    Seems like everyone is being pretty subjective about this so-called editing....just assuming what this analysis shows is correct -- just as many on the right assumed what they saw was correct.

    This should probably be settled in a court of law, if true. We've got to stop letting sensationalist reporters "make the news" and ruin people's lives and careers
    .
    really?

    this was sent up in another thread in direct response to one of your posts:

    It was "damning" in the sense of "completely fabricated." Are people still not aware of this? The ACORN thing was just as phony as the Sherrod story.

    At this point you wonder how people can even watch an O'Keefe video and not immediately suspect it has been doctored. He does this every single time. Do conservatives really still support this liar or is that just the impression I'm getting from the extremists?

    Deuce asks the question

    Of course they do. Paul Simon said it best in THE BOXER

    "a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest"

    btw- NPR's Saturday Morning show "On the Media" had a rather contentious interview with the slimeball O'Keefe this morning.

    They also had a story about O'Keefe and his tactics and style.

    I didn't see where he was talking about "elites". I'm pretty sure he used the actual word, because I did listen to both versions.
    Do you even know what the bill is about? It doesn't cut funding, it says that federal money can't buy NPR programing. It singles out NPR, a bill of attainder.

    U.S. Constitution - Article 1 Section 9
    No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.
    (In the context of the Constitution, a Bill of Attainder is meant to mean a bill that has a negative effect on a single person or group)



    Well, there's at least one Republican lawmaker that still has some of his sensibilities.
    (Actually I think about 8 voted against it)

    This is Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) response to Greta Van Susteren's question as to why he voted 'present' on the NPR vote.

    H R 1076 does not actually save taxpayer dollars; it merely blocks CPB from exercising its discretion to send funding to NPR.
    [...]
    Whether or not H R 1076 is a bill of attainder, passing such a bill violates the Rule of Law.
    [...]
    Laws created on a whim to reward or punish a particular person or entity debases our legal system; our laws' purpose changes from advancing the general welfare to moving favors from one special interest to another.


    Here is Congressman Amash’s explanation for voting “present” « Gretawire

    All of this following an emergency session of the House Rules Committee.

    Also the House Republican leadership promised that all legislation would be publicly available for 72 hours before it could come up for a vote. The NPR vote didn't meet that promise. I seem to remember many cons getting awfully upset about the 'transparency' of the current administration in similar situations, but remain woefully silent this time around.

    Right before Ron Schiller talked about the Tee Pee'ers, he had this to say:


    Now I'll talk personally, as opposed to wearing my NPR hat....I grew up a Republican, and am proud of that, even though I've voted mostly Democratic lately. I like the Republican Party in terms of fiscal conservatism and the fact that the Republican Party of old really believed that government has no role in personal lives, in family lives, and that government is really about other things.

    Funny how none of the right-wingers are upset that he spoke so favorably about Republicans, none are outraged that his comments are biased to the right. I wonder why?

    The "pimp" never dressed in his pimp outfit in the office, despite his telling you that outright on Fox News. Next, the house these two were supposedly trying to get a loan for wasn't to set up a brothel for underage girls, it was actually pitched as an escape from prostitution for said underage girls. (and the "hooker' in the video also, an escape from an abusive pimp) Last, the "tax evasion" advice give was to... pay taxes on all income. Hang on while I get my dictionary, gotta recheck the definition of "evasion."

    It was just as big a hit job as the Sherrod video.

    But I've long since given up on trying to make conservatives realize this. ACORN is the devil and reality just doesn't matter anymore.

    Of course, the morons at Fox and Friends went out of their way to whitewash the scumbag O'Keefe:

    Fox & Friends Whitewashes Problems With O'Keefe's NPR Video

    Last week, discredited conservative activist James O'Keefe released a video in which former NPR executive Ron Schiller appeared to disparage the tea party movement and say that NPR would be "better off" without federal funding. Since then, several media outlets have noted that the full video shows that these and other comments Schiller made were taken out of context, yet Fox & Friends has continued to promote O'Keefe's video without noting that it is deceptively edited.
    More proof that credibility has nothing to do with getting a voice on Fox 'News'.

    i don't recall him saying that, but i do recall that in the video he wasn't wearing it; so for him to claim to have done so when the video he released demonstrated he wasn't would be... unorthodox.

    Next, the house these two were supposedly trying to get a loan for wasn't to set up a brothel for underage girls, it was actually pitched as an escape from prostitution for said underage girls. (and the "hooker' in the video also, an escape from an abusive pimp)
    interesting. you have the unedited version to demonstrate this?

    It was just as big a hit job as the Sherrod video.
    the sherrod video was definitely a hitjob; but it was a hitjob against breitbart; who admittedly stuck his neck in.
