    article Breitbart


    i think we are going to see a lot of these coming from both sides... in terms of general elections in this country ??

    This is like the first week in high school. If you wore jeans you got in trouble. By october, they didn't care if you wore pants. (michael keaton gung ho)

    time to move on to the issues.

    i am not a fan of gotcha journalism, or unknowingly illegally recording someone. however, when it comes to our American elections, people should assume they are.

    chasing someone journalism, ambush journalism (e.g. o'reilly's, jesse watters) is hack, and i've told o'reilly so.

    Given that O'Keefe is a convicted criminal why does anyone give his BS any credence at all is beyond belief.

    Given that O'Keefe has exposed Democrats for who they really are, it is no doubt as to why you are committed to smearing him. The best thing you can do is prove the film and content he provides here is fabricated.... I mean we are not talking about Dan Rather or Brian Williams here, proven liars.

    I cant overlook the crimes he uncovers just because he has crossed the line of the law.
    His status does not make their status any better.

    The premise of O'Keefe's video is made quite hilarious by the fact that O'Keefe's goon was the one who actually broke the law (straw donations), and the only law broken by Hillary's merch staffer was allowing it to happen.

    O'Keefe has exposed Conservatives as gullible idiots willing to believe any doctored video he produces

    That is how we get these idiotic threads

    O'Keefe's highly edited and misleading videos are the textbook definition of "subterfuge".
