    In the O'Keefe videos people incriminate themselves through their actions and words. People in those videos for the most part tell others how to break the law, ect. That's why they are so explosive.

    In this McConnell tape, which is really just opposition research confirming Judd is a loon (Democrats have shown their stupidity once again by even proposing her as a serious candidate) this was a private meeting behind locked doors. The people who did the recording were not part of the meeting. Were not being spoken to. Were not being given advice that is in contradiction with the law, ect.

    McConnell's team were only reading Judd's own looney words. Emotional liberals call this "smearing".

    Confused again. Mother Jones did nothing wrong by publishing information that was garnered illegally (based on your post)?

    It was info handed to them that they published. They did not record it. They did not pay these guys to record it. So what is it that you are accusing MJ of having done illegal or wrong?

    You're right, MJ did nothing wrong.

    I'm shocked that anyone is shocked by this. Did anyone really think this stuff doesn't go on?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Wrong. MJ changed the transcript to make it look like McConnell's aids were working on the campaign while on the government payroll.

    Just curious...

    If a politicians email is hacked, and the hacker provides the emails to the media, should the media "report" the information in them? Not in terms of legality on the part of the journalist, but in terms of right/wrong or journalistic ethics.
