James O'Keefe did something similar with Planned Parenthood

Here's an excerpt from the article about it in Washington Time (4/25/08):

`In one YouTube exchange, James O'Keefe, a first-year law student at UCLA and an adviser for the Advocate, a pro-life student newspaper, called the Columbus, Ohio, Planned Parenthood affiliate on July 10 to say he wanted to donate the money " because there's definitely way too many black people in Ohio. " The unidentified Planned Parenthood worker responded, " Well, for whatever reason, we'll accept the money. " In a statement last month, Planned Parenthood said, "Two local employees violated the organization's principles and practices when they responded to deceptive calls from a political opponent who posed as a racist donor and secretly taped the conversations.'

Note that here he is referred to as a law student rather than a film-maker or activist.

5. Odd. I don't recall a DU uprising against PP. I wonder what the difference could possibly be.

8. Perhaps because the media at the time declined to run with it in a big way...
The New DU only comments on stories that the Corporate Media deigns important.
