James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, on Wednesday launched a new media venture called the O’Keefe Media Group (OMG) after his ousting from his previous organization.
O’Keefe made the announcement during an appearance on the Charlie Kirk Show, where he encouraged viewers to sign up for the new website, The Post Millennial reports.
According to O’Keefe, he has received thousands of emails from people asking how they can join the cause and help with his new venture.
The OMG website will provide a platform for citizen journalists to receive training and equipment to conduct their own undercover reporting.
“It’s not going to be a tiny group. It’s going to be thousands that we train and equip on this website,” O’Keefe said during his appearance on the Charlie Kirk Show. “We have stories that we’re about to break, but the story today is the existence of this website.”
In addition to offering training and equipment, O’Keefe also plans to host journalism classes and seminars around the country.
He sees the OMG as an opportunity to create an army of citizen journalists that will help hold powerful institutions accountable.
“We are going to create an army of citizen journalists the likes that the world has never seen before,” O’Keefe said. “We have stories that are about to break, but the story today is the existence of this website.”
O’Keefe’s departure from Project Veritas was not unexpected, as he anticipated that his former organization would try to discredit him and his work.
However, he remains undaunted and sees his ousting as an opportunity to mobilize more people to join his cause.
“I knew they were going to come after me in every possible way,” O’Keefe said. “I knew they would try to ruin the reputations of the people who did this. It’s not surprising to me, but in response, they’ve awakened a sleeping giant, and millions of people with all the goodwill out there that want to do something, this is the answer.”
The OMG website is now live, and interested individuals can sign up to become part of O’Keefe’s new media venture.
“Welcome to the O’Keefe Media Group, we can never be shut down again, because not only do I own it, but you do too,” the website’s front page reads.
“O’Keefe Media Group is building an army of investigators and exposers along with the most elite journalists in the world. In the coming months you will see this army expanding across the country, every statehouse, every city council, every school board and everywhere people are conspiring to keep themselves in power, practice favoritism, or line their pockets with tax dollars.”
OMG’s Twitter account already has over 89,200 followers, as of 4:19 pm CT.
