After Whining About Lack Of Media Coverage Of ACORN Videos, Hannity And Beck Silent About Arrest Of Videographer

Reported by Ellen - January 27, 2010 -

Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity could not get enough of the ACORN videos made by undercover filmmakers James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, the young conservative activists who, posing as a pimp and prostitute, captured a number of low-level ACORN employees offering them advice about how to get loans for a brothel with under-age girls. Just about every time Beck and Hannity trumpeted the videos, they attacked the mainstream media for ignoring what they kept holding up as such an important story (never mind that ACORN has since been exonerated by the Congressional Research Service). So you'd think, then, that O'Keefe's arrest by the FBI after allegedly trying to interfere with the telephone system in Senator Mary Landrieu's office would be worthy of at least a mention on either Beck's or Hannity's show. But no. Neither show mentioned the arrest.
