ACORN Vid: Old or Misdated?

Filmmaker James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles released their latest ACORN vid expose yesterday. (In it, once again the duo pose respectively as a pimp and prostitute seeking housing and tax advice from the community organizing group.) On the embedded YouTube video, O’Keefe said that the vid filmed in an office in San Bernardino, CA, occurred on August 17, 2009. If one merely looks at this video, there is no apparent time or date stamp.

Whereas American Morning ran the YouTube version,* Fox & Friends aired another one with time and date stamps included.** The time shown was “20:41:03″ and the date indicated was “2005.08.14.” If accurate, the video would have been taken at 8:41 p.m. four years ago.

Of earlier O’Keefe & Giles’ exposes, ACORN chief organizer, Bertha Lewis claimed, “It is clear that the videos are doctored, edited, and in no way the result of the fabricated story being portrayed by conservative activist ‘filmmaker’ O’Keefe and his partner in crime.” Even though subsequent firings of some of the involved employees may tend to belie her assertions, the F&F video with the old or misdated time and dates stamps may lend some credence thereto.

*American Morning (09/16/09) – @7:48 a.m. ET

**Fox & Friends (09/16/09) – @8:06 a.m. ET

    Yes, the people in the video were fake, and fake fired for their actions as well…

    I can’t wait to hear about these lawsuits, and I guess they’ll have to now sue more than just Fox News. Who will pay for THAT lawsuit?
