Uh, duped --
Fox gets punked: ACORN volunteer knew 'pimp' and 'prostitute' were fake, was putting them on:It gets better: Media Matters calls for Fox Noise to be held accountable for ‘shameful omission during ACORN reports,’ shameful emissions to be handled by the set custodian.
“They were not believable", said Ms. Kaelke of the two actors. "Somewhat entertaining, but they weren't even good actors. I didn't know what to make of them. They were clearly playing with me. I decided to shock them as much as they were shocking me. Like Stephan Colbert does – saying the most outrageous things with a straight face." While her sense of humor might not be funny to many people, the fact is that she spun false scenario after false scenario and the videographer ate them up.
"This is journalistic malpractice, plain and simple," said Eric Burns, president of Media Matters. "A reporter right out of J-school would have taken the two minutes necessary to call the San Bernardino Police Department and verify Ms. Kaelke's statements. But that never occurred to anyone at Fox News before the network ran with the story. This kind of shameful work raises serious questions about the legitimacy of the entire campaign currently being waged against ACORN."Fun fact: one of Townhell.com hack Emmett Tyrell’s “wholesome young people” who did the videotaping is actually a reporter for Townhell.com and the NJC, thereby rendering his characterization moronic.
Update: ANOTHER shameful omission by Fux.
