Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
The new charges are contained in a bill of information, which can only be filed with a defendant's consent and typically signals a plea deal.
There is absolutely no reason for a prosecutor to suddenly drop charges.
And when a plea deal is announced at the exact same time, and where the announcement includes a statement pointing out that this is done because of a plea agreement, I think the proper conclusion is (I know -- this is tough, but try to follow me here) there was a plea agreement.

EDIT- BTW, I went to college for broadcasting which also involves a journalism aspect, there is no credibility test for journalism, if there were quite a few "credible" journalists would be flipping burgers right now.

Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
It turns out more and more that some people either don't or can't read and comprehend, and thus get confused.
Plea bargains are not offered if a solid case for the prosecution exists, and there is no way the Federal prosecutors file reduced charges against O'Keefe after what he and his partner took down Obama's pals at ACORN if they had a bigger case.
We have seen Obama pals in the past get a pass in the past so it's no stretch to believe Obama would want to make sure the book was thrown at these four knuckle heads who didn't think there little caper through.
