James O'Keefe is an idiot

Posted By on Wed, Jul 20, 2011 at 6:54 AM

Renegade right-wing undercover filmmaker James O'Keefe, who's had a disproportionate impact with his dishonestly edited and generally empty work, has descended into self-parody with his latest, Talking Points Memo reports.

In addition to this video, he has another in which purported Russian drug dealers talk to a human services worker about Medicaid for their father. Sounds bad at first blush. But it's meaningless. Among other flaws in this scenario, it doesn't matter how rich or criminal a person's kid is — that person is still entitled to Medicaid if poor enough. Stupid stuff.

New teachers in Bentonville may make almost $46,000 a year, but new teachers in many other districts will start the 2018-19 school year earning $31,800 — less than the starting salary in Tulsa.
  • Anonymous Harding University students relaunch LGBTQ publication, campus security removes copies

    A group of anonymous Harding University students on Friday published an "HU Queer Press 2.0" zine, covering issues of gay rights at the private, Churches of Christ-affiliated campus in Searcy. A similar publication, "The State of the Gay at Harding University," set off a firestorm of controversy at Harding seven years ago. Shortly after the publication was distributed, campus security officers began gathering the copies of the zine and throwing them in the trash.
