Prankster O’Keefe Strikes NPR

Ian Murphy, step back: James O’Keefe is back in the game. The young conservative activist and prankster released a new video Tuesday morning showing Ron Schiller, a recently departed NPR fundraising executive, bashing Republicans, the Tea Party, and Juan Williams for Islamophobia during a meeting with what Schiller was told were representatives of a charity funded by the Muslim Brotherhood. “They're seriously racist, racist people,” he says of Tea Partiers. Schiller announced Monday that he was leaving for a job at the Aspen Institute. NPR strongly condemned his taped remarks Tuesday. O’Keefe rose to fame with the sting videos that helped bring down the community organizing group ACORN.
