James O’Keefe, the man whose name will forever be synonymous with cherry-picked, selectively-edited video that ignores facts and timelines in order to create the picture you want, yesterday attacked real, actual journalists via a Twitter tantrum for the leaked video that exposed Mitt Romney’s “47%” comments at a Florida $50,000 a plate fundraiser.
But rather than me tell you the tale, allow Wonkette’s Rebecca Schoenkopf to share it with you in a far more effective manner than I ever could:
Struggling filmmaker James O’Keefe has some thoughts on Mother Jones’ home movies of the day Mitt Romney united the nation. And in his considered opinion, Mother Jones’ unnamed source may have BROKEN A LAW.
Now, we’re no media lawyer. But we did look up this Florida statute that was being cited by Forbes as a total (not possible, but total) felony, and guess what! It’s actually about wiretapping! So that Forbes guy is maybe not a media lawyer either!
That was fun.
