    This will come as no surprise to some people on here. O'Keefe's NPR tapes have been analyzed, and the result of that analysis is that the tapes were deceptively edited. What may come as a surprise to some is that the people who analyzed the tapes and criticized its selective editing, are editor's of Glenn Beck's The Blaze website. O'Keefe should know he's in trouble when the editors of The Blaze are defending NPR against him.

    The truth doesn't really matter with the anti-NPR people.

    He released the entire raw video.

    How can it be deceptive? It is what it is.

    He's given you all of the video. If you don't like his summary, take his video and make your own.

    NPR felt it had enough credibility to can 3 people. Does that mean they are part of the right-wing fanatical fringe?

    How can it be deceptive? Did you read the articles? He clearly did some deceptive editing. No honest person can read the analysis and say that no wrong was committed by O'Keefe.

    Also, he released the raw video after the heavily and deceptively edited video was released. It's a neat little trick. First, you release the edited video that makes people look bad, generates publicity and gets people talking about it. Then a few days later, you release the raw video, which will naturally get less attention, because, at this point, it's old news. If he were a true journalist with ethical standards, he would have released the full video period. Nothing else. Then let people judge.

    I understand why you want to ignore this. It makes all of the righties who sounded the conspiracy alarms look like the morons that they are.

    LOL.....he released the entire 2 hour long unedited videos.

    Of COURSE the ones that they are talking about are the edited ones which are much shorter only showing the damning parts.

    But take note of what NPR says and doesn't say:

    1) The far left taxpayer-funded news organization admitted that their former executive said some hateful things about conservatives, tea party members and Christians.

    2) They have no comment and no denial on their other executive that said they'd help hide the donations from the government.

    Well, if it is true, both Schillers and Liley would be fools not to sue NPR. It would be a slam dunk, no-brainer, settled out of court.

    Want to bet on who is the first to file?

    I'll take "none of them" and you can have the field.

    Cry all you want, but listen to Car Talk while you still can. You've got about 4 more months, then NPR is no more.
