CNN: Conservative provocateur targets CNN with secret recordings
Conservative provocateur James O'Keefe is setting his sights on CNN.
O'Keefe said in a telephone interview with CNN on Wednesday that he has "a few hundred hours" of "secretly recorded material" from inside the network. "We're calling it CNN Leaks," he said, drawing inspiration from WikiLeaks' document dumps.
He said "part one" would be published Thursday at about 10 a.m. ET. "This is all legally recorded information," he said, declining to be more specific.
O'Keefe, who uses undercover stings to trap his targets, has a reputation for shady tactics and exaggerated statements.
Some of his so-called exposés have relied on misleading editing techniques. And an incident in 2010 landed him in legal trouble. After he was arrested at Senator Mary Landrieu's office, O'Keefe pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for entering federal property under false pretenses. He was sentenced to three years of probation, plus community service and a fine.
Given his track record, many consider O'Keefe discredited, and not a serious journalist.
In the phone interview on Wednesday, he said that characterization is "very false and very inappropriate."
