Twitter outrage as #CNNLeaks tapes remain inaccessible to many online
The tapes, purportedly recorded by an anonymous source in 2009, contain soundbites from current and former CNN employees and have been released by O’Keefe under “Project Veritas.”
The group has also requested help from the public to transcribe the tapes, stating that they “don’t have the time or the manpower” to go through them all.
However, it appears for many people the exact content of the tapes remain a mystery due to apparent server issues and “overwhelming” traffic to the site.
Our website has crashed...overwhelming volume...keep trying. Thank you!— James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) February 23, 2017
O’Keeffe has released snippets of the audio alongside his commentary on his Twitter page.
However, people are venting their frustration – and suspicions – over not being able to access the tapes themselves.
Others believe a mass left-wing conspiracy is at play, preventing them from accessing the controversial clips.
Twitter censoring #CNNLeaks from appearing in trending. Only continues to show that they have an agenda. No worries, we taken you down!— Eren🇦🇱 (@ErenTheAlbanian) February 23, 2017
For the seemingly few of those who have actually heard at least some of the edited clips, the reaction has been mostly one of disappointment.
Recordings from CNN low level staffers from 2009! This is a huge story.....said no one. #CNNLeaks— azforberniesanders (@azforbern) February 23, 2017
