No Surprise – O’Keefe’s NPR Sting Video Fraudulent

Liar, Fraud, Convict James O'Keefe (left)

Why, oh why, would anyone take this convict seriously?  Even Glenn Beck‘s website “The Blaze” calls O’Keefe’s video ‘deceptively edited’.

Glenn Beck-branded website The Blaze may seem an unlikely defender of NPR, but when the site’s editor, Scott Baker, and video production specialist, Pam Key, examined the raw footage, they found “questionable editing and tactics” and reported them all out. The observations they make in their analysis include the following:

— The video “does not explain how the NPR executives would have a basis to believe they were meeting with a Muslim Brotherhood front group,” and indeed “includes a longer section of description that seems to downplay connections of the MEAC group to the Muslim Brotherhood as popularly perceived.”

— The video is edited to make it appear that Ron Schiller “is aware and perhaps amused or approving of the MEAC[‘s]” advocacy for Sharia law, but Schiller’s “Really? That’s what they said?” remark is actually made in reference to “confusion” involving the “restaurant reservation.”

— Schiller is actually complimentary of Republicans, and prefaces his criticism of the Tea Party by indicating that it’s his own opinion, not NPR’s. (Plenty of conservatives and Tea Party activists have averred that NPR has treated them fairly.) Baker also finds footage in which Schiller and director of institutional giving Betsy Liley express a hesitancy to disparage the “education of conservatives” and defend “intellects of Fox News viewers.”

James O’Keefe has shown over and over he has no interest in truthful reporting, so why does he still get attention?

  1. Really Christian? That’s it?

    Even if all this is true… which I’m pretty sure it’s not.

    James could have edited this thing ten ways to Sunday. He could have colorized it, filmed it in 3D, sepia-toned it, added a musical score, or whatever.

    The story is that this guy met with people he knew to be tied to muslim radicals to take their blood money. Geez.

    1. Actually, editing it to make it seem that people said things that they didn’t say at all by taking comments out of one context and putting it into another, completely unrelated context, is fraudulent.

      It’s lying. Plain and simple. Even Glenn Beck’s people admit the video is deceptively edited.

      It’s true, Eugene… your being “pretty sure it’s not” indicates a disconnect from reality and a complete inability to deal with it. In fact, that’s the same attitude that nutjob tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists have whether they’re birthers, alien abduction nuts, or believe that the moon landing was filmed on a sound stage in Phoenix.

      “I reject reality and substitute my own” is not a healthy way to deal with society. Or, as Mr. Hoover from the movie Animal House said… “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.”

  2. Okay… blah, blah, blah, blah…

    How many entries on your blog of “fraudulent” liberal media examples have you posted? Hmmmmmmmmm. None that I have seen. How many do you think that I could put up here from sources that you use as references for YOUR copy-and-paste hit jobs?

    Another Question.
    Did Schiller meet with people he believed to be connected to the muslim brotherhood to take their blood money. A simple yes or no will do.

    Let me try this again. For the SEVENTH time

    Hey Christian… How much over the minimum that you owe the government do you send in? One cent? One Dollar? Ten Dollars? One hundred dollars?

    Let me guess…. Mmmmmmm… Not one single penny more?


    If more taxes are a good thing then you and all your liberal buddies better start sending more in. Lead the way baby, start a movement. Show us buffoon conservatives how it’s done. Get a hold of Warren Buffet and pitch the idea and see how far you get. The only thing you’re gonna get is thrown out of his building. He brags that his secretary is in a higher tax bracket than he is. What’s stopping him from sending ‘Ol Uncle Sam the difference? I’ll tell you what it is… Like every other liberal I have ever met.. He and you, and other people like you are only generous to the government with other people’s money.

    Until liberals start walking their talk they have no business lecturing anybody else.
