Sounds alot like how the Democrats pased HCR and how the rest of the MSM ramped up the propaganda machine to aid its passage. I've been wondering the same thing... are there any real journalists lieft in the US???

This is just more of the same old "right vs. left" nonsense!!! BOTH sides are guilty of fleecing the US!


This has absolutely nothing to do with right or left. Facts are facts. Looking at the unedited video clearly shows that it was selectively edited to mislead. It is an issue about journalistic integrity. Your comments about health care reform are totally off topic.

Ok I had to reread the story. Now where can I watch the unedited version so I can make sure that this isn't being spun in the opposite direction?


[edit on 7-4-2010 by pedroroach]


The unedited tapes have been released by the California Attorney General.

It isn't about the Democrats it's about Fox news spreading more lies to further there agenda. If you want to address Democrat lies then make a thread. Don't try to confuse the issue. 2 wrongs don't make a right.


Oh, ok... my bad! I thought we were talking about how there is no integrity in journalism. But instead this is a "I hate Fox News" thread! Got it!

This is not rocket science. This is out an out lies by O'Keefe and FOX news and the right wing blogsphere. As Brown says, the truth apparently lies on the cutting room floor. As Maddow points out.. the end was to shut down Acorn, means be dammed. And it worked. Wonder who is next.

Are there any real journalists left in the US?

Doesn't Maddow also have the ability to edit them...since it is her show?

Hint: Yes

Two reporters sued Fox news and lost.

The courts ruling affects all news sources.The judges ruling stated ,"There is no regulation, law or rule that says the news has to tell the truth."

So what that means is any news source can lie, spin, distort and lean the news any way they want because there is no law that says they can't.

What was edited was simply taken out. Would you care to explain how Maddow could "edit" new material that had been left out? If you can explain that to me, I am all turned around on this.

Maybe you should read the OP. This thread is about how Fox news showed edited footage to perpetrate a lie. If you want to discuss journalism and integrity, then you should really still go start a new thread. This one is about a specific item that was pushed by a specific news organization.

After reading the article, I'd say this was a huge act of desperation by liberals. Just because the guy didn't wear his pimp threads that day means he's the liar and the acorn workers did no wrong? Dressing in a pinstripe shirt gives acorn a free pass to break the law a dozen different ways? I love the liberal mindset. They think that they can do anything they want because their man is in the white house, but it's not OK to malign them or their illegal tactics in any way.

As I recall, this is one of the acorn offices where they weren't able to get the workers to do anything wrong, and they said as much back when they released the tapes.

Raw desperation.

Oh, and I love this: "As Maddow points out.. the end was to shut down Acorn, means be dammed. And it worked."

I'm sure this quote would be just fine coming from a liberal, though: "Acorn's end was to get obama elected, means be damned, and it worked."

Another righty that can only read headlines and bold print. WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO!!!!!!!

THE SHIRT HE WAS WEARING HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH ANYTHING! THE TAPE WAS EDITED TO COMPLETELY DISTORT THE EVENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do not even bother commenting if you cannot be bothered to read anything other than highlights and titles.

Raw desperation.


Then you recall wrong because they used this to get the man fired for the false claims they made.

I really hope that the plethora or posts like this get recognized for the ignorant vitriol they are. WATCH THE DAMN TAPE!

Are you OK? You seem to be having some sort of breakdown?

What a surprise, the out-there right wing comes in, doesn't even read the article or watch the video, and then throw out useless comments. Sounds like Faux News.

I'm not surprised, hell I'm sure Faux put them up to this. Anything to take any kind of progressive organization down.

Apparently you didn't read any of the comments, as Andrew Breitbart has announced he's more than welcome for a full screening with no edited (even from Maddow). Sounds like BSNBC zombie, or the pot calling the kettle black. MSNBC is not an unbiased new source by any means, possibly even worse than Fox.

Who is Andrew Breitbart exactly that his opinion on this means anything? Unedited video speaks for itself. Maddow did not edit anything, she showed what was omitted. What are you talking about?

And exactly where and when will this take place? Anyone can make all the offers they want, but until they deliver on those offers, they are not worth anything.
