CNN Calls the Cops on Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe for Crashing Company-Wide Phone Call

CNN said it is involv­ing “law enforce­ment” after James O’Keefe, the founder of the right-wing group Project Ver­i­tas, crashed a morn­ing edi­to­r­i­al call with CNN Pres­i­dent Jeff Zuck­er and said Project Ver­i­tas would be releas­ing tapes from pre­vi­ous­ly record­ed phone calls.

“Legal experts say this may be a felony. We’ve referred it to law enforce­ment,” the CNN PR account tweet­ed on Tues­day in response to a video of the call O’Keefe post­ed on Twitter.

In the video, O’Keefe can be seen unmut­ing him­self on a phone and telling Zuck­er, “We’ve been lis­ten­ing to your CNN calls for basi­cal­ly two months and record­ing every­thing. Just want­ed to ask you some ques­tions, if you have a minute. Do you still feel you are the most trust­ed name in news? Because I have to say from what I’ve been hear­ing on these phone calls, I don’t know about that. I mean, we’ve got a lot of record­ings that indi­cate you’re not real­ly that inde­pen­dent of a journalist.”
