Colbert Mocks O'Keefe, Breitbart ACORN 'Pimp' Hoax With Own 'Deceptively Edited' Video...


VIDEO: Colbert 'Deceptively Edits' Interview to Mock O'Keefe, Breitbart ACORN 'Pimp' Hoax Videos
Deceptive rightwing propagandists become national joke...

Earlier this week, the Brooklyn D.A. concluded its five-month investigation of the Brooklyn ACORN videos finding "no criminality". Following the release of their findings, Rupert Murdoch's own New York Post, of all places, reported ACORN was "set up by vidiots" and that the videos amounted to a "'heavily edited' splice job that only made it appear as though the organization's workers were advising a pimp and prostitute on how to get a mortgage".

"Many of the seemingly crime-encouraging answers were taken out of context so as to appear more sinister," they reported a DA source as saying. In the meantime, the New York Times, "the paper of record" continues to fail and misreport the story.

Last night Stephen Colbert mocked the entire ACORN "pimp" hoax as we've been revealing it over the last several weeks and, along with it, James O'Keefe, Andrew Breitbart, Fox "News" --- and, yes, indirectly, the New York Times --- by sharing his own "exclusive", damning, and heavily-edited video interview...

13. It would be funnier if....
ACORN got its funding back, and the fricking Dems who allowed it would step up and go after the creeps and crooks who perpetrated this fraud on the public, and especially the people who lost their HOMES because of this

ha ha

very funny stuff
