O’Keefe: More Controversial NPR Videos to Come
Newsmax ^ | 3/9/2011 | David A. Patten

Posted on 03/09/2011 12:23:17 PM PST by chickadee

There’s more video where that came from, says James O’Keefe, the muckraking activist behind TheProjectVeritas.org. The controversial video-sting impresario tells Newsmax that he’s prepared to release yet more embarrassing revelations about NPR, but first he wants to gauge NPR’s reaction to the bomb he dropped Tuesday.

In an exclusive Newsmax interview, O’Keefe says he’s waiting to see whether NPR comes clean “about what is going on” before he doles out more video.

I love his style of slow drip, drip, drip of these videos. Wait for them to declare this was an isolated case and than hit them with an onslaught of more and better examples. The kid is a P.R. genius.

And NPR wants to see if cutting off its “head” (again, poor old Vivian) will stop the drip, drip, drip.

to see whether NPR comes clean

well he better get more tape, because NPR will never come that clean....departures of high level stooges, only to promote more stooges....possibly WH plants, will only lead to shadier things.

So, the question always is -

did he hit us with the bomb right off,
or is he saving some “better” stuff for later?

I saw a comment posted to one of the articles about the NPR video which said that James O’Keefe is the most powerful journalist in America . . . based on the results he achieves with his work.

NPR is a target-rich environment.

Love to see how the MSM plays this vs how they played the Governor Walker prank call.

The left has one trick in their book: the concentrated Alinskyite assault on a single target (see: Gingrich, Palin, Limbaugh, et al).

Breitbart/O’Keefe don’t give the lefties enough time to parrot the same lines over and over again because ANOTHER video is coming out the next hour, day, week, etc.

It made a Bertha Lewis look as foolish, clueless, obstinate and useless as she really is.

Now NPR are tripping over their own PC nonsense and dereliction of duty.

No wonder the lefties avoid mirrors much like Dracula.

O’Keefe knows they’ll lie ... well, to themselves first - then to us. But NPR can’t do that when they don’t know what’s going to hit next. So he waits - while they squirm... Gotta love the guy ... he’s good.

I use to love attending a business meeting where, every once in awhile, some guy would try and snow everyone. I would just sit back and listen to his/her BS and let them dig a hole. Then when the time was right, hit them with the truth.

Both Schillers represent the thinking of NPR, including the board.
It would be lovely if O’Keefe has video of board members spouting the same elitist rhetoric, just lovely.
I wonder how many board members are sweating right now?

The Schillers are very,very sorry............they got caught.

I think so. I am surprised to see Newsmax use the term “muckraking activist” as a descriptive for Mr. O’Keefe. I thought Newsmax was on “our” side (wink wink).

“What a place for a snark” the Bellman cried,
As he landed his crew with care,
Supporting each man on the tip of the tide,
By a finger entwined in his hair.
“What a place for a snark, I have said it twice
That alone should encourage the crew.”
“What a place for a snark, I have said it thrice.
What I tell you three times is true.”

Lewis Carroll (The Hunting of the Snark)

I'm going to quote from the wiki article as I had trouble with following the link. I was able to access it from google.

===========================
A muckraker is, primarily, a reporter or writer who investigates and publishes truthful reports involving a host of social issues, broadly including crime and corruption and often involving elected officials, political leaders and influential members of business and industry. The term is closely associated with a number of important writers who emerged in the 1890s through the 1930s, a period roughly concurrent with the Progressive Era in the United States.

I’m not sure what you are replying to - but if it is what more O’Keefe might have on NPR . . . Big Bird works for PBS.

PBS and NPR have got to go. Do toddlers really need Elmo and Big Bird when the preschool "teachers" are taking them straight to homosexuality, masturbation and condoms? I can see having a Rudy the Rubber Show but Sesame Street? I don't think so!
