Zombie Lies

They don't die at the Bergen Record, thanks to Al Doblin:
Alissa Ploshnick attended a New Jersey Education Association-sponsored conference this summer and had the misfortune of speaking with an apparent minion of James O’Keefe. If Ploshnick had known she was speaking with someone who was secretly filming her, she might have walked away. 
O’Keefe, who first made a name for himself by going undercover and exposing abuses inside ACORN offices, fancies himself a journalist. There’s no law against self-delusion. I’m not sure that there isn’t one that protects average citizens from being recorded and videoed without their knowledge while relaxing in a bar.

Al - there were no abuses inside ACORN offices:
Echoing the recent report of the Kings County, NY, District Attorney who completed a five-month probe finding "no criminality" seen in video tapes secretly taken of low-level ACORN and ACORN Housing workers last year in New York, California's Attorney General has now reached a similar conclusion regarding videos recorded in three different cities in the Golden State last Summer, according to a report released today which finds the workers "committed no violation of criminal law." 
While describing "highly inappropriate behavior" by some of the workers caught on secret video tapes made by Rightwing activists, CA AG Jerry Brown's report finds that "the evidence does not show that the ACORN employees in California violated state criminal laws in connection with their conversations" with activists posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend.
Breitbart is a journalist... Breitbart is a journalist...
