James O’Keefe’s visited a Philadelphia ACORN office. Subsequently, Fox News ran what even they referred to as “heavily edited tape.” Captions aired on Fox News Channel stated, “Exposing ACORN: New Video Shows Unlawful Actions.” The problem? The video shows no such thing. Additionally, ACORN workers filed an incident report with Philadelphia police following O’Keefe’s visit.

Many of Russell’s statements in the video of the office visit were edited out and replaced with audio of O’Keefe purporting to explain what she said, but nothing in the video supports the claim that Philadelphia ACORN workers actually assisted O’Keefe and Giles with any “unlawful actions.” As Fox News reported: “The new eight-minute video depicts O’Keefe and Giles entering ACORN’s Philadelphia office and meeting with Conway-Russell. O’Keefe and Giles are seen speaking with Conway-Russell, but audio portions of the video are missing or edited in some portions.” O’Keefe later stated, “We muted the audio of the ACORN employees on the video” because of “ACORN’s legal attack upon us.”
