James O'Keefe, founder of Project Veritas and the most feared journalist today, accepted the Heartland Liberty Prize at The Heartland Institute's 2021 Benefit Dinner last week. Project Veritas has journalists hidden in companies across the country, exposing what these organizations really have going on behind the scenes. Recently, James O'Keefe exposed a teacher who sent his students to ANTIFA rallies for extra credit, admitting his aim is to turn them into leftist "revolutionaries." O'Keefe has also exposed a hospital for purposefully suppressing negative outcomes from the COVID-19 vaccine.
