these videos. They lead to nothing but frustration because nothing is EVER done about it.

  2. I still wanna know when Cuomo and the rest will be held accountable for the deaths they have caused and continue to cause. It's obvious that the therapeutics work and are being denied and that fact alone warrants murder charges.

  3. 😳👏😳👏😳👏👏…. wow!!!! Great Job Project Veritas, Great Job!!!!
    Truly grateful there is at least one trust worthy journalist left!!!!

  4. What bothers me most is not necessarily the truth revealed in these videos. It’s when you show these videos to liberals and they basically close their eyes, cover their ears, and go “lalala I can’t hear you I can’t hear you lalala!”

  5. We already know CNN is a CIA run deep state propaganda machine! Enemy of the people and of the Free Press! Second, his brother Andres Cuomo needs to be arrested and tried for all the Nursing Home deaths!! The fact that he isn't proves the FBI is a George Soros/Klaus Schwab owned Organization!

  6. I support the honest, real, truthful reports I get from James O’Keefe at P.V.! Big Tech is scared to death of Mr. O’Keefe! That tells me Project Veritas is becoming too effective as an investigative reporting firm! Go James, Go! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  7. Even though I of course liked this video, the fact that YouTube got rid of the dislike count is retarded. You know the reason they did it is because the Whitehouse videos were getting so many dislikes, especially when that guy who calls himself the president speaks.

  8. Something happens in liberal leftists college to turn people like this because I don’t think many high school kids are like this.

    I had a high school friend that raped my girlfriend. He’s an environmental attorney now and went to the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

    He came out of there a different human being than what he went in.
    We need to start managing what’s being taught at these universities. Parents need to stop paying for their kids to get brainwashed.
