I don’t get it either. I have cognitive dissonance…

And I won’t be surprised when Beck actually uses the video to smear NPR.

The first comments at the Blaze aren’t that bad either.

Oh my God. Glen Beck takes a principled stance. How is it possible?

Can we take a moment and just say—good on him. Good on anybody who calls out trash on their own side. I hated that prank call to Gov. Walker almost as much as I hated the NPR videos. Who doesn’t know that a politician or a fundraiser will basically agree with anything a potential donor says? It’s a cheap, easy way to trick somebody into saying something stupid, and then you act as if you’ve uncovered some shocking truth about that person or their entire organization.

Actually, the fact that this is so easy with a politician says some dreadful things about our political system. But to “catch” a fundraiser talking nice with a sleazy donor? This surprises whom, exactly? I’m surprised they had to doctor the tape: that’s pathetic. NPR must be less liberal than I have been lead to believe.

IT’s not Beck… but the guy who wrote this is behind breitbart.tv, so this is no less astounding. (If he does have that much integrity, he must have the biggest cognitive dissonance of all; ours doesn’t compare).

I am pleasantly and completely surprised by this. I did watch the series of clips they posted and its very clear that O’Keeffe heavily manipulated the 11 minute video. Not that I had much doubt to begin with.

Why didn’t NPR do this?

Well, whatever will sell gold and non-hybrid survival seed banks.

That’s why. Didn’t The Worst Pimp Costume In History kid do an end run around Breitbart and give the video to some other outlet? Hell hath no fury and all.

You know, the left has had a lot of fun pointing out the gullibility of the modern right yet each time this ninny releases an edited ‘undercover sting’ the left practically jumps on his fishing hook!

Bingo! The “personal grudge” explanation makes sense (not proven, but…).
