I am A Tea Party, South Park Republican. And there is no doubt James O'Keefe has done more than anyone to expose the hypocrisy and criminality of The Left / Mainstream Media in these last five years. He has gone after the truth where no one else would dare.
But this goes WAY beyond the pale. This wasn't about exposing abuse or fraud by the Democrats and their hangers on. This appears, from what the article indicates, to be a petty, personal vendetta.
Jim Letten is a friend of mine. He is, without a doubt, one of the finest and most honorable men I have had the pleasure to know. Know his wife and kids, too. And for O'Keefe to try to embroil them in his anger is not 'guerilla journalism'. It is simply despicable. Despicable.
One correction, though, is necessary. The article's insinuation that O'Keefe's ACORN videos were not accurate is bullshit. They were no more "selectively edited" than a 60 Minutes expose video is "selectively edited". Plus, O'Keefe released the full raw feed which backed the up his conclusion. Ever see Morley Safer do that?
