The latest to join the ACORN Useful Idiot Club is Peter Hart, the "activism director" at FAIR, which stands for Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting.
Hart bitches about Andrew Breitbart, who publicized the undercover ACORN videos, calling him a "right-wing scam artist" and an "[i]nk [b]lot."
He whines about a New York Times profile on Breitbart which described the videos as depicting, in the words of the newspaper, "ACORN workers offering advice on how to evade taxes and conceal child prostitution."
This shameless liar states
That wasn't the lesson of the ACORN videos at all. After a long battle, the Times admitted that much of its coverage of the Breitbart/James O'Keefe videos was misleading. The paper told readers that O'Keefe actually went into ACORN offices dressed in a ridiculous "pimp" get-up. He did not.Whether O'Keefe was dressed up as a stereotypical pimp (the videos show him entering ACORN offices in regular clothes) is a tedious red herring. The videos clearly show ACORN employees going out of their way to provide advice on how to break the law. Period.
Not surprisingly, Hart's fake media watchdog employer is bought and paid for by the Left.
FAIR is funded by a mixture of left-of-center and extreme left grant makers. Since 2000 the Tides Foundation has given FAIR $81,844. Tides founder Drummond Pike is the gentleman who paid around $700,000 in hush money to try to keep the million dollar embezzlement scandal at ACORN under wraps. Pike is also treasurer of George Soros's Democracy Alliance, a group of radical billionaires who want to turn America into Greece.
Other donors to FAIR include the Ford Foundation ($400,000 since 2001), Glaser Progress Foundation ($20,000 in 2001), Schumann Center for Media and Democracy Inc. ($815,000 since 2003), Funding Exchange Inc. ($30,000 since 2003), and the Ithaca, N.Y.-based Park Foundation Inc. ($50,000 since 2005).
Needless to say, FAIR isn't fair.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, Machiavellian pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
