Earlier this year, our brave Insider Eric Cochran went public and exposed Pinterest’s agenda to censor pro-life content and Bible verses.
Yesterday, Eric walked off the stage to a standing ovation after being recognized at the 3rd Annual Impact Awards in Washington, D.C. hosted by Ginni Thomas, United For Purpose.
Instead of soaking in the accolades, Eric talked to the crowd about embracing risk for a greater goal: “I don’t want to have any ammo left in the reserves when I’m gone.”
He learned to welcome sacrifice, recognizing that, “When Pinterest fired me, they gave me the gift of ‘skin in the game.’”
Eric was recognized for his bravery, selflessness, patriotism and perseverance under hostile attacks.
Eric has faced many challenges in order to ensure that the public was informed of the internal censorship policies at Pinterest. He was given this award because he wasn’t afraid of the personal consequences upon exposing the truth.
Project Veritas is proud of Eric, not only for his decision to entrust us over other media with his story, but also for his relentless passion and burning desire to inspire others while being an advocate for PV.
Eric is a testament to the “Be Brave” program that you have made possible, and you can hear what he has to say here.
I also want to take a minute to recognize another Impact Award recipient – my friend of over 10 years and a fellow patriot, Michelle Malkin.
As journalists committed to exposing the truth, I want to leave you with this quote from Michelle’s acceptance speech yesterday. I think it captures the spirit of our work:
“And one thing that keeps me going…that we know that if we are confident that we are telling the truth, no weapon formed against us shall prosper.” – Michelle Malkin
