The “Drunk Pelosi Video” Doxxing Saga Has More To It Than You Think

The Daily Beast doxxed the alleged creator of the video and got some help along the way.

About a week ago an edited video of Nancy Pelosi that makes her look drunk went viral on Facebook, and it made it as far as President Trump himself tweeting it out. 

At the time Facebook refused to take down the video and as a result, faced heavy backlash from liberal media outlets. Then finally the dam broke when The Daily Beast reporter Kevin Poulsen doxxed the creator of the video, publishing his name, work history, criminal record, and even a picture of his face. 

The original video (yes, it's not even the same video Trump tweeted out) is now nowhere to be found on Facebook, and after a lot of effort, our research team managed to find a copy of the original 3-minute clip on YouTube. 

So not only did Facebook give in to pressure and take down the video after all but they also allegedly colluded with The Daily Beast in the effort to dox the man who made it using their own internal data. 

Kevin Poulsen, the Daily Beast journalist who set out to doxx the man, denied but simultaneously confirmed the fact that he did use Facebook internal data in his operation.

This is much bolder and less apologetic than the 2017 CNN doxing. Big tech companies are now using their internal user data to help left-wing journalists doxx and harass private citizens for their political beliefs. And recently Facebook's lawyer stated that there's no invasion of privacy because there's no privacy. The online censorship war against the right is now in high gear and it could have significant implications on the upcoming 2020 elections.
