UPDATED — Rachel Maddow springs to the defense of ACORN

by CynthiaYockey on October 17, 2009

Because election fraud doesn’t just commit itself:

Rachel Maddow is joined by Occidental College politics professor Peter Dreier, who authored a study on how myths about ACORN were manufactured and how easily the mainstream media–not just the right wing media –was led into reporting falsehoods.

(I can’t get the video to embed properly here — it’s at Maddow’s blog at the link above, if you want to see it.)

So, who you gonna believe? A college professor or your lying eyes?

Rachel: Andrew Breitbart has not released all the tapes he has.


Update, 10/17/09: ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief explains at Hot Air her personal knowledge of the enormous lengths the New York Times went to in order to bury news of ACORN’s malefactions long before Andrew Breitbart published the videos made by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles.

Perhaps she wants to open her own brothel, and needs tax advice?

Ah yes, The infamous Vast Rightwing Conspiracy. Funny I never heard of RottenAcorn before, I have heard of the Acorn8. I don’t know what media “Professor” Dreier looked at but every AP and Reuters release gets a statement from ACORN.
Dreier’s Bio. I noticed a few things that would raise questions as to his impartiality in anything involving a union or community action group. Please check to see if I did that link right.

Yes, you did the link to Dreier’s bio correctly, but his list of credentials there is incomplete because it doesn’t include “Useful Idiot.”

Maddow is a leftist and seduced by popularity which means anyone is ripe to be sold out, women, girls, anyone.
