    Editor admits to ‘infiltrating’ D.C. protest to undermine ‘Occupy’ movement | The Raw Story


    “I forced myself into the doors and sprinted blindly across the floor of the Air and Space Museum, drawing the attention of hundreds of stunned khaki-clad tourists,” he said.

    “As far as anyone knew I was part of this cause,” Howley wrote, “a cause that I had infiltrated the day before in order to mock and undermine in the pages of The American Spectator — and I wasn’t giving up before I had my story.”



    wonderful ethics!



    Ahh Breitbart-journalism at it finest!

    It's the same sort of ethics which prevails here.....people posting nasty, provocative pictures of people pooping on flags and blaming it on the Wall Street protestors when, in fact, the picture is more than 2 1/2 years old.

    And then they get all wounded and wonder why people call them liars and posers and don't trust a thing they say.

    I'm not a big Reagan fan but he was totally right when he said, "Trust but verify." You'd think the Reaganites among us would follow his advice but turns out they're the worst of the lot.

    key word in your reply...

    "Think"



    The “mock and undermine” portion of the article was later removed without comment after numerous media outlets, including The Washington Post, New York magazine and The Guardian, reported the story. The URL of the article was also changed.

    As these meaningless folks are wasting their time and accomplishing nothing, suspect O'Keefe at al will infiltrate and perhaps stage a few signs that will cause some incindiery right wing vitriol.

    Nothing surprises me, and surprised that this did not happen sooner.

    Of course the term admit is usually used when caught doing something in this case the author wrote about his own activities.

    I hope these folks gets lots of publicity the more they get the more negative the effect for the left in the next election.

    Yes, especially when the publicity they get is not true, right, 13?

    Sounds like something Dan Rather or little Humpy Dumpy Pie Face Katie would do.
