This douche is still at, even after being outed as the fraud he is.

Fake pimp from ACORN videos tries to 'punk' CNN correspondent
http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/09/29/okeefe.cnn.prank/index.html?hpt=T2

Manipulating/editing ACORN video footage, attempting to wiretap a Senators office and now this.
People have lost their jobs, an organization lost funding after being wrongfully accused (ACORN was later cleared, but the damage was done), tax payer money has been wasted and now he's trying to embarrass a reporter he doesn't like so he can discredit CNN. He should be fucking locked up.

I really really hope this style of setting people up and then "catching them" doesn't become the new normal for "activists" (on either side of the aisle)


god help our country if it does.

"My name is James. I work in video activism and journalism. I've been approached by CNN for an interview where I know what their angle is: they want to portray me and my friends as crazies, as non-journalists, as unprofessional and likely as homophobes, racists or bigots of some sort....

"Instead, I've decided to have a little fun. Instead of giving her a serious interview, I'm going to punk CNN. Abbie has been trying to seduce me to use me, in order to spin a lie about me. So, I'm going to seduce her, on camera, to use her for a video. This bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who comes on at five will get a taste of her own medicine, she'll get seduced on camera and you'll get to see the awkwardness and the aftermath."

Liberal circle jerk ITT

This dude is a little pissant, but lets get real. He is no different from the Yes Men, Dick Tuck, Michael Moore, or any other ideologue with an axe to grind and no qualms about tricking people to make them look bad. Well, maybe he's a little dumber and less successful. He is batting about .250 right now on his prank and ambush attempts. But nevertheless, the reason this guy really chafes your ass is because he is a conservative prankster.

And he helped expose ACORN for exactly what they are, a corrupt political machine masquerading as a nonprofit. ACORN's problems started long before O'Keefe ever made or edited any videos. Lets call a spade a spade.

ACORN may have had its issues (like with homeless guys stealing from the organization by filing a bunch of fake voter registration forms, and also some embezzlement by high-ranking officials), but it genuinely assisted the poor, and it's not like the Yes Men or Michael Moore actually took down any organizations for the entrenchment of the powerful with bald-faced lies and deceptive video editing (then again I hoped Moore would provide that final push to Bush back in 2004...)

^^^ Paladino sent an email mocking black people that said "run nigger run" and he was the Tea Party favorite.

I don't think normal standards of mockery work on Conservatives, they embrace idiocy.

Reading this thread again, it's pretty funny just how much this guy pisses off liberals.

Again, this guy is no different from the multitude of pranksters and "film advocates" on the left. Everyone in politics uses deceit, editing and dirty tricks to make their opponents look bad. Funny, I didn't hear anywhere near this much hate for the radio host that called into Scott Walker's office pretending to be David Koch.

That guy called up, said "This is David" then let the governor do all the talking. Recorded the whole thing and posted it unedited and let Walker's words speak for himself.


How does that compare to editing a 2 hour video down to 11 minutes and specifically cutting out key context to make it seem like the NPR exec was saying different things than he was?

One of them is deceit, one of them is letting someone string themself up by their own petard

this is hilarious. sets up a "sting" where a canadian citizen tries to buy a shirt or some other campaign swag at a clinton event. when told she can't the o'keefe "hybrid source/journalist" buys it for her and then takes the cash in return. he's trying to sell it as the campaign taking foreign contributions and proof that it breaks laws.

"“I think I said this before, but people don’t give up power, you have to take it from them. … You stop hiring those types of people,” Casamento says, apparently referring to conservatives. “We created a whole rubric for hiring in light of DEI.”

“It’s all secret,” he continues. “So, I would rank them [conservatives] so low [in their interview process] that their score couldn’t possibly raise them up to the level of moving on.” He also shared that, as an out gay man, “My sexual identity was always a part of my work because I believe in making connections with kids.”

Casamento did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment about the video."


So is bringing discriminatory hiring practices to light a bad thing?

one would think you’d stop treating these as legitimate investigative journalism after being burned for well over a decade now

you have no idea what the context of the conversation was, which is pretty fucking important

also, do you think more teachers who are aligned with Moms for Liberty should be hired, because fairness?

Absolutely not. But hiring based on political affiliation should get anyone fired, no matter what.
That's a slippery slope.

And I'm not really sure how that one excerpt I pulled from the article could really be taken out of context. It's a bit self-contained.

so if any kind of background check turns up any allegiance towards Moms for Liberty/LibsOfTikTok/Oath Keepers, etc. they should be hired and if not, the person hiring should be fired?

contexts matters because that kind of qualifier could have been brought up before anything else was said about conservatives

Political affiliation isn't a fucking protected class. Don't equate your shit with real shit please.
