NYTimes: James O’Keefe a Huge Story, ACORN Not So Much

These people are so easy, gentle readers.  Like the sun rising in the east, setting in the west–so predictable.  The arrest of guerrilla journalist James O’Keefe–notorious for exposing ACORN corruption for all the world to see–was instant headlines at the New York Times; the same paper of record that could hardly bring itself to report on O’Keefe’s davastating footage of ACORN giving child prostitution advice and tax fraud tips to clients until weeks later, and only because it was shamed into doing so by Fox News.  And even then portraying the scandal as much ado about nothing.  Presumably, nobody’s ever heard of ACORN so exposing the rot at its core wasn’t really a story, I guess.  But following O’Keefe’s arrest late last Monday, the New York Times wasted no time in rushing the story to print for Wednesday morning. And while the mainstream media tells us we “must not jump to conclusions” about jihadis shouting “Allahu Ackbar” as they massacre our GIs in Ft. Hood, no amount of speculation is off limits to the MSM about what O’Keefe was really up to, and how far the net can be cast to implicate as many people on the Right as possible.  So.  Utterly.  Predictable.

And we’re not done with them yet.  Now the same MSM that tells us never to jump to inconvenient conclusions (inconvenient to their general narrative) was just forced to run this correction for doing just that–jumping to conclusions about James O’Keefe’s arrest:

Earlier versions of this story incorrectly reported that James O’Keefe faced charges in an alleged plot to bug the office of Sen. Mary Landrieu. The charges were related to an alleged plot to tamper with a phone system. The headline incorrectly referred to a plot to bug the phone and a caption incorrectly referred to an alleged wiretap scheme.

It seems then that their wishful thinking got the best of them. Bias?  What bias!  lol  And now from law enforcement:

A law enforcement official says the four men arrested for attempting to tamper with the phones in the New Orleans office of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) were not trying to intercept or wiretap the calls.

THERE WAS NO INTENT TO WIRETAP.  Got it?   This utter FAIL by the MSM is not an accident, gentle readers.  It was carelessness on their part, yes, but not an accident.  And it was carelessness driven by their bias and their crack-like addiction to scooping the evil rightwing.  There are no coincidences in politics.  Folks, I called this one, not because I’m some sort of a genius, but because these people are so utterly predictable.  This is how the MSM operates, and have been operating for decades.  It’s a MIRACLE the GOP can even stay competitive in this kind of media environment.  It’s a testament to YOU–the regular slobs the elites sneer down their noses at, the sheeple they think you are–that this country even remains a two-party system.  You just aren’t buying it.  Bravo!
