Pinterest has come under fire for declaring the pro-life website Live Action as "pornography." A whistleblower leaked internal documents to Project Veritas. The investigative journalist group, headed by James O'Keefe, released the first part of their story. At that time, Pinterest removed Live Action from their porn list but then quickly added it back to the banned porn list. The Pinterest whistleblower was eventually fired.

On Wednesday, Project Veritas tweeted internal communications from Pinterest showing they labeled Ben Shapiro a "white supremacist." At that point Twitter suspended Project Veritas.

A Twitter employee told the Daily Caller News Foundation that Project Veritas was suspended for publishing “other people’s private information.” 

Project Veritas ended up deleting the tweet mentioning Shapiro but, according to the the group's inside source, Pinterest was suppressing content that mentioned Shapiro.

“LiveAction.org was actioned for misinformation related to conspiracies and anti-vaccination advice, and not porn,” Pinterest told the Daily Caller. “Sometimes our internal tools have legacy names for the technology that enforces some of our policies. This technology was named years ago to combat porn, and has since expanded to a variety of content despite retaining its original internal name. We are updating our internal labeling to make this clear.”

The group reminded people that they weren't "doxxing" anyone, but merely providing information the public has a right to know.

A GoFundMe was created for the whistleblower, software engineer Eric Cochran, whose name has now been released.
