The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) announced Thursday it had filed a lawsuit against James O'Keefe, Hannah Giles and LLC for what it alleged was "illegal videotaping" of ACORN employees in Baltimore.

Hannity: "Hannah, if you get in trouble ... we can help you. We'll put out the word." After interviewing Giles and her attorney about the lawsuit, Sean Hannity stated, "Well, listen, Hannah, if you get in trouble and you need the lawyer, I'll tell you what, we can help you. We'll put out the word. I'm sure there's a lot of people that may want to help you with a legal defense fund. And if you get to that point, let us know, and we'll be glad to bring you back on." [Hannity, 9/24/09]

Breitbart on O'Reilly: "We will be advertising Hannah and James' legal defense fund." After Bill O'Reilly asked, "[D]o you have lawyers helping you with it because, you know, this is expensive," Breitbart stated, "We're -- we're working on that right now. And I want everybody to know that we will be advertising Hannah and James' legal defense fund at The amount of -- the responses so far in e-mail form are overwhelming."

Not that she'll need the money: The lawsuit's weak, the jury will be on her side, and apparently Hannity's set to beam this link out to America on tonight's show, which means she'll be swimming in dough come morning." Allahpundit further promised, "I'll post the info for O'Keefe's defense fund once it's available." [, 9/24/09]

NewsBusters: Breitbart "Reveals Defense Fund Initiative." Promoting Breitbart's O'Reilly Factor appearance, NewsBusters quoted Breitbart's promotion of the legal defense fund and included a link to Breitbart's [, 9/24/09]

Breitbart, Beck distributed secretly taped ACORN videos. O'Keefe first posted his secretly recorded video on Breitbart's in an effort to engage in -- in the words of Breitbart -- "a multimedia, multiplatform strategy" that included Fox News. Fox News, led by Glenn Beck, went on to facilitate Breitbart's "strategy" of releasing the videos."

What would the reaction be if CNN or MSNBC hyped the idea of donating to ACORN to help them get legal redress and fight the smears? They'd be up in arms and citing it as proof of liberal bias. The fund-raising for the illegal videotapers has just begun and there are going to be some deep pockets donating.

The only dirt done in this whole mess was by ACORN, amazing how FOX reported this and other networks opted to turn a deft ear then bam, the gov. is pulling funds , various states are pulling funding and ACORN is firing people..In my book that says FOX was right all along..Shame on MSNBC,CBS,NBC ,ABC ect..very poor reporting and totally politicially biased..Those are the trash networks, Dems in their back pockets and afraid to report the truth...
Why is it the Democrats are afraid of the truth getting out ?? Obama and his little gang of intimidating thugs will not win in this , the more they attempt censorship, the more it blows up in their face. The facts stand on their own, ACORN is a corrupt organization, one Obama supported and worked with for 20 years..A little late to cover it up now..

We passed a few words around here not too long ago about how goofy Beck's presentations are. And they are,but....he gets the story. He has been reporting on Obama's connections to Chicago politics and the Daly machine. Right on. That is a filthy mess he will regret being attached to. I was aware of Obama's ties,but not Michelle's. She and her family are in it neck deep. It tickles me to think about all the crap we had to listen to about Bush's corrupt practices. Jeeez. Bush is a SAINT compared to this crew. Radicals, terrorists, and tax cheats behind every door.As the gold paint flakes offa this clown,he loses popularity. And justly so.
