To Mike Spies, these are called inconvenient truths, and therefore never appeared in his story, a story which explicitly opined that James had lost his mojo.
But the real reason O’Keefe is hated so much by big government types, and why Spies naturally gravitated toward a hit piece, is because O’Keefe understands the mechanics of the left. Unlike so many others who talk and talk some more, O’Keefe takes action. He exposes the pressure points on the left, either when they co-opt a Republican congressman into doing Eric Holder’s bidding, or when exposing a culture of tolerance toward criminal voter fraud inside Democrat campaigns.
Perhaps O’Keefe should have known better than to expect fairness from Spies. Perhaps O’Keefe shouldn’t have invited him in. Perhaps James still clings to a forlorn hope that the left will see the value in his investigative journalism. James should pick up his well-worn copy of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky and re-read Rule 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” When you do the sort of damage James has done to the left, you won’t find any friends on the left dressed in sheep’s clothing, or dirty filthy jeans.
