Power Line Blog Defends James O'Keefe

James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, the pair who shot the undercover video of ACORN causing all of the recent controversy, have come under smear attacks. Hannah's father stepped in to refute some of the claims and poke fun at the accusers (Berman Post: Doug Giles Talks About His Daughter's ACORN Expose). Power Line Blog writer Scott Johnson is now stepping in as well demanding answers from some of the people putting out the smears.

"James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles are the young activists who have blown the lid off the criminal left-wing enterprise known as ACORN. If they were left-wingers exposing some conservative or religious organization, government-funded or not, the mainstream media would have hailed them as heroic whistleblowers, perhaps worthy of a Time cover. Instead, the media are doing their damndest to slime them.
...
The Post implies that there is something to the suggestion that O'Keefe and Giles's work was not done independently: "O'Keefe insists that he and Giles's work was done independently and rejects liberal suggestions that the videos were bankrolled by conservative organizations. He does, however, acknowledge receiving help and advice from a conservative columnist and Web entrepreneur."
...
More nefariously, the Post implies that O'Keefe and Giles worked with racist motivations
...
But did O'Keefe say any such thing? The Washington Post reporters imply the existence of a statement that is nowhere quoted. The AP takes the cue and puts the words in O'Keefe's mouth. It's quite a racket they've got going here, and someone really should call them on it.
