Yes, I did read the whole story. Thanks for at least admitting that the headline is midleading. Actually it's a lie, but whatever....Did you read the article in the OP? Note THE FIRST LINE:"Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York -- operating as New York Communities for Change" thus the TITLE of the article IS misleading.
Yes, I don't dispute that NYCC is largely the NYC branch of the former ACORN. So what? It's now a local organization.The link I furnished was an attempt to provide a more left leaning source of the transition of ACORN to NYCC and thus the link.
Yeah, those are questions, aren't they? But since the sources are all anonymous and as there was no follow up, there are no answers. We might conjecture that, IF ACORN documents were being shredded, it might be because ACORN no longer exists and they want to preserve the confidentiality of former ACORN clients. Is NYCC receiving federal funding? I don't know, but I'm sure the reporter could have found out if he wanted to. Since he didn't mention it I would assume that the answer is no. ARE they really paying protesters? NYCC denies it and no one has gone on record to contradict them. The author claims that two people were fired over this -- also denied. Why didn't he interview those alleged people? Surely they would PO'd and willing to talk, right?Are they REALLY using/shreading/storing any ACORN materials and why. Also of issue is whether NYCC is receiving federal funds as ACORN did. IF so are they REALLY paying protestors as the article states?
If I were working for them I wouldn't blabl to Fox News about the organization, knowing as I do that Fox has a hard on for any group that helps poor people get registered to vote. Again, I don't think the people who were allegedly fired would refrain from commenting. Do you?Yes, I know they didn't quote the source but as inquired previously and HYPOTHETICALLY of others, if YOU were working at the NYCC and participated in the interview reported would YOU allow your name to be published?
So they're guilty until proven innocent? It takes big money to bring a lawsuit and community groups tend to not be rolling in dough.Yes, I know this ALL appears to be suppostion but consider the statement 'We see FOX as the enemy to those efforts' from the article. IF this is so AND NYCC are innocent they would have a compelling legal case and would presumably JUMP at the chance to 'bring down the enemy'.
Yeah, why hasn't anyone proven a negative, yet?ps. NO one has yet provided any contradictory evidence that this story is false as requested other than 'this is wrong' or 'Fox lies'.
