They are posting this type of OP over and over again. What they can't admit is that the "journalist and his pimp story" WAS NOT a hoax. They can claim it over and over again but it doesn't make it true.

The MSM covered for ACORN over and over again. Now they have decided they can't completely cover for them. But they know it's not a hoax so they for a change are sticking closer to the facts.

F*ckin CNN Story On Acorn Disbanding

click here
Wolf had some newsreader giving updates about 30 minutes ago. She said that ACORN's board had voted to disband. "It seems they are having trouble raising money. You'll remember that an activist journalist posed as a pimp and a prostitute and filmed ACORN staff giving them advice on how to get money. Congress voted to defund the group shortly after."

And that was it. No mention that the "journalist" and his pimp story were HOAXES that have been exposed as such for weeks. No mention said journalist is under criminal investigation. No mention that Congress' illegal defunding of ACORN has been overturned. No mention that Congress' illegal action probably led to the group having to disband because Congress' act is the reason the donations stopped.

That's why I don't watch CNN anymore.

2. Wolf doesn't give a rat's ass about the truth, facts, the whole story, or context, he just

passes propaganda like some people pass gas, but he gets to do it on national television.Anything they don't agree with is "propaganda". :D

I don't believe that the Hannah Giles/James O'keef thing was the sole reason why congress voted to defund them. They were corrupt to the core. They had some major issues like voter fraud and the like not to mention that they and SEIU were in cahoots.
