Conservative Forum hosts provocative journalist

James O’Keefe III addresses the Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley Nov. 11.

The provocative journalist James O’Keefe III appeared Nov. 11 before a packed house of more than 400 Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley members and guests, where he showed undercover videos he took for the nonprofit organization he founded, Project Veritas.

O’Keefe’s brand of investigative fact-finding involves citizen journalists infiltrating and videotaping the lies and malfeasance of some of the country’s most protected public and private organizations and movements – for example, ACORN, National Public Radio, Planned Parenthood and voter fraud. O’Keefe even had himself videotaped crossing the U.S.-Mexico border dressed as Osama bin Laden.
