CNN is Not Amused


Everything about this story is amusing, but I found the transcript of O’Keefe’s phone call particularly indicative of CNN’s attitude towards the affair:

“I just want to talk,” O’Keefe told Boudreau on the phone. “I just want to have a, you know, meeting with you, and talk to you face to face about this. Because, I don’t, I feel sort of, let’s just say reserved about, about letting people into my sort of inner sanctum, about letting, letting people sort of take a glimpse into, into, behind the scenes, so that’s why you know, I just feel more comfortable if it was just me and you and we just had a face-to-face meeting before I agree to, to let you guys come out and shoot the video shoot out there.”

Normally, a network edits out the “uh, a, you know” from a quote. When they don’t, it’s clear that they’re happy to let you sound like a moron.
