NPR Not!

Ron Schiller, late of NPR, called Republicans "xenophobic…seriously racist people,” right? Not exactly. The Blaze (a division of Fox News! Affiliated with Glenn Beck!) reviewed the raw video. Turns out Schiller was quoting a couple of high-ranking Republicans who voted for Obama. But James O’Keefe left that out of his "expose". He also left out Betsy Liley's defense of Fox viewers. And the evidence that the NPR folks thought they were talking to the Muslim Brotherhood is pretty flimsy.

In short, O' Keefe's work is a bullshit hatchet job, full of slanted editing, omissions, and insertions. Kudos to The Blaze for putting journalistic integrity above politics, and for plainly identifying "...editing tactics that seem designed to intentionally lie or mislead about the material being presented."
