Pulitzer Prize Winning New York Times Reporter Reminisces About His James O'Keefe Days

Pulitzer Prize Winning New York Times reporter James Risen took to Twitter Tuesday to reminisce about the good old days when he did what the mainstream media condemns James O’Keefe for doing: going undercover to break news and report a truth.

Risen is a beloved and trusted member among the same mainstream media elites who attack, undermine, or outright ignore the undercover work James O’Keefe has done to get to the truth of issues like voter fraud and the way in which media sacred cows like ACORN, Planned Parenthood, and National Public Radio conduct business.
