AP Makes Up Connection Between ACORN Video and Conservative Media

How the ACORN 'pimp and hooker' videos came to be

Associated Press- "...the fresh-faced O’Keefe and Giles connected with a pair of Washington conservative institutions that boast programs training ideological journalists.

Now, due to coordinated promotion of the undercover sting footage by influential players in the conservative media, Giles and O'Keefe have gone from part of the pack to movement superstars.

Giles... spent the summer... training organization whose alumni include conservative commentator Ann Coulter... O'Keefe, 25, was paid to set up magazines and newspapers on university campuses for the Leadership Institute, which recruits potential conservative public policy and media stars.

Each has other credentials that place them squarely in the network of activists who believe liberal-leaning mainstream media willfully ignore stories that illustrate the failings of the political left and its leaders.[Other credentials, like what? AP doesn't back up its enormous claim at all here]

O'Keefe and Giles insist that no one helped them... There's no proof that a coordinated effort to commission the project, [isn't that just the claim you made a few paragraphs back?] but O'Keefe and Giles did discuss it with several conservative activists starting at least a month before its Sept. 10 premiere. [which activists?] One key result of those discussions was phenomenal promotion. [what promotion?]...

Breitbart said he shopped the material to a prominent network news personality at least a week before the eventual launch, but was told the network would never air it because of the politics behind it...

Through a spokesman, Beck and his production company declined comment on any possible role in orchestrating the story's roll-out."

AP tries to concoct a story of a conservative media network producing these videos. But that's just not the case. The pair happened to do some work at journalist organizations some time back. That's it.

The only thing suspicious here is AP's timing:

ACORN sues Breitbart, O’Keefe, and Giles for exposing corruption
