ACORN's pattern and practice of lying

The conservative journalist team of James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles has played ACORN like a concert tour: Baltimore, D.C., New York City, and San Diego. City by city, a scandal unfolded and the nation watched in bewilderment as the duo, posing as a pimp and prostitute, proposed to commit crimes of tax evasion and underage illegal alien sex trafficking while mid-level managers from the organization did everything they could to assist them in their effort.

Despite having a serious lack of credibility, ACORN started spreading a story, shortly after the scandal began, that couldn't be substantiated to discredit the duo. Unsurprisingly, several major left-leaning newspapers and Media Matters believed them.

Fiction, courtesy of the Washington Post:

An ACORN spokesman said they were turned away in Miami, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, where workers called police and filed a report. (emphasis added)

Fiction, courtesy of the Philadelphia Daily News:

But when the phony pimp and prostitute tag team visited ACORN's local office, on Broad Street near Parrish, on July 24, they were apparently shown the door.

Philadelphia ACORN president Carol Hemingway said in a statement on Monday that "after causing a major disturbance, they were asked to leave the office, and a police report was filed."

Hemingway e-mailed copies of the incident report to the news media. No charges were filed against O'Keefe or Giles, and their visit to the City of Brotherly Love has not been part of a series of reports aired on the Fox News Channel.

Fiction, courtesy of Media Matters:

The Post ignored that O'Keefe and Breitbart previously claimed they were never turned away. Contrary to the Post's suggestion that O'Keefe only disputed the amount of time the filmmakers spent at the Philadelphia office, both O'Keefe and BigGovernment.com publisher Breitbart have claimed they were never turned away at all. (emphasis not added)

Fact, courtesy of O'Keefe and Giles:

Now that ACORN lied to you, Media Matters, what are you going to do?

Better question: Why we were ever supposed to believe this liberal criminal enterprise, especially without any evidence to support their claim? An organization that was created for the purpose introducing mayhem into the system, now all of a sudden was on the side of order?

This latest exposure of the organization's unethical and dishonest behavior confirms that nothing coming from ACORN can be trusted. Bertha Lewis, Katherine Conway-Russell, Tresa Kaelke have done nothing but perpetrate one lie after another to the American public.

Will their cohorts in the mainstream media come to their defense again? Can we trust them either?

No, because they are too busy trying to be good, liberal teammates as opposed to being the umpire, it's time to tell them, they're all out!
