James O’Keefe is a conservative activist best known for releasing a video in 2009 that seemed to show ACORN helping a pimp, and in 2011 for catching NPR executives on tape being seemingly sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood and liberals. Both videos were edited, and opponents say the unedited tapes tell a different story.
Well, O’Keefe’s latest ‘sting’ covers NYU professors Jay Rosen and Clay Shirky. The (again edited) tapes seem to show them talking about how they and the New York Times favored Obama in 2008 and in the present. As expected, conservatives are cheering James on, while liberals shout the tapes are out of context and are edited. Read more on BoingBoing and BigJournalism.
