Politics: The New York Times admits to getting the ACORN facts wrong

  • Public editor Clark Hoyt set the record straight. With ACORN’s pending closure taking over the news today, it’s perhaps a sad footnote to the scandal that The New York Times admits to misrepresenting the case. Among other things, Hoyt says (and founder Andrew Breitbart agrees that) James O’Keefe never dressed as a pimp during his visits to ACORN – just at the beginning and end of videos when he wasn’t actually in their offices. The damage is done, though. ACORN is now dead. (ACORN housing, however, lives on under a different name.) source
