    I only glanced at the article, so I may be mistaken. But my impression is that he's releasing hundreds of hours of video, and that it has not been curated, and he's asking viewers to essentially do the homework for him - finding moments that demonstrate CNN bias. If my understanding is correct, that is the lamest and laziest way to go about this.

    yes and no, IIRC he edited videos to suit his views, this way you get to make up your mind on what is released.

    I'm sorry, do you have any idea who O'keefe is and what his organization does? He is a textbook example of false editing. Everything he does is provocation using sensationalist concepts (showing up at Acorn in a pimp costume...or making it appear he did through his editing) and distortions. He's scum, nothing more.

    Isn't he the guy who keeps trying to set up the left and gets caught doing it a lot?

    Yes, I'd say he's a professional **** disturber, but everything he does is amateurish.

    O'Keefe is at the center of FAKE NEWS. He's a slug. And I'm not a lawyer - but I question the legality of the recordings. Even if the person recording is the 1st person. These aren't interviews. They are meetings where a bunch of people who likely had no idea they were being recorded. I assume it would be based on what Georgia law is since CNN is in Atlanta. And if anyone was on a conference call - they have to abide by cross-state laws as well.

    I'm not about to sit and watch 200 hours of CNN, so if there is anything good I hope someone condenses it.

    It's not video. It's audio. And it's not on air stuff. It's tons of office recordings. Only the insane would sit through more than a few minutes.

    Just another amateurish charlatan. Get some unedited Fox News footage

    Really, this and the Democratic party email "leaks" are ridiculous because it's like you have a couple who's divorcing and one of them tells you what the other REALLY thinks of you, in order to curry your favor, when you have no idea what horrible things that person may have said or done.

    And I'm confident this fails to differentiate between news and editorial content, so it's meaningless junk. Why this proven numbskull has any public forum is beyond me. Nearly as idiotic as that Dinesh guy.

    Some context:

    What a load of garbage.

    James O'Keefe is too effin' lazy to sit through a few hours of scratchy audio recordings. Recordings that are now going eight years old. What does he expect to find? A bunch of CNN editors conspiring to get together eight years later to be mean to Donald Trump by lying about the size of his inauguration crowd? That CNN copywriters are conducting an illicit football pool?

    If you have a hypothesis (That the mainstream media is distributing fake news. That CNN is secretly biased against orange-haired sh*tgibbons. Whatever) - you need to actually come up with some evidence to support that. Find a source who will back you up. A source who will get you a copy of a memo.

    If you want to be treated like an actual journalist - do some work. James O'Keefe is nothing more than a thief.

    He can't win with this one - no matter what the results.

    That's like claiming you're a playwright, passing out a stolen dictionary, and dissing Shakespeare for "cherrypicking" all the good words.

    NO, he could find something he would want to share and release the entire conversation instead of just a tiny quote.

    He had to do both. Do the work and release the hot stuff, and also release the entire recordings. The two things are not mutually exclusive.

    sure he can! It's a "look at me" moment......but what the heck, with Milo temporarily out of the picture, the position of Breitbart's Bad Boy is vacant and no doubt O'Keefe fondly remembers the days when he filled that slot........maybe he's hoping for a return engagement?

    Sucks for Milo, but Breitbart already has his replacement lined up, a Male to Female(sorry I don't know the proper nomenclature) trans-gender.
