The Mainstream Media Is Going To Be Put Under The Spotlight

He confirmed that suspicion on Wednesday afternoon by tweeting a picture of himself in front of a screen that says 'CNN tapes' with the text 'Tomorrow. #CNNLeaks'

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."

WNU Editor: You can tell by reading the above CNN report that they are very nervous on what James O'Keefe has. If he has hundreds of hours of video tapes .... I can only imagine on what he will be posting.

He's famous for over promising and under delivering. ..I give it a 20% chance it makes headlines on Fox for more than a day.. won't of course be aired in cnn unless they go on counter attack mode which I doubt. .they haven't reacted really to his previous tapes and allegations

Should be entertaining, O'Keefe has a dodgy past, but video like the stuff that came out in the Election and Planed Parenthood vids were pretty damning, I suspect that this stuff will be as well, the CNN spin will be the stuff of legends. To see the media embarrassed, love it.

Aside from what he has, or may find, etc., CNN is still light years ahead of right leaning Fox or left leaning MSNBC, which stations present predictable commentary on just about any news story. The real problem is that cable news brings on people to comments who are working and paid by one or the other party. What is really needed are professionals in political science etc., who are reasonably objective.

Didn't the president of CNN write an open letter threatening trump that they control his image around the world.
