DREAM TEAM: Tim Pool & James O'Keefe on 'The Tim Pool Show' ...


Guerilla journalist, Tim Pool, hosted guerilla journalist, James O'Keefe, the founder and CEO of Project Veritas, for more than two minutes on "The Tim Pool Show," livestreamed to more than 75,000 YouTube viewers.

"You are an entrepreneur. I'm at your place right now and it's amazing what you are building and what you've built," said O'Keefe to the host.

O'Keefe said he admired Pool's willingness to go it alone and build his own brand and channel in order to practice his own style of journalism because it was the same decision he made more than 10 years ago when he founded Project Veritas.

"What I've learned in my career is that, when I started, I was in a garage with nothing but a mic and a laptop and I realized, okay, in order to make videos, I have to do something else and--I have to be the chairman of a company," he said.

The program was livestreamed on Pool's YouTube channel, opening at roughly 40,000 viewers, but it quickly jumped to nearly 80,000 for the rest of the show. The total
viewership for the program, considering other platforms and replays, was more than one million viewers.

Pool, O'Keefe discuss Project Veritas' Google Investigation

One hour before the show, Project Veritas launched the first of three videos exposing cultural and political bias inside Google and Google employees explaining on hidden camera how that bias informed how the search engine giant manipulates search results.

In that video, Ritesh Lakhkar, technical program manager in Google's Cloud division, told a Project Veritas undercover journalist: "I feel suffocated at Google."
