Project Veritas

Hannah Giles, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking 2009 ACORN undercover camera investigation, has assumed the position of CEO at Project Veritas.

Formerly under the leadership of James O’Keefe, the renowned undercover journalism outlet made the announcement, signifying a new chapter in its history.

Giles, who spearheaded the concept at the young age of 19, collaborated with O’Keefe to execute the landmark investigation. The organization’s press release celebrated her pivotal role and underscored her continued dedication to their mission.

In the wake of that significant milestone, Giles established the American Phoenix Foundation and subsequently established a thriving community transformation consulting firm called C3Strategies, which experienced remarkable growth, employing over 450 individuals.

Currently, she embraces the roles of a devoted spouse and a nurturing mother to three children, as well as engaging in the endeavor of constructing a sustainable farm alongside her family. Notably, the press release highlighted James O’Keefe’s admiration for Giles, as he lauded her as a “national treasure” in his book Breakthrough.

“The recent void in leadership at Project Veritas has led us to today…As a news organization, Project Veritas must succeed,” Giles said in a statement.

“We need a free press, not corporate media, that regurgitates talking points from the powers that be. Courage and independence define Project Veritas,” she added, adding that she is “honored to lead the most creative team of journalists in the United States…[in] their fight for truth”

Almost four months after James O’Keefe’s departure from Project Veritas amidst a disagreement with the board, the announcement of Hannah Giles as the new CEO has been made.

O’Keefe’s exit came after the board placed him on paid leave during an investigation into his managerial approach, triggered by a leaked memo outlining concerns from staff members who expressed being “troubled and frustrated” by his leadership style, even going as far as accusing him of being “cruel.”

O’Keefe responded by releasing a video as his parting message to Project Veritas employees, asserting that he was forcibly deprived of his position as CEO and ousted from the Board of Directors. In his statement, he refuted certain allegations made by the board.

Greg Gutfeld Executive Producer: We Won’t Be Wall-to-Wall Republican National Convention Just Because We’re in Milwaukee

“If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that.”

Fox News is taking its entire primetime lineup to Milwaukee for the upcoming Republican National Convention. And while Greg Gutfeld will be on location, that doesn’t mean the convention will be the only topic of conversation.

Gutfeld! will air at 11 PM ET — an hour later than its usual time — during the convention to make way for a special news program hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

But the late-night show will be in the Wisconsin city speaking with a panel of usual guests. And with that usual cast of characters means that the content of the program isn’t likely to change from its usual format.

“It’s people who Greg loves and has good chemistry with,” Executive Producer Tom O’Connor told TVNewser. “I don’t think it’ll be wall-to-wall RNC coverage for the whole hour, either. If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that. That’s stuff that Greg always wants to talk about.”

O’Connor added that “It was an easy decision” to move Gutfeld! to Milwaukee for the Republican National Convention. He continued by noting that Greg Gutfeld being more comfortable as the host of the show allows for more on-location programs.

Tucker Carlson has been off TV since his April 2023 ouster from Fox News. That’s about to change with the launch of an app for his Tucker Carlson Network.

In an email to subscribers, the Tucker Carlson Network revealed “Our team has spent months developing the new TCN TV app, and it’s about to go live. When this app is released, you’ll be able to watch Tucker on your TV at any time.

The Tucker Carlson Network app will join a growing field of smart TV apps in recent months. Nearly every network news outlet has a free, ad-supported TV streaming app with products like NBC News Now, ABC Live, and the recently rebranded CBS News 24/7.

It is unclear if the new app will require a subscription to the network to watch the various video programs being produced by the former cable news host.

Currently, subscriptions to the platform cost $9 monthly or $72 for the entire year.

“We all know our industry and company are going through a transformation and a number of short- and long-term decisions need to be made.”

After less than a year in the role, CBS News President Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews has departed the network in what is a reported cost-cutting measure.

Ciprian-Matthews informed employees Wednesday morning that she was vacating her role and will transition to serve as a “senior advisor” for coverage of the 2024 presidential race.

“Some may be asking why I’m announcing this now. We all know our industry and company are going through a transformation and a number of short- and long-term decisions need to be made,” Ciprian-Matthews wrote in a memo, according toVariety. “ I do not want to be disingenuous with any of you about who should drive these decisions. I’ve always leaned into my integrity and my values, and I felt it was important to be transparent at this juncture about my plans.”

She stepped into the role vacated by Neeraj Khemlani, who exited last year amid allegations that he was verbally abusive toward female colleagues.

Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews’ exit coincides with recent reports that Paramount Global — the parent company of CBS — was merging with Skydance Media as part of an $8 billion deal.

Should the role of CBS News President be filled, the hire will be the fourth person to claim that title since 2021.
