Documents leaked to Project Veritas by a Pinterest insider reveal that the San Francisco-based social media company has blocked links from Zero Hedge and several conservative or religious-based websites - adding them to a 'porn domain block list' originally intended to keep the platform free of sexually explicit material.

Veritas has published several internal documents and interviewed the insider, who explained how the company with nearly 300 million active monthly users censors pro-life and Christian content. The leak reveals an aggressive campaign to censor conservative content under the guise of 'hate speech' and 'fake news.'

Pinterest added a pro-life group website (@LiveAction) and @zerohedge to its porn list in order to prevent users for “pinning” or sharing the websites

Links to the leaked documents can be viewed here, here, here, here, here and here. Of note, in February the social media platform made headlines for blocking searches related to anti-vaccination material. At the time, the company was criticized over their seemingly random methods for determining offensive content.

The insider who leaked to Veritas agreed, saying that they were "pretty surprised" after discovering Live Action's inclusion on the porn list.

The insider explained that websites on a “domain block list” cannot be linked in posts made by users. While investigating, Project Veritas tried to post the LiveAction.org link on Pinterest and failed to do so, receiving an error message that read, “Sorry! Your request could not be completed.” Project Veritas reviewed the list of websites from the “porn domain block list” and was able to confirm that along with LiveAction.org, websites like zerohedge.com, pjmedia.com, teaparty.org and other various conservative websites were also listed. The majority of the document lists pornographic websites. -Project Veritas

Looks like Silicon Valley no longer innovates anything useful, they are just building another great Chinese firewall to censor as many people as possible.

Well shit, moral grey area here, harmful shit like anti-vaxxing should be blocked because while an educated person can just dismiss it, lots of people seem to get convinced into not vaccinating their child.

So you're suggesting parents shouldn't have access to alternative information thats not controlled by the State and should not be able to care for their own children in how they see best fit?

If so, that is the very mentality that is turning the US into some kind of shithole communist police state. And maybe if your so worried about diseases, then you should be worried about third world 'migrants' coming into this country - unwanted - with third world diseases?
