Skip to comments.New Zealand Tops CNN in ACORN Reporting
Posted on 09/15/2009 4:22:28 AM PDT by Portnoy
For the third time is less than 6 days, a video showing ACORN workers giving advice to a pimp and a prostitute was released by the good folks over at BigGovernment.com. This video features New York City ACORN workers giving advice on how to hide prostitution profits in a tin can buried in the back yard, how to lie when applying for a housing loan and ways to shelter the money for tax purposes.
The number of hits on Google search at 4pm this afternoon? 58.
Some of the news sites that covered the story?
* Fox News * The Baltimore Sun * The New York Post * Examiner.com * The San Francisco Chronicle (the article was actually defending ACORN against the evil people that exposed them) * And THE NEW ZEALAND HERALD???
No Kidding...True Story. The New Zealand Herald actually put out a story on the third video before CNN did.

Watched CNN some last night. Absolutely nothing about ACORN.
I read about the tea party in my little podunk town of 30,000 in a British newspaper a full 24 hours before the local paper mentioned it.
As of 7:30 am this morning, still nothing on the CNN site. Complete news blackout.
This morning I was surprised when I turned to Morning Joe on MSNBC to see what they were talking about. Joe Scarborough was actually talking about ACORN. He asked a guy from Politico to describe what ACORN was, like it was an unknown organization to his viewers. They talked about how the MSM was becoming irrelevant and Fox News was all over this story. They talked about ACORN for at least 15 minutes and showed one of the undercover videos. I couldn’t believe it.
We can always just go to CBN Live
CNN is trying to out do MSNBC!
Is he trying to say that our press is biased?
.....how to lie when applying for a housing loan and ways to shelter the money for tax purposes.....
The MSM and most members of BOTH parties are absolutely terrified of ACORN.
If this was the KKK pulling this crap, their would be a RICO investigation immediately.
Fox, for better or worse, is setting itself up to have a monopoly on the news. How absolutely unbelievable.
