    Skip ahead to 11:40 into the broadcast.

    Asked who his heros are, O'Keefe says, "G.K. Chesterton, underage prostitutes, Attorney General Gerry Brown and hyperbole and obfuscation."

    I wonder if he wants to be an under aged prostitute and that is why they are his heros?

    I listened to the entire thing earlier and that's not exactly what he said... :lol:


    Considering the whole point is how he misrepresented things, your OP is actually very funny!

    :lol: I was just channeling O'keefe...and yes, the editing was very funny...yet when he does it, people believe him.

    Why is that, do you suppose?

    Maybe...does Michael Moore dishonestly edit? I've never watched any of his stuff so I don't know.

    He kept saying how they all go by those same standards with changes of scenes and such, misrepresenting things in a way that reminded me of some old Michael Moore stuff I've seen...Manipulating perception just to make a spectacle...

    Val...I hope you aren't saying, "but, but, Michael Moore."
