3. They nailed it, You're not a journalist either, Beck.
You're a slime-ball, propaganda prostitute, the most contemptuous of human beings; willing to mass market lies to the American People just to further your own corporate supremacist agenda.

4. It was only a matter of time with him. First off, he ain't too bright, and.........................
......................................he is really fast to "shoot from the lip" without really caring about "facts". This guy is really nuts, I never thought I would ever say something like this, but EVEN O'reilley and Hannity when put right next to this (????), what, look a "little" credible. How much worse can it get? Limbaugh, Beck and who next??????????

9. They've never had any credibility. All they have left is their broadcast license.
That should be revoked for multiple violation of US Code. Rupert Murdoch need to practice saying, Would you like fries with that?

11. I had a similar scenario with the RNC...
My father was a right-winger and when he died I had his mail forwarded to my home since I was the executor of his will. After his mail started coming to the house I started to get phone calls from the RNC asking for money. It took me several calls to figure out why they were calling my house. To clarify my father and I had the same first name. I told them that he had died and I was a Democrat so please don't call back. After several more calls I told the person at the RNC that I had to euthanize my father because he kept voting republican. I never received another phone call from them and I did not get a visit from the local police department.

13. Any news yet...
Any news yet about Maryland bringing charges against the guy that filmed the people ILLEGALLY without the people's knowledge?
In Maryland it is a FELONY to tape someone without their knowledge - five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

And all the other people, are any going to file defamation of character lawsuits?

If I were one of those folks and a 'pimp' in costume came waltzing into the office I would talk street talk with them to see what they were up to and then throw their application in the trash. There is no proof that any of those folks in the videos were on the level with what they were saying.

I think FoxNews will be facing quite a few law suits.

16. Oh dear.
Did some little goats come trip-trapping across your bridge?

Look, if those ACORN employees actually did what the video seems to indicate, they have no excuse. ACORN didn't excuse them; it fired them. Be that as it may, it does not alter the fact that what O'Keefe and cohort did was illegal. Believe it or not, it is possible to see both sides of a story, and apportion blame in more than one quarter. There is certainly enough of it to go around.

19. Already debunked
That lady on the video DID NOT kill her husband.
Police checked it out and her husband is alive and all is fine.
It was the guy that did the video and FoxNews that did not check out her 'silly story' which she has a right to tell.
FoxNews is going to get their ass sued off!

You can NOT go around with a hidden camera in a state where it is AGAINST THE LAW.

Looking forward to seeing the idiot video guy spend some time in prison for the FELONY he committed.

17. This is incredible.
Were they taking off the end where she said she murdered her husband and showing the rest yesterday after they realized they had been duped? If so that would be in incredible violation of journalist practice?

It's bad enough that they don't mention that the face applicants were kicked out of 4 other offices and 1 had even called the cops on them.
