More On James O'Keefe (Conservative "Investigative Reporter")

Some highlights of Conservative Journalism:
  • Christopher Ruddy: Main pusher of the universally debunked "murder" of Vince Foster
  • James Guckert (aka Jeff Gannon): Male escort given extraordinary access to the Bush White House in order to lob softball questions during press briefings
  • Andrew Breitbart: Serial video faker
  • James O'Keefe: Employed by Breitbart, fake pimp, another video faker...
And now total and complete creep (as if he was ever anything otherwise).

The story from CNN:
A conservative activist known for making undercover videos plotted to embarrass a CNN correspondent by recording a meeting on hidden cameras aboard a floating "palace of pleasure" and making sexually suggestive comments, e-mails and a planning document show.

James O'Keefe, best known for hitting the community organizing group ACORN with an undercover video sting, hoped to get CNN Investigative Correspondent Abbie Boudreau onto a boat filled with sexually explicit props and then record the session, those documents show.
By the way, those ACORN videos?
The videos led to some of the employees being fired and contributed to the disbanding of ACORN, which advocated for low- and middle-income and worked to register voters.

But prosecutors in New York and California eventually found no evidence of wrongdoing by the group, and the California probe found the videos had been heavily and selectively edited.
For the record.

The plan revolved around getting CNN reporter Abbie Boudreau into a boat (a "pleasure palace"). In the boat would be video equipment (hidden, of course, so as to be able to video the upcoming tryst) and some other props:
  1. condom jar
  2. dildos
  3. lube
  4. porn
  5. candles
  6. viagra
  7. fuzzy handcuffs
  8. blindfold
Which he was gonna use to seduce Ms Boudreau and video it. Misogynist, creepy, disgusting.

This is the current state of Conservative Investigative Reporting, ladies and gentlemen.

By the way Mediamatters reports that there's legislation in the house (from Pete Olson of Texas) "honoring" O'Keefe for his (now fraudulent) work on ACORN.

According to Mediamatters, there are 31 cosponsors on this. Included is Pennsylvania's very own Joseph Pitts (PA-16).

O'Keefe makes Michael Moore look like Walter Cronkite.

I mean, there is no doubt that Moore is frequently rude, self-important and makes his own rules about who he treats respectfully. But Moore has never intentionally tried to entrap an interview subject that I know of. I mean, Moore would probably love to help to cause Freedom Works to go out of business the way O'Keefe helped to cause ACORN to go out of business. And I suspect there is an angle Moore could find to entrap Freedom Works employees, but I don't think Moore is mean enough to flat out lie to people's faces (the way O'Keefe is).
