    (San Bernardino, CA) -- Today the videographer James O'Keefe's hidden camera "interview" with San Bernardino ACORN organizer Tresa Kaelke, airing repeatedly on Fox "News", including the Glenn Beck show, and onBigGovernment.com, has been caught out in an obvious set of lies and manipulations.
    ............
    When the actors approached Ms. Kaelke with their provocative costuming and outlandish scenario, she could nottake them seriously. So she met their outrageousness with her own personal style of outrageousness. She matched their false scenario with her own false scenarios.
    ...........................
    "They were not believable", said Ms. Kaelke of the two actors. "Somewhat entertaining, but they weren't evengood actors. I didn't know what to make of them. They were clearly playing with me. I decided to shock them asmuch as they were shocking me. Like Stephan Colbert does saying the most outrageous things with a straightface." While her sense of humor might not be funny to many people, the fact is that she spun false scenario afterfalse scenario and the videographer ate them up.
    ...........................
    For example, in response to the set-up by the filmmakers in which they say they are trying get the young womanaway from her abusive pimp, she responds that she was abused by her former husband as well (true) and that sheshot and killed him (false). He is very much alive and living near Barstow, CA.
    ..................
    However, this is taken as the gospel truth, not just in the film itself, but also by several "news" personalities,indicating that no journalistic standards were applied to making the video or vetting it for broadcast.
    ......................
    Further, as the actors repeatedly noted how nice she was being, Ms Kaelke responded, also repeatedly, that her"niceness" was just her, not ACORN. "My supervisor would shoot this down like faster than a bat out of hell."
    .........................
    When the actors talked about bringing 12-13 year olds in from another country, supposedly because they neededa lot of money fast for a political campaign, Ms. Kaelke said, "You are going to need it for a lawyer!"
    ....................
    These exchanges, which do not appear in the edited film put on BigGovernment.com, call into question thejournalistic standards of the film and of any purported news organization that chooses to run them.
    ................
    Ms. Kaelke, who did not know she was being filmed, is appalled that her defensive attempts to deal with atroubling experience have been manipulated into an attack on her work helping low- and moderate-incomefamilies fight the foreclosure crisis, work for needed health care reform, and face the economic crisis in San Bernardino.
