Topical thread: ACORN and reporting April 6, 2010
Unedited videos released by the California Attorney General’s Office this weekend. Finally. ACORN is not around, but the news people are. Will there be any notice?
Update: Based on the comments it looks like no one watched the unedited tapes. Others have been released in other states. Rachel Maddow has parsed the California tapes. Now if you beat her up as only talk show news, I have a few names to mention as well.
The best title I have seen for this video so far is “The President Throws Like Girls Used to Before Title IX”
I think we should all raise a glass and toast thanking God (or whomever your personel diety is) that ACORN is gone. Goodbye to bad rubbish.
Islam will change
ACORN was under investigation for a variety of different reasons in different states, concerning lesser things than other persons and such that I could name. To have media presenting such edited videos as news, and so easily checked against unedited videos finally released, hurts you and I.
what a foolish thing to say, you obvioiusly have no idea what ACORN did.
Acorn did what?
Are you a blind ideologist or just a racist bigot? The uneditied videos have demonstrated clearly that the news media, Fox quasiNews in particular, carried a story that was significantly inaccurate. They didn’t question the edited versions of the tapes because, like you, they saw no need for an accurate portrayal of the events they were describing. ACORN provided a significant voter registration service that has never been shown to be corrupt. That’s why they were targeted by a punk with no journalistic intentions. He performed well for the Fox propaganda machine.
Apparently ACORN annoyed Thomaso by assisting the poor.
The edited versions of the tapes were not believable, it looked like little kids playing a game, so amateurish. The whole sorry mess just shows how destructive these right-wing jerks really are.
Jack< “ACORN provided a significant voter registration service that has never been shown to be corrupt.” Now that is just hilarious… How many R voters did they register and how many D? And why are they getting a penny from the Feds or State Gov? The Dems should fund their own GOTV. ACORN and the SEIU were/are currently the closet thing we have to Brownshirts. And they are both Dem controlled. ACORN is gone, one to go… Islam will change
Describe brownshirts and behavior, in particular as in techniques and incidents.
Your ignorance, or maybe it’s just bigotry, is becoming increasingly apparent. ACORN and
SEIU do indeed represent and make efforts to organize the poor and lower middle class workers. Big surprise that those people are often inclined to vote Democrat. Though lately it’s beginning to look like it doesn’t matter which half of the Corporatist Party one votes for. But to the more down trodden citizen the Democratic Party still makes motions that make it appear to be worker friendly. Maybe those unemployed rednecks would do well to start listening to some of that liberal rhetoric. It has their personal benefit at heart. Do you really want to suggest that the government should only assist those who are financially secure and well educated? That’s what you’re beginning to sound like.
the Tea Party types are much closer to being brownshirts than ACORN ever was
