(Newser) – The weird plot by James O'Keefe (aka ACORN pimp) to seduce a CNN reporter and secretly film it is too much even for one of his biggest supporters. "From what I’ve read about this script, though not executed, it is patently gross and offensive," writes Andrew Breitbart at BigJournalism. "It’s not his detractors to whom he also owes this public airing. It’s to his legion of supporters."

Breitbart backed O'Keefe on his ACORN sting and defended him during his flap with Sen. Mary Landrieu. Both were cases in which the "left-leaning media exposed its obvious bias." Not this time. CNN's Abbie Boudreau and her producer "conducted themselves professionally, and I believe James owes them a candid and public explanation."
