Indeed. And the media’s shameless, corrupt hypocrisy in the service of left-wing goals knows no bounds.

In 2009, James O’Keefe released hidden camera videos of ACORN employees offering to help facilitate everything from child sexual slavery to tax evasion. Naturally, the media directed their pearl-clutching accusations of ethics violations and criminality at O’Keefe and Andrew Breitbart rather than the corrupt organization they exposed.

And now that selectively edited, hidden camera video of GOP nominee Mitt Romney just dominated the news cycle? The media are breathlessly reporting Romney’s campaign-ending missteps in the “devastating” video. All while gasping and eye-rolling at Romney’s request that Mother Jones release the full video.

O’Keefe destroyed the media’s brazen double standard with a simple, four-word BOOM.

Bias? What bias?

The complete video is online now.

But according to liberal logic, releasing the full video, sans selective edits, isn’t important in this case. You see, through the magical liberal lens, the context is already crystal clear. No need for media transparency!

Howard Kurtz writes:

Romney told reporters Monday night that the excerpt posted by Mother Jones did not include the question to which he was responding: “I hope the person who has the video would put out the full video.” Fair enough, but the context is pretty clear.

And speaking of raw tape:

    I’m more interested in Obama telling Putin he would have more flexibility after the elections. Security trumps basement dwellers.

    • conservativechick

      They sure did bury that one fast!

  • TRONRADIO

    These ‘secret tapes’ have covered the lib media’s faces with lots of egg. A beautiful visual, indeed.

  • MikeR

    Romney lied saying 47% paid 0 income tax! It’s 49%! Now will the media blow up this new Obama redistribution video on Drudgereport.com ? Don’t hold your breath

    Um…not the same thing at all. Therefore no hypocrisy. Breitbart broke the law when he made his video. Mother Jones did not. Very different. Public speaking at a fund raiser is not the same as walking into someone’s office and filming them. You people are so used to lying, you don’t even know how to tell the truth.

        Y’all never have anything better to say… Your vocabulary is really limited. Liars and racists … It’s the sign of lack of confidence, insecurity, and guilt … Oh but then, that would mean you had gotten your heads out of the sand (I’m being nice now).

      Hamptom who is lying. Let’s see White water Hillary’s under secretary commits suicide. Immediately afterwards goverment officials are shredding documents. Now she delivers her version of what happened in the murder of Ambassador Stevens. SO creditable.

      But it was a public office. ACORN was a non-profit, funded by taxpayers?

      “A nationwide controversy ensued, immediately resulting in a loss of funding from government and private donors, including legislative amendments to spending bills in the United States House and Senate prohibiting government funding of the group.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Association_of_Community_Organizations_for_Reform_Now

      • weRbroke

        that is why they knew they couldn’t legally make anything stick. It will be interesting to see the details about this “secret” taping and if that violated the privacy of a persons home…

    • http://twitter.com/AUBraves AUBraves

      Good point.. Breitbart walks in with the cameras. Mother Jones sneaks into a gathering in a private place. Breitbart is illegal and Mother Jones is innocent? Think about how many lies you have told in an effort to try and make Romney look bad. Do you know how desperate it is when Obama can only attack because he has no platform to stand on?

  • jdog

    I expect the full video will show Romney excoriating O’s policies. Mustn’t have that. Nothing to see here. Move along. We’ve already shown you what we’ve decided you needed to see.

  • allenbarr

    i want to see the vidio when BHO met with the muslimbrotherhood. I would like to see if there was any conspiring going on here. Maybe that’s why he was in Las Vegas.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Of course! It’s because the publishers are called “Mother Jones” and not “Uncle Tom”!

  • mach5motorsport

    SO the Obama camp had to shove this Romney “gotcha” tape out weeks early before Nov. Must be feeling the real poll numbers and the burning in the Middle East.

    • http://mysteresmoonbatslayerclub.blogspot.com/ mystere

      The 0bamabots are feeling a sharp pain up their legs, so they got “Unkle Gimme” Carter to get little moonbat Jimmy the peanutboi IV to brainwash the public.

      • conservativechick

        Obama lies, Republic dies.

  • Wookiees_rule

    For all you complainers …
    On Tuesday afternoon, Mother Jones magazine released the complete version of the video:http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/18/mother-jones-releases-complete-video-of-romney-at-private-fund-raiser/

      Well smarty pants…it’s NOT the whole vid. They’ve admitted that during recording, the recorder somehow, mysteriously stopped recording and some minutes are missing. Sounds like a Nixonian excuse to me.

  • strat77

    What a coincidence this comes out day before Pres Obama goes on Lapdog Letterman. Wanna bet it’s the big topic?

    • http://mysteresmoonbatslayerclub.blogspot.com/ mystere

      You mean “Emperor” 0bama and Lapmutt Letterman?

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    Yeah, the Romney tape is so much worse because unlike O’Keefe’s targets, Romney was NOT trying to set up a human trafficking, underage prostitution ring.

    • nc

      Zing!

  • http://mysteresmoonbatslayerclub.blogspot.com/ mystere

    Go figure that Jimmy Carter IV is the culprit behind the liberal smear campaign. The moonbat genes get worse over the generations. What’s in their peanut brains?

  • mdg

    To get the fullest perspective of what has really happened re this secret tape, look to reactions of fellow Republicans. These reactions span the entire spectrum of Republican Party from moderate to very conservative.

    Mark McKinnon, Republican strategist and Bush campaign aide, wrote the following today:
    “I loved Michelle Obama’s line in her speech: ‘A presidency reveals who you are.’ So do campaigns. And mark me down as one Republican not happy with what is being revealed about Mitt Romney.

  • Almondleaf

    the difference is the Romney tape plays through unedited and has no “actors” setting up bogus situations. There is no equivalence.
