Big Journalism ^ | 2-4-10 | Retracto, the Correction Alpaca

Short version: After "watergate 2" blew up in the media's face-O'Keefe is now being accused of being a racist because he attended a conference. At the conference was FR's own Trueblackman.

In Max Blumenthal’s article “James O’Keefe’s race problem” for of February 3, 2010, Mr. Blumenthal makes a number of unverifiable and provably false claims regarding James O’Keefe’s attendance at a 2006 conference called “Race and Conservatism.” Below are the list of quotes containing misinformation and an explanation of why they need to be addressed by the editors of your publication.

Read the article, its full of corrections of simply BS lies like this one:

CLAIM: "O’Keefe lost his job at the Leadership Institute in 2008 for a prank call he made to an Ohio-based Planned Parenthood clinic."

Truth: Mr. O’Keefe left the Leadership Institute (LI) in May of 2007. He made the calls to Planned Parenthood in August 2007 and released the recording of those calls in February 2008.

The dishonesty of the left often leave me speechless. Or rather not willing to be banned or arrested.

So, I find that Max Blumenthal, the author of these slanders, is the son of Sidney Blumenthal. I guess the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Comments on Breitbart’s site are saying LGF is peddling this garbage as of last night. I hope O’Keefe sues and wins - big!

A funny thing happened on the last day of CPAC. Max Blumenthal, recently corrected and embarrassed “journalist” from paraded through the convention with a camera crew.

Yes there is much I would like to add to the record that Max Blumenthal failed to research. 1)I found Project21 in 1998 via a web search at the same time I joined Free Republic and joined the group of my own freewill. Giving quotes in Press Releases, writing Op-ED and conducting media appearances mostly of my own accord. 2)I have been a simple advisor to Project 21 and I have never been paid or listed on their paid staff at anytime. 3)As far as my appearance at the Leadership Institute, I personally arranged my appearance and travel as I...
