“On the Media”
You can listen to them or just read the transcript, too. An excerpt:
BOB GARFIELD: James, for example – for example, there were no fewer than six times in the raw NPR footage where Ron Schiller or his colleague took pains to tell you that, no, you cannot for five million dollars or any other sum buy coverage on NPR, you cannot influence the news organization. And yet, that is conspicuously absent. Where you edited in his amused reaction to Sharia law, he had evinced no such amused reaction to Sharia law. In fact, it had been cut from one place and dropped in another. What is that, if not obfuscation?
JAMES O’KEEFE: You’re making mountains out of a molehill here. That was an introductory sequence change that broadcast journalists use all the time. If you’re gonna try to mitigate all the dozen things he said by the supposed scene change of, of him sitting down at the table, it’s, it’s a losing argument. People will see right through it.
