BREITBART: The politicized art behind the ACORN plan ("it ain't over yet")
Washington Times ^ | 9-21-09 | Andrew Breitbart

Posted on 09/20/2009 8:23:36 PM PDT by icwhatudo

"They were not going to report this blockbuster unless they were forced to. And they were. What's more, it ain't over yet. Not every hint I dropped in that piece about what was to come has played itself out yet. Stay tuned."

----snip----

"High praise to you, Mr. Stewart. It's nice to see there's someone out there in liberal media-land who would recognize there's something terribly wrong on these videos. And yes, there are more to come."

At the very least, filmmaker James O'Keefe and actress Hannah Giles deserve a Pulitzer Prize for their expose of deep corruption and unspeakable immorality at the ACORN housing division. But more important, I won't rest until they receive a grant to continue their partisan artistry from the National Endowment for the Arts.

That's this week's mission. "

Based on this, and the other thread Pregame Report: The NEA Conference Call, I think we may see the NEA scandal (Was the NEA coordinating with the White House to push their agenda on a group of artists eager for and reliant upon the NEA for grants?) get connected to ACORN.

"Tomorrow at noon ET, explosive new information will answer that question and raise many others."

Miss Giles and Mr. O’Keefe are brave journalists who are supported by Breitbart. Stay tuned.

Brilliant!

We owe a debt of gratitude to Andrew Breitbart for rediscovering the art and honesty of true journalism.

Imagine if he got an NEA worker to say a prostitute could be a “performing artist” and therefore could qualify for government grants..LOL

Couldn't agree more - hats off to picking up where the old media left off. Old media should be referred to as State Run Media (SRM), not MSM - they are anything but Main Stream in today's environment. They are stenographers for Obama.

ROFLOL! That was a good one! Nothing would shock me at this point. I love watching the investigative journalism unfold and make the MSM look like bumps on a log because they have forgotten how to investigate anything Democrat including Rangel.

I already refer to ABC,NBC,CBS,MSNBC,CNN,PBS,NPR as SOBs (State Operated Broadcasters). And they are all lying SOBs.

I like it, but keep in mind that the next time a Republican is in the White House, the media will switch from State Run to anti-President in the blink of an eye. Glenn Beck is calling them the Fringe Media since they're so completely out of touch with mainstream America.

Yes indeed. It seems amazing that it was ever lost, considering that these videos and the stories behind them have not only educated but entertained the general public. Isn't that what successful journalists -- in print, radio and television and now the internet --- do? This is how the journalism industry was built, presenting the truth in an appealing form. The truth sells. Carefully parsed liberal spin bathed in political correctness doesn't.

Liberals sacrificed all of that for their ideology. Let them reap the benefits of that decision and a new media take their place.

ACORN also does Income Tax preparation for “Oppressed Peoples”

Me thinks there might just be a few stories here, too.

“James O’Keefe and actress Hannah Giles deserve a Pulitzer Prize”

How naive...
They don’t give Pulitzer’s to non-liberal fascists anymore.

There may be some kick-backs from the “EIC” - EARNED INCOME CREDIT - which are “donated” back to the ACORN Office/Personnel who managed to “discover” these refund checks for the “poor”.

Remember, crooks don’t do anything for free.

Check the income tax records of the “poor” and see if there are any “donations” back to the tax preparer i.e. ACORN/COI.

Just a thought...

I’ve watched too many mafia movies :-)

ROFLOL!

I am sitting here drinking a Coke and good thing I hadn’t just taken a drink when I read your comments. I have been chuckling ever since.

Haven’t laughed this much in a long time as I have with the drip, drip, drip of Breitbart and comments on here. :)

Wow, an excellent point! It just shows how deeply entrenched in ideology they so-called “MSM” has become when you realize that by abandoning the principles that journalism was built on, they’ve sown the seeds of their own destruction.

The real scandal is ACORN=Obama. This was his main “qualification” to be POTUS.

I'm kind of hoping this new set of blockbuster news isn't 'sex' related. The 'fringe' media can start to say it doesn't consider such tawdry, TMZ-type information 'news. They are too sophisticated to give credence to such crass individuals.

Yes, I'm hoping this is some other big deal, such as government grants to someone specifically asking to make something horrifically racist or offensive (like what's going on at the Metropolitan Opera right now with their production of Tosca).

And here is the imbecile Governor of Florida sucking up to ACORN while telling conservatives to go pound sand.

Time of reckoning is drawing near.

"Going undercover is a time-honored tradition in journalism, but the use of pretend identities and hidden cameras can be dicey and even dangerous. Anytime we use deception - even a little bit - we run the risk of crossing an ethical line, and we need strong justification to use the method," said Robert Steele, media ethicist for the Poynter Institute.

LOL! Reminds me of the concerns somberly intoned by “experts” and “ethicists” when caller ID became available.

Get with it, Bub, hidden vid is here to stay.

I've been wondering...since Giles and O'Keefe got the ACORNs to help them with child trafficking, molestation, prostitution, and tax evasion, and none of them batted an eye....why not push even harder?

Would they agree to set up a kiddie porn business? Run drugs? How about "eliminating" someone who gets on your nerves?

So let me guess.....Hannah and James made a video or audio trying to get grants from the White House and/or NEA for obama propaganda?
