There was only a few months back acorn offices were put under the microscope scope -- hidden videos show the -- willing to.
To help set up underage prostitution rings a new video.
New hidden video is out this time from Los Angeles.
But the tape is selling a slightly different -- they did run into one person this time that was not willing to help and set up a prostitution ring however.
Another -- to do research to get them started let's bring in a man behind these tapes filmmaker James O'Keefe joining us from West Palm Beach and you know what struck me about that is.
What do we a couple of months down the road.
Are these old videotapes that you're releasing a lot over -- -- -- you recently made these tapes are acorn officers.
Or people in acorn office is still willing.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- These are neither original tapes we film all at one time.
We just we just decided to rule them out on one of the times that -- it's the appropriate not a media attention it deserves.
Right and James one of the things that.
Think everybody applauds him gone after people that are I don't know helping prostitutes.
And pimps and child trafficking happen on the planet instead of I don't know reporting that type of stuff but I got to ask you you know look but it goes and acorn we're talking about a hundred million here and there whatnot.
You choose acorn as the target when there I don't know much bigger targets for example say Goldman Sachs the Wall Street -- all kinds of other corruption out there.
Well first of all I'm just getting started in my journals and career and will probably.
Go after other targets but this is that this is an organization.
Acorn which many people on the establishment media have been refusing to investigate.
So I look at it like maybe -- and I are compensating.
Where others are -- -- anything to do any independent sort of creative investigative journalism.
Don and acorn -- -- -- reasonably they're corrupt because I mean just take a look at the media in there and there was no independent journalism on on acorn.
So that's why we decided to do it.
But James if you want to be considered a real journalists and not just the conservative activists just doing stuff on behalf of your conservative agenda.
And the pretend you're somebody you're not you have to tell the person that you're a journal -- and you have to you can't pretending -- Of that sort if I did that couldn't.
The Roger Ailes would probably fire me because it's unethical -- a journalist at the real journalist.
I mean last -- stead kudos.
For uncovering that products are taxpayer money this year was -- -- million.
But you know it's questionable your tactic that's as a journalist and I've always been a journalist and that a school.
That's where I'm like you know it doesn't sit well Alan my stomach that aspect of it.
Well actually I mean if I'd gone into the Equant facility and said that I was.
I was an independent -- as a journalist and I want to do a story about corruption -- -- what do you think it would assess flood.
Think that I do you think of black journalists and dissidents -- -- that because you can't.
Lie about what you're doing and who you want -- you have to say -- journalist.
I think the people who take a look these tapes to see the truth.
About who these people -- how they operate penalty lives I'm demonstrating live how they operate and a I lied about who I was with sixty minutes used to lie about what they did NBC's to catch -- -- the same thing.
Is -- tactics that journalists is the journalism in its purest form.
And they've been using these tactics for years I don't understand why these -- don't do it anymore.
Hi Tim I have a question flare up by the way I'm done I'm -- for this you know dress up -- catching them doing things that are frankly illegal immoral on that.
Can -- investigative journalists just like you've never to catch a predator went but but anyway let's move on.
Anyone -- on your radar as CIU with the UAW and it was -- next target opponents saying that Bank of America laugh line.
IIRIR I actually did they did an investigative video on the Goldman Sachs it's called the bailout prize patrol was on YouTube in March.
So I'm not done a lot of them planned parent and I've done banks I've done acorn.
As for my next target I don't want to reveal that yet.
I ain't gonna tell you what -- little brother is watching Big Brother Orwell had it yeah that's the main thing that wanna be I've.
Supported on the -- they do uncovered that -- I'm just saying you know as a journalist.
That aspect of it.
Thank you very much for joining us on how far and good work thank you -- uncovering the -- brought.
