RUSH:  I was watching Fox News a little bit today in the process of doing show prep, and it was Martha MacCallum and Bill Hemmer; and they had that idiot, Alan Colmes, on; and were talking about the sting, the NPR sting by the O'Keefe guy pretending to be Muslims. Colmes is going on and on and on and on and on and on about how he doesn't like the "tactic." He doesn't like the tactic -- you know, punking people out like this.  It's gotta stop It's soiling our politics.  And I'm looking at the screen, "Have you ever heard of that liberal blogger that called Governor Walker, pretend to be one of the Koch brothers?"  And, by the way, remember how celebrated that was?

Remember the left, the media loved that guy. That blogger was celebrated. He was a hero.  I don't care what media it was, that media loved it.  Anything to screw Governor Walker, and he didn't say anything to the impersonator. He didn't embarrass himself at all -- not at all -- the way Schiller did when he got punked by O'Keefe.   You know, folks, when you look at these things and you compare them, the left right now... Get this: The left wants ethics charges against Governor Walker for having taken the prank call from the basement living room of a leftist blogger who pretended to be David Koch! 



Colmes is such a freaking doufus.........

So the new conservative media here has sort of turned the tactics of the left on them.  Mike Wallace and 60 Minutes have a closet full of Emmys for doing this kind of stuff.  They do.  Everybody has a memory of a 60 Minutes story, be it a thug auto repair executive or a thug in some other private sector capitalist endeavor or what have you.  I mean they're famous for this kind of stuff.

And that is precisely how this battle will be won - only if we turn the tools of the enemy against him.

word.

what this country is about to face is not for the weak-kneed.  I am old enoggh to remember the civil rights "marches" which were not peaceful, George Wallace and why he was shot, the Kent State riots, Chicago 8 and more......... things are about to get ugly very fast.

O'Keefe really did score big time on this one.  Schiller losing her job was a tacit admission of malfeasance on the part of NPR's board.  They must be cognizant as to how all of this looks to a GOP congress that just defunded them, and to conservative donors who are regularly duped by pledge drives.

Yep and they must be livid the Schiller played right into the GOP hands by saying  NPR would be just fine without congressional funding..... and if this jerk was not saying what he really thought, why would he say what he said to a total stranger?

Especially, when his job was fund-raising.

Vivian Schiller has now been given the heave-ho.  Wonder what's up with that?  There's talk that O'Keefe has MORE NPR footage that he's planning to release in due time.

What an anti-intellectual way to go about this.  O'Keefe's a hard-nosed tea party type.  Heck, he's probably a fundamentalist Christian and a Palin fan too.   :silly:

O'Keefe gives me hope that we may have a new generation of reporters who actually dig for the truth and do what it takes to get to the truth.

It's all a matter of turning the left's tactics against it.  After all, isn't this akin to how that great bloated monster, Michael Moore, got his start?

Except O'Keefe sets his targets up with much more finesse than MM.

True enough; that's what happens when you put someone with a good work ethic on the job!

60 MINUTES (Mike Wallace & friends) was a pioneer of this type of "journalism".
