    I think it has to do with the breath of the crime within the organization as to whether it is a newsworthy story or the typical Fox propaganda. There is a story with ACORN corruption but this is not it. As far as prostitution/child/teen exploitation it appears isolated. On the other hand another organization had a proliferation of child exploitation which has only relatively recently been exposed…where was FOX when the molestations of children in the Roman Catholic church occurred (also and I am Catholic and not a Democrat), where are the follow up stories? Does it make every Catholic church culpable…is the government cutting off funding to the church to distribute charitable benefits to the poor? Its like if one of ACORN lower level employees sells a nickel bag of pot and FOX jumping on the story ACORN NARCOTICS SCANDAL!!!

    Fox just simply does not have the credulity to incite the ignorant masses as it used to.

    Is 4th Acorn Video From San Bernardino? | Virginia Right!

    Is 4th Acorn Video From San Bernardino?
    By Tom White, on September 15th, 2009, at 1:07 pm

    According to several rumors around the internet today, a 4th installment will be released today at 4:00 PM on BigGovernment.Org. It will also be seen on the Glen Beck show today at 5:00 PM.

    It is reported that this is the most devastating video to date. “Rumor” says that the San Bernardino Acorn office advised the “Prostitute” not to allow the under aged prostitutes to be educated. And this Acorn worker is rumored to be white.

    Also floating around is the “rumor” that there are more. Many more. Perhaps 40 hours of additional tapes.

    The rumor mill is always rampant on the internet, and these “rumors” are being reported as just “rumors” to offer the feel of what is going around. Please don’t take them for facts. The release of the video at 4:00 PM and the description as devastating are not rumors.

    Is there any doubt that this organization is the most corrupt entity we have seen in a long time? To use Federal Funds to defraud the Government? Is this what President Obama advocated as a community organizer?

    And how mush longer will the MSM continue to ignore the corruption? Glen Beck hopes forever, as his numbers soar.

    We will see how accurate rumors on the internet turn out to be.
    the 4th video is going to be released today, this time from an office in California (yay, my own backyard!). I'm listening to previews of it on the radio right now, and the ACORN worker in the video says shes run "an escort service" herself and that her boss does stipping or pole dancing (can't remember), and that she doesn't know if her boss also does prostitution on the side, though she is sure most of her bosses in ACORN would not be so receptive to the prostitution thing. Supposedly the video aslo has them naming politicians and other shocking things.

    like this? I quote you:

    I love it when white people call other white people racist. It's just humorous.... mostly because it makes EVERYONE involved look like a-hole ignoramuses.
    there is a difference between racism and criticism. racism should be called out, don't you think?

    It has happened in over 5 locations, hence all the videos. It's a systemic
    problem, not isolated. You're an INTP, you have NE, connect the dots.

    ACORN is basically a non-profit advocacy group that works with low-income families for better housing and wages and such. It's about as easy to vilify ACORN as it is Mother Goose. But people at FOX are still dumbfounded as to why no one else cares about the freedom-killing terrorist death organization that is... ACORN.

    They're just not scary enough.

    Well i certainly believe idiocy should be called out, as it is FAR more prevalent than racism. Don't even hazard to believe that I wont throw it your way with lethal precision *AGAIN* if you attempt to argue this is all racism, which it is not.

    Garofalo: Tea Party Protesters 'Functionally Retarded'; 'I Want My Country Back' Code for 'I Want My White Guy Back'

    Comic devotes portion of stand-up routine to attacking conservative activists, insists 2004 Bush/Kerry election was stolen.

    You probably already knew Jeanane Garofalo was no fan of conservatives, Republicans or just about anything that could be described as right of center. But the former Air America host and MSNBC regular really has a low regard for conservative activists.

    In an appearance at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. on Aug. 21, Garofalo ripped into tea party protesters, or what some of the wizards of smart on the left have deemed “tea baggers” calling them “functionally retarded adults” and “racists.”

    “Do you remember tea baggers?” Garofalo said. “It was just so much easier when we could just call them racists. I just don’t know why we can’t call them racists, or functionally retarded adults.”

    Garofalo has made prior overtures alleging any public display of discontent with the current president is nothing more than racial hatred. Back in April she called tea party protesters “a bunch of tea bagging rednecks” on MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.” However, she contended the public’s frustration expressed over the direction of the country was code for racism.

    “The functionally retarded adults, the racists – with their cries of, ‘I want my country back,’” she said. “You know what they’re really saying is, ‘I want my white guy back.’ They apparently had no problem at all for the last eight years of habeas corpus being suspended, the Constitution being [expletive] on, illegal surveillance, lied to on a war or two, two stolen elections – yes, the John Kerry one was stolen too. That’s not tin-foil hat time. That’s just…”

    Maybe it's 10% racism. Another 10% because he's Muslim. 15% because he's a Kenyan.

    That's because you like to be spoon fed information to your simple minded, infantile view of the world. Other people like to hear ALL the stories instead of utilizing their selective hearing by going to only one political side of the media. Use the great powers of perception mother nature has provided you to achieve greater things, and perhaps even reach average levels of judgment.
