Coverage of the story from the Daily Mail’s Andrea Cavallier originally ran on the site at 3:14 AM EST with the headline “'Why don't we just mutate it ourselves?': 'Director of research at Pfizer' reveals in undercover footage firm is exploring manipulating COVID to make it 'more potent' by infecting monkeys to create new vaccines.” It was removed later Thursday morning.
On Twitter, users also began posting screenshots of images that appear to show MSN.com also removing coverage of Project Veritas’ viral story on Pfizer.
In addition to his comments about “mutating” COVID, the viral story also shows Jordon Walker, Director of Research and Development Strategic Operations and MRNA Scientific Planning at Pfizer, calling the process “directed evolution.”
“Don’t tell anyone. Promise you won’t tell anyone,” Walker says. “The way it [the experiment] would work is that we put the virus in monkeys, and we successively cause them to keep infecting each other, and we collect serial samples from them.
Project Veritas, which relies primarily on undercover footage and whistleblowers as the primary source of their reporting, has previously been covered in the Daily Mail and MSN.com numerous times, so it’s unclear what caused the removal of coverage on the story.
Project Veritas Founder and CEO James O’Keefe posted proof of Walker’s employment and position with Pfizer on Wednesday night as the video was going viral.
A Substack page dedicated to information about Walker’s expertise and background was also published Wednesday.
Pfizer historically serves as an advertising partner for a litany of corporate news outlets.
The Daily Mail and MSN.com have not yet responded to request for comment.
R.C. Maxwell is a writer, media consultant, and TPUSA Brand Ambassador who also serves as Project Veritas’ Press Secretary
