James O'Keefe "punks" himself, shows himself once more to be a cheap sleazebagJames O'Keefe, the Andrew Breitbart protege who snookered the national media and the US Congress with his deceptively edited video on the (non-defunct) community activist group ACORN, got caught trying a disturbing plan to embarass and discredit CNN reporter. (Scott Zamost, Fake pimp from ACORN videos tries to 'punk' CNN correspondent CNN 09/29/2010)
John Cole It’s This Simple Balloon Juice 09/29/2010 reminds us of the context in which this occurred:
These are wingnut activists feeding a wingnut audience. Any video he got from the boat would have been "proof" of whatever they claimed it would be. These are the folks who took a video of Shirley Sherrod rejecting racism and used it to… call her a racist. These are the folks who had Acorn officials fired for ... calling the authorities when they went in and pretended to be sex traffickers and the Acorn folks did the right thing.He notes that conservative blogs are notably uninterested in this story about the guy who has been one of their heroes.
